Target Identification Strategies in the Genomic Era
William R. Lariviere, PhD
Although the subjective nature of pain complicates reproducing and analyzing experiment pain in animal models, preclinical pain research has led to significant progress in clinical pain management.
Translational Pain Research: Achievements and Challenges
Jianren Mao, MD, PhD
Over the last few decades, significant achievements in pain research have led to improvements in clinical pain management.
Animal Models in Pain Research
Jeffrey S. Mogil, PhD
Elucidation of the underpinnings of pain regulation in laboratory animals provides a powerful avenue for research into comparable mechanisms in humans.
Sodium Channel Expression in Keratinocytes: Implications for Neuropathic Pain
Frank L. Rice, PhD
Sodium channels are primary determinants of membrane excitability. Interestingly, recent evidence suggests that keratinocytes in the skin express voltage-gated sodium channels, with increased levels observed in such neuropathic pain conditions as complex regional pain syndrome type 1.
