Pharmacology of Pain, Volume 9 presents the proceedings of the 3rd International Pharmacological Meetings held in Sao Paulo in 1966. The book includes papers on the mediators of pain; proteolytic enzymes as mediators of pain; and desensitization with capsaicin and related acylamides as a tool for studying the function of pain receptors. The text also covers the sensitization of nociceptors by 5-hydroxytryptamine in man; the possible role of serotonin in affective component of pain behavioral reaction in the rat; and the use of pain induced functional impairment for assessing analgesic action. Papers on the clinical pharmacology of analgesics and analgesic antagonists; behavioral mechanisms of human pain; and central nervous mechanisms involved in pain and analgesia are also considered. The book further tackles the neuropharmacology of pain and analgesia; the interrelationship of cortical and subcortical pain systems; and the interaction of fast- and slow-conducting fiber systems involved in pain and analgesia.
