The effects of interleukin-1 beta on the mechanical nociceptive threshold in rat were examined using the paw-pressure test. An intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) injection of interleukin-1 beta at doses of 10 and 100 pg/rat caused hyperalgesia to mechanical stimuli. Higher doses of interleukin-1 beta (1 and 10 ng/rat) induced an analgesic effect. The coadministration of the interleukin-1 receptor antagonist completely antagonized the hyperalgesic and analgesic effects of interleukin-1 beta. An i.c.v. injection of alpha-helical-corticotropin-releasing factor [9-41] 15 min prior to interleukin-1 beta administration completely blocked the hyperalgesic and analgesic effects of interleukin-1 beta. An i.c.v. injection of sodium salicylate 15 min prior to interleukin-1 beta administration inhibited the hyperalgesic effect of interleukin-1 beta, but not the analgesic effect. These results suggest that interleukin-1 beta produces biphasic effects on the mechanical nociceptive threshold through the interleukin-1 receptor in the brain and that a corticotropin-releasing factor-mediated pathway is involved. Furthermore, the hyperalgesic effect of interleukin-1 beta may be mediated by prostaglandins.
