Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of ethanol and morphine on nociceptive behavioral responses evoked by the injection of formalin into the temporomandibular joint region of rats (the TMJ formalin test). In experiment 1, animals were given an ethanol solution (6.5%) or tap water to drink for 4 and 10 days, before the procedure for TMJ pain. In the group treated for 4 days, significant analgesia was observed in the TMJ formalin test, whereas the group treated for 10 days did not show this effect, revealing the development of tolerance to ethanol antinociceptive effects. In experiment 2, animals were submitted to chronic regimen of ethanol (6.5% for 10 days) and the control group was given tap water to drink. After this period, morphine (lO mg/kg i.p.) was administrated 30 minutes before the TMJ formalin test. Morphine had the same analgesic effect in both groups, showing that the treatment with ethanol was not able to alter the analgesic potency of morphine. The results showed that ethanol can affect nociceptive behavioral responses related to pain from deep tissues, like the TMJ, and the absence of interaction between ethanol and morphine suggest that ethanol-induced analgesia was mediated by nonopiate mechanisms.

metadata.dc.description.abstractalternative: O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar o efeito do etanol e da morfina sobre as respostas comportamentais nociceptivas provocadas pelo teste da formalina na ATM de ratos (Teste da formalina na ATM). No experimento 1, os animais receberam uma solução de etanol 6,5 % ou água comum para beber durante 4 e 10 dias, antes da realização do teste da formalina na ATM. No grupo tratado por 4 dias, observou-se analgesia significativa ao teste da formalina, enquanto que no grupo tratado por 10 dias esse efeito não ocorreu, demonstrando o desenvolvimento de tolerância aos efeitos antinociceptivos do etanol. No experimento 2, os animais foram submetidos ao regime crônico de etanol (6,5% por 10 dias) e o grupo controle recebeu água comum para beber. Após esse período, foi administrado morfina (10 mg/kg i.p.) 30 minutos antes da realização do teste da formalina na ATM. A morfina teve o mesmo efeito analgésico nos 2 grupos, demonstrando que o tratamento com etanol não foi capaz de alterar a potência analgésica da morfina. Os resultados mostraram que o etanol é capaz de alterar as respostas nociceptivas relacionadas à dor proveniente de tecidos profundos, como a ATM, e a ausência de interação entre o etanol e a morfina indica que a analgesia induzida pelo etanol é mediada por mecanismos não-opióides
