Up-to-date List of Acupan Medical Research Studies

What Research is Being Done?

A clinical study involves research using human volunteers (also called participants) that is intended to add to medical knowledge. There are two main types of clinical studies: clinical trials (also called interventional studies) and observational studies. Following list includes both interventional and observational studies.

Latest Acupan Medical Research Studies

Rank Status Study
1 Recruiting The Analgesic Effect of Nefopam on the Fentanyl Based PCA (Patient-controlled Analgesia) After Lumbar Spinal Surgery
Condition: Lumbar Spinal Stenisis or Lumbar Herniated Intervertebral Disc
Intervention: Drug: nefopam
Outcome Measure: The additional analgesic effect of nefopam on the fentanyl based PCA after lumbar spinal surgery

Outcome Measure: Total intravenous morphine consumption (mg)

These studies may lead to new treatments and are adding insight into Acupan etiology and treatment.

A major focus of Acupan research is the development of new drugs and other treatment options. Studies seek to identify new drugs to treat various related disorders and to find safer, more effective doses for medications already being used. Other research is aimed at identifying receptors or drug targets.
