“Nanotechnology: A Promising New Paradigm for the Control of Pain” is a new article – available at Pain Medicine, published by Oxford University Press.

Written by Krishnan V. Chakravarthy (MD, PhD), Frank J. Boehm and Paul J. Christo (MD, MBA) the objective of the article is to critically review both preclinical and clinical studies that focus on the use of nanotechnology for both acute and chronic pain management, surveying both diagnostic and therapeutic applications.

The article also provides information on nanotechnology for pain practitioners, so that they may better understand how this technology works and how it may be applied to their day-to-day clinical practice.
