Look at ways in which companies can develop pain drugs & treatments at SMi’s Pain Therapeutics 2012

Pain Therapeutics 2012

Join SMi at the 12th annual Pain Therapeutics conference, which will be held on 21st & 22nd May 2012 in London, UK.

Pain is an incredibly hot topic as it affects all illnesses and all people, in many different ways. This makes it an incredibly lucrative business and one that has not yet been explored in the pharmaceutical industry to its full potential. Pain is also the most common reason patients seek medical care, as it affects the quality of life many people experience and has significant sensory and emotional components. Whilst advances have been made in pain management, few significant ones have occurred, making it harder in recent years to get analgesics to market.

In the current economic climate, this makes it even more imperative for companies to improve their R&D methods so that drugs being put forward for clinical trials have the best chance of success.
