Intravenous Ketamine for Cancer Pain Management Including Flares During the COVID-19 Pandemic: A Retrospective Study.


Cancer-related neuropathic pain (CNP) affects an increasing proportion of cancer patients given improved survival but remains difficult to treat. There are no studies on an extended intravenous (IV) ketamine protocol and its synergies with common neuropathy treatments to treat CNP. This study aims to (1) evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an IV ketamine protocol to treat refractory CNP and (2) uncover synergies between ketamine and common neuropathy treatments.
