Postherpetic Neuralgia Understanding

Postherpetic Neuralgia: Overview

Post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN) is defined as a chronic neuropathic pain that persists for three or more months following acute Herpes zoster (shingles) infection. It is a severe painful secondary phase, which may develop three to six months after the resolution of initial phase of Herpes zoster (HZ) infection. Pain has a dermatomal distribution and is confined to same dermatome as the rash. Herpes zoster infection results from activation of the varicella zoster virus (VZV) which remains latent in dorsal root ganglia since the first infection of chickenpox (varicella). Pain frequently precedes Herpes zoster infection (pre-herpetic neuralgia), and outlasts the herpetic rash by some weeks. It is more common in older individuals (develops in up to 75% of patients over 70 years of age) and is less common in individuals younger than fifty years of age. Post-herpetic neuralgia subsides eventually on its own. However, it may make patients suffer for years and may leave a band of anaesthetic skin. It may lead to muscle weakness as well, if it affects major motor nerve. Post-herpetic neuralgia is associated with persistent and, very often, refractory neuropathic pain. The neuralgia is excruciating with superimposed lancinating paresthesias. Pain may be constant or intermittent, aggravated by minor stimulus (allodynia) such as heat or touch, and is worse at night. The agony of pain leads to insomnia, anorexia, and changes in mood (severe depression).

Postherpetic Neuralgia Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Postherpetic Neuralgia report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.


Postherpetic Neuralgia Emerging Drugs


HSK16149: Haisco Pharmaceutical Group

HSK16149 is being developed by Haisco Pharmaceutical Group to treat Postherpetic Neuralgia. The company is currently conducting a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 12-week, Phase III study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of HSK16149 capsules in chinease patients with Postherpetic Neuralgia.


LX9211: Lexicon Pharmaceuticals

LX9211 is an orally-delivered small molecule compound that we are developing as a treatment for neuropathic pain. Scientists identified the target of LX9211, adapter-associated kinase 1, or AAK1, in a target discovery efforts based on their discovery that mice lacking AAK1 exhibited increased resistance to induced neuropathic pain in preclinical models. LX9211 and another development candidate were discovered by scientists working within Lexicon’s drug discovery alliance with Bristol-Myers Squibb from which Lexicon hold exclusive development and commercialization rights. Currently, it is in Phase II stage of clinical trial evaluation to treat Postherpetic Neuralgia.
