BACKGROUND/PURPOSE In a recent study, we found that baicalin exhibited a potent analgesic effect on carrageenan-evoked thermal hyperalgesia. The underlining mechanisms may be associated with inhibition of inflammatory mediator overproduction, including proinflammatory cytokines, nitric oxide (NO), and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). In the present study, we(More)
Although mechanisms underlying ultra-low dose naloxone-induced analgesia have been proposed, possible interactions with glutamatergic transmission and glial cell activation have not been addressed. In the present study, we examined the effect of ultra-low dose naloxone on spinal glutamatergic transmission and glial cell activity in rats chronically infused(More)
