Human experimental pain models are useful in understanding the mechanisms underlying clinical pain conditions and can be used to test the analgesic efficacy of drugs used in the management of pain. Once established these models can be used as mechanism biomarkers in early development clinical studies to establish proof of mechanism for novel compounds. The cold pain model is a mechanistic pain biomarker with potential application in proof of mechanism studies. In this study we aim to set up this cold pain model at a Clinical Research Unit and demonstrate we can effectively screen subjects for this model and examine the effect of morphine, diphenhydramine, and gabapentin in the cold pain model.

The objective of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of gabapentin as adjunctive therapy to morphine in the treatment of severe chronic neuropathic or mixed pain in children from 3 month...
One dose of either gabapentin or placebo will be given to patients prior to thoracotomy. Patients will also receive an epidural infusion, intravenous patient-controlled analgesia with fent...
The evidence regarding effects of pain modulator like gabapentin on postoperative pain after sleeve gastrctomy is sparse. Gabapentin has anti-hyperalgesic and postoperative opioid-sparing ...
Total knee and hip arthroplasty are amongst the most painful procedures postoperatively, and pain management can be a challenge. Different measures have been introduced to manage severe p...
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the drug gabapentin (Neurontin®) for its ability to reduce postoperative pain, the need for morphine-like pain medication, and the sever...
While emerging pharmaceutical contaminants are monitored in wastewater treatment and the environment, there is little information concerning their microbial metabolites. The transformation of diphenhy...
To determine if preoperative pregabalin could decrease 24-h postoperative morphine consumption after spinal anesthesia with intrathecal morphine compared with placebo.
Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant drug widely prescribed for various ailments, including orofacial pain. It was once thought to have no potential for abuse; however, the last decade has seen a dramatic ...
Substitution by generic drugs is allowed when bioequivalence to the originator drug has been established. However, it is known that similarity in exposure may not be achieved at every occasion for all...
Placebo-controlled trials are the gold standard measure of efficacy in the development of new treatments for depression. However, the large placebo effects associated with standard measures of subject...
The principal alkaloid in opium and the prototype opiate analgesic and narcotic. Morphine has widespread effects in the central nervous system and on smooth muscle.
An opioid analgesic made from MORPHINE and used mainly as an analgesic. It has a shorter duration of action than morphine.
Strong dependence, both physiological and emotional, upon morphine.
Analogs or derivatives of morphine.
A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.
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. ...
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...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
