OBJECTIVE To investigate the changes of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression in the spinal cord dorsal horn after intrathecal a specific p38MAPK inhibitor-SB203580 on neuropathic pain in rats induced by chronic constrictive injury (CCI) to the sciatic nerve. METHODS Twenty-four male SD rats after intrathecal catheter placement were randomly divided into 4 groups: a sham group with sham surgery, the neuropathic pain model of a NS group, a DMSO group and an SB group were established by CCI to… Expand

Sinomenine alleviates dorsal root ganglia inflammation to inhibit neuropathic pain via the p38 MAPK/CREB signalling pathway.
TLDR
Sinomenine inhibited the apoptosis of DRG cell by regulating p38 MAPK/CREB signalling pathway, which provides evidence to alleviate neuropathic pain in clinic. Expand

Changes in expression of cyclooxygenase-2 in the spinal dorsal horn after intrathecal p38MAPK inhibitor SB203580 on neuropathic pain in rats.
TLDR
The expression of spinal COX-2 was higher in the NS group and the DMSO group than in the sham group, but lower in the SB group more than in NS groupand the D MSO group. Expand
Analgesic effect of intrathecal SB203580 in a rat model of neuropathic pain
TLDR
Intrathecal administration of SB203580 can attenuate the hyperalgesia induced by CCI and inhibition of CREB phosphorylation in the spinal dorsal horn is involved in the mechanism. Expand
p38/MAPK Inhibitor Modulates the Expression of Dorsal Horn GABA(B) Receptors in the Spinal Nerve Ligation Model of Neuropathic Pain
TLDR
A dynamic change of GABA(B)R1a protein expression in the spinal dorsal horn could be prevented by intrathecal administration of a p38/MAPK inhibitor SB203580, which provides valuable information for a better understanding of neuropathic pain and may contribute to developing effective treatments in future studies.

Prostanoid receptor EP1 and Cox-2 in injured human nerves and a rat model of nerve injury: a time-course study
TLDR
EP1 receptor level increase in sensory neurones, and macrophage infiltration, appears to precede increased Cox-2 expression by macrophages, and EP1 antagonists may show therapeutic effects in acute and chronic neuropathic pain, in addition to inflammatory pain. Expand
Cyclooxygenase-2 expression in Schwann cells and macrophages in the sciatic nerve after single spinal nerve injury in rats
TLDR
Using immunohistochemistry, biphasic increases of COX-2 expression after L5 single spinal nerve injury were observed and suggested that the cellular sources of COx-2expression might be different between the early and late phases after nerve injury. Expand
Interleukin‐6 induces microglial CX3CR1 expression in the spinal cord after peripheral nerve injury through the activation of p38 MAPK
TLDR
A new mechanism of neuropathic pain is suggested, in which IL‐6 induces microglial CX3CR1 expression in the spinal cord through p38 MAPK activation, enhancing the responsiveness of microglia to fractalkine in the spine, thus playing an important role in neuropathicPain after peripheral nerve injury.

Inhibition of p38 mitogen‐activated protein kinase attenuates interleukin‐1β‐induced thermal hyperalgesia and inducible nitric oxide synthase expression in the spinal cord
TLDR
The results suggest that p38 MAPK plays a pivotal role in i.t. IL‐1β‐mediated iNOS–NO cascade in spinal nociceptive signal transduction and thermal hyperalgesia in rats. Expand

Development of catheterization for subarachnoid space in rats
TLDR
The new method is safe and has less negative effect for catheterization of subarachnoid space in rats and all rats passed the horizontal wire test in the group of lumbarCatheterization. Expand

TLDR
The results show that the electronic pressure-meter provides a sensitive, objective and quantitative mechanical nociceptive test that could be useful to characterize new nOCiceptive inflammatory mediators and also to evaluate new peripheral analgesic substances. Expand
