The primary focus of my research program is to elucidate the nociceptive pathways modulated by circulating and local hormones in nervous tissue. While a central site of this modulation has been widely accepted, I have continued to investigate how they act on primary nociceptors and modulate the response to pro- and anti-nociceptive signals, depending upon the nature of the signals interacting at the level of sensory neurons. Nociceptive systems are implicated in the etiology of functional disorders such as non- cardiac chest pain, interstitial cystitis, fibromyalgia, acute or chronic abdominal pain associated with functional bowel disorders, chronic pelvic pain and others. Our studies may provide important information about the actions of hormones on primary sensory neurons for a better understanding the clinical presentation of functional pain-associated disorders.
