Abstract

Ketamine hydrochloride is used as an adjuvant treatment for cancer-related neuropathic pain, but evidence of its effectiveness is limited.1 Findings of a large trial investigating the use of ketamine for general cancer pain were negative, but the population studied did not specifically have neuropathic pain. A randomized trial of oral ketamine for cancer-related neuropathic pain has been called for, and the present trial addresses that need.
