Inflammatory Pain Pathways in Endometriosis

Dr Kelsi Dodds

The pivotal study led by Dr Kelsi Dodds and team explores how specific brain cells contribute to long-lasting, deep-seated pain and why this type of pain is more common in women. The study suggests that certain interactions in the nervous system play a key role in this pain. By looking at these interactions in conditions common in women, we may better understand why women are more susceptible to chronic pain. The study also proposes that a particular type of inflammation in the spinal cord might increase the risk of chronic pain in women.
