Peripheral Receptor Targets for Analgesia

Novel Approaches to Pain Management

Edited by

Brian E. Cairns

A unique reference on peripheral pain receptor mechanisms

While considerable advances have been made on pharmacotherapies for many chronic disease states, options available to treat chronic pain have remained relatively unchanged for decades. However, utilizing the receptors involved in peripheral pain transduction mechanisms offers a significant opportunity to create novel therapies for pain.

A comprehensive review of peripheral pain mechanisms, Peripheral Receptor Targets for Analgesia: Novel Approaches to Pain Management provides a unique resource that brings together a body of knowledge that was previously widely dispersed. As such, it gives readers a framework for further basic and clinical studies on potential receptor targets, as well as the development of improved topical analgesics.

Coverage includes:

  • The latest discoveries by leading researchers relating to the function of various ion channels and receptors in the peripheral nervous system

  • Novel delivery techniques

  • An appendix listing currently available topical analgesic medications

  • A Foreword by Professor Lars Arendt-Nielsen of the Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction (SMI) at Aalborg University


An unmatched resource for improving drug therapies and making pain management more efficient, Peripheral Receptor Targets for Analgesia supplies pharmaceutical scientists, pharmacologists, neuroscientists, and graduate and upper-level undergraduate students with a comprehensive, up-to-date reference.
