Resiniferatoxin (RTX) is a vanilloid agonist with a unique spectrum of activities. Vanilloids bind to the transient receptor potential ion channel subtype 1, a nonselective cation ionophore important in the integration of different noxious signals. Vanilloid agonists selectively decrease sensitivity to noxious stimuli. In this study, we sought to determine(More)
It was found that the surname-based representation of Jewish authors in the top US biomedical journals corresponds to the representation of Jewish Nobel Laureates in Medicine among US laureates: Both of them are almost equally disproportionately high, with the ratio of actual to expected number close to 20 (Kissin, Scientometrics 89:273–280, 2011). The main(More)
BACKGROUND The vanilloid receptors (TRPV1) are found in peripheral nerve fibers; their stimulation by capsaicin leads to release of calcitonin gene-related peptide and other neuropeptides participating in neuroinflammation. On the other hand, various inflammatory mediators, released after nerve damage, can activate or sensitize the TRPV1 receptors. These(More)
The long-lasting imprint of acute pain in the central nervous system may contribute to the transition of acute pain to chronicity. The long-term potentiation (which is proposed as a mechanism of memory) and central sensitization were each reported as a form of synaptic plasticity, and both can be initiated by stimulation of C fibers. In the current study,(More)
UNLABELLED Capsaicin can produce a selective and long-lasting neural blockade. Resiniferatoxin (RTX) is an ultrapotent vanilloid agonist with a unique spectrum of activities different from that of capsaicin. We sought to determine whether a single application of RTX to a peripheral nerve could completely prevent the long-lasting mechanical hyperalgesia(More)
