Gait abnormalities and inflammatory cytokines in an autologous nucleus pulposus model of radiculopathy.

Journal Article, Research Support, N.I.H., Extramural, Research Support, Non-U.S. Gov't

The authors investigated gait abnormalities and mechanical hypersensitivity associated with invertebral disc herniation in a rat model of radiculopathy. Further evaluation involved assessing how nucleus pulposus (NP) injury affected systemic cytokine expression and molecular changes at the dorsal root ganglion (DRG).
