Significant pain reduction for post-shingles patients

rease of 33 percent or more, compared to 8 percent in the control group. Pain decreases in the active group were noted on the first day after the procedure and remained stable throughout the four-week observation period. As a purely local treatment without the potential for systemic side effects, high-concentration capsaicin patches could be a very effective and safe treatment alternative for patients suffering from postherpetic neuralgia, said Thorsten von Stein, M.D., Ph.D., Vice President of Clinical Development at NeurogesX, Inc., the company that sponsored the multi-center study.

Further Studies in Pain Treatment
NeurogesX said it will begin pivotal studies of NGX-4010 in April 2003. The company is also in the process of developing additional medicines for other pain syndromes, including the pain caused by tissue injury.
