  1. Activating muscle stem cells: therapeutic potential in muscle diseases

    Boldrin L, Morgan JE. Activating muscle stem cells: therapeutic potential in muscle diseases. Curr Opin Neurol. 2007 Oct;20(5):577-82. PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The satellite cell is the principal muscle stem cell. Recent research, however, has highlighted new stem cell sources that, once activated in the muscle tissue, can participate in muscle regeneration. This article reviews the state of research on stem...
  2. Imaging pain modulation in health and disease

    Bingel U, Schoell E, Büchel C. Imaging pain modulation in health and disease. Curr Opin Neurol. 2007 Aug;20(4):424-31. PURPOSE OF REVIEW: In this review, we discuss recent advances in pain imaging research. We focus on the involvement of endogenous pain control mechanisms in the healthy central nervous system and the potential contribution of failure within this system for chronic pain...
  3. Central sensitization in fibromyalgia and other musculoskeletal disorders

    Arendt-Nielsen L, Graven-Nielsen T. Central sensitization in fibromyalgia and other musculoskeletal disorders. Curr Pain Headache Rep. 2003 Oct;7(5):355-61. Muscle hyperalgesia and referred pain play an important role in chronic musculoskeletal pain. New knowledge on the involved basic mechanisms and better methods to assess muscle pain in the clinic are needed to revise and optimize treatment regimens. Increased muscle sensitivity is...
  4. Mechanisms of pain modulation in chronic syndromes

    Bolay H, Moskowitz MA. Mechanisms of pain modulation in chronic syndromes. Neurology. 2002 Sep 10;59(5 Suppl 2):S2-7. Transmission of pain from the periphery to the cortex depends on integration and signal processing within the spinal cord, brainstem, and forebrain. Sensitization, a component of persistent or chronic pain, may develop either through peripheral mechanisms or as a consequence of altered physiology...
