Neuroinflammation in Neuropathic Pain Indicated by Elevated Levels of Proinflammatory Chemokines in CSFOctober 17, 2017
Patients with neuropathic pain have elevated levels of a set of pro-inflammatory chemokines compared with healthy individuals, suggesting ongoing neuroinflammation.
A recently published case series describes a new subtype of chronic daily headache that appears to be associated with elevated cerebrospinal fluid pressure.
Findings from a recent study were unable to show a cause and effect relationship between headache and cerebrospinal fluid pressure in idiopathic intracranial hypertension, despite that headache is typically the first symptom.
The cerebrospinal fluid of patients with vs without intervertebral disc degeneration with and without low back pain was shown to differentially express proteins involved in inflammation and nerve injury.
