Why the Patient decided to undergo the CRPS Treatment in Italy

The patient’s father had been looking online for treatments when he came by our website and learned about Neridronate. We had a call with both the patient and his father, after which they decided to move forward with the treatment. 

Medical treatment the Patient underwent in Italy

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a severely painful and disabling disease for which a multitude of therapeutic interventions have been proposed. In the past two decades, only Bisphosphonates gained credibility. In recent years, more convincing evidence has become available on the use of Parenteral Neridronate. Since 2014, this drug is registered and marketed in Italy for the treatment of CRPS. To date, the only therapeutic schedule that is recognized to be able to confer benefit is the intravenous (IV) administration of 100 mg given 4 times.

4 neridronate infusions (100mg, I.v. in saline Solution 0,9% 250 ml)

Follow up

OCTOBER 2022 (3 months after Neridronate treatment): Patient feels the sensitivity has improved drastically and his pain levels are getting lower week by week.

DECEMBER 2022 (4 months after Neridronate treatment): Patient reports 90% disappearance of all symptoms.

OCTOBER 2023 (more than a year after Neridronate treatment): The patient has called us for his Patient Manager’s birthday! He mentions being in full remission in the call, which we couldn’t be happier about.

Conclusion

Getting access to the treatment in the first year after the CRPS onset is always the best of choices. As shown in the original study, and in this particular case of a 20 years old patient, it very often lead to a full remission of all symptoms.
