Immunopharmacology Comments
Mouse studies using models of colonic hypersensitivity suggest some potential for gabapentin as a treatment for chronic abdominal pain and moderate intestinal inflammation [8]. Topically administered gabapentin is also reported to ameliorate ocular inflammation in vitro and in vivo (in rabbit studies) [1].
