JTC-801, a nociceptin antagonist, may alleviate neuropathic pain because nociceptin has been shown to produce pain modulation. We report that JTC-801 alleviates heat-evoked hyperalgesia and investigated the possible protective effect on osteoporosis induced by chronic constriction injury (CCI) in rats. JTC-801 was given orally to rats with CCI at 0%(More)
Orexin-A and orexin-B are endogenous ligands of orexin receptors that contain orexin-1 and orexin-2. Activation of the orexinergic system can produce antinociceptive effects in acute inflammatory, mono-neuropathic, and postoperative pain animal models, though the effects of orexins on diabetic neuropathic pain have not been previously investigated. In this(More)
Etodolac, a cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor, may alleviate nociceptive pain and inhibit the activation of osteoclasts. The aim of the present study was to determine whether etodolac can alleviate heat-evoked hyperalgesia and investigate its possible protective effects on osteoporosis induced by chronic constriction injury (CCI) in rats. A CCI to the sciatic(More)
Orexin-A, a hypothalamic peptide found in the neurons of the lateral hypothalamus, has been shown to modulate pain. We examined whether orexin could alleviate heat-evoked hyperalgesia in rats caused by chronic constriction injury (CCI) of the sciatic nerve. Orexin-A, orexin-B, the vehicle, or orexin-A-antiserum was intrathecally administered to CCI rats.(More)
Chronic constriction injury (CCI) to the rat sciatic nerve results in osteopenia in the affected hind limb. One possible mechanism for this osteopenia is neurogenic inflammation, in which neuropeptides, represented by substance P (SP), are involved. We attempted to determine whether capsaicin treatment, which can deplete SP from nerve terminals, is(More)
