&NA; Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain conditions are poorly understood. Since formalin is a noxious stimulus widely used in animal behavioral experiments for studying pain mechanisms, the aim of this study was to develop a behavioral model to study the TMJ pain conditions by characterizing the nociceptive behavioral responses induced by the injection of formalin into the TMJ region of rats. NaCl (0.9%) or different concentrations of formalin (0.5, 1.5, 2.5 or 5%) were administrated into the… Expand
Effects of ethanol on deep pain evoked by formalin injected in TMJ of rat.
TLDR
Ethanol can affect the nociceptive responses related to deep pain evoked by the TMJ formalin test, and results show that alcohol withdrawal effects on nocICEptive behavioral responses induced by the injection of formalin into the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) region of rats. Expand
Chewing-like as a possible behavior of persistent orofacial pain in the experimental temporomandibular dysfunction
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Stimulations with formalin in the orofacial region can be related to transient or subacute nociceptive activity and behavioral changes. The evaluation of behavioral changesExpand
Development of a behavior model of pain induced by experimental tooth movement in rats.
TLDR
Direct face-grooming behavior can be a reliable measure for tooth-movement pain in rats, which could be widely used in investigating the orthodontic pain mechanism, and application of both systemic and peripheral morphine and MK-801 could exert an analgesic effect on this pain model. Expand
Time-dependent analysis of nociception and anxiety-like behavior in rats submitted to persistent inflammation of the temporomandibular joint
TLDR
The results suggest that the temporomandibular inflammation induced by CFA produced anxiety-like behaviors in rats and induced nociceptive behavior across different periods of inflammation. Expand
The effects of restraint stress on nociceptive responses induced by formalin injected in rat's TMJ
TLDR
It is suggested that repeated stress can produce hyperalgesia, which is, at least in part, due to alterations in the activity of opioid systems, which may help elucidate the underlying neural mechanisms that mediate the effects of repeated stress on orofacial pain. Expand
Characterization and opioid modulation of inflammatory temporomandibular joint pain in the rat.
TLDR
Mustard oil inflammation of the rat TMJ causes reliable behavioral changes, which may be quantified and, together with Fos expression, used to assess various experimental TMJ treatment modalities. Expand
Nociceptive behavioural assessments in mouse models of temporomandibular joint disorders
TLDR
Modifications of three existing methods to analyse nociceptive behaviours using two TMD mouse models found that the UAC model and β-catenin conditional activation mouse model were significantly associated with signs of increased mechanical allodynia, lower bite force, and decreased spontaneous feeding behaviour, indicating manifestations of TMD. Expand
Involvement of peripheral TRPV1 in TMJ hyperalgesia induced by ethanol withdrawal.
TLDR
Results indicate that the peripheral TRPV1 can contribute to the hyperalgesia induced by ethanol withdrawal on deep pain conditions. Expand
Characterization of a model of chronic orofacial hyperalgesia in the rat: contribution of NA(V) 1.8.
TLDR
The results described in this report are novel with respect to the duration of orofacial hypersensitivity produced and suggest that pharmacological targeting of the voltage-gated sodium channel Na(v)1.8 may be useful in managing hypersensitivity. Expand
Influence of orofacial pain, in superficial and deep tissue, on the anxiety levels in rats
TLDR
The results suggest that the orofacial nociceptive response induced by the injection of 1% formalin in the lip or TMJ region increases the anxiety level in rats and that Diazepam® can reduce it. Expand

The orofacial formalin test in rats: effects of different formalin concentrations
TLDR
The findings indicate that the orofacial formalin test should be carried out using concentration between 0.5 and 2.5% to assess increase as well as decrease in pain intensity, which will have the effect of minimizing the suffering of the experimental animal. Expand
The formalin test: scoring properties of the first and second phases of the pain response in rats
TLDR
It was found that pain scores increase with ambient temperature and that rat strains may differ in formalin pain sensitivity, and that no single behavioural measure was a strong predictor of formalin, morphine and amphetamine dose. Expand
Evidence for a peripheral origin of the tonic nociceptive response to subcutaneous formalin
TLDR
It is demonstrated that both the first and second phases of the nociceptive response to formalin depend on primary afferents activation and, consequently, that the second phase cannot be mediated by central sensitisation alone. Expand
The formalin test in mice: dissociation between inflammatory and non-inflammatory pain
TLDR
It is suggested that the early phase is due to a direct effect on nociceptors and that prostaglandins do not play an important role during this phase, and the late phase seems to be an inflammatory response with inflammatory pain that can be inhibited by anti‐inflammatory drugs. Expand
Application of the formalin test to the study of orofacial pain in the rat
TLDR
The results indicate that this orofacial formalin test is a valid technique for the study of oroFacial pain. Expand
The formalin test: an evaluation of the method
TLDR
The main features of the formalin test are described, including the characteristics of the stimulus and how changes in nociceptive behaviour may be measured and interpreted, and it is argued that the peripheral tissue temperature as well as other factors influencing the peripheral inflammation may affect the response. Expand
Is there a correlation between scores of nociceptive behavioral responses to formalin injections given at different body sites in the rat?
TLDR
Correlations between behavioural nociceptive responses to an injection of formalin solution in the hindpaw and upper lip were sought in 28 male rats divided into two groups but a significant correlation between lip rubbing and paw licking occurred in both groups. Expand
The formalin test in mice: effect of formalin concentration
TLDR
It was concluded that the formalin concentration should be kept as low as possible to minimize the suffering of the animal and to show the antinociceptive effect of morphine and acetylsalicylic acid. Expand
The formalin test: A quantitative study of the analgesic effects of morphine, meperidine, and brain stem stimulation in rats and cats
TLDR
The formalin test is a statistically valid technique which has two advantages over other pain tests:: (1) little or no restraint is necessary, permitting unhindered observation of the complete range of behavioral responses; and, (2) the pain stimulus is continuous rather than transient, thus bearing greater resemblance to most clinical pain. Expand
Effects of subcutaneous formalin on the activity of trigeminal brain stem nociceptive neurones in the rat.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the mono- and biphasic neurons may have different roles in the transmission of nociceptive information induced by the peripheral injection of Formalin. Expand
