A water-soluble synthetic spicamycin derivative (San-Gly) decreases mechanical allodynia in a rodent model of neuropathic pain.

The goal of this study was to examine the effects of synthetic spicamycin derivative, SAN-Gly, on mechanical allodynia in a spared nerve injury animal model of neuropathic pain. Adult male rats underwent surgical ligation and cutting of the common peroneal and tibial nerves, which produced a mechanical allodynia within 2-4 days. One week after the surgery, SAN-Gly was administered via intravenous injection. Mechanical allodynia was measured using von-Frey hairs. Spicamycin produced a significant reduction in mechanical allodynia for up to 6 weeks. This study demonstrates that SAN-Gly may be of potential use in treating patients with neuropathic pain.[1]
