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. Too much of the oncogene Bcl-3 leads to chronic intestinal diseases, report investigators. They describe in a new report exactly how it throws the immune system off-balance.
  2. To treat headaches, back pain or fever, most of us have reached for ibuprofen at one point or another. But we often have to take doses every four to six hours if the pain warrants it. Now scientists are working on a way to package the commonly used drug so it can last longer. Their approach could also be used to deliver other drugs orally that currently can only be taken intravenously.
  3. Opioid use among Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation New Dawn veterans is roughly comparable to that of the general US population, suggests new research.
  4. It is safe for physicians to use the HEART (History, ECG, Age, Risk factors, and initial Troponin) score to make decisions about admission, observation, or discharge in patients presenting to the emergency department with chest pain. However, hesitance to refrain from admitting and testing patients with low scores could explain its small effect on health care costs seen in this analysis.
  5. Scientists have built a large body of knowledge about Lyme disease over the past 40 years, yet controversies remain and the number of cases continues to rise. In the United States, reported cases of Lyme disease, which is transmitted from wild animals to humans by tick bites, have tripled in the past 20 years. A multitude of interacting factors are driving the increase in Lyme disease cases, but their relative importance remains unclear.
