Purpose: To evaluate the preventative effects of pregabalin on pegfilgrastim-induced bone pain in cycle 1. Because granulocyte colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) receptors are found at nerve endings which modulate the pain signal, blocking this with pregabalin is theorized to prevent the occurrence of this adverse effect. Participants: Patients will be at least 18 years of age with either a diagnosis of a non-myeloid hematologic malignancy scheduled to initiate a cycle of chemotherapy that requires prophylactic use of a G-CSF, or with a diagnosis of breast cancer scheduled to initiate dose-dense doxorubicin/cyclophosphamide chemotherapy or docetaxel/cyclophosphamide that requires prophylactic use of a G-CSF. Procedures (methods): This is a randomized (1:1), single center, placebo-controlled, double blind, crossover phase II study. The primary objective is to compare the proportion of patients who have an increase in pain score of ≥3 from baseline in cycle 1 between Arm A (pregabalin) and Arm B (placebo). In consultation with the treating physician, the PI will determine what day pegfilgrastim will be initiated in each eligible, consented patient. Pregabalin or placebo will begin 4 days prior to pegfilgrastim administration, and continue for 7 additional days starting the day of pegfilgrastim administration.
This clinical trial studies how well Diode laser fiber type Selective Stimulator (DLss) works in predicting pain development in patients with ovarian cancer who are receiving chemotherapy. Stimulating of the pain nerve fibers in the skin with laser light stimulation may help to predict whether a patient will develop painful peripheral neuropathy, correlate with the severity of neuropathy during and after chemotherapy treatment, and may help to explain the mechanisms of chemotherapy-induced neuropathic pain (CIPN).
The use of lidocaine, as an anesthetic drug, during implantation of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator(ICD)will not result in a clinically significant alteration of the defibrillation threshold during ICD placement.
Evidence to support the effectiveness of ongoing opioid therapy for the treatment of chronic non-malignant pain is lacking. In fact, data suggest that patient outcomes improve when tapered off opioid analgesics. To better understand the role opioid therapy plays in the experience of pain, we will study measured pain sensitivity in opioid dependent patients over the course of and 3 months following a standardized opioid taper. By isolating the effect of opioid taper in patients without pain, preliminary evidence of effect size can be used to guide clinicians treating patients with chronic pain.
The purpose of this phase 2, randomised, double-blind, placebo controlled, parallel group, multicentre study is to investigate the efficacy, safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of a compound ONO-4474 in patients with moderate to severe pain due to osteoarthritis of the knee following 4 weeks of oral administration of ONO-4474.
This parallel, assessor blind, placebo-controlled, stratified, randomized study will investigate the effects of everyday pain on cognition and mobility in otherwise healthy individuals.
In many countries, caesarean section (CS) rates have been increasing. The international literature is unclear regarding the analgesic efficacy of the transversus abdominis plane block (TAPB) after a CS. In particular, no clinical trials exist in which the correct method of performing this block has been matched with the obtained analgesic effect after a CS. The primary goal of the study was to determine whether a correctly performed ultrasound-guided TAPB (USG-TAPB) could provide patients who underwent a CS with better control of acute postoperative pain during the first 72 hours after surgery
The combination of subarachnoid anaesthesia (SAB) and continuous local wound infiltration (LCWI) with a consistent amount of local anaesthetics could prevent central sensitization through an additive or synergistic effect because it can maintain continuous inhibition of nociceptive afferents
Liposomal bupivacaine or placebo will be administered at the end of a transobturator midurethral sling to determine if there is a difference in a patient's perceived postoperative pain.
Cervical incompetence complicates approximately 1 in 500 pregnancies . Those women with cervical incompetence are at risk for second trimester spontaneous abortion and preterm labor. Cervical cerclage reduces these risks but must be performed under general or neuraxial anesthesia. Some anesthesiologists prefer neuraxial anesthesia, as it reduces fetal exposure to medications and avoids the risks associated with loss of maternal airway reflexes under general anesthesia. Spinal anesthesia, in particular, has the added advantage of being technically simple while still providing a rapid, dense sensory block. For cerclage placement, patients require a sensory block from the T10 to S4 dermatome in order to cover sensation from the cervix as well as the vagina and perineum. Patients presenting for cerclage under spinal anesthesia pose a dosing challenge given the physiologic changes associated with pregnancy. As women progress with their pregnancy, they require lower doses of intrathecal local anesthetic to achieve similar block level. Multiple studies have demonstrated that these changes start during the second trimester. Inadequate sensory coverage with a spinal anesthetic typically necessitates conversion to general anesthesia, causing additional time wasted and added risk to the patient and fetus. Anecdotally, this is the reason why some anesthesiologists choose general anesthesia for patients undergoing cerclage over a spinal anesthetic. As there is currently no literature determining the correct dosage for these patients, we propose a dose-response study to determine the ED90 of intrathecal lidocaine for adequate anesthesia for elective cervical cerclage placement.The findings of this study will help determine the minimum dose of intrathecal lidocaine necessary to provide adequate spinal anesthesia for cervical cerclage for 90% of women. This will help decrease the frequency of inadequate anesthesia for cervical cerclage.
