QSPainRelief - €6 million EU-funded research project on better treatment of chronic pain kicks off

10 European institutions collaborate for the next 5 years to help patients suffering from chronic pain with novel combinational treatments
 
MUNICH - Feb. 21, 2020 - PRLog -- Chronic pain severely reduces the patients' quality of life, their ability to work, and their socio-economic contribution in society. 20% of Europeans suffer from chronic pain, and up to 60% of these patients don't receive effective treatment. It is crucial to help affected individuals.

In the 5-year-long EU-funded QSPainRelief project, world-leading experts on chronic pain, pharmacology, pharmacogenomics, personalized medicine, systems biology, and in silico modeling join forces to develop novel, personalized, and effective combinational treatments of existing medications.

The overarching goal is to identify alternative combinational treatment paradigms, with improved analgesia (pain relief) and reduced adverse effects via a mechanism-based Quantitative Systems Pharmacology (QSP) approach, using algorithms and advanced in silico technologies, and then validate the most promising combinational medication paradigms in preclinical models, in healthy volunteers, and in clinical practice.
