Our capabilities are wide ranging and include the use of translational technology, such as UV radiation to induce localised inflammation and laser doppler to measure blood flow; plasma/tissue sample collection to establish PK/PD relationships and measure inflammatory biomarkers, and transcriptomic analysis to determine mechanistic aspects of disease progression and predict responders / non-responders to NCE analgesics.

Examples of the models we offer extend to the following:

  • CCI (Bennett) model of neuropathic pain
  • STZ-induced diabetic neuropathy
  • Chemotherapy-induced neuropathy, (Oxaliplatin)
  • CFA / carrageenan / capsaicin / formalin inflammatory pain
  • MIA / CFA osteoarthritis joint pain
  • Acute mechanistic pain models, e.g. NGF
  • Ultraviolet light (UV) burn
