The efficacy of fentanyl TTS for the treatment of neuropathic pain remains to be established, although opioids in general are clearly effective for neuropathic pain and fentanyl TTS has be...
The purpose of this study is to find out patient satisfaction with the treatment with fentanyl matrix and utility of fentanyl matrix in patients with pain inadequately controlled by non-op...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of the matrix fentanyl patch ZR-02-01 in providing relief of non-malignant chronic pain.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the usefulness of fentanyl matrix by assessing patients' satisfaction when administrating fentanyl matrix, a background pain treatment, and a break...
The primary objective of this study is to develop a pharmacokinetic (PK) and a pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PK-PD) model for gabapentin in patients with neuropathic pain. The se...
Is gabapentin associated with pain relief in people with chronic neuropathic pain?
The goal of our review was to emphasize important aspects that physicians should take into consideration when prescribing topical analgesics as part of chronic neuropathic pain treatment. We discuss t...
α2δ-1, commonly known as a voltage-activated Cachannel subunit, is a binding site of gabapentinoids used to treat neuropathic pain and epilepsy. However, it is unclear how α2δ-1 contributes to neu...
Thrombospondin-4 acts on pre-synaptic calcium channel alpha-2-delta-1 subunit to induce synaptogenesis between sensory and spinal cord neurons through a T-type calcium channel dependent pathway that is blocked by early, low-dose gabapentin treatments.
Nerve injury induces concurrent upregulation of calcium channel alpha-2-delta-1 subunit (Cav α2 δ1 ) and extracellular matrix protein thrombospondin-4 (TSP4) in dorsal root ganglia and dorsal spinal...
Astrocyte activation has been implicated in the pathogenesis of neuropathic pain, but the involvement of kindlin-1 in astrocyte activation and neuropathic pain has not yet been illustrated. Using a ch...
A potent narcotic analgesic, abuse of which leads to habituation or addiction. It is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. Fentanyl is also used as an adjunct to general anesthetics, and as an anesthetic for induction and maintenance. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1078)
A widely distributed purinergic P2X receptor subtype that plays a role in pain sensation. P2X4 receptors found on MICROGLIA cells may also play a role in the mediation of allodynia-related NEUROPATHIC PAIN.
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.
Disorder of the peripheral nerves that primarily impair small nerve fibers. The affected small nerve fibers include myelinated A-delta fibers (see A FIBERS) and unmyelinated C FIBERS. Because these small fibers innervate skin and help control autonomic function, their neuropathy presents with neuropathic pain, reduced thermal and pain sensitivity, and autonomic dysfunction (e.g. abnormal sweating or facial flushing). Small fiber neuropathy can be idiopathic or associated with underlying diseases (e.g., AMYLOIDOSIS; DIABETES MELLITUS; SARCOIDOSIS; or VASCULITIS).
A secreted matrix metalloproteinase that is the predominant proteolytic activity in the enamel matrix. The enzyme has a high specificity for dental enamel matrix protein AMELOGENIN.
Pharmacy is the science and technique of preparing as well as dispensing drugs and medicines. It is a health profession that links health sciences with chemical sciences and aims to ensure the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs. The scope of...
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
