  • Itch sensation is provoked by the binding of itch inducing substances (pruritogens) to their cognate receptors (pruriceptors) on peripheral sensory afferents. [...] Key Result In comparison with single acetone treatment, continuous AEW treatment showed increased induction of scratching behavior, with the latter depending on the number of treatments.Expand Abstract
