Neuroinflammatory mechanisms linking pain and depression
Depression and chronic pain have been estimated to co-occur in up to 80% of patients suffering from these disorders, with this co-morbidity being more disabling and more expensive to both patients and society than either ...
Chronic administration of amitriptyline differentially alters neuropathic pain-related behaviour in the presence and absence of a depressive-like phenotype
Chronic pain and depression share a complex, reciprocal relationship. Furthermore, in addition to treating depression, antidepressants such as amitriptyline are a first-line treatment for chronic pain conditions, indicating ...
Minocycline modulates neuropathic pain behaviour and cortical M1-M2 microglial gene expression in a rat model of depression
There is a paucity of data on the role of microglia and neuroinflammatory processes in the association between chronic pain and depression. The current study examined the effect of the microglial inhibitor minocycline on ...
Altered neuropathic pain behaviour in a rat model of depression is associated with changes in inflammatory gene expression in the amygdala
The association between chronic pain and depression is widely recognized, the comorbidity of which leads to a heavier disease burden, increased disability and poor treatment response. This study examined nociceptive ...
