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.

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)
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)
