Morphine has been widely used in neonatal pain management. However, this treatment may produce adaptive changes in several physiologic systems. Our laboratory has demonstrated that morphine treatment in neonate rats alters nucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase (NTPDase) activity and gene expression in central nervous system structures. Considering the(More)
Morphine exposure during the neonatal period can promote changes in pain signaling pathways that can be expressed as an increased nociceptive response in adult life. Glutamate is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in primary afferent terminals and plays a critical role in normal spinal excitatory synaptic transmission. Considering the importance of a(More)
