The NMDA antagonist MK-801 induces hyperalgesia and increases CSF excitatory amino acids in rats: Reversal by guanosine

Antinociceptive effect of riluzole in rats with neuropathic spinal cord injury pain.

Riluzole may be an effective clinical analgesic for the treatment of below-level neuropathic SCI pain and there is a predominant supraspinal component of riluzoles-induced antinociception in SCI rats.

Estradiol attenuates spinal cord injury-related central pain by decreasing glutamate levels in thalamic VPL nucleus in male rats

Results suggest that glutamate in the VPL nucleus of the thalamus is involved in the pathology of neuropathic pain after STT injury; furthermore, 17β-estradiol may attenuate this neuropathicPain by decreasing glutamate levels.

Ethanol-induced alterations of amino acids measured by in vivo microdialysis in rats: a meta-analysis

The results provide standardized basal values for future experimental and in silico studies on neurotransmitters release in the rat brain and may be helpful to understand the effect of ethanol on neurotransmitter release.

blation of IB 4 non-peptidergic afferents in the rat facet joint revents injury-induced pain and thalamic hyperexcitability via upraspinal glutamate transporters

It is suggested that a painful facet injury induces changes extending to supraspinal structures and that IB4-positive afferents in the facet joint may be critical for the development and maintenance of sensitization in the thalamus after a painfulacet joint injury.

The results suggest that central sensitization and persistent nociception following formalin- induced tissue injury are dependent on the influx of calcium through predominantly NMDA receptor-operated (and to a lesser extent voltage- gated) calcium channels.

The effect of morphine on formalin‐evoked behaviour and spinal release of excitatory amino acids and prostaglandin E2 using microdialysis in conscious rats

It is demonstrated that both spinal EAA and PGE2 release patterns correlate with behavioural nociceptive responses in the formalin test and that morphine suppresses the formalIn‐evoked behaviours and spinal release.

The results suggest that EAAs acting at the NMDA receptor contribute to central sensitization and persistent nociception following subcutaneous formalin injection.

Intracellular Messengers Contributing to Persistent Nociception and Hyperalgesia Induced by L‐Glutamate and Substance P in the Rat Formalin Pain Model

The results suggest that central sensitization and persistent nociception following formalin‐induced tissue injury, and the hyperalgesia in the formalin test induced by L‐glutamate and substance P, are dependent on the intracellular messengers nitric oxide, arachidonic acid and protein kinase C.
