Study Shows Most Physicians Lack Knowledge Of Medical Cannabis

A study of more than 400 health care professionals has revealed that most physicians lack knowledge of medicinal cannabis, with 65% saying that they have been asked about medical marijuana as a treatment for chronic pain but were unable to answer their patients ’ questions.

Am J Addict. 2021 Dec 6. doi: 10.1111/ajad.13245. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Expectancies for alcohol analgesia (i.e., expectations that drinking alcohol will reduce pain) have been associated with greater alcohol consumption among individuals with chronic pain, and there is reason to believe that such expectancies may also contribute to drinking behavior among alcohol users without a current chronic pain condition. Therefore, the objective of these analyses was to test associations between a measure of expectancies for alcohol analgesia (EAA) and alcohol use among drinkers without current pai...

The incidence of chronic pain is especially high in women, but the underlying mechanisms remain poorly understood. Interleukin-23 (IL-23) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine and contributes to inflammatory diseases (e.g., arthritis and psoriasis) through dendritic/T cell signaling. Here we examined the IL-23 involvement in sexual dimorphism of pain, using an optogenetic approach in transgenic mice expressing channelrhodopsin-2 (ChR2) in TRPV1-positive nociceptive neurons. In situ hybridization revealed that compared to males, females had a significantly larger portion of small-sized (100-200 μm2) Trpv1+ neurons in dorsal roo...

To the Editor We do not believe the recent Review about chronic pelvic pain (CPP) in women accurately reflected the current state of guidelines and commonalities among the guidelines. First, we are concerned that a systematic search strategy was not performed because many of the guidelines reviewed are outdated and selected endometriosis guidelines were included despite the authors ’ argument that “the topic of CPP is broad…” and “it is beyond the scope of this review to perform an in-depth analysis of all CPP disorders.”

In Reply We respectfully disagree with Ms Mardon and colleagues that our Review on CPP in women was not extensive. We reviewed thousands of articles and the guidelines available in print at the time of our publication.

ConclusionOur results indicate that DREADDs may offer an effective therapeutic approach for treatment of trigeminal neuropathic pain.SignificanceTrigeminal neuropathic pain is highly resistant to therapy and we are in dire need of novel approaches. This study provides further evidence for the successful application of DREADDs as an effective tool for modulating central nervous system function. CNO mediated activation of hM4Di-DREADDs in the trigeminal ganglion (TG) attenuates nerve injury induced neuropathic pain by acting on hyperactive TG cells. It also establishes the TG as an effective target to manage pain in the face...
