Life Sci. 2009;85:462-9 pubmed publisher..This study shows that the Catwalk gait analysis system can be used to objectively quantify LPS-induced monoarthritis weight bearing changes in all four limbs and evaluate pharmacological antinociception in freely moving mice. ..

J Neuroimmunol. 2009;214:78-82 pubmed publisher..Thus, LPS-induced changes in CD200-CD200R equilibrium might keep microglia chronically activated. Minocycline does not effectively inhibit microglia activation induced by high-dose LPS. ..
