The Neurobiology of Pain and Analgesia
Organizer(s): Clifford J. Woolf, Ardem Patapoutian and Simon Tate
Date: February 22 - 27, 2009
Location: Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza Hotel, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Sponsored by Abbott Laboratories and AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, L.P.
Summary of Meeting:
This symposium will highlight the substantial advances made in our understanding of the neurobiology and pathophysiology of pain and the enormous opportunities these present for identifying and exploiting new targets for therapy. Current therapy is largely empirical and is based on suppressing symptoms. The future offers treatment targeted at the specific neural mechanisms responsible. This requires understanding the mechanisms, being able to identify which mechanism operates in which patient, and having pharmacological tools to act on the molecular targets that drive these mechanisms. Furthermore, we need to identify which patient is at risk of developing pain and develop preventative disease-modifying treatments to abort the establishment of pain. This symposium will address how these goals can be achieved by the combined effort of academics and industry.
