Abstract Title : Pain: an opioid epidemic requiring a non-opioid alternative


Precision Medicine (PMED) once synonymous with cancer treatment now has potential in a vaster field including infectious diseases, mental health, and age-related illnesses. Whilst PMED holds such vast promise, current day “pitfalls” include high patient costs, high potential for over diagnosis, data sensitivities (legal, ethical) and time as evidence to support PMED use is still developing, as well as addressing disease co-morbidities that can significantly influence patient health outcomes and/or ongoing compliance. For PMED to realise its potential in human healthcare, equal consideration for addressing disease comorbidities, such as pain must be addressed. Pain today continues to represent a significant problem in both physician and patient centres. Current opioid use has had a long effective analgesic history but within the last decade, concerns have been raised over heightened abuse and toxicity profile suggesting a strong need for effective non-opioid analgesic alternatives.
