Description

Cenegermin, a recombinant form of human nerve growth factor. Nerve growth factor is an endogenous protein involved in the differentiation and maintenance of neurons, which acts through specific high-affinity (i.e. TrkA) and low-affinity (i.e. p75NTR) nerve growth factor receptors. The treatment with cenegermin, administered as eye drops, is intended to allow restoration of corneal integrity.
