New Advances and Opportunities in Managing Pain: Translational Animal Models, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) June 12, 2013

Animal models provide pivotal systems for the preclinical study of pain. Recently, there has been increased attention and discussion focused on the lack of translation of potential pain therapeutics from preclinical models to clinical settings. Measures of pain within these models have typically relied on evoked withdrawal responses to noxious stimuli (hyperalgesia) or normally non-noxious stimuli (allodynia). There have been new efforts in enhancing translation of preclinical findings to the clinical chronic pain condition. Additionally, novel measures of pain behaviors are being developed within animal pain models to better address the multidimensional aspect of pain.

This webinar reviews the challenges and current opportunities in pain research focusing on chronic pain. Chronic pain patients, especially those with neuropathic pain and cancer pain, are often not adequately treated by analgesics now on the market. Additionally, the adverse side effect profiles of the most commonly used medications, such as opiates, can further diminish quality of life in these patients. These issues emphasize the need for development of new, mechanism based therapeutics.

This event features experts with experience working with preclinical models of chronic pain including nerve injury, chemotherapy, bone cancer, and osteoarthritis. An overview of recent advances in preclinical measures of pain will be presented, including new assays of spontaneous or ongoing pain that is not evoked by stimuli applied by the experimenter.

Join us for a comprehensive presentation and interactive Q&A session!
