Fibromyalgia and microglial TNF-α: Translational research using human blood induced microglia-like cells

Abstract

Fibromyalgia is a refractory disease characterized by chronic intractable pain and psychological suffering, the cause of which has not yet been elucidated due to its complex pathology. Activation of immune cells in the brain called microglia has attracted attention as a potential underlying pathological mechanism in chronic pain. Until recently, however… (More)
