Oxytocin and Chronic Pain in Humans

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Oxytocin (OT) is a long known neuropeptide, and it's uses in clinical practice, mainly those
regarding obstetrics have been thoroughly studied. However, there's been an increasing
interest in identifying other roles OT plays in emotion, cognition, perception and higher
cognitive processing. OT is also believed o have a mayor role in the physiology and
physiopathology of pain. We have reviewed existent literature and current human studies
on the relationship between OT and chronic pain. The present work compiles a significant
number of research papers and may cast some light on a remarkably interesting and
promising matter.
