that there is evidence to support the use of the following orally administered therapies: tricyclic antidepressants, "strong" opioids, gabapentin, tramadol, and pregabalin. Topical therapies associated with efficacy were lidocaine 5% patch and capsaicin. Finally, a single study of spinal intrathecal administration of lidocaine and methyl prednisolone demonstrated efficacy, although this has yet to be replicated. Data suggest that the following therapies are not associated with efficacy in PHN: certain NMDA receptor (...) . However, many of the trials that demonstrated a lack of efficacy represented comparatively low numbers of patient episodes or were single-dose studies, so it may be appropriate to regard such interventions as "not yet adequately tested" rather than demonstrating "no evidence of efficacy." Topical aspirin/diethyl ether has not been adequately tested.The evidence base supports the oral use of tricyclic antidepressants, certain opioids, and gabapentinoids in PHN.

704. Use of bulleyaconitine a as an adjuvant for prolonged cutaneous analgesia in the rat. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Use of bulleyaconitine a as an adjuvant for prolonged cutaneous analgesia in the rat. Bulleyaconitine A (BLA) is an analgesic and antiinflammatory drug isolated from Aconitum plants. BLA has several potential targets, including voltage-gated Na+ channels. We tested whether BLA elicited long-lasting cutaneous analgesia, when co-injected with lidocaine and epinephrine, as a model for prolonged infiltration anesthesia.The local anesthetic properties of BLA were assessed by the patch-clamp (...) . However, when stimulated at 2 Hz for 1000 pulses, their peak Na+ currents were >90% reduced by BLA. This use-dependent inhibition was not significantly reversed after 15-min washing. Complete nociceptive blockade after injection of lidocaine (0.5%)/epinephrine (1:200,000) lasted for approximately 1 h in rats; full recovery occurred after approximately 6 h. Co-injection of 0.125 mM BLA with lidocaine/epinephrine increased the duration of complete nociceptive blockade to 24 h. Full recovery occurred

hours with evaluation up to 72 hours was performed. Three patients presented with a history of localized edema after dental anesthesia. All had negative lidocaine and mepivacaine testing as well as negative lidocaine challenge on evaluation at 1 hour. The first patient, who had previously reacted to EMLA, reacted to both lidocaine and mepivacaine patch testing and challenge, with delayed swelling at 24 and 48 hours after challenge. This patient subsequently tolerated the ester anesthetic (...) chloroprocaine. Two other patients had strong histories of contact dermatitis. Patch testing and challenge with lidocaine was negative, but strong reactions were found to benzocaine on patch testing. Patients undergoing local anesthetic testing should be screened historically for features and risk factors associated with type IV reactions. This should be considered in patients who react to multiple amide anesthetics, who have delayed swelling, or who have a history of severe contact dermatitis. We confirm

709. Effects of ifenprodil on voltage-gated tetrodotoxin-resistant Na+ channels in rat sensory neurons. (Abstract)

, recordings of whole-cell membrane currents being made using patch-clamp technique.Both drugs blocked tetrodotoxin-resistant Na+ currents dose dependently, their half-maximal inhibitory concentrations being 145+/-12.1 micromol (ketamine) and 2.6+/-0.95 micromol (ifenprodil). Ifenprodil shifted the inactivation curve for tetrodotoxin-resistant Na+ channels in the hyperpolarizing direction and shifted the activation curve in the depolarizing direction. Use-dependent blockade of tetrodotoxin-resistant Na (...) + channels was more marked with ifenprodil than with ketamine. When paired with lidocaine, these drugs produced similar additive inhibitions of tetrodotoxin-resistant Na+ channel activity.The observed suppressive effects on tetrodotoxin-resistant Na+ channel activity may, at least in part, underlie the antinociceptive effects of these N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor antagonists.

710. Effects of alpha2-adrenoceptor agonists on tetrodotoxin-resistant Na+ channels in rat dorsal root ganglion neurons. (Abstract)

the effects of alpha2-adrenoceptor agonists on tetrodotoxin-resistant Na+ currents.Using the whole-cell patch-clamp technique, we recorded tetrodotoxin-resistant Na+ currents from rat dorsal root ganglion neurons.Both clonidine and dexmedetomidine reduced the peak amplitude of the tetrodotoxin-resistant Na+ current concentration- and use-dependently. The concentration required for a half-maximal effect was significantly lower for dexmedetomidine (58.0 +/- 10.2 micromol) than for clonidine (257.2 +/- 30.9 (...) micromol) at holding potential -70 mV. The current inhibitions induced by these agonists were not prevented by 1 micromol yohimbine, an alpha2-adrenoceptor antagonist. Both clonidine and dexmedetomidine shifted the inactivation curve for the tetrodotoxin-resistant Na+ current in the hyperpolarizing direction. The combinations clonidine with lidocaine and dexmedetomidine with lidocaine produced an additive blockade-type interaction on the tetrodotoxin-resistant Na+ current.The results suggest

block model. Further, the mechanism of possible synergy between LAs and MgSO(4) was investigated in whole-cell mode patch-clamp experiments.Sciatic nerves were exposed to 2%/73.9 mM lidocaine, 0.25%/7.7 mM bupivacaine, and 0.5%/15.4 mM ropivacaine, with or without addition of 1.25%, 2.5%, or 5% MgSO(4)/50.7 mM, and nerve block characteristics were assessed. To elucidate the LA-MgSO(4) interaction, voltage-dependent inactivation curves were determined in cultured rat GH(3) cells that expressed (...) neuronal Na(+) channels.Unexpectedly, the addition of MgSO(4) overall significantly shortened the duration of block by lidocaine, bupivacaine, and ropivacaine. The steady-state inactivation of Na(+) channels in the presence of 300 muM lidocaine was almost unchanged by the addition of 10 mM MgSO(4), indicating that MgSO(4) does not affect the potency of lidocaine toward the inactivated Na(+) channel.MgSO(4) coadministered with amide-type LAs shortened the duration of sciatic-nerve block in rats

Atrium-selective sodium channel block as a strategy for suppression of atrial fibrillation: differences in sodium channel inactivation between atria and ventricles and the role of ranolazine. The development of selective atrial antiarrhythmic agents is a current strategy for suppression of atrial fibrillation (AF).Whole-cell patch clamp techniques were used to evaluate inactivation of peak sodium channel current (I(Na)) in myocytes isolated from canine atria and ventricles (...) . The electrophysiological effects of therapeutic concentrations of ranolazine (1 to 10 micromol/L) and lidocaine (2.1 to 21 micromol/L) were evaluated in canine isolated coronary-perfused atrial and ventricular preparations. Half-inactivation voltage of I(Na) was approximately 15 mV more negative in atrial versus ventricular cells under control conditions; this difference increased after exposure to ranolazine. Ranolazine produced a marked use-dependent depression of sodium channel parameters, including the maximum

muscles. TASK-2, cloned from murine intestinal muscles, resulted in a pH-sensitive, time-dependent, non-inactivating K+ conductance with slow activation kinetics. A similar conductance was found in native intestinal myocytes using whole-cell patch-clamp conditions. The pH-sensitive current was blocked by local anaesthetics. Lidocaine, bupivacaine and acidic pH depolarized circular muscle cells in intact muscles and decreased amplitude and frequency of slow waves. The effects of lidocaine were (...) not blocked by tetraethylammonium chloride, 4-aminopyridine, glibenclamide, apamin or MK-499. However, depolarization by acidic pH was abolished by pre-treatment with lidocaine, suggesting that lidocaine-sensitive K+ channels were responsible for pH-sensitive changes in membrane potential. The kinetics of activation, sensitivity to pH, and pharmacology of the conductance in intestinal myocytes and the expression of TASK-1 and TASK-2 in these cells suggest that the pH-sensitive background conductance

Cu2+(1,10 phenanthroline)3 is an open-channel blocker of the human skeletal muscle sodium channel The formation of disulfide bridges is a classical approach used to study the mobility, proximity and distances of residues in a variety of proteins, including ligand- and voltage-gated ion channels. We performed patch-clamp studies to investigate the interaction of a pair of cysteines introduced into the human skeletal muscle voltage-gated Na+ channel (hNa(v)1.4) using the oxidation catalyst, Cu2 (...) was capable of blocking Na+ channels in the absence of Cu2+ ions. Our results indicate a use- and voltage-dependent binding and unbinding of CuPhen, reminiscent of the lidocaine quaternary derivative QX-314 and the neurotoxin batrachotoxin. Care should be taken when using CuPhen as an oxidizing reagent in cross-linking experiments, since it may directly affect channel activity. Our results identify CuPhen (and phenantroline) as a novel use-dependent inhibitor of Na+ channels, a mechanism that is shared

in addition to non-pharmacological treatments. Topical NSAIDs should be considered in the treatment of patients with chronic pain from musculoskeletal conditions, particularly for patients who cannot tolerate oral NSAIDs.

but should not be used with cryotherapy. Lidocaine 1% is the most commonly used local anaesthetic and it can be used for these procedures. It is most conveniently administered using a dental syringe with a fine dental needle and cartridges made for the syringe. A lidocaine/adrenaline (epinephrine) mixture is often used. This prolongs the duration of action and increases the total dose that can be used; however, its greatest asset is that it induces vasoconstriction and so reduces bleeding. It must (...) not be used on fingers, toes or the penis. If analgesia is required on a mucous membrane it is possible to apply lidocaine directly via a piece of gauze and this numbs the surface so that injection is less painful. It does not cross the horny barrier of keratinised epithelium in the skin and so is of no use to numb skin. For topical use, a 2% or 4% solution is acceptable but otherwise a maximum of 1% is recommended. Remember that after injection of local anaesthetic it is necessary to allow a few minutes
