A new animal model of neuropathic pain utilizing loose ligation of a peripheral nerve has been previously reported. In addition to displaying abnormal pain symptoms such as allodynia and hyperalgesia, physiologic and morphologic changes are seen in spinal cord dorsal horn neurons. Two weeks after ligation of the right common sciatic nerve, rat dorsal horn… CONTINUE READING
