Potential novel biomarkers found for fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis related pain

A significant article resulting from the GLORIA project was published recently in Journal of Proteomics. The study conducted by several GLORIA groups at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden, and led by Jon Lampa found several potential pain related biomarkers by analyzing the cerebrospinal fluid of patients suffering from fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis. Their findings could be important for understanding the mechanism of chronic pain as well as for diagnostic purposes in patients. The full article can be freely read here.
