We present a new method for creating conditions conducive to axonal growth in injured optic nerves of adult rabbits. The surgical approach consists of making a cavity in the adult rabbit optic nerve, into which a piece of nitrocellulose soaked with conditioned medium originating from regenerating fish optic nerves is implanted. In addition, daily irradiation (10 days, 5 min, 35 mW) with low energy He-Ne laser is carried out. Such a combined treatment may open a door to neurobiologists and clinicians, hoping to unravel the enigma of mammalian CNS regeneration.
