Moreover, special consideration will be given to the roles that drug delivery and devices will play in the future management of pain.
Key themes of this conference will include: New drug discovery and targets in the area of pain management, Focus on clinical trials and regulatory issues facing developers of new pain medications, Specialty Pharma drug development activities in pain management, Licensing and investment issues revolving around the pain therapeutics market, Developments in the race to market abuse-resistant opioids, and Drug delivery technologies and their application to the field of pain management.
