Clinical Trials Related to Lidoderm (Lidocaine Patch)

Tumescent Lidocaine Maximum Safe mg/kg Dosage [Enrolling by invitation]
This pharmacokinetic clinical trial is a dose ranging study of lidocaine in tumescent local anesthesia. The goal is to understand the absorption pharmacokinetic of tumescent lidocaine and to determine an objective (statistical) estimate of the maximum safe mg/kg dosage of lidocaine in tumescent local anesthesia without liposuction.

Pilot Study of the Efficacy and Safety of Lidoderm Patch in the Treatment of Low Back Pain [Completed]
Patients with moderate to severe chronic Low Back Pain (LBP) despite current analgesic treatment participated in a Phase IV clinical trial to evaluate the analgesic efficacy of the lidocaine patch 5% compared to placebo in treating moderate to severe chronic LBP.

Patients with postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), diabetic neuropathy (DN), complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), carpal tunnel syndrome, HIV neuropathy, idiopathic sensory neuropathy, or other peripheral neuropathy participated in a Phase IV clinical trial to assess the comparative efficacy and safety of Lidoderm monotherapy versus gabapentin monotherapy in treating a diverse group of peripheral neuropathic pain patients.

Efficacy and Safety of the Lidoderm Patch Applied to Patients With Osteoarthritis of the Knee [Completed]
Patients with knee pain due to Osteoarthritis (OA) experiencing sub-optimal pain relief from their current analgesic regimen will participate in a pilot clinical trial to evaluate the effectiveness and tolerability of the Lidoderm Patch compared with placebo in treating knee pain from OA.

Lidocaine Infusion as a Treatment for Cocaine Relapse and Craving [Recruiting]
We propose that the systemic administration of lidocaine following the induction of cue-induced craving, relative to saline plus cue-induced craving or lidocaine without cue-induced craving, will block the reconsolidation of cue memories. This will lead to a reduction in cue-induced craving upon repeated testing as well as subsequent cocaine use and basal craving.
