Abstract Animal models suggest that chemokines are important mediators in the pathophysiology of neuropathic pain. Indeed, these substances have been called “gliotransmitters,” a term that illustrates the close interplay between glial cells and neurons in the context of neuroinflammation and pain. However, evidence in humans is scarce. The aim of the study was to determine a comprehensive cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) inflammatory profile of patients with neuropathic pain. Our hypothesis was that we would thereby find indications of a postulated on-going process of central neuroinflammation. Samples of CSF were c...

Funding Opportunity PAR-18-212 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. Patients with many disabilities report problems sleeping, but specific sleep disorders are often not diagnosed. Because sleep affects many physiological and behavioral parameters--depression, anxiety, pain, cancer, cardiovascular changes, immune function-- sleep disorders should be diagnosed and appropriately treated to maximize benefit of rehabilitation. Research is needed on ways to best approach this complexity in the context of medical rehabilitation for a primary, non-sleep disorder.

ConclusionPatients’ self‐reported cognitive concerns concurred with objectively measured performance, independent of age, education and catastrophizing. Moreover, those with severe anxiety were more accurate in predicting their cognitive performance. The findings highlight some interesting cognition–mood relationships, and suggest that easy‐to‐administer questionnaires, such as the Everyday Memory Questionnaire – Revised and the Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function – Adult Version, may be useful to capture cognitive concerns in clinical settings. SignificanceCognitive concerns in ch...

Abstract ObjectivesTo investigate the quality of sleep and the psychological profiles of a large cohort of Italian patients with burning mouth syndrome (BMS) and to clarify the relationships between these variables and pain. MethodsIn this case‐control study, 200 patients with BMS versus an equal number of age and sex‐matched healthy controls, recruited in 10 Universities, were enrolled. The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAM‐D), Hamilton Rating Scale for Anxiety (HAM‐A), Numeric Pain Intensity Scale (NRS) and Total Pain Rating Index (T...

ConclusionsThe HEAD program, created to help manage lengthy appointment wait times, was associated with lowering migraine‐associated disability, decreasing ED visits, reducing medication and narcotic use and overuse. Education empowers patients to take an active role in their care, especially in regards to improving treatment timing and modifiable lifestyle behaviors. This education program can potentially play a role in early intervention for headache patients especially with chronic migraine and medication overuse headache.

DiscussionThis trial will be the first randomised controlled trial to examine sleep-enhancing treatment in trauma-affected refugees, as well as the first trial to investigate the effect of IRT and mianserin in this population. Therefore, this trial may optimise treatment recommendations for sleep disturbances in trauma-affected refugees. Based on our findings, we expect to discuss the effect of treatment, focussing on sleep disturbances. Furthermore, the results will provide new information regarding the association between sleep disturbances, PTSD symptoms, psychosocial functioning and quality of life in trauma-affected r...

Abstract ObjectiveTo identify patient characteristics associated with sleep disturbance and worsening of sleep in individuals diagnosed with localized colorectal cancer (CRC), and assess heterogeneity in these relationships. MethodsData were from the MY‐Health study, a community‐based observational study of adults diagnosed with cancer. Patient‐Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System® (PROMIS) Sleep Disturbance, Anxiety, Depression, Fatigue, and Pain Interference measures were administered. Participants self‐reported demographics, comorbidities, and treatment information. Regression mixture and multipl...
