Nerve growth factor (NGF) and its high-affinity receptor, TrkA, are one of the targets in the production of new drugs for the treatment of neuropathic pain. NGF contributes to both the initiation and maintenance of sensory abnormalities after peripheral nerve injury. This study examined the effects of IPTRK3, a new synthetic cell-penetrating peptide that(More)
BACKGROUND Activation of glial cells and the extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) signaling pathway play an important role in the development and maintenance of neuropathic pain. Curcumin can alleviate the symptom of inflammatory pain by inhibiting the production and release of interleukin and tumor necrosis factor. However, whether curcumin affects(More)
BACKGROUND Parvalbumin (PV), as a mobile endogenous calcium buffer, plays an important role in affecting temporospatial characteristics of calcium transients and in modulating calcium homeostasis. PV is expressed in neurons in the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) and spinal dorsal horn and may be involved in synaptic transmission through regulating cytoplasm(More)
The authors studied the changes of Evan blues(EB) of brain tissues and concentration of cytosolic free calcium ([Ca2+]i), and relationship between them and water content of brain tissues following freezing brain edema in rats, to elucidate mechanism and type of brain edema induced by freezing injury. The results indicated that there were close positive(More)
