Analgesics of the Future

The Outer Limits

Medicine and science builds and grows on the foundations of those who came before. Although pain management discoveries have been at a relative snail’s pace, there have been recent advances in existing medications and analgesic devices, as well as exciting new molecules and formulations on the horizon. With progressive changes in technology come advances in medicine. Inasmuch, this lecture will discuss newer formulations of older molecules (NSAIDs, local anesthetics, opioids, gabapentinoids), touch on developments in the abuse deterrent opioid space, and introduce some exciting animal based, preclinical, and early phase molecules in development. Come hear a discussion of the future of analgesics including topics such as NMDA, TRK-A, NOS, beta-arrestin, ORL-1, kappa, GABA, liposomes, and more! (Recorded at PAINWeek 2018)
