The expression of artemin (ARTN), a glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) family ligand, increases in pre-clinical models of nociception and recent evidence suggests this growth factor may play a causative role in inflammatory pain mechanisms. The aim of this study was to demonstrate functional inhibition of ARTN with monoclonal antibodies and to determine whether ARTN neutralisation could reverse inflammatory pain in mice. We show that monoclonal antibodies with high affinity to… CONTINUE READING
