Chronic pain resulting from inflammatory and neuropathic disorders causes considerable economic and social burden. In particular in the orthopaedic field, musculoskeletal pain is one of the most predominant kinds of chronic pain and its prevalence is increasing. Pharmacological therapies currently available for certain types of pain are only partially effective and may cause severe adverse side effects. Pharmacological results of this study support that the allosteric blockade of the C5aR represents a highly promising therapeutic approach to control chronic inflammatory and neuropathic pain.
