  1. 1. A clinical image of migraine. On prevalence, impact of disease, natural course of attacks and influence of 5-HT1B/1D-agonists

    Author : Mattias Linde; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; migraine; epidemiology; Sweden; burden; quality of life; natural course; triptans; sensitization; allodynia; hyperalgesia;

    Abstract : The first, large nationwide survey of the epidemiology of migraine in Sweden was performed. The one-year prevalence is 13.2 b1.9% (16. READ MORE

  2. 2. A tailored biocompatible neural interface for long term monitoring in neural networks

    University dissertation from Neuronano Research Center (NRC)

    Author : Per Köhler; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Brain-machine interfaces; neuroinflammation; somatosensory cortex; hyperalgesia; allodynia;

    Abstract : Neural interface electrodes that can record from neurons in the brain for long periods of time will be of great importance to unravel how the brain accomplishes its functions. However, current electrodes usually cause significant glia reactions and loss of neurons within the adjacent brain parenchyma. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development of Substance P 1–7 Related Peptides and Peptidomimetics Targeting Neuropathic Pain

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna Skogh; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Substance P 1–7; Peptidomimetics; Solid-phase Peptide Synthesis SPPS ; Palladium catalysis; Carbonylation; Imidazole; Bioisostere; Neuropathic pain; Allodynia; Structure-activity relationships; Medicinal Chemistry; Läkemedelskemi;

    Abstract : The neuropeptide substance P 1–7 (SP1–7, H-Arg1-Pro2-Lys3-Pro4-Gln5-Gln6-Phe7-OH) and its amidated analogue SP1–7 amide, have displayed intriguing effects in experimental models for neuropathic pain acting on a specific, yet unknown SP1–7 target. The aim of this thesis was to design and synthesise SP1–7 related peptides and peptidomimetics, to be used as research tools to study the SP1–7 system, and to serve as drug leads in the neuropathic pain area.

  4. 4. Dynamic mechanical allodynia in peripheral neuropathic pain : Psychological observations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Monika Samuelsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dynamic mechanical allodynia; Brush-evoked allodynia; Brush-evoked pain; Neuropathic pain; Pain descriptors; Repeatability; Human pain model; Capsaicin; Psychophysical observations;

    Abstract : Introduction and aim: Pain due to a light moving mechanical stimulus, dynamic mechanical allodynia, is a protruding symptom/sign in subgroups of patients with peripheral neuropathic pain and frequently as troublesome as spontaneous ongoing pain. The objective of this thesis was to survey psychophysical details of dynamic mechanical allodynia using a novel semi-quantitative method. READ MORE

  5. 5. Experimental tooth clenching : a model for studying mechanisms of muscle pain

    University dissertation from Faculty of Odontology, Malmö University

    Author : Andreas Dawson; Malmö University.; [2013]
    Keywords : ODONTOLOGY; ODONTOLOGI; Medicine; tooth clenching; muscle pain; bruxism; Delphi technique; pain measurement; masticatory muscles; experimental pain; proprioceptive allodynia; temporomandibular disorders; serotonin; glutamate; masseter muscle; microdialysis;

    Abstract : The overall goal of this thesis was to broaden knowledge of pain mechanisms in myofascial temporomandibular disorders (M-TMD). The specific aims were to: • Develop a quality assessment tool for experimental bruxism studies (study I). • Investigate proprioceptive allodynia after experimental tooth clenching exercises (study II).
