Placebo and Pain

The placebo effect continues to fascinate scientists, scholars, and clinicians, resulting in an impressive amount of research, mainly in the field of pain. While recent experimental and clinical studies have unraveled salient aspects of the neurobiological substrates and clinical relevance of pain and placebo analgesia, an authoritative source remained lacking until now. By presenting and integrating a broad range of research, Placebo and Pain enhances readers’ knowledge about placebo and nocebo effects, reexamines the methodology of clinical trials, and improves the therapeutic approaches for patients suffering from pain. Review for Placebo and Pain: “This ambitious book is the first comprehensive and unified presentation of the placebo and nocebo phenomena in the area of pain. Written by the international leading experts in the field, the book provides an accurate up-to-date [work] on placebo and pain dealing with current perspectives and future challenging issues. --Ted Kaptchuk, Associate Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School Contains historical aspects of the placebo effect Discusses biological and psychological mechanisms of placebo analgesic responses Reviews implications of the placebo effect for clinical research and pain management Includes methodological and ethical aspects of the placebo effect

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is frequently conceptualized as ‘nothing but’ placebo. I will argue, and provide the evidence in this chapter, that, apart from potential specific effects, CAM is a clever way of inducing generic self-healing effects. Jerome D Frank's model serves to conceptualize this. CAM practitioners normally establish good relationships and take time to listen to their patients. They have very elaborate rituals to enact those effects. They demonstrate their prowess and they provide alternative explanatory models that

In this chapter we discuss the various aspects of the clinical applications of placebo effects. In clinical studies, a placebo intervention is often nearly as potent as the effects of the verum that is applied, and placebo effects can have enduring positive consequences. Most research has focused on healthy humans and it is not clear whether the results reported in these people can be transferred to clinical populations. Initial studies on this topic have suggested that patients may profit more

Considerable progress has been made in our understanding of the neurochemistry of placebo effects and there is now compelling experimental evidence that different neuronal networks are responsible for different types of expectation-induced placebo effects. These include both opioid and nonopioid systems such as endocannabinoids and cholecystokinin (CCK). In general, what has emerged over the past few years is that the endogenous opioids and endocannabinoids are involved in placebo analgesia in different circumstances whereas CCK plays a key role in the

In this paper I argue against continued use of the terms ‘placebo effect’ and ‘placebo response’. I cite a broad range of evidence to indicate that such events are not caused by ‘placebos’ but by their meanings, what they represent to patients, clinicians, families, and communities.

There is good evidence that placebo and nocebo responses reflect more than a psychologic reappraisal of pain perception. In fact, pain perception is the endpoint of several endogenous pain inhibitory and facilitatory mechanisms that trigger descending pain modulation mechanisms to the spinal cord. Measuring the ability of placebo and nocebo to act on these mechanisms will demonstrate that their effects are not only a reinterpretation of higher centers of the same nociceptive signal, but are acting at the source of

Studies of placebo analgesia necessarily involve the induction and reporting of pain. The pain report is the basic dependent variable in many studies of placebo analgesia, and reported pain should ideally reflect the pain experience. However, the pain report is subject to a number of different influences that threaten the internal validity of research on pain and, consequently, placebo analgesia. The study of placebo analgesia introduces several other issues, in terms of the design of studies that researchers must deal

Neuroscience of Pain, Stress, and Emotion: Psychological and Clinical Implications presents updated research on stress, pain, and emotion, all key research areas within both basic and clinical neuroscience. Improved research understanding of their interaction is ultimately necessary if clinicians and those working in the field of psychosomatic medicine are to alleviate patient suffering. This volume offers broad coverage of that interaction, with chapters written by major researchers in the field. After reviewing the neuroscience of pain and stress, the contents

Placebo responses effects are not merely a psychological, but a complex psycho-neuro-biological process that requires activation of distinct brain areas. This book discusses current research and projects on the involved brain circuitry and neurotransmitter systems. Specific chapters cover such topics as pharmacological conditioning of the endocrine and immune system,

Due to the recent explosion of placebo research at many levels the Editors believe that a volume on Placebo would be a good addition to the Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology series. In particular, this volume will be built up on a meeting on Placebo which will be held in Tuebingen (Germany) in January 2013, and where the most prominent researchers in this field will present and exchange their ideas.

There is a vast literature on what has often been called "the doctor-patient relationship", "patient-provider interaction", "therapist-patient encounter", and such like. However, it is thanks to recent advances within neuroscience, that we have now found ourselves in a much better position to be able to describe and discuss the biological mechanisms that underlie the doctor-patient relationship. The concept of this revolutionary new book is that, froma neuroscientific perspective, the doctor-patient relationship can be subdivided into at least four steps: feeling
