RFA-NS-22-016

Funding Opportunity Purpose

More than 25 million Americans suffer from daily chronic pain, a highly debilitating medical condition that is complex and difficult to manage. In recent decades, there has been an overreliance in the prescription of opioids for chronic pain despite their poor ability to improve function and high addiction liability. This contributed to a significant and alarming epidemic of opioid overdose deaths and addictions. Innovative scientific solutions to develop alternative pain treatment options are thus critically needed. Through targeted research efforts, the NIH HEAL Initiative aims to support the development of safe and effective devices to treat pain with little or no addiction liability. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is designed to support interdisciplinary research teams of multiple PD/PIs to investigate the mechanism of action of device-based pain relief with the overall goal of optimizing therapeutic outcomes for FDA-approved or -cleared technologies. Program teams are expected to accomplish goals that require considerable synergy and collaborative interactions. Teams must leverage appropriate multi-disciplinary expertise to develop new principles and methods for experimentation, analysis, and interpretation. Teams are encouraged to consider objectives that will produce major advances in the field of device-based pain relief.

HEAL Initiative: Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) regarding the Availability of Administrative Supplements to Support Strategies to Advance the Study of Chronic Overlapping Pain Conditions (COPCs)

Notice of Special Interest
Wednesday, August 25, 2021
Saturday, November 6, 2021
333
NOT-NS-21-068

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The purpose of this request for administrative supplements to current NIH-fundedstudies is to encourage clinical and translational research that will increase our understanding of the prevalence, psychological variables, and response to therapy in those individuals with multiple chronic overlapping pain conditions (COPCs). Recent clinical findings suggest that substantial overlap may exist between chronic pain conditions. Individuals diagnosed with one pain disorder often exhibit characteristics of additional chronic painful conditions or transition to other diagnostic categories. A better understanding is needed of the characteristics of overlapping pain conditions, the progression of these conditions, and therapeutic approaches best suited for treating individuals with COPCs. Research efforts in chronic pain conditions have focused on single disorders or types of pain such as neuropathic and inflammatory pain. These research efforts have generated a substantial body of information advancing our understanding of the underlying mechanisms of pain onset and development, the transition from acute to chronic pain, and therapeutic targets for treating acute and chronic pain. Over the past twenty years reports have documented the presence of more than one chronic pain condition in subjects with pain. Studies have identified overlap between a number of chronic pain conditions, including lower back pain, fibromyalgia (FM), vulvodynia, endometriosis, functional gastrointestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), migraine, tension headache, low back pain, and urologic chronic pelvic pain syndromes (UCPPS). These results suggest that chronic pain conditions may not be localized conditions but may share symptoms and mechanisms that involve a general central nervous system dysfunction as well as disorder-specific symptoms.
