Intrathecal ziconotide in clinical practice

Takeaway

  • Ziconotide intrathecal (IT) therapy is an effective treatment for pain, particularly in patients with neuropathic pain where ziconotide is the first IT therapy.

Why this matters

  • Ziconotide is licensed for the treatment of severe chronic pain in adults for whom IT therapy is indicated and who are intolerant/refractory to other treatments.

  • Limited data are available on the use of ziconotide in clinical practice.
