Table 2 Numbers of intraepidermal nerve fibres in paw pad skin for other nerve fibre markers

From: Antigen-induced arthritis in rats is associated with increased growth-associated protein 43–positive intraepidermal nerve fibres remote from the joint

  Controls Acute AIA Chronic AIA
CGRP 10.57 ± 2.13 12.21 ± 2.12 11.50 ± 1.88
SP 5.38 ± 1.05 4.87 ± 2.17 5.27 ± 1.30
TRPV1 7.17 ± 2.44 6.92 ± 5.41 6.46 ± 4.65
β-tubulin 26.63 ± 7.69 23.58 ± 6.54 22.34 ± 3.89
  1. Numbers of IENFs per mm length of epidermis that were positive for calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), substance P (SP), transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1), and β-tubulin in left (ipsilateral) paw pad skin are presented as mean ± standard deviation. There were no significant changes in counts of IENFs for these nerve fibre markers
