Bayesian Modeling Of The Placebo Response In Neuropathic Pain

August 7, 2017

In analgesia randomized clinical trials (RCTs), the magnitude and the variability of the placebo response have a negative influence when testing the statistically significant superiority of active compounds compared to placebo.

Do Environmental Parameters Influence The Prediction Of The Placebo Response?

This proof-of-concept study on peripheral neuropathic pain patients investigates the potential influence
of the investigator on the placebo response in RCTs while manipulating different variables, including
patient expectation, conditioning and prior experiences, observational and social learning.
