Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) is one of most important chemical mediators. The studies cover structural, molecular, cellular, biological, and pathophysiological research fields. Among the pathophysiological or neurobiological fields, chronic pain raises concerns among many basic and clinical researchers. The Special Issue in the journal Cells (IF=7.66) calls for original and review articles on LPA and chronic pain (as well as acute/inflammatory pain) to elucidate LPA neurobiology and pathophysiological involvement in refractory pain.
