141. Effect of gabapentin on nausea induced by chemotherapy in patients with breast cancer. (Abstract)

Effect of gabapentin on nausea induced by chemotherapy in patients with breast cancer. In an anecdotal report, complete resolution of chemotherapy-induced nausea was seen in a patient with breast cancer, after she was placed on the anticonvulsant gabapentin. On this basis, we did an open-label study in which oral gabapentin 300 mg thrice daily was given for every other chemotherapy treatment in nine patients with breast cancer. Six of the nine reported at least a three-point improvement in peak (...) delayed nausea (on an eight-point nausea scale), and three patients had complete resolution of nausea when taking gabapentin. This preliminary evidence shows that gabapentin might have a role in treatment of chemotherapy-induced nausea.

142. Gabapentin for neuropathic pain: systematic review of controlled and uncontrolled literature. (Abstract)

Gabapentin for neuropathic pain: systematic review of controlled and uncontrolled literature. To assess the efficacy/effectiveness and side effects of gabapentin for the treatment of neuropathic pain.Systematic review of the literature.Extensive search of several electronic databases located both controlled and uncontrolled studies. Efficacy was assessed through meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs), whereas the effectiveness of gabapentin in uncontrolled studies was assessed via (...) a novel system of dichotomous classification of "bad" versus "good" results.Thirty-five papers involving 727 patients with multiple neuropathic pain conditions met the inclusion criteria. The meta-analysis of the 2 high-quality, placebo-controlled RCTs showed positive effect of gabapentin in diabetic neuropathy and post-herpetic neuralgia. The addition of 2 low-quality, placebo-controlled RCTs did not alter the magnitude or direction of observed effect. The uncontrolled studies demonstrated positive

144. Gabapentin for drug-resistant partial epilepsy. (Abstract)

Gabapentin for drug-resistant partial epilepsy. The majority of epileptic patients have a good prognosis and their seizures can be well controlled with the use of a single antiepileptic agent, but up to 30% develop refractory epilepsy, especially those with partial seizures. In this review we summarise the current evidence regarding a new antiepileptic drug, gabapentin, when used as an add-on treatment for drug-resistant partial epilepsyTo evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of gabapentin (...) when used as an add-on treatment for patients with drug-resistant partial epilepsy.We searched the Cochrane Epilepsy Group trial register, the Cochrane Controlled Trials Register of The Cochrane Library Issue 4, 1998.

145. Gabapentin for the symptomatic treatment of painful neuropathy in patients with diabetes mellitus: a randomized controlled trial. (Abstract)

Gabapentin for the symptomatic treatment of painful neuropathy in patients with diabetes mellitus: a randomized controlled trial. Pain is the most disturbing symptom of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. As many as 45% of patients with diabetes mellitus develop peripheral neuropathies.To evaluate the effect of gabapentin monotherapy on pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy.Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 8-week trial conducted between July 1996 and March 1997.Outpatient (...) Pain Questionnaire scores, Patient Global Impression of Change and Clinical Global Impression of Change, the Short Form-36 Quality of Life Questionnaire scores, and the Profile of Mood States results.Eighty-four patients received gabapentin and 70 (83%) completed the study; 81 received placebo and 65 (80%) completed the study. By intent-to-treat analysis, gabapentin-treated patients' mean daily pain score at the study end point (baseline, 6.4; end point, 3.9; n = 82) was significantly lower (P<.001

Gabapentin for the treatment of postherpetic neuralgia: a randomized controlled trial. Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) is a syndrome of often intractable neuropathic pain following herpes zoster (shingles) that eludes effective treatment in many patients.To determine the efficacy and safety of the anticonvulsant drug gabapentin in reducing PHN pain.Multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel design, 8-week trial conducted from August 1996 through July 1997.Sixteen US (...) outpatient clinical centers.A total of 229 subjects were randomized.A 4-week titration period to a maximum dosage of 3600 mg/d of gabapentin or matching placebo. Treatment was maintained for another 4 weeks at the maximum tolerated dose.

147. A cost minimization study comparing vigabatrin, lamotrigine and gabapentin for the treatment of intractable partial epilepsy

A cost minimization study comparing vigabatrin, lamotrigine and gabapentin for the treatment of intractable partial epilepsy A cost minimization study comparing vigabatrin, lamotrigine and gabapentin for the treatment of intractable partial epilepsy A cost minimization study comparing vigabatrin, lamotrigine and gabapentin for the treatment of intractable partial epilepsy Hughes D, Cockerell O C Record Status This is a critical abstract of an economic evaluation that meets the criteria (...) . Results of the review In the absence of head to head trials, there was no evidence that the efficacy of the three drugs differed significantly. On this basis, the authors decided to conduct a cost minimization study. The side effects of the three drugs are reported in terms of incidence, the aim being to estimate the resulting level of health service utilisation. For example, 9-15% of patients on lamotrigine, 6-15% of patients on vigabatrin and 3-7% of patients on gabapentin suffer from major side

148. Gabapentin in partial epilepsy. UK Gabapentin Study Group. (Abstract)

Gabapentin in partial epilepsy. UK Gabapentin Study Group. Gabapentin is an analogue of gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) which has anticonvulsant properties in animals. In a multicentre, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study of 1200 mg/day gabapentin as additional therapy in 127 patients with drug-resistant partial epilepsy, 25% of patients who received gabapentin had the number of partial seizures at least halved, compared with 9.8% of patients given placebo. The median (...) reduction in partial seizure frequency during 12 weeks' treatment was 29.2% with gabapentin compared with 12.5% with placebo. The mean adjusted response ratio for gabapentin (-0.192) was significantly better than the ratio of -0.060 for placebo by analysis of variance. 62% of patients who received gabapentin reported mostly mild or moderate adverse effects compared with 41% on placebo; no interactions were observed between gabapentin and other standard anticonvulsants. Gabapentin is an effective
