Peripheral neuropathy induced by chemotherapeutic agents is the most common dose-limiting adverse effect observed in patients during and after treatment of malignancies. Many flavones have been reported to ameliorate neuropathy of different origin in experimental animals and their possible mode of action explored. The present study aims to investigate 7,3'-dihydroxyflavone for its anti-neuropathic effect against paclitaxel induced peripheral neuropathy in mice by employing behavioural tests such as mechanical allodynia, cold allodynia and thermal hyperalgesia. The possible involvement of GABA K channels and adenosine receptors in the anti-neuropathic effect of 7,3'-dihydroxyflavone was also studied by employing suitable interacting drugs. Treatment with 7,3'-dihydroxyflavone (50, 100 or 200 mg/kg, s.c) significantly and dose-dependently reduced the paw withdrawal response score in both mechanical and cold allodynia and also increased the tail flick response time in thermal hyperalgesia due to paclitaxel-induced neuropathy. Pre-treatment with glibenclamide (10 mg/kg, i.p), caffeine (50 mg/kg, i.p) or bicuculline (2 mg/kg, i.p) significantly reversed the anti-neuropathic effect of 7,3'-dihydroxyflavone in behavioral tests. In conclusion, the present investigation identified 7,3'-dihydroxyflavone as a potential candidate with anti-neuropathic effect against paclitaxel induced peripheral neuropathy involving K channels, adenosine and GABA receptors.
