    First Results For Phase IIa Data Of UCB's Lacosamide For Treatment Of Fibromyalgia.

    (Read the article at the site below):

    Lacosamide has a dual mode of action and is the first agent of its kind to be clinically studied for the treatment of fibromyalgia.

    It selectively enhances slow inactivation of sodium channels and interacts with the neuroplasticity-relevant target - collapsin-response mediator protein-2 (CRMP-2).

    Lacosamide has been filed with the US FDA and the EMEA for the treatment of epilepsy and diabetic neuropathic pain.

    Another great article!!!

    If you look to the right of the article, there is a link that leads to a study that explains a way to reduce the pain of mammagrams.

    Thanks, GA
