Example text

L-type calcium channels appear to be localized post-synaptically where they serve to enhance substance P-evoked neurotransmission [54]. L-type calcium channel antagonists potentiate analgesia produced by -opioid agonists and block the induction of opioid tolerance. Ionotropic Glutamate Receptor Ion Channel Modulators The development of allodynia and hyperalgesia following nerve injury and inflammation is in part due to increased synaptic excitability manifested by longterm potentiation (LTP) in central pain pathways mediated by NMDA ionotropic glutamate receptors [55].

Depending on the nature of the transmitter involved in the transmission, the receptors can be differentiated into both the kainite- and the AMPA-receptor ( -amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4isoxazole-propionic acid) respectively (Figures I-27 and I-28). The NMDA-receptor in regard to the mediation of pain is of importance, because it is a fast-acting ion channel that regulates the outward shift of sodium and calcium ions and the inward shift of potassiumions. Only a minute binding at the NMDA-receptor via the two excitatory amino acids glycine and glutamate results in marked potentiation of excitatory effect, and a propagation of nociceptive action potentials.

This is followed by modulators of sodium, potassium and calcium channels, P2 receptors, ionotropic glutamate receptors and finally nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, all of Neurophysiology of Pain – Type of Receptor Sites Involved in Therapy 25 Analgesics “central analgesics” (opioids) Agonists Methadone Sufentanil Fentanyl Remifentanil Alfentanil Morphine Pethidine Hydromorphone Levorphanol “peripheral analgesics” (antipyretics) Agonist/ Antagonists Partial Agonists Pentazocine Nalbuphine Butorphanol Dezocine Buprenorphine Meptazinol Nonacetic Acid Derivative Aniline Pyrazolone derivatives Acetic Acid Derivative (NSAIDs) Diclofenac Ibuprofen Salicylates (ASA) Figure I-17.
