This study will determine the safety and efficacy of pregabalin (Lyrica) when administered by itself (without any other anti-epileptic medication) to epilepsy subjects for the treatment of...
The primary purpose of the protocol is to evaluate the long-term safety of pregabalin in patients with partial seizures.
The purpose of this study is to assess whether Lyrica is a safe and effective treatment for partial epilepsy in comparison with an established treatment, Lamictal.
This study will measure the impact of treatment with pregabalin in adult men and women who have a diagnosis of peripheral neuropathic pain (pain caused by a primary lesion of the periphera...
The objective of study is to assess the clinical improvement (change in seizure frequency), safety, and tolerability of subjects with partial seizures following adjunctive therapy of prega...
To determine if preoperative pregabalin could decrease 24-h postoperative morphine consumption after spinal anesthesia with intrathecal morphine compared with placebo.
The aim of this study was to determine the pattern of use of pregabalin and the appropriateness of treatment, so that interventions could be designed to improve various clinical approaches to the use ...
The effect of PF-05089771, a selective, peripherally restricted Nav1.7 sodium channel blocker on pain due diabetic peripheral neuropathy was investigated in a randomised, placebo and active-controlled...
Background Pregabalin is used e. g. for the treatment of neuropathic pain and anxiety disorder. Recently, its potential for abuse and addiction has become apparent. Methods From 2008 - 2015,...
The International League Against Epilepsy published a new classification of epileptic seizures and epilepsies. It is more transparent and important notions like etiologies and comorbities have been ad...
Conditions characterized by recurrent paroxysmal neuronal discharges which arise from a focal region of the brain. Partial seizures are divided into simple and complex, depending on whether consciousness is unaltered (simple partial seizure) or disturbed (complex partial seizure). Both types may feature a wide variety of motor, sensory, and autonomic symptoms. Partial seizures may be classified by associated clinical features or anatomic location of the seizure focus. A secondary generalized seizure refers to a partial seizure that spreads to involve the brain diffusely. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp317)
A disorder characterized by recurrent focal onset seizures which have sensory (i.e., olfactory, visual, tactile, gustatory, or auditory) manifestations. Partial seizures that feature alterations of consciousness are referred to as complex partial seizures (EPILEPSY, COMPLEX PARTIAL).
A gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) derivative that functions as a CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKER and is used as an ANTICONVULSANT as well as an ANTI-ANXIETY AGENT. It is also used as an ANALGESIC in the treatment of NEUROPATHIC PAIN and FIBROMYALGIA.
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
A partial denture constructed before the teeth it replaces are removed. It is then inserted immediately after the removal of the natural teeth for functional and cosmetic reasons during the healing process. It is to be replaced later by the fitted partial denture.
