It is to be expected that the 3rd East-European Pain Congress will become quite a big pain-related meeting in Eastern Europe. The theme of the 2018 Global Year for Excellence in Pain Education is “Bridging the gap between knowledge and practice.” It is in this context that Professor Keppel Hesselink, MD and David Kopsky, MD will be amongst the key speakers and present a number of latest findings related to the project of repurposing phenytoin as a cream for the treatment of peripheral neuropathic pain.
Currently planned is one plenary session on June 8th presenting a general overview of the topic: ‘new developments in topical treatment of peripheral neuropathic pain from the perspective of repositioned drugs’
During the topical symposium on June 8th, dedicated to the more general topic: ‘topical treatment in peripheral neuropathic pain’ David tentatively will discuss: ‘enrichment designs in topical analgesic treatment, the role of a single blind response test in research and daily practice’. Jan will present: ‘the role of topical phenytoin formulations in the treatment of peripheral neuropathic pain.’
