The study included 12 patients suffering from intractable pain
Results from a small study of intractable pain patients being treated with the human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) hormone reported that they had experienced pain free hours in the past month. These results were presented today at a poster session at the American Academy of Pain Medicine’s 27th Annual Meeting.
Forest Tennant MD PhD, of the Veract Intractable Pain Clinic in West Covina, California, presented the results. The study included 12 patients suffering from intractable pain, which is a term that has come out of the legislative and legal system and refers to a group of patients that are the most serious of pain patients. These patients have severe and constant pain, 24-hours a day, which causes many to be bed bound and house bound.
