  • We investigated the systemic and site-specific actions of a selective CB(2) receptor agonist, A-836339 on mechanically evoked (10 g von Frey hair) and spontaneous firing of spinal wide dynamic range (WDR) neurons in neuropathic (L5 and L6 ligations) and sham rats. Systemic administration of A-836339 (0.3-3 micromol/kg, i.v.) reduced both evoked and spontaneous WDR neuronal activity in neuropathic, but not sham rats. The effects in neuropathic rats were blocked by pre-administration of a CB(2… CONTINUE READING
