Applied Data Research Release: Innovative Devices Allow Patients Greater Control Over Pain Management

Published: Feb 04, 2008

(Nashua, NH) – An increasing understanding of the physiology of pain coupled with patient-friendly dosage forms and delivery techniques are providing caregivers and prescribers with improved tools for helping patients manage their own pain. New and emerging pain delivery products that allow patients to play an active role in the timing and dosing of their pain medication allow patients to balance pain relief and medication side effects, and potentially improve quality-of-life. Several factors are converging to make pain management an attractive segment for market participants. Current pain management philosophy is based on the premise of treating pain early and aggressively. This is based on research that pain is tightly correlated with decreased quality of life, and increased incidence of anxiety and depression. It’s now believed that chronic pain causes the physiologic release of enzymes that can damage healthy tissue.

The aging population – particularly in North America and Western Europe, where the quality of medical care is high and consumers enjoy a relatively high standard of living – will create a growing market of mature and elderly needing drug therapies and pain management for a variety of maladies associated with the aging process. These factors are attracting well-financed players and elevating alliance activity in this sector. These developments are examined in a new and comprehensive report – Patient Controlled Pain Management: Drugs, Devices and Development Strategies. The report has been carefully researched and written to provide timely and insightful analysis of key factors and developments shaping the prescription pain management sector.
