German Research Network on Neuropathic Pain (DFNS e.V.)

About

The main concept of the German Research Network on Neuropathic Pain (DFNS) focuses on the idea of a mechanism-based and symptom-oriented approach of neuropathic pain. In order to derive a more rational treatment of neuropathic pain, the DFNS proposes the following strategy:
•to establish a data base of patients including psychological and quantitative sensory evaluation;
•to define pathophysiological mechanisms of pain and associated symptoms as well as the development of chronic neuropathic pain;
•to introduce new and to evaluate available interventions to prevent and treat neuropathic pain on the basis of a mechanism-based and symptom-oriented approach.
