  1. 1. Peripheral Regulation of Pain and Itch

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elín Ingibjörg Magnúsdóttir; Malin C. Lagerström; George H. Caughey; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pain; itch; CGRP; TRPV1; mast cell; mast cell protease; mMCP4; mMCP6; CPA3; endothelin-1; compound 48 80; MRGPRX2; single-stranded oligonucleotide;

    Abstract : Pain and itch are diverse sensory modalities, transmitted by the somatosensory nervous system. Stimuli such as heat, cold, mechanical pain and itch can be transmitted by different neuronal populations, which show considerable overlap with regards to sensory activation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Signaling Mechanisms in the Neuronal Networks of Pain and Itch

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Katarzyna Rogoz; Klas Kullander; Malin Lagerström; Stephen McMahon; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mouse genetics; neuronal network; glutamate; sensory neuron; dorsal root ganglion; pain; itch; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : Glutamate is the essential neurotransmitters in pain pathways. The discovery of the vesicular glutamate transporters (VGLUT1-3) has been a fundamental step on the way to describe glutamate-dependent pain pathways. We used the Cre-lox system to construct conditional knockouts with deficient Vglut2 transmission in specific neuronal populations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Targeting and driving somatosensory neurons

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fabio Freitag; Malin C. Lagerström; Andrew Todd; [2020]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pain; Itch; GRPR interneurons; dorsal horn; trigeminal nucleus caudalis; Barrel field;

    Abstract : Pain and itch are two distinct sensations, but the fundamental question of how our nervous system distinguishes the processing and encoding of their related information is still far to be clearly delineated. At the spinal cord level, evidences have pointed out specific groups of neurons expressing the gastrin releasing peptide (Grp) and its receptor (Grpr) as responsible for carrying specifically itch-related information.

  4. 4. Sensory mechanisms in the human upper airway - Role of TRP ion channels

    University dissertation from Clinical Chemistry and Pharmacology, Dept of Laboratory Medicine

    Author : Lisa Alenmyr; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TRPV1; TRPV4; TRPA1; allergic rhinitis; itch; rhinorrhea; MUC5B; MUC5AC; epithelial;

    Abstract : The nasal mucosa is richly innervated with sensory nerves having the ability to detect changes in the environment and mediate symptoms such as secretion and itch. Some TRP ion channels such as TRPV1 and TRPA1 are abundantly expressed in sensory nerves and respond to a wide variety of stimuli, including irritants, inflammatory mediators and temperatures.

  5. 5. Partial vaginismus definition, symptoms and treatment

    University dissertation from Institutionen för klinisk och experimentell medicin

    Author : Maria Engman; Barbro Wijma; Lotti Helström; [2007]

    Abstract : Vaginismus is a sexual pain disorder, where spasm of musculature of the outer third of the vagina interferes with intercourse. Vaginismus exists in two forms: total vaginismus, where intercourse is impossible, and the more seldom described partial vaginismus, in which intercourse is possible but painful. READ MORE
