Methods for chronic pain management and treatment using hcg

A gonadotropin is administered within a surprisingly effective narrow range for the purpose of treating chronic pain or other central sensitization sequelae. In one aspect, a recipient is provided with at least one of human chorionic gonadotropin (uHCG and/or rHCG), a pharmaceutically active HCG analogue, and a pharmaceutically active metabolite of the HCG or analogue at a dosage selected to provide, or be equivalent to, a human subcutaneous dosage of between 120 IU/day and 170 IU/day of HCG, and more preferably between 140 IU/day and 160 IU/day of HCG. A kit is also described, which includes a supply of the HCG-related drug, a delivery device, and a label that identifies chronic pain or central sensitization as an indication of the drug.

This application is a continuation-in-part of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 13/211,101 filed Aug. 16, 2011 and also claims the benefit of priority to U.S. Provisional Application No. 61/475,908, filed Apr. 15, 2011, each of which is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.


The field of the invention is chronic pain management, and more specifically to administration of specific low doses of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG).


An ongoing and pervasive problem in the medical community is treating patients with chronic pain syndromes. It is well recognized today that chronic pain is fundamentally different from acute pain, also referred to as nociceptive pain, which pain results from a mechanical, chemical, metabolic or inflammatory insult.

It has been recognized by some that since the mechanisms and pathways for chronic and acute pain are physiologically different, they require different approaches for treatment. Unfortunately, many in the medical community continue to treat patients suffering from chronic pain syndromes with agents designed to address acute nociceptive pain pathways. Such methods are often fraught with toxicity and dependence issues, and in the end are generally unsatisfactory in ending pain and/or improving quality of life. A new diagnostic paradigm and treatment protocol is therefore needed to address chronic pain.

Central sensitization is a newly recognized diagnostic entity that underlies a broad range of phenotypic syndromes, including various chronic pain and mood disorders. As used herein, central sensitization means an abnormal state of functioning of the neurons and circuitry of the central pain intensity, perception and modulation systems; due to synaptic, chemical, functional and/or structural changes, in which pain is no longer coupled, as acute nociceptive pain is, to particular peripheral stimuli. Instead, the central nervous system (CNS) initiates, maintains and contributes to the generation of pain hypersesensitivity and perception, absent a peripheral stimulus. As used herein, therefore chronic pain and central sensitization represent an overlapping constellation of diagnostic conditions and syndromes.

The present inventors consider the following to be a non-exhaustive listing of conditions associated with (causative or resulting from) central sensitization, each of which is thought to be applicable to humans or other vertebrates.

1. Autonomic neuropathies 2. Chronic back pain 3. Chronic joint pain associated metabolic neuropathy 4. Chronic joint pain associated with inflammation

5. Fibromyalgia

6. Irritable bowel syndrome

7. Migraine

8. Neuropathic pain

9. Osteoarthritis

10. Post Herpetic neuralgia 11. Post surgical pain syndromes

12. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Pain Syndrome
