Acute neurogenic or non-neurogenic inflammation was elicited in skin patches innervated by the saphenous nerve of anaesthetized Sprague Dawley rats. Lambda carrageenan was used to induce non-neurogenic inflammation, mustard oil (allyl-iso-thio-cyanate) or antidromic nerve stimulation to induce neurogenic inflammation. Antidromic nerve stimulation yielded… (More)
