Thank you for visiting my fund-raising page for the benefit of RSDS Association.
Neuropathic pain is the most difficult of all pain to treat and
RSD is one of the most severe syndromes.
REFLEX SYMPATHETIC DYSTROPHY SYNDROME ASSOCIATION for decades has funded research into neuropathic pain, research that applies to all causes of pain.
In October 2010, RSDSA sponsored a workshop on activated glia and neuropathic pain.
You can read recent publications by those leading researchers here.
“In attendance at the conference [were] faculty from universities and medical institutions engaged in research and the practice of Neuropathic Pain Disorders, Activated Glia and Neuropathic Pain Disorders, Imaging Activated Glia and CRPS and Movement Disorders.
“We [invited] to this meeting basic and material scientists currently not involved in chronic pain research; as well as representatives from the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, the ALS Therapy Development Institute, Myelin Repair Foundation, National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) which is a branch of NIH.
“Because we think the workshop will impact the direction of basic and clinical research participants, we will discuss the possible formation of a Neuroinflammation Research Consortium to foster interactions between basic researchers, clinical researchers, and the Trauma Related Neuronal Dysfunction (TREND) Knowledge Consortium. Going forward, we hope to foster collaboration amongst researchers in glia attenuation by providing small travel grants.”
Research was presented on promising new medications, one of which reversed Multiple Sclerosis-like paralysis in rats – a historical first. That was later presented by Distinguished Professor Linda Watkins, PhD, at the Society of Neuroscience annual meeting November 26, 2010, and made headlines here.
A summary of the RSDSA conference on activated glia has now been published: Activated Glia- Targets for the Treatment of Neuropathic Pain. This article is reprinted with permission from Practical Pain Management. 2010;10(9):78-84.

Nancy L. Sajben, MD
Supporting education, research, and treatment of neuropathic pain
Dr. Nancy Sajben and PainSanDiego recommend donating to the RSDS Association solely as a professional matter.
I am not affiliated with the RSDSA’s excellent organization.
However, I am a member of the Neuroinflammation Research Consortium that is
comprised of scientists and clinicians with an interest in glia at universities and clinics across the globe.
Please help me in fund-raising. Any thoughts and suggestions are welcome.
