内容紹介

The efficacy of Neurotropin (NT) for chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is presented. Eleven CFS patients received NT as 4-8 tablets per day (average: 6.6 tablets). Subjective fatigue at the initial visit was considered 100, and subjective fatigue after treatment was an index of therapeutic efficacy. Patients whose subjective fatigue decreased to 30% or less with NT alone, or NT and other medicine(s), and whose subjective fatigue did not recur after discontinuation of treatment were 2 and 1, respectively. Patients whose subjective fatigue decreased to 30% or less with NT alone, or NT and other medicine(s), and whose medication was continued were 2 and 1, respectively. Patients whose subjective fatigue decreased to 90% or less but did not decrease to 30% or less with NT alone, or NT and other medicine(s) were 1 and 1, respectively. One patient discontinued treatment because of adverse effects (epigastric distress) of NT. Two patients discontinued treatment because of adverse effects (drug-induced liver injury) during administration of NT and other medicine(s).
In Japan, NT is widely used for chronic pain, such as low back pain, neck-shoulder-arm syndrome, osteoarthritis, subacute myelo-optico-neuropathy, postherpetic neuralgia, and complex regional pain syndrome. Analgesic effects of NT are thought to be the activation of a descending pain inhibitory system; however, it cannot account for the improvement of fatigue. Viral infection theory is a popular hypothesis in the etiology of CFS. NT may activate antivirus action.
