FDA chief defends Zohydro approval as US states rebel

Margaret Hamburg, commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration, has defended her agency’s decision to approve the potent long acting opioid Zohydro ER, arguing that the FDA had to balance the risks of opioid prescription abuse with “the very real medical needs of the estimated 100 million Americans living with severe chronic pain or coping with pain at the end of life, which is also a major public health problem in this country.”

Transcranial direct current brain stimulation for chronic pain

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a form of non-invasive brain stimulation that delivers low intensity direct current stimulation to the brain through electrodes applied to the skin over the target area. It has been found to modulate cortical excitability at the target site leading some researchers to investigate it as a possible treatment for chronic pain and a host of other conditions. tDCS has clear appeal; it is cheap, relatively easy to use, and seems to be safe. In a linked article, Luedtke and colleagues (doi:10.1136/bmj.h1640) report the results of a randomised controlled trial of transcranial direct current stimulation for chronic low back pain.1
