Abstract: ABSTRACT Background: Persistent pain that remains long after the physiological trigger has been resolved is a disabling condition. A possible mechanism for the transition from acute physiological pain to persistent pain involves low-grade inflammation in the central nervous system, in which inflammatory-activated astrocytes play a significant role. Aims: The aims of this thesis were to explore novel means for the restoration of inflammatory-activated astrocytes and to investigate whether such ... more
