It is not known as to whether the Achilles and patellar tendons contain neurokinin-1 (NK-1) receptors. This is a drawback when considering the fact that pain symptoms are frequent in these and as recent studies show that the pain symptoms might be cured via interference with blood vessel function. In the present study, the human Achilles and patellar tendons were examined concerning immunohistochemical expression of the NK-1 receptor. Chemically unfixed and fixed specimens, TRITC and PAP… CONTINUE READING
