Pain-Related Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms: Association With Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Patient Experience And Non-Surgical Treatment Outcomes London Spine Lumbar Stenosis

The article explores the association of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in Neuropeptide Y (NPY) and Catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) with pain, function, and treatment outcomes in Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) patients receiving non-surgical treatments. The study found that subjects with the NPY rs16147 TT genotype had higher baseline symptom severity but were more likely to respond to non-surgical treatments. On the other hand, subjects with the COMT rs4680 GG genotype also had higher baseline symptom severity but did not show a greater response to treatment. Overall, NPY rs16147 and COMT rs4680 are potential biomarkers associated with pain and function, with NPY genotype being useful in predicting the response to non-surgical treatments in older adults with LSS

Abstract

Purpose: Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is common in our aging population resulting in pain and functional impairment. Recent advances in pain research have identified several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) associated with inter-individual symptom and treatment response. The goal of the current study was to investigate the association of SNPs in Neuropeptide Y (NPY) and Catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) with pain, function, and treatment outcomes in Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) patients receiving non-surgical treatments.

Methods: An exploratory observational biomarker study was performed ancillary to a previously published clinical trial evaluating three different non-surgical treatments for LSS. Saliva samples were obtained for single nucleotide polymorphism genotyping and blood samples were collected for NPY protein. Data on pain and function collected as part of the clinical trial at baseline, 2 and 6 months were examined for association with known polymorphisms in NPY and COMT.

Results: Subjects with the NPY rs16147 TT genotype exhibited higher baseline symptom severity but also a higher likelihood of responding to non-surgical treatments. Subjects with the COMT rs4680 GG genotype also exhibited higher baseline symptom severity but did not demonstrate greater response to treatment.

Conclusions: NPY rs16147 and COMT rs4680 are important potential biomarkers associated with pain and function. NPY genotype may be useful in predicting response to non-surgical treatments in older adults with LSS.
