Pharmacotherapy for Neuropathic Pain in Japan.

Pharmacotherapy for Neuropathic Pain in Japan. J Nippon Med Sch. 2017;84(6):258-267 Authors: Masuda R, Ajimi J, Murata T Abstract Neuropathic pain (NeP) results from injury to, or disease of, the peripheral or central components of the neural systems involved in pain. In contrast to inflammatory pain, NeP can persist after healing from the initial injury has resolved. Antipyretic agents, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, and acetaminophen are ineffective, while specific agents such as gabapentinoids, antidepressants, antiepileptics, and opioids are effective in treating NeP. In this review, we address the definition of NeP, pharmacotherapy for NeP in Japan, pain classification, setting goals for successful NeP medication, and the Japanese algorithm for the pharmacotherapy of NeP with specific prescription guidance.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Although anticoagulation therapy can reduce the risk for pulmonary embolism (PE) recurrence, symptoms such as exertional dyspnea or pain can persist for several months to years. Therefore, we aimed to assess the improvement of ventilatory efficiency and exercise capacity during cardiopulmonary exercise test in PE patients after short duration of anticoagulant therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Pulmonary function testing, arterial blood gas analysis and cardiopulmonary exercise test were performed in 30 PE patients after anticoagulant therapy of 4 weeks (early phase) and after 6 months (late ...

Conclusion: Our article draws attention to the higher cardiovascular risk profile of middle-aged migraineurs and highlights the deficiency of primary prevention. Pain physicians must be aware of the cardiovascular aspects of migraine and holistic approach is required instead of focusing only on pain and pain relief. PMID: 32089752 [PubMed - in process]

Alex NowrastehGovernor DeSantis has been pushing Florida ’s legislature to enact an E‑Verify mandate for all new hires as a way to  “turn the spigot off the incentive that drives illegal immigration, ” as state Senator Joe Gruters said.So far, state legislators have resisted his efforts and watered down any potential bill that could pass —exempting some small businesses and agriculture. There was then a fierce debateover the exemptions and whether they should stand as the legislature has decided to pause briefly. The compromise bills are better than a mandate, but E ‑Verify s...

Authors: Rawson B Abstract Lumbar herniated disks present a common cause of significant axial low back and radiating leg pain. This situation poses a risk for potentially permanent neurologic compromise, including numbness, weakness, and bowel and bladder dysfunction. Traditional treatment strategies such as medications, epidural steroids, and surgery all carry potential risk for iatrogenic sequelae. Platelet-rich plasma can be processed to isolate and concentrate the growth factors contained in platelet α granules. This solution is then referred to as platelet lysate. Lumbar injection of platelet-rich plasma...
