"A number of recent publications have suggested that a 50% or greater improvement in pain be considered as "substantial." Here we see that this level of pain improvement is associated with a twofold greater degree of functional improvement underscoring this as an important measure of a treatment's effectiveness," said Arnold Gammaitoni, Pharm.D., Vice President, Scientific Affairs at Nuvo.
