There has been recent evidence linking bradykinin (BK) receptors with inflammation. This study has investigated the involvement of BK receptors in two models of persistent inflammatory hyperalgesia in rats. In a Freund's adjuvant-induced hyperalgesia model and an ultraviolet (UV)-induced hyperalgesia model in rats the specific B2 antagonist, D-Arg[Hyp3, Thi5, D-Tic7, Oic8]-BK (HOE 140), was either ineffective or weakly active in reversing hyperalgesia. The specific B1 antagonist, des-Arg9… CONTINUE READING
