From: Effect of herbal extracts on peripheral nerve regeneration after microsurgery of the sciatic nerve in rats

Group (n) NCV (m/s) PA (mV) DA (mV)
Group 1 (11) 88.45 ± 22.68 12.60 ± 2.97 12.19 ± 4.24
Group 2 (8) 108.61 ± 45.30 14.86 ± 5.84 14.06 ± 6.33
Group 3 (10) 113.31 ± 41.86 14.48 ± 3.74 14.12 ± 3.74

Group 5 (10) 95.53 ± 30.58 17.92 ± 6.24 18.93 ± 6.39
  1. Group 1: Control, Group 2: Astragalus mongholicus Bunge, Group 3: Coptis japonica (Thunb.) Makino, Group 4: Aconitum carmichaelii Debeaux, Group 5: Paeonia lactiflora Pall
  2. NCV Nerve conduction velocity, PA Proximal amplitude, DA Distal amplitude
  3. aOne-way ANOVA
  4. Only the Aconitum carmichaelii Debeaux group had a significantly higher amplitude in the proximal and distal parts than the control group (p = 0.002 and p = 0.041, respectively)
