Fluoroacetate has been widely used to inhibit glia metabolism in vivo. It has yet
to be shown what the effects of chronic intrathecal infusion of fluoroacetate on
nociceptive behavioral testing are. The effects of chronic infusion of
fluoroacetate (5 nmoles/h) for 2 weeks were examined in normal rats. Chronic
intrathecal fluoroacetate did not alter mechanical threshold (von Frey
filaments), responses to supra-threshold mechanical stimuli (von Frey filaments),
responses to hot (hot plate) or cool (acetone test) stimuli and did not affect
motor performance of the animals, which was tested with rotarod. This suggests
that fluoroacetate at appropriate dose did not suppress neuronal activity in the
