OBJECTIVE: We aimed to evaluate the quality of sleep (QoS) in patients with neuropathic pain (NP) and to investigate the association between possible QoS impairment and NP characteristics. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with NP and controls were examined. Age, sex, NP duration, NP cause (central, peripheral, or mixed), and pain intensity (with a Likert-type scale and visual analog scale) were recorded. NP was screened with Douleur Neuropathique 4 questions (DN4), and QoS was evaluated using the Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index (PSQI)...

BACKGROUND: Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) is a chronic neuropathic pain that results from alterations of the peripheral nervous system in areas affected by the herpes zoster virus. The symptoms include pain, paresthesia, dysesthesia, hyperalgesia, and allodynia. Despite the availability of pharmacological treatments to control these symptoms, no treatments are available to control the underlying pathophysiology responsible for this disabling condition. METHODS/DESIGN: Patients with herpes zoster who are at least 50 years old and have a pain score of 4 or higher on a visual analogue scale (VAS) will be recruited...

INTRODUCTION: Currently available analgesics are ineffective in 30-50% of patients suffering from neuropathic pain and often induce deleterious side effects. T-type calcium channel blockers (mibefradil, ethosuximide, NNC 55-0396) are of great interest for the development of new symptomatic treatments of neuropathic pain, due to their various effects on pain perception. Interestingly, ethosuximide, which has already been approved for treating epilepsy, is available on the European market for clinical use...

HIV-associated sensory peripheral neuropathy (HIV-SN) afflicts approximately 50% of patients on antiretroviral therapy, and is associated with significant neuropathic pain. Simple accurate diagnostic instruments are required for clinical research and daily practice in both high- and low-resource setting. A 4-item clinical tool (CHANT: Clinical HIV-associated Neuropathy Tool) assessing symptoms (pain and numbness) and signs (ankle reflexes and vibration sense) was developed by selecting and combining the most accurate measurands from a deep phenotyping study of HIV positive people (Pain In Neuropathy Study-HIV-PINS)...

Un enfant qui fréquente ma clinique s'est récemment fait une entorse à la cheville et il éprouve de la douleur et de la difficulté à supporter son poids sur la jambe affectée. Sa mère lui donne de l'acétaminophène parce qu'on lui a dit de ne jamais utiliser d'anti-inflammatoires non stéroïdiens (AINS) en raison de son asthme contrôlé par pharmacologie. L'asthme chez un enfant est-il une contre-indication à l'administration d'AINS? La maladie respiratoire exacerbée par les AINS existe-t-elle comme entité réelle? RÉPONSE: Les AINS sont des médicaments analgésiques et antipyrétiques efficaces...

BACKGROUND: Cancer pain is still inadequately treated in up to 60% of cancer patients. Based on the additional effect on the N-Methyl-d-Aspartate receptor, we expected that methadone (Met) could provide better pain relief than fentanyl (Fen) in cancer pain with a neuropathic pain component. METHODS: A randomised controlled trial was performed with 52 strong opioids naive patients with head-and-neck cancer with substantial pain (pain Numerical Rating Scale [NRS] > 4) and a neuropathic pain component (Douleur Neuropathique [DN4] > 4)...
