Insights in FD/MAS Bone Pain – Dr. Chelsea Hopkin at the 2023 FD/MAS Community Conference and ICFDMAS Meeting

Dr. Chelsea Hopkins from the University of Copenhagen presented research on fibrous dysplasia (FD)-related pain, focusing on behavioral studies using a mouse model expressing the mutated GNAS gene. The study included grid hanging, burrowing, and home cage monitoring. FD mice exhibited altered behaviors, and interventions with morphine and ibuprofen showed mixed results. The study provides insights into pain mechanisms in FD, with acknowledgment of collaborators at NIH.
The FD/MAS Alliance Community Conference combined patient-centered science and real-world strategies for patients and families living with fibrous dysplasia, McCune-Albright syndrome (FD/MAS).
The FD/MAS Alliance (formerly Fibrous Dysplasia Foundation) is a community-driven 501c3 nonprofit that fosters the development of evidence-based treatments for Fibrous Dysplasia and McCune-Albright syndrome (FD/MAS). We advance research, provide education and channel the voices of individuals and caregivers with FD/MAS. To support our work visit
