Special Issue Information
Pain is a complex phenomenon based on the sensitization of the peripheral and central nervous systems, together with the release of many biochemical pain modulators, and although pain management techniques have improved a lot in recent years, pain still has a substantial influence on patients' quality of life. It is widely known that current pain treatments are burdened with limited effectiveness and numerous adverse effects induced by pharmacotherapy. Therefore, many researchers are seeking novel pain management opportunities to improve pain relief efficiency with the simultaneous reduction in opioid administration, limitation of peripheral and central sensitization, and the prevention of chronic pain development.
The goal of this Special Issue is to highlight and publicize excellent pain research extending the knowledge of pain pathophysiology and leading to the development of more efficient and safe pain treatments. We encourage the submission of original research and review articles or short communications on topics including (but not limited to) the following:
- The characterization of current pain management concepts, including pharmacological and nonpharmacological treatments;
- The neurobiology of various pain types (neuropathic pain, postoperative pain, nociplastic pain, etc.);
- Preclinical pain studies;
- Translational studies.
