    Introduction: The authors have recently shown that Activator-assisted spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) significantly reduces pain and hyperalgesia following intervertebral foramen (IVF) inflammation in rats. This study further examined effects of SMT on IVF inflammation-induced expression of...

    Rationale: We previously demonstrated that the morphine-induced rewarding effect was attenuated under a neuropathic pain-like state following partial sciatic nerve ligation in rodents. Furthermore, the up-regulation of protein kinase C (PKC) activity in the spinal cord is considered to be the...

    Evidence shows bidirectional crosstalk between neurons and glia, suggesting that glia play an active role in synaptic plasticity leading to chronic pain. Importantly, gliosis has been implicated in the development and maintenance of hyperalgesia or allodynia following chronic inflammation or...

    Background: Calcium-activated chloride channels (CaCCs) activation induces membrane depolarization by increasing chloride efflux in primary sensory neurons that can facilitate action potential generation. Previous studies suggest that CaCCs family members bestrophin-1 and anoctamin-1 are...
