- The association between neighbourhood socio-economic status and the onset of chronic widespread pain: results from the EPIFUND studyKelly A Davies
Arthritis Research Campaign ARC, Epidemiology Unit, Research School of Translational Medicine, Stopford Building, University of Manchester, Manchester, United Kingdom
Eur J Pain 13:635-40. 2009..The aim of this study was to examine the hypothesis that socio-economic status predicts the onset of CWP but that this relationship would be explained by psychological factors...
- Restorative sleep predicts the resolution of chronic widespread pain: results from the EPIFUND studyK A Davies
Arthritis Research Campaign Epidemiology Unit, Stopford Building, University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9PT, UK
Rheumatology (Oxford) 47:1809-13. 2008....
- Association of HTR2A polymorphisms with chronic widespread pain and the extent of musculoskeletal pain: results from two population-based cohortsBarbara I Nicholl
University of Manchester, Manchester, UK
Arthritis Rheum 63:810-8. 2011..The aim of the current study was to investigate whether genetic variation in genes across the serotoninergic system is associated with chronic widespread pain (CWP) and the number of pain sites reported...
- No evidence for a role of the catechol-O-methyltransferase pain sensitivity haplotypes in chronic widespread painBarbara I Nicholl
Manchester Academic Health Science Centre, University of Manchester, UK
Ann Rheum Dis 69:2009-12. 2010..The aim of this study was to investigate the association between the catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) 'pain sensitivity' haplotypes and chronic widespread pain (CWP) in two distinct cohorts...
- Do genetic predictors of pain sensitivity associate with persistent widespread pain?Kate L Holliday
Arthritis Research Campaign Epidemiology Unit, University of Manchester, Manchester, UK
Mol Pain 5:56. 2009..Further evidence of null association in large independent cohorts is required to truly exclude these SNPs as genetic risk factors for CWP...
- Genetic variation in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal stress axis influences susceptibility to musculoskeletal pain: results from the EPIFUND studyKate L Holliday
ARC Epidemiology Unit, University of Manchester, Manchester M13 9PT, UK
Ann Rheum Dis 69:556-60. 2010..To determine if genetic variation in genes in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, the primary stress response system, influences susceptibility to developing musculoskeletal pain...
- Chronic widespread pain predicts physical inactivity: results from the prospective EPIFUND studyJohn McBeth
Arthritis Research Campaign Epidemiology Unit, School of Translational Medicine, Stopford Building, University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9PT, UK
Eur J Pain 14:972-9. 2010..9 (1.3-2.9)). A similar association was observed with exercise that lasted at least 20 min (RRR=1.9 (1.3-2.8)). The current study suggests that low self-reported levels of physical activity are a consequence of having CWP...
