Chronic Pain in Dogs and Cats Workshop - Hosted by National Institutes of Health (NIH) on Nov. 29-30, 2017

 

 

“We want to reach a large audience in hopes of promoting research and analgesic development for companion animals with translational benefit to humans.”

 

 

Please consider attending the upcoming Chronic Pain in Dogs and Cats Workshop that will be hosted by NIH on Nov. 29-30, 2017. There is no registration cost but everyone does need to register at the website. We want to reach a large audience in hopes of promoting research and analgesic development for companion animals with translational benefit to humans.

 

Despite advances, chronic pain is one of the most poorly understood and under treated medical problems facing veterinary medicine today. One of the most frustrating aspects of developing therapeutics for treating chronic pain in veterinary medicine is the lack of validated methods to measure chronic pain in different species and diseases. Similarlytranslational success has often been lacking when taking analgesics from animal models to human clinical trials. Numerous reviews have highlighted a lack of translation of basic research into new approved therapeutics for treating persistent pain in humans. The use of spontaneous painful disease in companion animals is one of the changes that could help improve translation of basic science to new therapeutics to act as a bridge between preclinical and clinical studies. The ultimate goal is to reduce failure rates in human clinical trials with resultant new therapeutics for humans and animals. For this bridge to work, we need valid outcome measures in animal spontaneous disease conditions and opportunities to share and promote knowledge.

 

We are hoping this NIH workshop will bring research, regulatory, academia, and industry together from the veterinary and human arena to tackle these challenges. 

 

Please see the brochure http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/publications/Pain%20in%20Animals%20Workshop.pdf and the www.PAW2017.com website.  Please help us spread the word by sharing the brochure and website with your colleagues.  Thank you very much!

Dr. Ellen Carlin on Remember the Animals! One Health and the National Biodefense Strategy

One of her key projects there is to co-direct the Blue Ribbon Study Panel on Biodefense, a policy reform effort, and she also supports the organization's global health and biosurveillance work.
