Psychophysical Studies of Cancer Therapy Pain

Study Participation: Participants will be contacted either before their initiation of chemotherapy or following their referral to pain management service for neuropathic cancer treatment-related pain. The sensory tests will take about 1 hour to complete. These tests will seek to find the threshold (a measure of sensitivity) at which you ...

Phase N/A

Ibuprofen or Morphine in Treating Pain in Patients Undergoing Pleurodesis for Malignant Pleural Effusion

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To evaluate the efficacy of a non-steroidal based regimen comprising ibuprofen in decreasing post-pleurodesis pain as compared to an opiate-based regimen comprising morphine sulfate in patients with malignant pleural effusion. - To evaluate whether chest drain size influences the amount of post-pleurodesis pain. OUTLINE: This is a ...

Phase

Magnetic Acupressure in Reducing Pain in Cancer Patients Undergoing Bone Marrow Aspiration and Biopsy

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To compare pain rating in cancer patients undergoing bone marrow aspiration and biopsy (BMAB) treated with magnetic acupressure at bilateral large intestine 4 (LI 4) points vs sham acupressure at bilateral proximal fourth interosseus space of the hand. Secondary - To compare the duration of BMAB, patient's ...

Phase N/A

Benefit of Lidocaine Perfusion in Cancer Related Visceral Pain Resistant to Morphinics

This study will evaluate the benefit of lidocaine perfusion in cancer related visceral pain resistant to morphinics. It is an efficacy study in adults and children and a randomized prospective study.

Phase

Effects of N-Methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA)-Receptor Antagonism on Hyperalgesia Opioid Use and Pain After Radical Prostatectomy

The immediate postoperative period is associated with spontaneous pain and hyperalgesia, i.e., increased pain response (both intensity and duration) to normally painful stimuli following tissue injury or damage. The development and maintenance of secondary hyperalgesia depend on complex plastic changes in spinal cord dorsal horn cells after peripheral injury or ...

Phase

Potential Vertebroplasty Use in the Treatment of Vertebral Metastasis From Breast and Prostate Cancer

Included patients presenting with spinal metastasis secondary to breast or prostate cancer are randomized to two groups, intervention and control. Both groups receive standard radiotherapy, which is currently the gold standard of care for such patients. The intervention group will also receive a vertebroplasty [single or multiple level(s)], while the ...

Phase

Morphine After Radiofrequency Ablation of Painful Bone Metastases in Patients With Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Measure the efficacy of morphine sulfate at 8 weeks after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of bone metastases. Secondary - Assess minimum and average pain and analyze use of morphine sulfate before and after RFA. - Determine disease progression by CT scan of bone. - Evaluate the percentage of ...

Phase

Amitriptyline or Pregabalin to Treat Neuropathic Pain in Incurable Cancer

Rationale: Often, incurable cancer patients suffer from severe symptoms as (neuropathic) pain and fatigue with polypharmaceutic interventions as a consequence. Regarding neuropathic pain in incurable cancer patients, pregabalin has been registered for neuropathic non-cancer pain, and amitriptyline is not registered for neuropathic pain, but is recommended as the drug of ...

Phase

Peri-Operative Management of Patients Undergoing Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery

Patients will be randomized into one of 3 groups - A, B or C. In order to remove the major confounding factor of hypovolaemia, all patients will have an oesophageal doppler inserted in order to achieve fluid optimisation. Each group will then either have an epidural, spinal or a PCA ...

Phase

Androgen Ablation With or Without Docetaxel in Treating Patients With Advanced Prostate Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Compare the 2-year progression-free survival rate (biological progression and/or clinical progression) in patients with advanced prostate cancer treated with androgen ablation with vs without docetaxel. Secondary - Compare the overall survival of patients treated with these regimens. - Compare the time to treatment failure in patients treated ...
