Moving Towards Translational Pain Models
21 Nov 2013

The translational gap between measurements of pain in humans versus animals has received recent attention due to a very high rate of failure in clinical trials by many ‘promising’ molecules. While pain in clinic is mostly assessed using a verbal numerical rating scale, preclinical pain models have focused predominantly on ‘reflexive’ measures such as withdrawal responses upon thermal or mechanical stimulation. This webinar will explore recent advances in clinically relevant pain models and pain assessment techniques.
