Spinal α2-adrenoceptors and neuropathic pain modulation; therapeutic target.

Bahari Z, Meftahi GH (2019) Spinal α2-adrenoceptors and neuropathic pain modulation; therapeutic target. Br J Pharmacol 176(14):2366-2381. doi: 10.1111/bph.14580

Objective: To provide an an overview of the cellular mechanisms through which brainstem adrenergic descending inhibitory processing can alter spinal pain transmission to the higher centres, and how these pathways change in neuropathic pain conditions focusing on the role of spinal α2‐adrenoceptors in the spinal dorsal horn.

Summary: The α2‐adrenoceptor agonist may be useful to treat neuropathic pain.
