Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Neuropathic pain is generally defined as pain resulting from nerve damage or dysfunction of the somatosensory system and can present in the form of hyperalgesia, allodynia, and paroxysmal or spontaneous pain, which are ordinarily intractable. The obvious pathophysiology of neuropathic pain has not yet been fully understood, but various studies have proposed several consistent pathophysiological mechanisms that are related to neurogenic inflammatory responses and central sensitization. Therefore, multimodal analgesia is the currently recommended strategy for neuropathic pain management. However, due to the diversity of mechanisms, neuropathic pain is sometimes difficult to treat. In order to treat neuropathic pain, pharmacotherapy is still challenging and plays a key role.

We are pleased to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue, titled “Research on Pharmacotherapy for Neuropathic Pain”. This Special Issue aims to introduce and highlight all pharmacological treatments for neuropathic pain including biopharmaceutics, biomedical sciences, cell biology, interdisciplinary research, study of alternative targets or novel therapeutic strategies, new pharmaceutical formulations and drug delivery systems as well as drug repositioning approaches, etc., through animal and clinical study.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Dr. Hue Jung Park
Guest Editor
