Antidepressants and gabapentinoids in neuropathic pain: Mechanistic insights

Neuroscience

Oct 27, 2016

Mélanie KremerMichel Barrot

Abstract

Neuropathic pain arises as a consequence of a lesion or disease affecting the somatosensory system. It is generally chronic and challenging to treat. The recommended pharmacotherapy for neuropathic pain includes the use of some antidepressants, such as tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) (...read more

Calcium & Bioenergetics

Bioenergetic processes, including cellular respiration and photosynthesis, concern the transformation of energy by cells. Here is the latest research on the role of calcium in bioenergetics.

Spinal Cord Neoplasms

Spinal cord neoplasms affect the spinal cord and arise from either within the spinal cord or from extramedullary structures that surround the spinal cord. The cancer can arise from different cell types such as the meninges surrounding the spinal cord, glial or nerve cells within the CNS. Here is the latest research on spinal cord neoplasms.

Neurotransmitters

Neurotransmitters are released from synaptic vesicles in presynaptic neurons in response to neural activity, diffuse across the synaptic cleft, and bind specific receptors in order to bring about changes in postsynaptic neurons. Here is the latest research.

Neuronal Plasticity

Neuronal plasticity is the brain’s ability to change its structure and function in response to internal or external factors. Here is the latest research on mechanisms that influence this process.

Limbic System

The limbic system is comprised of several different parts of the brain involved in emotion, motivation, learning, and memory. Discover the latest research on the limbic system here.

Barrel cortex

Here is the latest research on barrel cortex, a region of somatosensory and motor corticies in the brain, which are used by animals that rely on whiskers for world exploration.

Drug & Digital Interventions

This feed describes how digital interventions, which are digital and mobile technologies used to support health system needs, can complement and improve pharmacotherapy in disease management. Discover the latest research on drug and digtial intervention here,

Complications of Diabetes

This feed focuses on the complications of diabetes, including diabetic nephropathy, ketoacidosis, cardiomyopathy, and neuropathy.

Pharmacological Treatment of Allergies

Allergies, also known as allergic diseases, are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to typically harmless substances in the environment. There are various pharmacological treatments for allergy including antihistamines, anti-cholinergics, decongestants, etc. Discover the latest research on pharmacological treatment of allergies here.

Serotonin

Serotonin is a multifaceted neurotransmitter with various functions, including reward and learning. Discover the latest research, including the latest computational studies, of serotonin here.

Pain & Addiction

Chronic pain and addictive disorders present significant medical and public health problems; both are underdiagnosed and inadequately treated. The cooccurrence of pain and addiction adds complexity to the assessment and treatment of both disorders. Discover the latest reserch on pain and addiction here.

NMDA Receptor Signaling

The NDMA receptor is an ionotropic receptor that is activated when glutamate or glycine binds to it, initiating several downstream signaling cascades. NDMA receptor signaling is thought to be implicated in different pathologies, including depression. Here is the latest research on NDMA receptor signaling.

Functional Connectivity Networks

Functional connectivity networks represent specific patterns of synchronous activity and differ between healthy subjects, stages of consciousness and across disease. Discover the latest research on functional connectivity networks here.

Basal Ganglia

Basal Ganglia are a group of subcortical nuclei in the brain associated with control of voluntary motor movements, procedural and habit learning, emotion, and cognition. Here is the latest research.

RNA & Axonal Functions

This feed focuses on subcellular and translation regulation of RNA in Axons and how this influences Axonal Functions. Discover the latest research here.

Neurodegeneration: Endolysosome

This feed focuses on the role of the endolysosome, an organelle involved in protein degradation. Defects in the endolysosome may cause neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s Disease.

Amygdala and Midbrain Dopamine

The midbrain dopamine system is widely studied for its involvement in emotional and motivational behavior. Some of these neurons receive information from the amygdala and project throughout the cortex. When the circuit and transmission of dopamine is disrupted symptoms may present. Here is the latest research on the amygdala and midbrain dopamine.

Selective Ion Transport in Channels & Pumps

Ion channels and pumps are central to a number of cell functions, including membrane excitability and synaptic transmission. With sophisticated imaging, these channels and pumps have been characterized as selective for the ions, sodium, potassium chloride and calcium. Here is the latest research on selection ion transport in channels and pumps.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.

Peripheral Nervous System Diseases

Peripheral nervous system diseases cover a wide spectrum of disease affecting the peripheral nerves, with the most common being diabetic neuropathy. Discover the latest research on peripheral nervous system diseases here.

Lichtheim's Disease

Lichtheim's disease or subacute combined degeneration of spinal cord is a degenerative disease associated with deficiencies in vitamin B12, vitamin E, and copper. Here is a latest research.

Amygdala: Sensory Processes

Amygdalae, nuclei clusters located in the temporal lobe of the brain, play a role in memory, emotional responses, and decision-making. Here is the latest research on sensory processes in the amygdala.

Dopamine & Behavior

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter and a hormone commonly associated with the brain's pleasure and reward system. Here is the latest research on its role in affecting and guiding human behaviour.

Adrenergic Receptors: Trafficking

Adrenergic receptor trafficking is an active physiological process where adrenergic receptors are relocated from one region of the cell to another or from one type of cell to another. Discover the latest research on adrenergic receptor trafficking here.

NMDA antagonists: Antidepressant properties

Despite widely reported clinical and preclinical studies of rapid antidepressant actions of NMDA receptor antagonists, there has been very little work examining the effects of these drugs in stress models of depression that require chronic administration of antidepressants or the molecular mechanisms that could account for the rapid responses. Discover the latest research here.

Extracellular Space: Brain

The extracellular space (ECS) in brain occupies approximately twenty percent of the brain volume and is dynamic and highly regulated. Here is the latest research on ECS in the brain.

Opioids & Pain

Opioids work on opioid receptors to relieve pain and other medical symptoms. Here is the latest research on the therapeutic role of opioids and opioid receptors in pain management.
