Medical conference: Central mechanisms driving OA-induced chronic pain @ Auditorium, local 2458 Hôpital et centre d’hébergement D’Youville

Central mechanisms driving OA-induced chronic pain

May 2, 2018, 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Auditorium, local 2458,
Hôpital et centre d’hébergement D’Youville, 1036 Belvedere sud, Sherbrooke

Osteoarthritis (OA), including post-traumatic OA (PTOA), is the most common disability in Canada, causing chronic pain in millions of Canadians. Despite this, current pain management strategies for this disease are largely ineffective. Although mechanisms underlying joint pathology in OA are becoming better understood, whether there are upstream or central mechanisms that could potentially contribute to pain, especially in PTOA, remains unclear.

The objective of this study was to assess allodynia in a model of PTOA (Anterior Cruciate Ligament transection) as well as in three control groups, including Sham surgery (n=7), Uninjured mice (n=4), and a model of neuropathic pain where allodynia is already well described (Spared Nerve Injury (SNI, n=8).
