‘Omics’: an emerging field in pain research and management

Precision medicine is an emerging approach for prevention and treatment of diseases considering individuals’ uniqueness. Omics provide one step forward toward advanced precision medicine and include technologies such as genomics, proteomics and metabolomics generating valuable data through characterization of entire biological systems. With the aid of omics, a major shift has been started to occur in understanding of diseases followed by potential fundamental changes in medical care strategies. This short review aims at providing some examples of current omics that are applied in the field of pain in terms of new biomarkers for diagnosis of different pain types, stratification of patients and new therapeutic targets. Implementation of omics would most likely offer breakthrough in the future of pain management.
