The experimental arthritis of the knee joint used in the present study leads to joint swelling, increased joint temperature, limping, guarding, and a decrease in paw withdrawal latency (PWL) to radiant heat (hyperalgesia) within hours in rats. Unexpectedly, administration of the non-NMDA receptor antagonist, CNQX, in the spinal cord 4 h after initiation of(More)
Following induction of acute knee joint arthritis in rats, an increase in the release of amino acids in the spinal dorsal horn occurs in two phases: (1) at the time of injection for all amino acids tested; and (2) a late prolonged phase for aspartate (Asp) and glutamate (Glu) (3.5-8 h). In the present study, the increased late phase release of Glu was(More)
Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) is a widely-used rodent model for multiple sclerosis (MS), but a single model can hardly capture all features of MS. We investigated whether behavioral parameters in addition to clinical motor function scores could be used to assess treatment efficacy during score-free intervals in the relapsing-remitting EAE(More)
Sensitization of the heat-activated ion channel Transient Receptor Potential Vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) through lipids is a fundamental mechanism during inflammation-induced peripheral sensitization. Leukotriene B4 is a proinflammatory lipid-mediator whose role in peripheral nociceptive sensitization is to date not well understood. Two major G-Protein-coupled(More)
Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathic pain (CIPNP) is a severe dose- and therapy-limiting side effect of widely used cytostatics that is particularly difficult to treat. Here, we report increased expression of the cytochrome-P450-epoxygenase CYP2J6 and increased concentrations of its linoleic acid metabolite 9,10-EpOME (9,10-epoxy-12Z-octadecenoic(More)
