      Less pain, more gain?

      "Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy is a major side-effect of chemotherapy and current ways to manage the pain are not terribly effective. Studying why chemotherapy drugs cause pain in some patients more than others might help doctors to improve treatment plans, and could even be used to re-assess drugs that had previously failed in clinical trials."

      Extreme doses of intravenous methadone for severe pain in two children with cancer.

      Pediatr Blood Cancer. 2015 Jan 13;

      Abstract We describe the effect and side effects in two children with cancer treated with intravenous methadone in extreme doses (>10 mg/kg/day) due to vincristine-induced neuropathy where surgical procedures provoked severe neuropathic pain. The maximum daily dose was 33 and 25 mg/kg/day.

      Scientists investigate sound waves for burning away cancer pain

      "The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) team hopes that its new high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) approach could provide an effective and non-invasive alternative for treating pain when radiation therapy is no longer an option.  HIFU works by concentrating ultrasound energy precisely on a target to destroy tissue with heat. The heat destroys the nerve tissue in the bone surrounding the tumor but leaves the neighboring tissue unharmed."
