This seminar will review recent advances in pain assessment methods in laboratory species and discuss options for analgesic treatment. The difficult problem of determining the duration of treatment and frequency of dosing will be considered. Approaches to dealing with interactions between analgesic agents, pain, and research protocols will be discussed.
