Under halothane anaesthesia adult rats underwent unilateral sciatic nerve division, and proximal and distal nerve stumps were ligated and secured into silicone caps to prevent spontaneous regeneration. Treatment with N-acetylcysteine at doses of 300, 150, 10 and 1 mg=kg (n ¼ 5=group) commenced immediately postoperatively and was administered as a daily 1 ml intraperitoneal injection. 9% NaCl). The weight of the animals was assessed every three days and the dose adjusted accordingly. Two weeks following axotomy the L4 and L5 dorsal root ganglia were harvested bilaterally and fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde.
