Increased nociceptive sensitivity and nociceptin/orphanin FQ levels in a rat model of PTSD

Abstract

BACKGROUND Clinical studies indicate that post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) frequently shares co-morbidity with chronic pain. Although in animals acute stress-induced antinociception is well documented, the effect of PTSD-like stress on nociceptive sensitivity is unclear. Though a few studies measured nociceptive responses at a single time point, no… (More)
