Temporomandibular Joint and Muscle Disorders (TMJMDs): Pathophysiological Mechanisms Linking Comorbid Conditions. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate research on discovering etiological and pathophysiological mechanisms underlying a set of chronic, comorbid conditions associated with TMJMDs. TMJMDs are a complex collection of diseases involving one or more tissues of the TMJ and facial musculature. Primary symptoms include chronic pain in facial muscles and limited and painful movement of the jaw. In addition, these Budgets for direct costs of up and other symptoms of TMJMD can occur together with to $50,000 (U.S.) per year U.S. Department of other chronic illnesses such as fibromyalgia, atypical face and a project duration of up to pain, trigeminal neuralgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa- Health and Human multiple chemical sensitivity, irritable bowel syndrome, May 8, 2009 two years may be requested files/PA-06-267.html for a maximum of $100,000 Services complex regional pain syndrome, migraine headache, direct costs over a two-year speech hearing, swallowing, balance, smell, and taste disorders, and certain cardiovascular diseases. This project period program announcement seeks research applications that use state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to discover molecular, physiological, and behavioral mechanisms responsible for the overlapping symptoms manifested in the set of disorders that may co- exist with TMJMD. These applications may have as their research focus the chronic, comorbid conditions themselves or TMJMDs, provided that the aims and goals of the project are to discover biological mechanisms linking the comorbidities.
