#ALT# Using Human iPSC Derived Sensory Neurons in Pain Research for Allergy

Pain and irritation from allergens coming in contact with the skin can be simulated in pain models with human iPSC derived sensory neurons as a frontline method. Globally millions of individuals suffer from chronic pain that has a negative impact on their quality of life. It is important that scientists develop a better understanding of the mechanisms underpinning the pain response in human sensory neurons.

The latter group is the largest: around 800 million people worldwide suffer from some form of allergy to pollen, with the usual symptoms such as a runny nose, cough and severe breathing problems.
