A total of 36 male Wistar rats weighing about 300 g were divided into three experimental groups of 12 animals each: 1) sham-operated, animals that underwent surgery and exposure of the median nerve, but were not subjected to nerve injury, and were treated with GBP; 2) operated-vehicle, animals that underwent surgery and exposure of the median nerve with subsequent nerve injury by crushing followed by stretching (stretch-induced nerve injury as described below), and were treated with the GBP vehicle; 3) operated-GBP, animals that underwent surgery and exposure of the median nerve with subsequent nerve injury, and were treated with GBP.
