    Introduction: The Nobel Laureate, Erwin Schrodinger, declared in 1943 that "living matter at the cellular level can be thought of in terms of quantum mechanics - pure physics and chemistry."(1) This has led the new field of "molecular pain"(2) to address physiologic and pathologic pain at the cellular, subcellular and molecular levels. "Quantum resonance induction"(3) claims that electrical currents and electromagnetic energy fields will induce and amplify subatomic particle movements and activity to create healing within cells. An electronic signaling technique (EST) employs variable amplitudes, frequencies and harmonics to produce profound anti-inflammatory effects.(4) When used immediately after injections of local anesthetic and called Combined Electrochemical Therapy (CET)(5) it produces significantly more effective and safer results than current pharmacologic options.(6,7) This study provides anatomic evidence that CET regenerates nerves destroyed by neuropathy.

    Methods: Forty-one patients treated at three different clinics for painful peripheral neuropathy (PPN) received up to 24 CETs. Epidermal Nerve Fiber Density (ENFD) biopsies were done at a total of 111 nerve sites (2.7 sites/patient) before starting CET and 2-8 months after treatment, as were the pre and post treatment VAS scores.

    Results: Thirty of forty-one patients(73%) had some growth at one or more biopsy sites. Each positive biopsy site had an average ENFD of 3.0 fibers per mm pre CET and 4.5 fibers per mm post CET, a 50% increase in nerve fibers per positive site. The average VAS decreased from 7.6 pre CET to 1.8 post CET (76% VAS decrease). Thirty-five of forty-one patients (85%) reduced their VAS by at least 50% or more. None had any adverse side effects.

    Conclusions: This study presents anatomic evidence that CET can regenerate nerves damaged by PPN. It also shows that 85% of patients who receive CET reduce their VAS by 50% or more.

    Patient Care: When CET becomes the accepted standard of care for PPN the millions of patients who suffer daily from PPN will have access to an effective and safe technique that relieves their pain by regenerating their damaged nerves

    Learning Objectives: By the end of this presentation participants should understand that utilizing "quantum mechanics" at the cellular level will regenerate nerves
