Although in vitro studies have shown that nicotinic acid inhibits some aspects of the inflammatory response, a reduced number of in vivo studies have investigated this activity. To the best of our knowledge, the effects induced by nicotinic acid in models of nociceptive and inflammatory pain are not known. Per os (p.o.) administration of nicotinic acid(More)
The research on sex differences in nociception and antinociception as well as sex and gender differences in pain and analgesia is a maturing field. There is a vast literature showing experimental and clinical pain suppressive effects induced by minocycline, especially in inflammatory pain. However, as far as we know, possible qualitative or quantitative sex(More)
While the role of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT, serotonin) in the nociceptive processing has been widely investigated in the central nervous system, information regarding its role in peripheral tissues is still lacking. Noteworthy, 5-HT induces phenotypic changes of nociceptors and peripheral injection induces pain in humans and nociceptive response in(More)
Although there is evidence for the anti-inflammatory activity of nicotinamide, there is no evaluation of its effects in models of nociceptive and inflammatory pain. In addition, there is no information about the potential anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive activities of the nicotinamide isomers, picolinamide and isonicotinamide. Per os (p.o.)(More)
Benzaldehyde semicarbazone (BS) inhibited zymosan writhing response, carrageenan paw edema and both phases of formaldehyde nociceptive response. 2-hydroxybenzaldehyde semicarbazone (2-OHBS) and semicarbazide inhibited carrageenan paw edema and the second phase of formaldehyde nociceptive response. 2-OHBS inhibited zymosan writhing response. 3- and 4-OHBS(More)
Nicorandil (2-nicotinamide ethyl nitrate), an antianginal drug characterized by the coupling of nicotinamide with a nitric oxide (NO) donor, activates guanylyl cyclase and opens ATP-dependent K(+) channels. In the present study, we investigated the effects induced by per os (p.o.) administration of nicorandil (12.5, 25 or 50 mg/kg) or equimolar doses(More)
The leaves of Echinodorus grandiflorus (Alismataceae) are traditionally used in Brazil to treat inflammatory conditions. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the antidematogenic activity of crude aqueous, dichloromethane and hydroethanolic extracts from E. grandiflorus leaves using the carrageenan-induced paw edema model in mice, along with of(More)
