Why the Patient decided to undergo the CRPS Treatment in Italy

The patient had been searching for treatments against CRPS for a while when she came across Neridronate and the CRPS-Treatment Italy team. Coincidentally, a friend of hers was working in the American military base in Vicenza, which is where our headquarters are. The gentleman came to see us and had a chat with a Coordinator, who then got in touch with the lady. She came to Italy 2 months after.

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)

Conclusion

After 4 years of suffering CRPS, this patient was lucky enough to find out about Neridronate and come to Italy very quickly. The treatment had good results as it made all symptoms disappear and her pain levels get 70% lower. It allowed her to be able to walk without crutches. Years after, we are still in touch with the patient, and she happily mentions there is no greater feeling that feeling herself again and being able to play with her grandson.
