Voltage Gated Sodium and Calcium Channel Blockers for the Treatment of Chronic Inflammatory Pain

Inflammation associated with chronic pain states is deleterious to health and often debilitating for the patient. It has been hypothesized that pain of inflammatory origin may evolve into a condition that resembles neuropathic pain. This review by researchers from the Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology, University College London considers the therapeutic potential for sodium and calcium channel blockers for the treatment of chronic inflammatory pain states.  READ MORE
