As expected, the pathways involved in the determination of granulocyte/ agranulocyte adhesion, death receptor signaling, IL-17 signaling, TNFR1/2 signaling, communication between innate and adaptive immune cells, signaling pathway underlying the cytokine-mediated crosstalk among different types of immune cells, role of cytokines in mediating communication between immune cells, IL-6 signaling, inflammasome pathway, role of pattern recognition receptors in recognition of bacteria and viruses, and apoptosis signaling pathways were activated in cells treated for 3 h.
We found that four immune/inflammatory-related pathways, including agranulocyte adhesion and diapedesis, granulocyte adhesion and diapedesis, IL-6 signaling, and IL-10 signaling, were sustained activated during the whole process of nerve regeneration.
Although dipyrone has great relevance in Brazilian clinical practice [32], commercialization of this drug is prohibited in most developed countries in the face of severe adverse reactions that may occur, such as the depressive effect of the bone marrow, which may result in aplastic anemia and, mainly, agranulocytes [33, 34].
