Conclusions This study shows that low-dose (30-mg) dextromethorphan is antihyperalgesic in humans on the areas of primary and secondary hyperalgesia and reverses peripheral and central neuronal sensitization. Because dextromethorphan had no intrinsic antinociceptive effect in acute pain on healthy skin,N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor may need to be sensitized by pain for dextromethorphan to be effective.

The Saturn V rocket was the most powerfulengine ever built. The computers available at the time were primitive, yet everything about the timing of burns and entry angles had to be precise. Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins were unbelievably brave. It was a stunning achievement. An American triumph.If the mission were pursued today, the president would be tweeting undignified comments and hogging the spotlight. The launch woul...

AbstractBackgroundIncomplete polyp resection (IPR) is recognized as a risk factor for interval colorectal cancer (ICC), and is, therefore, an important issue in polypectomy. Cold snare polypectomy (CSP) is a procedure that does not involve electrocautery and has no burn effect. Therefore, there is the possibility that the risk of ICC associated with IPR is higher in cases undergoing CSP than in those undergoing hot polypectomy. However, little is known about the risk factors for IPR after CSP.PurposePrecise identification of the risk factors can lead to prevention of IPR after CSP. Therefore, we performed this observationa...
