  • 慢性疼痛若無有效紓解,將會嚴重影響個人生活品質及社會醫療成本。全球約有15億人口受慢性疼痛所苦,其中3-4.5%為神經病變痛。 最大止痛藥 市場仍為美國,但亞太市場近年來快速成長。新止痛藥發展的方向主要為關節炎、癌症及神經病變痛,然目前治療藥物侷限於副作用大或療效短 (30-40% 神經病變痛病人對單ㄧ治療有50%止痛療效)。因之,瞭解慢性疼痛的分子機制且找到止痛藥標的基因,有助於新止痛藥的發展。 本實驗室的研究主要著重於:

    • 探討慢性疼痛的分子機制 : 以臨床疾病 (e.g. 類風濕關節炎、神經病變痛)及小鼠模式 (e.g. knockout, knockdown) 佐以動物行為測試及細胞分子、生理與藥理、單細胞鈣離子影像分析探討慢性疼痛的分子機制 。
    • 搜尋具潛力的止痛藥物標的基因:探討臨床治療上極佳藥物標的物-G蛋白偶合受體 (e.g. 酸敏性 、 血清素 G 蛋白偶合受體) 參與急性轉換成慢性疼痛及鏡像疼痛的作用機制,藉以搜尋具潛力的止痛藥物標的基因。
    • 止痛藥開發:利用細胞訊息與動物藥理測試進行藥物篩選,開發有效且具選擇性的止痛藥或治療方法,緩解持續性疼痛。
