Prolactin-releasing peptide (PrRP) and neuropeptide FF (NPFF) are RF-amide peptides expressed in brain areas involved in pain modulation. NPFF displays multiple effects on acute, inflammatory and neuropathic pain. The potential role of PrRP in pain was addressed by intrathecal and intracerebral injections of PrRP on pain-related responses in both(More)
