Blocking the tropomyosin receptor kinase A (TrkA) receptor inhibits pain behaviour in two rat models of osteoarthritis (2015)
Journal Article
Nwosu, L. N., Mapp, P. I., Chapman, V., & Walsh, D. A. (in press). Blocking the tropomyosin receptor kinase A (TrkA) receptor inhibits pain behaviour in two rat models of osteoarthritis. Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases, 75(6), https://doi.org/10.1136/annrheumdis-2014-207203

Objectives: Tropomyosin receptor kinase A (TrkA) mediates nociceptor sensitisation by nerve growth factor (NGF), but it is unknown whether selective TrkA inhibition will be an effective strategy for treating osteoarthritis (OA) pain. We determined th... Read More about Blocking the tropomyosin receptor kinase A (TrkA) receptor inhibits pain behaviour in two rat models of osteoarthritis.

Effects of pro-inflammatory cytokines on cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptors in immune cells (2015)
Journal Article
Jean-Gilles, L., Braitch, M., Latif, M. L., Aram, J., Fahey, A. J., Edwards, L. J., …Constantinescu, C. S. (2015). Effects of pro-inflammatory cytokines on cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptors in immune cells. Acta Physiologica, 214(1), 63-74. https://doi.org/10.1111/apha.12474

© 2015 The Authors. Aims: To investigate the regulation of cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 on immune cells by pro-inflammatory cytokines and its potential relevance to the inflammatory neurological disease, multiple sclerosis (MS). CB1 and CB2 sign... Read More about Effects of pro-inflammatory cytokines on cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptors in immune cells.

Calcitonin gene-related peptide-expressing sensory neurons and spinal microglial reactivity contribute to pain states in collagen-induced arthritis (2015)
Journal Article
Nieto, F. R., Clark, A. K., Grist, J., Chapman, V., & Malcangio, M. (2015). Calcitonin gene-related peptide-expressing sensory neurons and spinal microglial reactivity contribute to pain states in collagen-induced arthritis. Arthritis and Rheumatology, 67(6), https://doi.org/10.1002/art.39082

Objective To evaluate the contribution of sensory neurons in ankle joints and adjacent tissue to the development of pain in collagen‚Äźinduced arthritis (CIA), and to determine the relationship between pain and the appearance of clinical signs....

Dissecting the contribution of knee joint NGF to spinal nociceptive sensitization in a model of OA pain in the rat (2015)
Journal Article
Sagar, D. R., Nwosu, L. N., Walsh, D. A., & Chapman, V. (2015). Dissecting the contribution of knee joint NGF to spinal nociceptive sensitization in a model of OA pain in the rat. Osteoarthritis and Cartilage, 23(6), https://doi.org/10.1016/j.joca.2015.01.010

Objective: Although analgesic approaches targeting nerve growth factor (NGF) for the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA) pain remain of clinical interest, neurophysiological mechanisms by which NGF contribute to OA pain remain unclear. We investigated t... Read More about Dissecting the contribution of knee joint NGF to spinal nociceptive sensitization in a model of OA pain in the rat.
