Concomitantly to my medical practice in the field of
anaesthesia and intensive care, I have been involved in the pain research
team (directed by Pr A. Woda then Pr R. Dallel) at Clermont-Ferrand since
1992. While my first topic was focused on the role of opioids in nociception
at the trigeminal level, I conducted clinical trials in the field of early
postoperative analgesia and of perispinal analgesia for labour. Since 2003, I
focused on postsurgical neuropathic pain, especially in its epidemiological
and mechanistic aspects. Since 2006, I work in Clinical Pharmacology as the
associate coordinator of the Clinical Investigation Centre of the University Hospital
of Clermont-Ferrand. My actual interests in research are:
risk factors of
postsurgical neuropathic pain;
anti-inflammatory drugs and pain at movement;
monitoring of intraoperative pain/analgesia;
relevance of clinical trials on postoperative pain/analgesia: outcomes,
methods of comparison.
