Pain Models: Translational Relevance and Applications

Title:

Pain Models: Translational Relevance and Applications

Author(s):

Handwerker, Hermann O.; Arendt-Nielsen, Lars

The neurobiology and mechanisms discovered in animals often do not translate to patients with a chronic pain condition. To help researchers and clinicians develop and use models that can help translate data from animals into humans, this book presents:
 
  • experimental animal models, with a focus on how they may translate into humans
  • human experimental pain models, including details about pain induction and assessment
  • human surrogate pain models
  • clinical applications of pain models
  • models that may link mechanisms of pain and pruritus
Pain Models contains 29 chapters by internationally recognized experts. It is a comprehensive survey of pain models at different levels, and commentaries by clinicians directly address clinical perspectives.
