Evaluation of Civamide Patch in Treatment of Postherpetic Neuralgia and Post-Incisional Neuralgia

This proof of concept study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of topically administered Civamide Patch for the treatment of moderate to severe daily pain associated with post...

Study of NGX-4010 With the Use of Open Label Lidocaine (2.5%)/Prilocaine (2.5%) Cream for the Treatment of Postherpetic Neuralgia (PHN)

This study is an open-label multi-center to evaluate the tolerability of treatment with NGX-4010 use with pre-patch topical application of a topical anesthetic cream. This is an open-lab...

A Study of the Effects of Topical Capsaicin in the Treatment of Provoked Vestibulodynia

This study aims to assess the pain on contact in provoked vestibulodynia, measured with VAS at week 0/week 2/week 6/week 12 after applying a patch of capsaicin.

Direct Potentiation of Capsaicin Current by Histamine and Its Effect by Suplatast on Rat Trigeminal Ganglia Neurons.

In this study, we investigated the effect of histamine on capsaicin-induced current and its influence by suplatast in rat trigeminal ganglia neurons using a patch-clamp technique. We found that histam...

Decompression by cutting the tentorium for trigeminal neuralgia caused by vertebrobasilar dolichoectasia.

Trigeminal neuralgia caused by vertebrobasilar dolichoectasia (VBD) is rare and challenging to treat. Some authors have reported techniques for treating trigeminal neuralgia caused by VBD using variou...

Psychophysical and vasomotor evidence for interdependency of TRPA1 and TRPV1 nociceptive responses in human skin: an experimental study.

The TRPA1 and TRPV1 receptors are important pharmaceutical targets for antipruritic and analgesic therapy. Obtaining further knowledge on their roles and inter-relationship in humans is therefore cruc...

Capsaicin alleviates hyperlipidemia, oxidative stress, endothelial dysfunction, and atherosclerosis in Guinea pigs fed on a high-fat diet.

Capsaicin has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, as well as some benefits on the cardiovascular system. The exact effects of capsaicin on atherosclerosis are poorly understood. To investigate ...

Capsaicin produces antidepressant-like effects in the forced swimming test and enhances the response of a sub-effective dose of amitriptyline in rats.

Transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) channels have been implicated in depression and anxiety. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antidepressant-like properties of the TRPV1 agonist ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An electrophysiologic technique for studying cells, cell membranes, and occasionally isolated organelles. All patch-clamp methods rely on a very high-resistance seal between a micropipette and a membrane; the seal is usually attained by gentle suction. The four most common variants include on-cell patch, inside-out patch, outside-out patch, and whole-cell clamp. Patch-clamp methods are commonly used to voltage clamp, that is control the voltage across the membrane and measure current flow, but current-clamp methods, in which the current is controlled and the voltage is measured, are also used.

A medicated adhesive patch placed on the skin to deliver a specific dose of medication into the bloodstream.

Skin tests in which the sensitizer is applied to a patch of cotton cloth or gauze held in place for approximately 48-72 hours. It is used for the elicitation of a contact hypersensitivity reaction.

An alkylamide found in CAPSICUM that acts at TRPV CATION CHANNELS.

Intense or aching pain that occurs along the course or distribution of a peripheral or cranial nerve.
