Peripheral neuropathy is a common complication of diabetes and is often accompanied by episodes of pain. There is evidence that diabetic neuropathy may affect the trigeminal nerve, altering the transmission of orofacial sensory information. Structural changes in the trigeminal ganglia may be involved in the development of these sensory alterations. Herein, we evaluate the development of orofacial sensory changes after streptozotocin-induced diabetes in rats, and their sensitivity to pregabalin… CONTINUE READING
