Peripheral Nerve Injury (PNI) Models of Neuropathic Pain
Neuropathic pain may arise from many different disease states and present dwith a variety of symptoms, including shooting or burning pain, tingling, numbness, and allodynia (pain in response to a normally innocuous stimulus). Clinically significant relief is often difficult to achieve, in part because conventional opioid therapy is typically less effective for neuropathic pain. Also, patients vary widely in their response to other types of analgesics. Understanding the mechanisms underlying neuropathic pain syndromes is crucial to the development of more effective therapies.
MD Biosciences offers several well- established peripheral nerve injury models of neuropathic pain:
"The performance of your team far exceeded our expectations. Your input during study design, responsiveness during the study and interpretation of results was critical to next step decisions. That's something we don't see with every CRO."
