Gene context of Neuralgia

  • Our study indicated a marked elevation of SOM in patients suffering from postzoster neuralgia compared with controls [24].
  • CSF somatostatin is elevated in patients with postzoster neuralgia [24].
  • Continuous subcutaneous administration of the N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA) receptor antagonist ketamine in the treatment of post-herpetic neuralgia [25].
  • The 3 diagnostic groups consisted of: chronic lower lumbar pain of degenerative musculoskeletal etiology (LLP), post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN) and pain of non-organic origin in a group with a predominantly psychiatric disorder (PPD) [26].
  • Can neuralgias arise from minor demyelination? Spontaneous firing, mechanosensitivity, and afterdischarge from conducting axons [27].
