Pain Therapeutics Conference

Discover cutting-edge research and novel therapeutics in the pipeline

London, United Kingdom

We are delighted to announce its 20th Annual Pain Therapeutics conference held in London on the 11th and 12th May 2020.

The Global Pain Therapeutics Market was valued at $11.26 Million in 2018 and is projected to reach $15.87 Million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 4.40 % from 2019 to 2026. Improving pain management continues to be a priory as pain-derived disabilities such as osteoarthritis, back pain, migraines and cancer are leading cause of disability worldwide. Yet, pain treatment remains the biggest clinical burden of the age as a result of lack of efficacy, increasing side effects and the opioid crisis that is now entering Europe following its epidemic in the USA.

The 20th Annual Conference will overview the current state of pain treatment highlighting clinical success to date as well as evaluating the potential of drug candidates in the pipelines.

Join Europe's leading Pain Therapeutics Conference which will explore the cutting-edge research of novel therapeutics in the pipeline of leading pharmaceutical companies and research institutions. Discuss solutions for the challenges of understanding pain as a heterogenous disease and the diverse treatment approaches it requires.
