However, it is believed that low frequency sonic wave vibration treatment reduces central excitability by restoring DNIC, and reduces temporal summation and that this decrease in acute pain and/or central excitability will improve function and gait.
DNIC also reported that most detained traffickers in 2011 were Angolan, but some Brazilian, South African, Nigerian, Portuguese and Congolese (DRC) nationals were also detained for trafficking in narcotics.
Prediction of chronic post-operative pain: Preoperative DNIC testing identifies patients at risk.
It has been proposed that a noxious stimulus can activate various antinociceptive mechanisms, such as diffuse nocicep tive inhibitory control (DNIC) (18), propriospinal antinociceptive responses (19) and descending modulatory system (20) ; however, the action of calcium channels blockers, [beta]-adrenergic blockers and digoxin on these antinociceptive mechanisms has not been extensively analysed.
These include diffuse noxious inhibitory controls (DNIC), descending pain inhibitory pathways from the arcuate nucleus in the hypothalamus, neurohormonal responses and central control of autonomic nervous system from the arcuate nucleus (Carlson, 2002; White, 1999).
Repeated painful stimuli seem also to have a role in the alterations of the diffuse noxious inhibitory control (DNIC), described as low functioning in patients with RA [82].
Vanin (Semenov Institute of Chemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences) and his colleagues, it was established that S-nitrosothiols present in cells can easily interact with iron ions released from the iron donor ferritin to form dinitrosyl iron complexes (DNIC) [10,11].
