    Vasudeva Raghavendra
    Department of Anesthesiology, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, NH, USA
    Neuropsychopharmacology 29:327-34. 2004
    ..These results further support the hypothesis that spinal glia and proinflammatory cytokines contribute to the mechanisms of morphine tolerance and associated abnormal pain sensitivity...

    Department of Anesthesiology, Dartmouth Medical School, Lebanon, NH 03756, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 102:5856-61. 2005
    ..Further understanding of this early, specific, innate CNS/microglial response and how it leads to sustained glial/neuronal hypersensitivity may point to new therapies for the prevention and treatment of neuropathic pain syndromes...
