Objective:To standardize an experimental model of chronic monoarthritis induced by complete Freund’s adjuvant appropriate for the analysis of the effect of walking on nociception and on joint edema.METHODS:The following factors were evaluated as to monoarthritis induction: route and site of administration, number and interval of inoculations, Mycobacterium species, and animal gender. Wistar male and female rats (200 to 250g) received two injections of complete Freund’s adjuvant containing Mycobacterium tuberculosis (1.0mg/mL; 50µL) or Mycobacterium butyricum (0.5mg/mL; 50µL) intra-articularly in the tibiotarsal […]
