Association between systemic inflammation and experimental pain sensitivity in subjects with pain and painless neuropathy after traumatic nerve injuries.


Peripheral neuropathies that occur secondary to nerve injuries may be painful or painless, and including a low-grade inflammation and pro-inflammatory cytokines associated with both regeneration and damage of peripheral nerve cells and fibers. Currently, there are no validated methods that can distinguished between neuropathic pain and painless neuropathy. The aim of this study was to search for proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory proteins associated with pain and experimental pain sensitivity in subjects with surgeon-verified nerve injuries in the upper extremities.
