Dr Robert O. Heuckeroth and his team at Washington University have been a long time user of Neuromics' Neurotrophins and Growth Factor and Neuropeptide and Neuropeptide Receptor Antibodies.
This has resulted in our monitoring his work on Enteric Nervous System (ENS) Development andHirschsprung Disease. We are pleased to present the most recent article referencing use of our Ret Antibody. In this study, he and his team find a link between Vitamin A and the disease. This suggests that some cases of Hirschsprung disease might be preventable by optimizing maternal nutrition.
