This Special Issue will focus on new perspectives and advances in translational pain research to identify novel targets, drug candidates, protocols, pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to treat pain. Submit your manuscript by August 1, 2024.
Pain is one of the most fundamental sensations necessary for survival. Pain teaches individuals to avoid harm, to control their body, to allow for healing of injuries and to better anticipate their environment to prevent additional trauma. However, pain can become chronic, and still, in the modern world, pain management is needed.
This Virtual Special Issue from ACS Pharmacology and Translational Science focuses on new perspectives and advances in translational pain research to identify novel targets, drug candidates, protocols, pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to treat pain. . Innovative strategies aiming at treating different modalities of pain signaling will be discussed. To answer the rapidly evolving field of pain therapeutics, ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science welcomes contributions with emphasis on translational potential, de-risking of common side effects of painkillers and specificity for pathological pain mechanisms.
This Virtual Special Issue has a broad scope inviting various types of manuscripts (e.g. Research Articles, Viewpoints, Perspectives, and Review Articles) related to pain pharmacology including the development of novel drugs.
To learn more about the scope and requirements for this Virtual Special Issue, read the accompanying Editorial.
