Kurzbeschreibung

A unique reference on peripheral pain receptor mechanisms
While considerable advances have been made on pharmacotherapiesfor many chronic disease states, options available to treat chronicpain have remained relatively unchanged for decades. However,utilizing the receptors involved in peripheral pain transductionmechanisms offers a significant opportunity to create noveltherapies for pain.
A comprehensive review of peripheral pain mechanisms,Peripheral Receptor Targets for Analgesia: Novel Approaches toPain Management provides a unique resource that brings togethera body of knowledge that was previously widely dispersed. As such,it gives readers a framework for further basic and clinical studieson potential receptor targets, as well as the development ofimproved topical analgesics.
Coverage includes:
* The latest discoveries by leading researchers relating to thefunction of various ion channels and receptors in the peripheralnervous system
* Novel delivery techniques
* An appendix listing currently available topical analgesicmedications
* A Foreword by Professor Lars Arendt-Nielsen of the Center forSensory-Motor Interaction (SMI) at Aalborg University
An unmatched resource for improving drug therapies and makingpain management more efficient, Peripheral Receptor Targets forAnalgesia supplies pharmaceutical scientists, pharmacologists,neuroscientists, and graduate and upper-level undergraduatestudents with a comprehensive, up-to-date reference.
