Chair: Tonia Vincent (Oxford, UK)

Informal forum to discuss important advances in OA pain research. Discussion centered around select submitted abstracts. Specifically:

  • Updates on NGF – where do we go from here?
    • New horizons in targeted therapies (J Hendriks #588)
    • Neuronal plasticity and NGF in rat OA (Aso #568)
    • Neuroplasticity in murine OA (Obeidat #354)
  • Improving pain outcomes in clinical studies (trials and cohorts)
    • Lorecivivint post hoc analysis – getting the most out of clinical trial data (Markman #649)
    • Harmonising pain outcomes (PASS) across multiple cohorts in STEpUP OA (Perry).
  • Prediction of pain trajectories in patients
    • Pain trajectories in knee OA (J Collins #279)
    • Pain trajectories in hand OA (van der Meulen #331)

Suggested format – each topic 30 minutes, starting with 3 minute ‘poster’ presentations (suggest single slide or electronic poster) from each poster presenter followed by discussion.

Abstracts are largely chosen from those that are not already selected for oral presentations at the main meeting. Note some presenters will need to leave early to go to the 7:30 am session.

Breakfast will be provided!
