The primary purpose is to study the predictive value of preserved nociceptors and large afferent fibers and dynamic mechanical allodynia on the effect of lidocaine patch. The primary outcome measure is the predictive role for these three measures for obtaining a response to lidocaine. A responder is defined as a person with at least a 2-point pain reduction to lidocaine (change in median pain intensity (measured on a 10 point numeric rating scale) of pain from the baseline week to the last week of lidocaine treatment). Secondary effect variable will be efficacy of lidocaine versus placebo on pain reduction (baseline week versus last week of each treatment) and pain relief (complete, good, moderate, slight, none, or worse) for spontaneous and evoked pain, and effect on ongoing pain, brush evoked allodynia, cold and warm allodynia, and pinprick hyperalgesia evaluated on each visit.

Randomized control trial evaluating use of lidocaine vs placebo patch for post-operative cesarean incision pain.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate lidocaine as topical treatment for peripheral neuropathic pain (as stand-alone treatment and in combination with systemic treatment)
The purpose of this study is to see if an investigational drug known as the lidocaine 5% patch is safe and effective in reducing the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy, to examine how topical...
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...
Several guidelines for neuropathic pain management and various effective drugs are available; however, neuropathic pain remains undertreated. This retrospective study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of...
Adequate pain control is a major concern in the immediate postoperative period. In multiple strategies for postoperative pain management, topical analgesics have significant advantages of minimizing s...
Lidocaine infusion therapy (LIT) is an effective treatment for relieving neuropathic pain (NeP). However, it remains unclear whether pain relief can be sustained through repeated lidocaine infusions. ...
Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) characterized by chronic neuropathic pain is a common complication of herpes zoster. We investigated the efficacy, safety and cost of treating refractory chronic neuropath...
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 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 medicated adhesive patch placed on the skin to deliver a specific dose of medication into the bloodstream.
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.
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.
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...
