Product description

From the Back Cover

Pain, in small doses, is a valuable survival tool that alerts us to injury, illness, and danger. Chronic pain, as experienced in headache, fibromyalgia, and various other long-lasting disorders, negatively impacts life for a significant percentage of the population. Pain Genetics: Basic to Translational Science explores both the art and the science that is being applied to the study of genetic determinants of pain. The innovative research in this field has allowed for a more profound understanding of pain mechanisms and improving established treatment options.

Pain Genetics: Basic to Translational Science describes the current state of pain genetic research. The opening chapters look at fundamental information on basic genetic mechanisms underlying pain perception. Coverage then progresses to look at pain phenotypes and related conditions. The final chapters look to translate our understanding of the genetic underpinning of pain to novel therapeutic approaches and point the direction forward for research in the field.

Bringing together the creative and cutting-edge alongside important foundational principles, Pain Genetics: Basic to Translational Science will be an important resource for researchers, clinicians, and advanced students of genetics.

  • Fully explores the latest advances of pain genetics
  • Presents the art and science being applied by leading researchers in the field
  • Discusses the identification of important pain phenotypes
  • Translates basic findings into innovative therapeutic approaches
