Abstract

The paper addresses issues related to the clinical relevance of currently employed animal models of neuropathic pain and our inability to translate clinical symptoms and signs into pathophysiological mechanisms. A mechanism-based classification of pain is therefore currently not feasible. Suggestions on how to facilitate progress within this area are put forward.
