There is a brief summary of the background literature about purinergic signalling. The review then considers purinergic mechanosensory transduction involved in visceral, cutaneous and musculoskeletal nociception and on the roles played by P2X3, P2X2/3, P2X4, P2X7 and P2Y12 receptors in neuropathic and inflammatory pain. Current developments of compounds for the therapeutic treatment of both visceral and neuropathic pain are discussed.
