abstract

  • Impaired RDD occurs in animal models of diabetes and was also detected in diabetic patients with painful vs painless neuropathy. RDD status can be determined using standard neurophysiological equipment. Loss of RDD may provide a clinical biomarker of spinal disinhibition, thereby enabling a personalized medicine approach to selection of current treatment options and enrichment of future clinical trial populations.
