- Increased intraepidermal nerve fiber density [ Time Frame: 1 year ]If Metanx® is able to reverse nerve damage and improve symptoms then the final nerve biopsies will show an increase in intraepidermal nerve fiber density
- Subjective improvement [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Improvement in the subjective score versus the placebo group.
