Gene context of Temporal Muscle

  • Fourteen days after treatment, the VEGF gene therapy group displayed numbers and areas of capillary vessels in temporal muscles that were 2.2 and 2.5 times greater, respectively, in comparison with the control group [17].
  • Treatment with the CRSA reduced the activity index, although the prevalence of the temporal muscle over the masseter was maintained [18].
  • Neurokinin A (NKA), substance P (SP) and the two peptides combined (SP + NKA) were injected intracutaneously on the forearm and into the temporal muscle of healthy volunteers [14].
  • In the temporal muscle, 200 pmol of CGRP alone did not induce pain or tenderness but, in combination with SP or NKA, CGRP elicited a significant pain sensation [19].
  • AIM: To set up a reliable automated method of allowing to identify the ES1 and ES2 periods of exteroceptive suppression of the temporal muscle (EST), thereby reducing their intra- and inter-individual variability [20].
