Disease relevance of Pelvic Pain


Psychiatry related information on Pelvic Pain


High impact information on Pelvic Pain

  • Relaxin levels in patients with pelvic pain were close to normal non-pregnant levels by the third postnatal day [8].
  • The clinical effectiveness of chronic progestin treatment in endometriosis-associated pelvic pain may be attributed to its inhibition of RANTES production and its suppression of inflammatory responses in the pelvis [9].
  • Venlafaxine XR and chronic pelvic pain syndrome [10].
  • Imaging evaluation of acute right lower quadrant and pelvic pain in adolescent girls. American College of Radiology. ACR Appropriateness Criteria [11].
  • In 2 patients, the effects of the morphine sulfate on their unilateral pelvic pain wore off after 4 and 6 months because of tumor progression [12].

Chemical compound and disease context of Pelvic Pain


Biological context of Pelvic Pain


Anatomical context of Pelvic Pain


Gene context of Pelvic Pain

  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study suggests that IL-10 may have a role in the pain symptoms experienced by patients with chronic prostatitis-chronic pelvic pain syndrome [26].
  • In fact, pilot trials showed that aromatase inhibitors could decrease pelvic pain associated with endometriosis [27].
  • PSA is a candidate self-antigen in autoimmune chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome [28].
  • BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to determine whether psychiatric disturbances, particularly somatization, and an increased number of traumatic and critical life events, which have been found in women with idiopathic chronic pelvic pain (ICPP), can also be observed in women with chronic pelvic pain and abdominal adhesions (ACPP) [29].
  • CONCLUSIONS: The existence of a rich TRPV1 sensory innervation in the human prostate may open new therapeutic perspectives for the treatment of pain in patients with chronic prostatitis (Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome) [30].
