Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pain is a major complaint for many people. It affects all age groups, including children and the elderly. Pain is a complex condition, and it impacts patients’ daily lives. While pain is a manifestation of different disease conditions, it can be the major problem and complaint for a patient more than the causative condition. Understanding the assessment of pain, mechanisms, and clinical therapies is extremely important to be able to provide the appropriate care for our patients.

Our Special Issue will focus on understanding all aspects of pain, from the mechanism of action to different treatment options. We aim at making it a comprehensive resource for readers. Readers should be able to gain in-depth knowledge about each topic they read.

We would like to invite authors from all over the world to submit their cutting-edge research involving basic, ethical, and clinical research.

Dr. Alaa Abd-Elsayed
Guest Editor
