Gabapentin for Painful Diabetic Neuropathy

JAMA. 1999;282(2):133-134. doi:10-1001/pubs.JAMA-ISSN-0098-7484-282-2-jbk0714

To the Editor: Our concerns regarding the article by Dr Backonja and colleagues1 on gabapentin for treatment of painful diabetic neuropathy are related to how data on patient interpretation and recording of pain are statistically analyzed, as well as how clinical rather than statistical significance of improvement on pain scores is determined.
