About the Cover: MIF blockade alleviates SNI-induced thermal hypersensitivity and allodynia in accompanying with decrease in spinal TNF-α level. Neutralization of TNF-α produces identical effect on nociception as MIF inhibition did. However, MIF alone plays no role in nociceptive responses in normal animals. These data suggest that proinflammatory cytokine MIF involves in peripheral nerve injury-induced hypersensitivity by potentiating TNF-α signaling. (See page 283).
