Abstract

Biological therapy of pain holds great promise and is rapidly developing. Despite the significant numbers of preclinical studies in the last two decades only a single biological agent, the cone snail toxin ziconotide, has been advanced through all stages and licensed for clinical use. Biological therapy of pain is thus here to stay, but will need more substantial proof of efficacy and safety before being widely accepted and routinely used.
