Although in vitro studies have shown that nicotinic acid inhibits some aspects of the inflammatory response, a reduced number of in vivo studies have investigated this activity. To the best of our knowledge, the effects induced by nicotinic acid in models of nociceptive and inflammatory pain are not known. Per os (p.o.) administration of nicotinic acid(More)
In this study we characterized the nociceptive response and edema induced by the venom of the scorpion Tityus serrulatus in rats and mice and carried out a preliminary pharmacological investigation of the mechanisms involved in these responses. Intraplantar injection of the venom (1 or 10mug) induced edema and a marked ipsilateral nociceptive response,(More)
Although there is evidence for the anti-inflammatory activity of nicotinamide, there is no evaluation of its effects in models of nociceptive and inflammatory pain. In addition, there is no information about the potential anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive activities of the nicotinamide isomers, picolinamide and isonicotinamide. Per os (p.o.)(More)
The effects induced by Apis mellifera venom (AMV), melittin-free AMV, fraction with molecular mass < 10 kDa (F<₁₀) or melittin in nociceptive and inflammatory pain models in mice were investigated. Subcutaneous administration of AMV (2, 4 or 6 mg/kg) or melittin-free AMV (1, 2 or 4 mg/kg) into the dorsum of mice inhibited both phases of formaldehyde-induced(More)
