Central Pain Syndrome in Survivors of Head and Neck Cancer

2019-10-21 12:45:28 | BioPortfolio


This is a cross-sectional pilot study of head and neck cancer survivors who have completed multi-modal treatment to assess and characterize the presence of distinct pain syndromes.


Primary objectives:

- To correlate structural and functional MRI signature with one of three pain phenotypes in head and neck cancer survivors: 1) no pain, 2) central pain, and 3) nociceptive pain.

- To correlate the presence of chronic systemic symptoms with pain phenotype

Exploratory objectives:

- DNA, RNA, and plasma will be collected for genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic studies. Results will be vertically integrated along with the results of clinical studies described within this protocol to identify targets for future correlative studies.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

A technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.

Spectroscopic method of measuring the magnetic moment of elementary particles such as atomic nuclei, protons or electrons. It is employed in clinical applications such as NMR Tomography (MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING).

A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.

The creation of a visual display of the inside of the entire body of a human or animal for the purposes of diagnostic evaluation. This is most commonly achieved by using MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; or POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY.
