New molecular mechanism of neuropathic pain in mice

14 julio 2015

A research group has demonstrated that the downregulation of spinal astrocyte connexin43 (Cx43) expression causes sustained neuropathic pain following peripheral nerve injury. Controlling the Cx43 expression using pharmacological approaches or gene therapy might serve as novel therapeutic strategies ameliorate neurological disorders in general and neuropathic pain in particular.img src=»″ height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
