Effects of neurotropin in pain syndromes
- 41 Downloads
Neurotropin is shown to hinder the development of a neuropathic pain syndrome induced in rats by sciatic nerve transection and to produce a curative effect in animals that have already developed the pain syndrome. Neurotropin does not prevent the occurrence of adjuvant-induced arthritis in rats but significantly diminishes its manifestations. The observed effects of this agent are attributed to its action on different components of the pathological algetic system.
