Various animal models of neuropathic and inflammatory pain are established and acute visceral pain induced by acetic acid (AA) is an animal model that mimics some of the acute inflammatory responses seen in muscular injury [1-5]. Copaifera sp., popularly known as “copaiba,’’ is a large tree that grows abundantly in the Amazonas. The oil-resin of this plant is a popular remedy, in its natural form. Copaifera officinalis was the first species in the genus Copaifera to be described [6-8]. Many…

Behavioral testing in rodent models of orofacial neuropathic and inflammatory pain

This work examines the available testing methods and procedures used for assessing the behavioral responses in the face in both mice and rats and provides a summary of some pharmacological agents used in these paradigms to date.

Effect of copaiba oil on acute pancreatitis in mice

A significant reduction in protein plasma extravasation of damaged pancreatic tissue was observed in mice that received copaiba oil, confirmed biochemically by reduction of protein plasmaExtravasation, and associated with reduced plasma amylase and MPO activity.

Central components in the antinociceptive activity of dipyrone in mice

Evidence is provided for a central antinociceptive effect of dipyrone antagonized by naloxone which suggests that its activity may also involve the serotoninergic system.

Effect of copaiba oil in hepatic damage induced by acetaminophen in rats.

Copaiba oil administered prophylactically for seven days, and therapeutic could reduce liver damage caused by paracetamol similarly N-Acetyl-Cysteine, however, when treated with copaiba therapeutically showed increases in bilirubin, costs increasing fraction indirect.

Effects of systemic non‐steroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs on nociception during tail ischaemia and on reperfusion hyperalgesia in rats

It is concluded that the mechanisms underlying nociception during ischaemia are not the same as those underlying reperfusion hyperalgesia, and the procedure provides a rapid and more humane method for measuring the antinociceptive potency of NSAIDs.

Clinical pharmacology of analgesics assessed with human experimental pain models: bridging basic and clinical research

The presently identified agreements and non‐agreements between analgesic effects on experimental and on clinical pain may serve as a solid basis to identify complex sets of human pain models that bridge basic science with clinical pain research.

The abdominal constriction response and its suppression by analgesic drugs in the mouse.

An examination of the ability of a number of substances, including some occurring in tissues and causing pain in man, to elicit abdominal constriction responses in mice and new forms of abdomen constriction test in the mouse are described.

Evidence for activation of the tissue kallikrein‐kinin system in nociceptive transmission and inflammatory responses of mice using a specific enzyme inhibitor

The pharmacological activity of phenylacetyl‐Phe‐Ser‐Arg‐N‐(2,4‐dinitrophenyl)‐ethylenediamine (TKI), a tissue kallikrein specific inhibitor, was assessed using models of nociception and inflammation in mice and it is concluded that TKI presents antinociceptive and antiinflammatory activities mediated by inhibition of kinin formation by tissue k allikre in mice.

A role for ASIC3 in the modulation of high-intensity pain stimuli

It is postulated that ASIC3 is involved in modulating moderate- to high-intensity pain sensation, when stimuli of moderate to high intensity were used.
