Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Degree of pain induced by ATP vs. saline iontophoresis [ Time Frame: 4 minutes ]
  • Increase in blood flow induced by ATP iontophoresis [ Time Frame: 8 minutes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Test-retest reproducibility and intra-subject variability of AIP and AIDV [ Time Frame: 8 minutes ]

Enrollment: 44
Study Start Date: October 2009
Study Completion Date: June 2011
Primary Completion Date: June 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: 1
ATP
Procedure: Comparator: Iontophoresis and Laser Doppler with ATP
Iontophoresis treatments with 10 mM ATP (adenosine triphosphate) solution and a current of 0.8 or 1.2 mA. Iontophoresis treatments will last 4 minutes. Laser doppler will be used during the iontophoresis treatments to measure dermal blood flow.
Placebo Comparator: 2
Saline
Procedure: Comparator: Iontophoresis and Laser Doppler with Saline
Iontophoresis treatments with 20 mM saline solution and a current of 0.8 or 1.2 mA. Iontophoresis treatments will last 4 minutes. Laser doppler will be used during the iontophoresis treatments to measure dermal blood flow.
