  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to see if an investigational drug known as the lidocaine 5% patch is safe and effective in reducing the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy, to examine how topical lidocaine affects the nerve endings, and to determine whether treatment with the lidocaine patch can prevent the potential progression to chronic diabetic neuropathy pain in subjects who did not report pain at the start of the study.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Healthy control patients
Subjects 18 to 70 years of age, non-diabetic with no nervous system disease
Other: Skin biopsy
Skin biopsy specimens will processed and analyzed for Nerve fiber count, nerve and skin morphology, and sodium channel specific epitope expression in keratinocytes.
Type I or Type II diabetes with painful diabetic neuropathy
18 to 70 years old with significantly painful diabetic neuropathy
Other: Skin biopsy
Skin biopsy specimens will be processed and analyzed for nerve fiber count, nerve and skin morphology and sodium channel specific epitope expression in keratinocytes.
Subjects with Type I or Type II diabetes
18 to 70 years of age with Type I or Type II diabetes with significantly painful diabetic neuropathy.
Other: Skin biopsy
Skin biopsy specimens will processed and analyzed for Nerve fiber count, nerve and skin morphology, and sodium channel specific epitope expression in keratinocytes.
