The distribution of nerve fibers displaying calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) immunoreactivity in the mandibular mucosa was studied in control rats, in rats after unilateral transection of the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN), and in animals following cervical sympathetic denervation. According to the results, the transection of the peripheral branch of the IAN has no effect on the distribution of the CGRP immunoreactive nerves.
