Circulating markers of central sensitization in knee osteoarthritis: combining metabolomic profiling with imaging and quantitative sensory testing


Funded by Pfizer and Eli Lilly Global Awards for Advancing Chronic Pain Research (ADVANCE) 2018

PrincipalĀ Investigator: Prof Ana Valdes

Co-Investigator: Dr Joanne Stocks

The aim of this study is to identify circulating biomarkers of central sensitization in knee OA to characterize the molecular mechanisms linked to peripheral and central pain in knee osteoarthritis and their links to structural features in the joint
