Gallic acid (GA) is one of the natural flavonoids and it is known to protect the neuronal system from various endogenous neurodegenerative processes. The present study is focused on evaluating the role of GA in chronic construction injury (CCI) of sciatic nerve-induced neuropathic pain. The test compound i.e., gallic acid (20 and 40mg/kg), and reference compound i.e., pregabalin (PrG: 5mg/kg) were administered intravenously for 10 consecutive days. The sciatic nerve injury-induced neuralgic sensations were assessed with multiple test methods like acetone drop, pinprick, plantar, tail-flick, and tail pinch tests at different time points i.e., 0, 4th, 8th, 12th, and 16th days. The biochemical level changes i.e., thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS), reduced glutathione (GSH), superoxide anion, calcium, myeloperoxidase (MPO), and tumor necrosis factor–a (TNF-a) were estimated in sciatic nerve samples. The administration of GA and PreG was shown a significant ameliorative effect against the CCI-induced pain response in a dose-dependent manner. Moreover, it also attenuated the tissue biochemical changes. The observed effects of GA were similar to reference drug PreG treated groups. Hence, GA has neuroprotective and pain relief effects against the CCI-induced neuralgia. It may be due to its natural free radical scavenging; regulation of inflammatory proteins; expression of antioxidant proteins, reduction of intracellular free calcium, and prevention of neuroinflammatory actions.
