How Can Medtech Help with the Opioid Crisis?
Pain control is one of the biggest challenges facing America today, believes Dr. Peter Staats, co-founder and chief medical officer of electroCore. Chronic pain is an ongoing, debilitating problem for many patients, but for some, overuse of opioid treatments has led to addiction. Such a condition has led to an increasing number of U.S. deaths—one study published in the JAMA Network Open1 found that the percentage of all U.S. deaths attributable to opioids increased 292% between 2001 and 2016. This same study reported that in 2016, 20% of deaths of adults aged 24 to 35 years involve...

An amygdalar neural ensemble that encodes the unpleasantness of pain
Pain is an unpleasant experience. How the brain’s affective neural circuits attribute this aversive quality to nociceptive information remains unknown. By means of time-lapse in vivo calcium imaging and neural activity manipulation in freely behaving mice encountering noxious stimuli, we identified a distinct neural ensemble in the basolateral amygdala that encodes the negative affective valence of pain. Silencing this nociceptive ensemble alleviated pain affective-motivational behaviors without altering the detection of noxious stimuli, withdrawal reflexes, anxiety, or reward. Following peripheral nerve injury, inno...

OSU touts new nerve rerouting procedure to reduce pain, phantom limb issues in amputees
New research out of the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center suggests that patients who receive a procedure to reroute amputated nerves experience less pain, numbness and phantom limb pain than those who don’t receive the treatment. The procedure, dubbed targeted muscle reinnervation, has a significant effect on patients if performed at the time of amputation, according to the research. The procedure can also be performed to help amputees post-procedure, especially those who have experienced chronic pain related to the amputation. Severe nerve pain in amputated limbs often requires medication to manage and can...
