PMID: 34023413.


Changes in inflammatory cytokine levels contribute to the induction and maintenance of neuropathic pain. We have shown that external low intensity focused ultrasound (liFUS) reduces allodynia in a common peroneal nerve injury (CPNI). Here, we investigate an underlying mechanism of action for this treatment and measure the effect of liFUS on inflammatory markers.
