LONDON, March 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Aimed at capturing the latest clinical developments in pain management, SMi Group's timely Pain Therapeutics summit will gather an audience of scientific pioneers and industry experts when it takes place on 22nd and 23rd May in Central London, UK.
With still around 9 weeks to go, SMi Group are delighted to release a preliminary list of attendees featuring the industry's most senior experts and KOLs in pain management. Already 75% full, Pain Therapeutics 2017 has become one of SMi's most sought after events emphasising a widespread common goal in addressing opioid dependency and understanding human pain phenotypes.
Dr Randall Stevens, Chief Medical Officer from Centrexion Therapeutics and a keynote speaker at Pain Therapeutics 2017 said:
"We can limit opioid use, and we can treat the dependence/addiction, but we have not yet addressed the underlying problem – better non-addictive therapies to control a variety of painful conditions. Until we bring a number of better therapies to the market, there remains a limitation in the arsenal of analgesics to treat people with pain."
Nations attending will include Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom and USA.
