The pig peripheral neuritis trauma (PNT) model is an important transitional model that bridges the gap between animal research and the clinic. While we discussed how the the pig PNT model shares many morphological and molecular pathology similarities with skin biopsies from human pain conditions in our poster pdf, our chief scientist was the last, principle author in a preceding publication entitled “Peripheral Neuritis Trauma In Pigs: A Neuropathic Pain Model” in the Journal of Pain. In this paper, authors examine this model in terms of how it relates to the human pain response.
