65 Scopus citations


In summary, recent findings point out that ROS are an important factor in persistent pain. The paper by Wang et al. (15) supports this contention. There are a few other examples that illustrate the importance of ROS and many more extensive studies are expected to follow. In the near future, the effort expended on the study of ROS in mechanisms of pain generation should be fruitful in terms of both advancement of scientific knowledge and drug development.
