After sciatic nerve damage, local Schwann cells can shed off the myelin sheaths and transform to a neuroblast status, where their proliferation and migration capacities can help to sweep away myelin remnants and generate a conduit for the axonal pathfinding, and consequently form the beneficial conditions for neurite outgrowth (1-3).
