The sodium channel Nav1.7 is involved in paclitaxel-induced peripheral neuropathy though ERK1/2 signaling in rats.



Paclitaxel treatment is a major cause of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy. The sodium channel Nav1.7 plays a critical role in pain perception. However, whether Nav1.7 in the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) is involved in paclitaxelinduced peripheral neuropathy remains unclear. Thus, our study aimed to evaluate whether Nav1.7 participates in the pathogenesis of paclitaxel-induced neuropathy.
