Visceral Pain Models
By utilizing chemical-induced writhing models and meticulously tracking behavioral responses, we provide invaluable insights into the underlying mechanisms of visceral pain and the potential of your treatment.
Chemical-Induced Writhing Models
In chemical-induced writhing models, we utilize intraperitoneal injections of acetic acid solution or phenylquinone to induce a transient state of somatic (visceral) pain. This provokes distinct responses, including abdominal constriction, trunk twisting, and hind leg extension, all indicative of visceral pain.
