    Jesper Dirks
    Laboratory of Pain Physiology, Multidisciplinary Pain Center, Herlev University Hospital, Herlev, Denmark
    J Pain 4:122-8. 2003
    ..There was no synergistic or additive effect between heat and capsaicin in inducing cutaneous sensitization. Rekindling seems to be the important factor in maintaining stable and long-lasting cutaneous sensitization...
  2. ncbi request reprint Capsaicin evoked pain and allodynia in post-herpetic neuralgia
    K L Petersen
    Department of Neurology, UCSF Pain Clinical Research Center, University of California, San Francisco, 94115, USA
    Pain 88:125-33. 2000
    ..These observations support the hypothesis that allodynia in some PHN patients is a form of chronic secondary hyperalgesia maintained by input from intact and possibly 'irritable' primary afferent nociceptors to a sensitized CNS...

    K L Petersen
    Pain Clinical Research Center, Department of Neurology, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, California 94115, USA
    Anesthesiology 94:15-20. 2001

    Karin L Petersen
    Department of Neurology, UCSF Pain Clinical Research Center, University of California San Francisco, 1701 Divisadero Street, Suite 480, San Francisco, CA 94115, USA
    Pain 98:119-26. 2002
    ..The results may explain the anatomical basis of the capsaicin-response test and have implications for our understanding of clinical mechanisms underlying PHN pain...

    UCSF Pain Clinical Research Center, Department of Neurology, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94115, USA
    Pain 150:83-92. 2010
    ..Sensory recovery proceeded at the same rate in eventual pain-free and eventual PHN subjects and is not a requirement for pain resolution. Early interventions that reduce neural injury or enhance recovery should be of benefit...

    Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94143 0648, USA
    Neurology 67:1251-3. 2006
    ..Postoperative delirium occurred in 5/12 patients (42%) who received placebo vs 0/9 patients who received gabapentin, p = 0.045. The reduction in delirium appears to be secondary to the opioid-sparing effect of gabapentin...
