1. The objectives were to quantify the presence of neurogenic inflammation in 4 regions of the upper digestive tract of anaesthetised ducks (post-pharynx, pseudo-crop, transition between the pseudo-crop and the proventriculus, and proventriculus) after application of HCl stimulation of up to 4 M in the pseudo-crop. 2. The second objective was to quantify the presence of neurogenic inflammation in the same digestive tract regions as mentioned above during 4 feeding periods of foie gras… Expand

Results demonstrate that, in contrast to previous findings in the pigeon, at least in the trigeminal of the chicken peripheral C-fibre nociceptors have similar physiological characteristics in relation to the neurogenic inflammatory mechanism to those seen in mammals. Expand
Capsaicin fails to produce disturbances of autonomic heat and cold defence in an avian species (Anas platyrhynchos)
It is concluded that capsaicin fails to exert effects in birds on those afferents and central neurons which are involved in thermo- and nociception, in contrast to mammals in which these perceptive functions become severely impaired. Expand
Nociceptors in the legs of poultry: implications for potential pain in pre-slaughter shackling.
It was concluded that shackling of commercial poultry involves the insertion of each leg into parallel metal slots and holding the bird inverted for a period of time before stunning and slaughter. Expand
Gastric inflammation triggers hypersensitivity to acid in awake rats.
In awake rats, visceromotor responses to intragastric acid are quantifiable, reliable, and reproducible, consistent with a potential role of chemical stimulation in triggering dyspeptic symptoms. Expand
Sensory properties of articular afferents following Mycoplasma arthritis in the chicken
Changes in sensitivity of the joint capsule mechanical nociceptors provides peripheral neural evidence of possible pain experienced during the acute stage of the disease but not at the chronic stage when the disease might be in period of remission. Expand
Mechanisms of referred visceral pain: uterine inflammation in the adult virgin rat results in neurogenic plasma extravasation in the skin
A model of inflammatory uterinePain in the rat is developed, providing for the first time evidence for the trophic changes observed in the area of referred visceral pain in an animal model of uterine pain. Expand
Force-feeding procedure and physiological indicators of stress in male mule ducks
No significant indication that force-feeding is perceived as an acute or chronic stress by male mule ducks is observed, Nevertheless, it remains to be shown that their adrenocorticotropic axis is responsive to acute stressors. Expand
Substance P and bradykinin stimulate plasma extravasation in the mouse gastrointestinal tract and pancreas.
It is concluded that substance P stimulates extravasation in the gastrointestinal tract and pancreas of mice by interacting with the NK1 receptors, and capsaicin and bradykinin induce plasmaextravasation by stimulating tachykinin release from sensory nerves. Expand
Neuropeptides, neurogenic inflammation and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
Clinical findings in these animals strongly resemble clinical findings in CRPS, and can be prevented by anti-cytokine and anti-neuropeptide treatment, which favors the possibility that CRPS patients share genetic similarities. Expand
The effects of capsaicin applied to peripheral nerves on responses of a group of lamina I cells in adult rats
In adult rats, the sciatic and saphenous nerves on one side were treated topically with capsaicin and cells in the superficial dorsal horn of the lumbar cord with axons projecting in the contralateral dorsolateral funiculus were examined electrophysiologically on the treated and untreated sides of the cord.
