Dear Dr. Grover,
Thank you very much for your interest in our paper. I have no evidence that intraperitoneal injection of LPS will induce pain, although this possibility cannot be excluded at this moment. Pain may play a role in specific peripheral inflammatory models such as subcutaneous turpentine administration. Maybe Steve Maier and Linda Watkins can comment on this issue in more detail.
