Cancer-Induced Bone Pain (CIBP) Model

Creative Bioarray has been at the forefront of delivering flexible and cost-effective disease model services for several years. Our team of dedicated scientists has successfully developed a stable cancer-induced bone pain (CIBP) model, which has become an invaluable asset to our clients seeking to expedite their analgesic drug development processes. By leveraging our expertise and state-of-the-art facilities, our clients can gain deeper insights into the mechanisms of bone cancer pain and identify potential therapeutic targets, thereby streamlining their journey from preclinical research to clinical trials.

CIBP is a distressing condition characterized by the intense discomfort that arises when cancer cells metastasize to the bones or originate within the bone itself. This form of pain is often described as persistent, with sudden and spontaneous flare-ups, frequently accompanied by heightened sensitivity to pain, a condition known as hyperalgesia. The underlying mechanisms of CIBP are multifaceted, involving a complex interplay of factors associated with neuropathic, traumatic, and inflammatory pain. To study CIBP and develop effective treatments, researchers utilize animal models that replicate the human experience of bone pain due to cancer. These models are designed to mimic the pathophysiological processes observed in cancer patients, allowing for the investigation of pain mechanisms and the testing of potential analgesic agents.
