Immunohistochemical analysis of neuropeptides (protein gene product 9.5, substance P and calcitonin gene-related peptide) in hypertrophic burn scar with pain and itching.

Neuropeptides have been recently reported as having an important role in wound repair, and relief from pain and itching sensation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of neuropeptides on ...

Tomographic and histometric analysis of autogenous bone block and synthetic hydroxyapatite block grafts without rigid fixation on rabbit calvaria.

The preferred material for bone augmentation beyond the envelope of skeletal bone is the bone block graft, due to its dimensional stability. We evaluated the necessity of rigid fixation for the bone b...

Optical Nanoimaging for Block Copolymer Self-Assembly.

One approach towards optical nanoimaging involves sequential molecular localization of photoswitchable fluorophores to achieve high resolution beyond optical limit of diffraction. Block copolymer mice...

Comparing the effectiveness of ropivacaine 0.5% versus ropivacaine 0.2% for transabdominis plane block in providing postoperative analgesia after appendectomy.

The basis for the transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block involves infiltration of a local anesthetic into the neurofascial plane between the internal oblique and the transversus abdominis muscles, ca...

Tranversus Abdominis Plane Block During Abdominoplasty to Improve Postoperative Patient Comfort.

The transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block is an effective regional nerve block for the anterior abdominal wall. An anesthesiologist typically administers the TAP block preoperatively with ultrasound...

Clinical Trials [840 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Evaluation of Post Burn Rehabilitation Population for Itch Control

Severe itching following burn injury is a common complication. As many as 87% of burn patients report severe itching. The intense itching can increase anxiety and can interfere with sleep ...

Treatment of Cholestatic Pruritus With Sertraline

The goal of this study is to find an effective and well-tolerated medical therapy for itching due to liver disease. Persons with primary biliary cirrhosis or chronic hepatitis C are curren...

Naloxone for the Treatment of Opioid-Induced Pruritus

The purpose of this study is to improve how we treat itching, a common side effect associated with the use of morphine pain medication. Itching is a problem experienced by up to 30% of the...

Post Burn Pruritus Study in Patients Undergoing Wound Healing

The purpose of this study is to see if a drug called ondansetron (Zofran) controls itching from healing burn wounds as well or better than the usual drug used, diphenhydramine (Benadryl).

Nalbuphine for the Treatment of Opioid Induced Pruritus in Children

Itching is a frequent and disturbing side effect of the use of pain medication such as morphine. In the post-operative period, it can be more distressing to pediatric patients than their p...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.

Impaired conduction of cardiac impulse that can occur anywhere along the conduction pathway, such as between the SINOATRIAL NODE and the right atrium (SA block) or between atria and ventricles (AV block). Heart blocks can be classified by the duration, frequency, or completeness of conduction block. Reversibility depends on the degree of structural or functional defects.

A local anesthetic of the ester type that has a slow onset and a short duration of action. It is mainly used for infiltration anesthesia, peripheral nerve block, and spinal block. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1016).

Intense chronic itching in the anal area.

Agents, usually topical, that relieve itching (pruritus).
