battelle - ExecutiveMosaicBattelle has won a $5.2 million follow-on contract to help carry out a National Institutes of Health-funded program to research temporomandibular disorders and other pain conditions.

The nonprofit science and technology organization will continue to analyze and collect data from patients enrolled in a study led by the University of North Carolina, the company said Wednesday.

An Institute of Medicine report says chronic pain affects 100 million adults in the U.S. and costs the nation $635 billion per year.

“First, we want to understand which patients have the disorder and what initiates it. Then we should be able to determine the best treatment,” said Sudip Parikh, Battelle health analytics general manager.

Battelle designed a web-based program to manage data from multiple clinical sites and accommodate protocols for the Orofacial Pain: Prospective Evaluation and Risk Assessment study.

Researchers will aim to identify the genetic characteristics of TMD by using genotyping technology, Battelle says.
