  • In electrophysiological and behavioral experiments on rats we studied the effects of pefloxacin, a member of fluoroquinolone family, on the nociceptive system. Intraperitoneal injection of pefloxacin (80 mg/kg) decreased the thresholds of nociceptive response to noxious stimulation in the hot-plate test. In addition, it decreased the threshold of the late component of nociceptive flexor reflex. Intrathecal application of pefloxacin in a dose of 20 μg provoked allodynia, while the higher dose of… CONTINUE READING
