BACKGROUND Nociceptin is a 17-amino acid peptide and acts as a potent endogenous agonist of the opioid receptor-like1 receptor. Nociceptin is reported to depress glutamatergic transmission and to block the spinal facilitation that is thought to be mediated by the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor. In the present study, the authors investigated the effect of intrathecally administered nociceptin and NMDA antagonists on the level of thermal hyperalgesia after partial sciatic nerve injury in… CONTINUE READING
