Intracerebroventricular micro-injections of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs abolish reperfusion hyperalgesia in the rat's tail.

Prostaglandins are mediators of reperfusion hyperalgesia; their site of action may be in the periphery, in the central nervous system, or both. We have investigated whether prostaglandins play a role in the central nervous system during reperfusion hyperalgesia, by intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) micro-injection of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs… CONTINUE READING
