NCT ID: NCT01314482 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Post-operative Intercostal Neuralgia

Minocycline for the Prevention of Post-operative Intercostal Neuralgia

Start date: November 2010
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

In about half the patients who have an open chest surgery there is persistent severe pain in the chest. The investigators are examining whether minocycline, a commonly used antibiotic, will prevent pain. Minocycline blocks the activity of immune cells which the investigators believe are responsible for prolonging the pain.
