NYU Bluestone Center Researchers Discover That Skin Color Affects Skin Sensitivity to Heat and Mechanical Stimuli

Researchers at the Bluestone Center for Clinical Research at NYU Dentistry have identified a novel molecular mechanism which explains why dark-skinned and light-skinned people respond differently to heat and mechanical stimulation.

Consciousness Depends on Tubulin Vibrations Inside Neurons, Anesthesia Study Suggests

Anesthetic gases selectively block consciousness, sparing non-conscious brain activities. Thus the specific mechanism of anesthetic action could reveal how the brain produces consciousness.

Pain Severity Leading Predictor of Prolonged Opioid Use After Surgery

New research reported in The Journal of Pain shows the strongest predictive factors for prolonged opioid use after a traumatic musculoskeletal injury and surgery are pain severity and a poor sense of control over pain.

Millennials Prefer Healthy Habits, Less Likely to Choose Opioids to Manage Pain

Known for spending their work weeks hunched over their laptops and their weekends taking spin classes or playing video games, Millennials are prone to experiencing pain. However, a recent survey by the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) reports that this generation is more likely to manage their pain in a natural way, without using opioids. Additional findings from the survey are in the news release below.

The Understudied Consequences of Peripheral Neuropathy after Chemotherapy

In two papers published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute researchers from UC Davis, UCLA and other institutions have found that peripheral neuropathy, which causes pain, numbness, and tingling in hands and/or feet, can bother early-stage breast cancer patients years after completing chemotherapy. In addition, a systematic literature review found only a handful of studies that tracked long-term peripheral neuropathy, leaving little data for patients and clinicians to make informed decisions.

An exploration of the latest understanding of the complex mechanisms behind OA pain offers new possibilities and potential treatment targets for osteoarthritis (OA) pain. New areas of research discussed include the use of combination therapies and the development of biomarkers to target effective pain treatment.

Given the Choice, Zebrafish Willingly Dose Themselves with Opioids

Researchers at University of Utah Health devised a system that allowed zebrafish to self-administer doses of hydrocodone, an opioid commonly prescribed to people for pain, to study drug dependency.

To Reduce Postoperative Pain, Consider Sleep — and Caffeine

A new preclinical study found that a brief period of extended wakefulness before surgery enhances pain and prolongs recovery time after surgery. Caffeine administration helped to reduce the harmful effects of sleep loss on subsequent surgical pain.
