Pain Control - Science Daily

Pain Management and Pain Control. Read about causes of aches and pains and breaking news on conventional and alternative pain control methods.
  1. Researchers have discovered that a type of immune cell known as Langerhans appears to play an important role in photosensitivity, an immune system reaction to sunlight that can trigger severe skin rashes.
  2. A team led by researchers has developed a computational technique to reveal the unknown side effects -- both good and bad -- of hundreds of drugs. That knowledge could help pharmacologists discover new indications for drugs already on the market and repurpose them for other disorders. Using their unique method, the researchers discovered that two drugs commonly prescribed for non-coronary disorders may affect heart disease risk.
  3. A pioneering study into myeloma, a rare cancer, could lead to GPs using simple blood tests to improve early diagnosis.
  4. Half as many women in labor who were given a drug called remifentanil to help manage their pain needed a subsequent epidural, compared to the women given pethidine -- the current standard of care, according to an open-label randomized controlled trial.
  5. A new study has shown that use of peripheral nerve blocks in the treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia (TGN) may produce long-term pain relief.
