It examines the effect of neonatal painful colon distension, applied with varying onset time, duration and frequency, on the rate of growth, digestive outcomes (food and water consumption, fecal and urinary output), spontaneous exploratory behavior and visceral and somatic sensitivity of adult rats. Preliminary results were previously reported in abstract form [25]. Methods Animals Experiments were done using male Sprague-Dawley rats obtained as pre-weanling neonates (younger than 6 days) from Harlan Sprague-Dawley Inc.

Few studies have suggested an association between a history of physical abuse and functional gastrointestinal disorders [11], particularly irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) [12-14]. On the other hand, a number of studies have suggested that sometimes well-intended but painful medical procedures on neonates, without or with inadequate anesthesia, can have negative long-term implications and can engender unwanted consequences [15,16]. In a cohort matched case-control study, using siblings as controls, noxious stimulation caused by gastric suction at birth was associated with an increased prevalence of functional intestinal disorders in later life, possibly linked to the development of long-term visceral hypersensitivity and cognitive hypervigilance [17].
