Increases in the concentration of brain derived neurotrophic factor in the lumbar spinal dorsal horn are associated with pain behavior following chronic constriction injury in rats.

Abstract

Animals exhibiting thermal hyperalgesia as a sign of neuropathic pain 7 days after loose ligation of the sciatic nerve exhibited a significant increase in the concentration of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in their lumbar spinal dorsal horn. In contrast, following the disappearance of thermal hyperalgesia 28 days after loose ligation of the… (More)
