Vestibulodynia: synergy between palmitoylethanolamide + Transpolydatin and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation
Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease 2013 Apr; 17 (2): 111-6


CONDIVIDI SU
The study aimed to assess the effect of palmitoylethanolamide + transpolydatin combination in patients with vestibulodynia undergoing transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy and to confirm the effectiveness of TENS also in a domiciliary protocol.
The study is based on the premise that palmitoylethanolamide + transpolydatin combination may contribute to a down-regulation of mast cell hyperactivity, which is believed to be responsible for the proliferation and sprouting of vestibular pain fibers and the associated hyperalgesia and allodynia.
