Last week, MD Biosciences presented a poster at the Society for Neurosciences 2015 Conference in Chicago. As strong advocates for the use of pig in translational neuropathic pain research, we introduced a new pig proximal peripheral neuritis trauma (PNT) model that shares many similarities in morphological and molecular pathologies with skin biopsies from human pain conditions. This is particularly true in comparisons with patients suffering from persistent area pain conditions such as postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) as well as other chronic pain conditions.

 The 9th Annual Congress of the European Pain Federation EFIC® was anything but painful as it concluded last week in Vienna with three days of riveting talks. The speakers consisted of expert pain practitioners, scientists, and policy makers who came together with the goal of “translating evidence into practice”.
