Authors: Ren WJ, Fu J, Yin HY, Xu NG, Tang CZ, Liu LZ, Yu SG, Tang Y Abstract Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is an important mediator participating in both physiological and pathological systems and related to the inflammatory process. Acupuncture has a therapeutic effect on inflammatory pain. However, whether H2S generated in the central nervous system (CNS) is a mediator of electroacupuncture (EA) treatment for inflammatory pain is unknown.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe opioid epidemic has become a major public health crisis over the last two decades.

As a result of the worsening opioid crisis, various guidelines and government regulations have recently been implemented to cope with this opioid problem as it affects all fields of medicine, urology included. Many conditions in urology involve chronic pain medication, including neurogenic bladder. Thi...

One or 2 decades ago, oncologists focused on only cancer treatments or acute care related to cancer. Since cancer care is considered as long-term cares, cancer patients require self-management (SM) ability or skill to manage their symptoms and daily cares. This mixed-method review is to evaluate quantitative and qualitative studies, which were conducted using non-traditional SM interventions for cancer pain based. This review also explores the process of SM in the chronic care model (CCM). PubMed, CINAHL, Scopus, and Wiley were used from 2011 to 2018. A total of 16 quantitative and 2 qualitative studies were included for t...

If you have chronic arthritis pain, you may be wondering about cannabidiol (CBD) as a treatment. CBD, along with delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other chemicals, is found in marijuana. But unlike THC, CBD is not “psychoactive” — that is, it does not cause the intoxication or high associated with marijuana use. There’s a good chance you’ve tried it already: according to a Gallup poll in August of 2019, about 14% of Americans report using CBD products, and the number one reason is pain.
