This side effect of CIPN limit the dose of drug used in many chemotherapies, such as vincristine (VCR). The activation of microglia in the spinal dorsal horn is involved in the occurrence and development of neuropathic pain induced by VCR. Recent study has demonstrated that hypoxia induced microglia activation depends on Notch signaling, and it is involv...

Abstract A 27-year-old woman with sudden back pain was transported to our hospital. Abdominal ultrasonography revealed pregnancy of 28 weeks ’ gestation. Computed tomography demonstrated a type A aortic dissection. Because of progressive fetal deterioration, an emergency cesarean section was forced to perform. The next day, simple hysterectomy followed by an aortic procedure was completed. Valve-sparing aortic replacement and total arch replacement were employed as central operations. The mother and baby are well 9 months postoperatively. Although the strategy for acute type A aortic dissection during pregnancy is co...

This study used an optogenetic approach to selectively activate spinal interneurons that express the calcium-binding protein calretinin (CR). We show that these interneurons form an interconnected network that can initiate and sustain enhanced excitatory signaling, and directly relay signals to lamina I projection neurons. Photoactivation of CR interneurons in vivo resulted in a significant nocifensive behavior that was morphine sensitive, caused a conditioned place aversion, and was enhanced by spared nerve injury. Furthermore, halorhodopsin-mediated inhibition of these interneurons elevated sensory thresholds. Our result...

ConclusionsCrowned dens syndrome should be considered, and craniocervical junction imaged in the context of acute cervical or occipital pain with stiffness and elevated inflammation markers not only in patients previously diagnosed with calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate arthropathy but also in diverse clinical settings.Key Points•This report highlights that crowned dens syndrome should be considered in various clinical setting besides calcium pyrophosphate dehydrate (CPPD) arthropathy.• Vigilance to this syndrome allows rapid treatment and may spare the patient unnecessary invasive procedures (i.e., temporal artery...

ConclusionIn patients with knee OA, those with WSP demonstrated greater degrees of PS compared with those with knee OA only, LBP and multi-joint pain. They also demonstrated a slower SCT compared with those with KOA only and LBP and decreased self-reported function compared with those with KOA only. These results should be confirmed in a longitudinal study.Key Points• In people with knee OA and widespread pain, measures of sensitization, self-reported function and physical performance were poorer compared with those with knee OA and LBP, knee OA and multi-joint pain or knee OA only.• Clinicians can consider these...

In this study, we measured the analgesic effects of different intrathecal doses of SRT1720 on BCP in a murine model and further examined whether SRT1720 attenuated BCP by suppressing CREB/CREB-regulated transcription coactivator 1 (CRTC1) signalling pathway. Our results demonstrated that the BCP mice developed significant mechanical allodynia and spontaneous flinching, which were accompanied by the upregulation of phospho-Ser133 CREB (p-CREB) and CRTC1 expression in the spinal cord. SRT1720 treatment produced a dose-dependent analgesic effect on the BCP mice and downregulated the expression of p-CREB and CRTC1. These resul...
