OBJECTIVE Our goal was to gain a better understanding of the inflammatory pathways affected during localized vulvodynia, a poorly understood, common, and debilitating condition characterized by chronic pain of the vulvar vestibule.

We then examined intracellular mechanisms by which these… CONTINUE READING
