Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) is a medical condition that affects the patient’s sympathetic nervous system. RSD is characterized by severe chronic pain in an affected region, such as a patient’s arm or leg. After the onset, RSD will continue to worsen as time passes.
RSD is a debilitating and painful condition that has a significant impact on the patient’s daily life. While there is no cure, a number of treatments may be administered to relieve RSD symptoms. If treated early, patients typically have a better outcome.
What Is the Sympathetic Nervous System?In order to investigate and better understand Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, it is helpful to first understand the sympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system is one of the three main parts of the autonomic nervous system. The other two parts of the autonomic nervous system include the parasympathetic and
This system regulates bodily functions such as constricting blood vessels, heart rate, and increasing blood pressure. While the association is not completely known, many believe that abnormal or excessive responses of sympathetic nervous system portions are the cause of RSD pain.

The London Pain Consortium was formed in June 2002 by a grant from the Wellcome Trust, under its Integrative Animal and Human Physiology Initiative (IAHP). The purpose of the consortium is to undertake internationally competitive research in pain research and to train scientists in the integrative physiology and genomics of pain.
Our research focuses on the genomics of pain at several levels, including transcriptional profiling and the establishment of a pain database, the study of transgenic mice and the evaluation of pain sensitivity in people (more details).
In 2008 the London Pain Consortium was re-funded for a further 5 years under the Wellcome Trust Strategic Awards (more details).
Our training programme includes a 4 year PhD scheme, multidisciplinary post-doctoral fellowships, Ph.D. training for clinicians and opportunities for summer students (more details).
