Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma agonist pioglitazone alleviates hemorrhage-induced thalamic pain and neuroinflammation.


Li D, He L, Yuan C, Ai Y, Yang JJ


Thalamic pain frequently occurs after stroke and is a challenging clinical issue. However, the mechanisms underlying thalamic pain remain unclear. Neuroinflammation is a key determining factor in the occurrence and maintenance of hemorrhage-induced thalamic pain. Pioglitazone is an agonist of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) and shows anti-inflammatory effects in multiple diseases. The present work focused on exploring whether PPARγ is related to hemorrhage-induced thalamic pain.
