The hypothesis that nerve growth factor (NGF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) contribute to hyperalgesia resulting from nerve damage was tested in rats in which the sciatic nerve was partially transected on one side. Administration of antisera raised against NGF and BDNF relieved mechanical and thermal hyperalgesia in these animals. It has been(More)
The hypothesis that prostaglandins contribute to hyperalgesia resulting from nerve injury was tested in rats in which the sciatic nerve was partially transected on one side. Subcutaneous injection of indomethacin (a classic inhibitor of cyclo-oxygenase) into the affected hindpaw relieved mechanical hyperalgesia for up to 10 days after injection.(More)
The effect of magnetic stimulation (MS) on sciatic nerve injury was observed. After sciatic nerve was crushed in 40 Sprague Dawley (SD) rats, one randomly selected group (group D) was subjected, from the 4th day post-operatively to 3 min of continuous 70% of maximum output of MS daily for 8 weeks. The other group (group E) served as a control group. The(More)
The influence of pulsed magnetic stimulation (MS) on the sciatic nerve injury was investigated. Thirty rats were divided into three groups equally: MS group (A), electric stimulation (ES) group (B) and the control group (C). The MS and ES were applied immediately after the first 10 min of the sciatic nerve crush. Sciatic function index (SFI), toe spreading(More)
