Earlier studies have demonstrated that inflammation plays a role in the development of evoked pain following partial nerve injury. In this report, we demonstrate bilateral changes in interleukin-6 (IL-6) and nerve growth factor (nerve growth factor) levels following unilateral infraorbital nerve (infraorbital nerve) constriction. infraorbital nerve constriction resulted in an initial period of decreased mechanical sensitivity (1 and 3 days), followed by recovery (7 days) and then a marked… CONTINUE READING
