About the Bunionectomy Pain Model

Bunionectomy surgery has been used as a model of postoperative pain to support analgesic drug development decisions for several years. The pain consistency and intensity following this ambulatory surgical procedure has been proven adequate to predict analgesic activity (onset and duration) in a relatively small number of subjects. This model has also been able to detect analgesic activity of compounds with diverse pharmacokinetic profiles and mechanisms of action. WCCT Global is proud to announce that it can now provide this additional service to its Pharma development partners.
