Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is a debilitating condition that affects approximately 50 per cent of diabetic patients. The symptoms of neuropathy include numbness and tingling or pain in the arms and legs. If left untreated, patients with numbness might develop foot ulcers, which might ultimately require foot amputation. Currently the only method of directly examining peripheral nerves is to conduct skin punch biopsies, which are uncomfortable and invasive.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
