Abatement of fracture-related pain is important in patient welfare. However, the frequently used non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are considered to impair fracture healing through blockade of cyclooxygenase-2. An alternative for fracture-related pain treatment may be blockade of nerve growth factor (NGF)/neurotrophic
