In somatic models of central sensitisation (CS) allodynia develops following changes to somatic A-beta fibres, allowing these afferents which normally only process innocuous sensations to encode pain. The aim of this study was to determine whether somatic allodynia induced by visceral sensitisation occurs via N-Methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA) receptor mediated(More)
The morphological findings in sural nerve biopsy specimens from 15 diabetic patients with mild neuropathy were compared with control biopsies from eight non-neuropathic, non-diabetic subjects, and correlations were sought with electrophysiological studies and quantitative sensory tests for vibration, thermal, and current perception thresholds. Myelinated(More)

Morvan's syndrome is a rare autoimmune disorder characterized by triad of peripheral nerve hyperexcitability, autonomic dysfunction, and central nervous system symptoms. Antibodies against contactin-associated protein-like 2 (CASPR2), a subtype of voltage-gated potassium channel (VGKC) complex, are found in a significant proportion of patients with Morvan's(More)
Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) is a systemic necrotizing vasculitis that affects the small blood vessels. It mainly affects the upper and lower respiratory tract and kidneys.
