Research and Clinical Trials in Pain Relief

Standard analgesic practices in the treatment of central and peripheral neuropathic pain syndromes (including opioids, tricyclic antidepressants, anticonvulsants, NMDA receptor antagonists, and other ion channel antagonists) have thus far provided inadequate pain relief.

Our studies investigate pain relief in peripheral and central neuropathic pain states by examining how novel drugs effect different pain mechanisms. For example, recent basic and clinical research with new drugs opens the possibility for new treatments.
