The general aim of the current study is to describe the effect of pregabalin on colonic and sensory functions in healthy individuals.
1. To quantify the effect of describe the mode of action of pregabalin on colonic sensory and motor functions in visceral hyperalgesia on healthy adults.
3. To determine effective dose of pregabalin in reducing colonic sensation ratings and increasing pain thresholds during visceral hyperalgesia in healthy adults.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacodynamics Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)

This study, will compare pregabalin with placebo for the duration of 14 weeks to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pregabalin in patients with fibromyalgia.
Pregabalin is an alpha-2 delta ligand approved for the treatment of neuropathic pain, however, not all patients will respond to this drug. This study will compare the efficacy of pregabali...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate efficacy and safety of pregabalin in the treatment of postherpetic neuralgia in a dose-ranging manner.
This study is a Phase 1, randomized, open label, single dose, 6 treatment, 6 period, 6 sequence study in healthy adult volunteers. A total of 24 (4 in each treatment sequence) healthy male...
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety of pregabalin in adolescent patients who participated in the previous fibromyalgia study (A0081180) and who wish to recie...
Background Pregabalin is a gamma-aminobutyric acid analog which seems to be effective in different neuropathic pains, as well as in incisional and inflammatory injuries. This study evaluated the effec...
The objective is using saliva instead of plasma for pregabalin therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) since saliva reflects the free non-protein bound drug concentration, simple and noninvasive sampling, c...
Recovery after colonic surgery is invariably delayed by disturbed gut motility. It is commonly assumed that colonic motility becomes quiescent after surgery, but this hypothesis has not been evaluated...
Tryptamine, a tryptophan-derived monoamine similar to 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), is produced by gut bacteria and is abundant in human and rodent feces. However, the physiologic effect of tryptamine i...
Colonic ischemia is challenging to diagnose preoperatively. We present a patient with colonic ischemia, initially considered to have colonic obstruction. We review the history, physical findings, imag...
Inflammation of the COLONIC DIVERTICULA, generally with abscess formation and subsequent perforation.
Chronic or recurrent colonic disorders without an identifiable structural or biochemical explanation. The widely recognized IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME falls into this category.
A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of COLONIC DIVERTICULA in the COLON. Its pathogenesis is multifactorial, including colon aging, motor dysfunction, increases in intraluminal pressure, and lack of dietary fibers.
Functional obstruction of the COLON leading to MEGACOLON in the absence of obvious COLONIC DISEASES or mechanical obstruction. When this condition is acquired, acute, and coexisting with another medical condition (trauma, surgery, serious injuries or illness, or medication), it is called Ogilvie's syndrome.
Human colonic ADENOCARCINOMA cells that are able to express differentiation features characteristic of mature intestinal cells such as the GOBLET CELLS.
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...
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...
