The Top 10 Developers of Breakthrough Cancer Pain Medications

Breakthrough pain has been defined as “a transient exacerbation of pain that occurs either spontaneously, or in relation to a specific predictable or unpredictable trigger, despite relatively stable and adequately controlled background pain”.

Studies have estimated the prevalence of breakthrough cancer pain at anywhere between 19% and 95%. In one international study of over 1,095 cancer patients, 2/3 of these patients experienced breakthrough pain.

Breakthrough pain may result in a number of physical problems, psychological problems and social complications. Hence, the presence of breakthrough pain can have a significant negative impact on the quality of life of the patient.
An American Pain Foundation Survey in January, 2010 found that:

- 73% of cancer patients said breakthrough pain wakes them from a deep sleep at least once a month and interrupts their sleep weekly.

- 82% of cancer patients said breakthrough pain had a negative effect on their emotional health.

- 76% of cancer patients said breakthrough pain affects their ability to perform household chores.

Breakthrough pain significantly increases the utilization of healthcare services. It is estimated that the cost of caring for cancer patients who have breakthrough pain is approximately $12,000 per year compared to $2,400 for those without it.
