This study aims to assess the effectiveness of(More)
Netrin-1 is a neuronal guidance molecule implicated in the development of spinal cord neurons and cortical neurons. In the adult spinal cord, UNC5H (repulsive receptor of netrin-1), but not deleted in colorectal cancer (DCC) (attractive receptor of netrin-1), constitutes a major mode of netrin-1 signal transduction, which may be involved in axon repulsion(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have shown that electroacupuncture (EA) has a significant effect on acute pain, but it has not solved the clinical problem of the chronification of acute pain. Diffuse noxious inhibitory controls (DNIC) function as a reliable indicator to predict the risk of chronic pain events. DNIC function in knee osteoarthritis (KOA) patients(More)
Activation of cannabinoid receptor-2 (CB2) results in β-endorphin release from keratinocytes, which then acts on primary afferent neurons to inhibit nociception. However, the underlying mechanism is still unknown. The CB2 receptor is generally thought to couple to Gi/o to inhibit cAMP production, which cannot explain the peripheral stimulatory effects of(More)
Background Calpain is a calcium-dependent cysteine protease, and inhibition of calpain by pre-treatment with MDL28170 attenuated the rat mechanical allodynia in a variety of pain models. Postherpetic neuralgia (Shingles) is a neuropathic pain conditioned with the presence of profound mechanical allodynia. Systemic injection of resiniferatoxin can reproduce(More)
