  1. 1. Neuroinflammation and pain

    Författare :Linda Block; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neuroinflammation; Pain; Persistant pain; Astrocytes; Morphine; Naloxone; Intrathecal administration;

    Sammanfattning : ABSTRACT Background: Persistent pain that remains long after the physiological trigger has been resolved is a disabling condition. A possible mechanism for the transition from acute physiological pain to persistent pain involves low-grade inflammation in the central nervous system, in which inflammatory-activated astrocytes play a significant role.

  2. 2. Chronic Pelvic Pain Persisting after Childbirth : Diagnosis and Implications for Treatment

    Författare :Thomas Torstensson; Per Kristiansson; Margaretha Eriksson; Siv Mørkved; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chronic pelvic pain; corticosteroid; injection; pain mapping; pelvic pain; physical function; physiotherapy; pregnancy; randomised controlled trial; referred pain; sensitisation; Physiotherapy; Sjukgymnastik fysioterapi;

    Sammanfattning : Objectives: To explore the pain mechanism and the origin of the pain and to evaluate a short-term pain relief treatment in women suffering from CPP persisting after childbirth in order to enable physiotherapeutic intervention.Material and methods: Thirty-six parous women with chronic pelvic pain persisting after childbirth were recruited at the Department of Physiotherapy, SundsvallHospital and by advertisements in newspapers and 29 parous women without chronic pelvic pain were recruited from an organized gynaecological screening at a midwifery surgery.

  3. 3. Biomarkers for Better Understanding of the Pathophysiology and Treatment of Chronic Pain : Investigations of Human Biofluids

    Sammanfattning : Chronic pain affects 20 % of the global population, causes suffering, is difficult to treat, and constitutes a large economic burden for society. So far, the characterization of molecular mechanisms of chronic pain-like behaviors in animal models has not translated into effective treatments. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Autonomic reactivity in muscle pain : clinical and experimental assessment

    Författare :Nebojsa Kalezic; Eugene Lyskov; Stein Knardahl; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; autonomic reactivity; stress; chronic pain; experimental pain; back; shoulder; neck; Physiology; Fysiologi; Physiology; Fysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : There are numerous indications of possible involvement of the autonomic nervous system in the genesis of chronic pain. The possibility exists that sympathetic activation is related to motor dysfunction and changes in sensory processing, which have otherwise been implicated in musculoskeletal disorders. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The pain profile in fibromyalgia : Painomic studies of pain characteristics and proteins in blood

    Författare :Karin Wåhlén; Bijar Ghafouri; Björn Gerdle; Mika Gustafsson; Manuela Schmidt; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Chronic widespread pain (CWP), including fibromyalgia (FM), is a complex pain condition, where little is known about the molecular mechanisms contributing to its pathophysiology. To date, there are no established biomarkers for CWP/FM. LÄS MER
