About this Research Topic
This issue will discuss Pain in Rheumatic Diseases an autoimmune and inflammatory disease that affect joints tendons, ligaments, bones, and muscles. Among them are many types of arthritis, a term used for a condition that affect joints. Common symptoms include Joint pain, Loss of motion in a joint or joints and Inflammation.
The topics discussed in this issue include but are not limited to: Basic mechanisms of pain in Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), osteoarthritis (OA) and fibromyalgia. Using pre-clinical and clinical models to understand physiopathological aspects and development of disease, molecules involved with pain/inflammation modulation. Sex differences in models of pain.
The goal of this Research Topic is to bring together a collection of review and researcher papers that collectively will contribute for a better understanding of pain in rheumatic diseases. In so doing, these insights can be a source used not only to understand the disease but also a font of new molecules involved with the development of and how modulating these molecules can contribute to better treat pain in rheumatic disease.
We welcome the submission of manuscripts including, but not limited to, the following topics: Special focus will be given (but is not restricted) to:
• Animal models of pain processing and development of rheumatic diseases and their pharmacological characterization using clinically available analgesic agents
- Rheumatoid Arthritis, osteoarthritis, and fibromyalgia due on its higher incidence among the arthritic diseases.
- • Pathobiological insights generated by pre-clinical models
• New mechanisms related to inflammation and neuronal sensitization during rheumatic diseases development.
Keywords: Analgesic Agents, Animal Models, Rheumatic Disease
