Pain Mechanisms in OA: Basic and Clinical Research 
Increasing knowledge of pain mechanisms, mediators and pathways during recent years has led to the development of numerous new therapeutics, some of which are now in final stages of clinical development.  Nevertheless, there remain unanswered questions and conflicting data regarding the roles of the peripheral and central nervous system in the development and maintenance of OA pain.  This discussion session will focus on presenting studies that will address pain mechanisms, approaches to modulation of pain pathways and data from recent clinical studies.
