Stanford University received funding from the National Institutes of Health to develop and validate objective biomarkers for chronic pain. This study aims to develop biomarkers to predict the disease trajectory for individuals with musculoskeletal high-impact chronic pain. These biomarker signatures will integrate central nervous system (CNS), multi-omic, sensory, functional, psychosocial, and demographic domains into detection algorithms. Biomarker signatures from the proposed research are intended to facilitate risk and treatment stratification for clinical trial design and to facilitate treatment decisions in clinical practice for patients with musculoskeletal chronic pain.
