Porreca F, Ossipov MH, Gebhart GF (2002) Chronic pain and medullary descending facilitation. Trends Neurosci 25(6):319-325. doi: 10.1016/s0166-2236(02)02157-4
Objective: To examine the likelihood that sustained activation of descending modulatory pathways that facilitate pain transmission could underlie some states of chronic pain.
Summary: Rats treated with Dermorphin-SAP, either before or after spinal nerve ligation injury, did not display neuropathic pain behaviors, although normal nociceptive responses were intact.
Usage: Rostroventromedial medulla (RVM) injected with Dermorphin-SAP.
