The effects of electro-acupuncture (EAP) on the release of substance P (SP) and the responses evoked by tooth pulp stimulation (ST) in superficial layers of the trigeminal nucleus caudalis (Vc-I,II) were studied in rabbits. ST evoked increase in release of immunoreactive SP (iSP). This increase was inhibited by EAP in 9 of 13 animals. The potentials evoked by ST were composed of two main components with latency times of ca 4.3 msec and ca. 9.4 msec. The latter component, reflecting the excitation of A delta fibers, was significantly inhibited by CP-96,345 (3 mg/kg, i.v.), an SP antagonist. EAP also inhibited the latter component in 8 of 11 animals. These results suggest that one of the mechanisms of analgesia induced by EAP is inhibition of stimulus-evoked SP release in the Vc-I,II.
