Synthesis of Morphine Alkaloids and Derivatives.

Summary of "Synthesis of Morphine Alkaloids and Derivatives."

: This review summarizes recent developments in the total synthesis of morphine alkaloids and some of the semisynthetic derivatives. The literature is covered for the period of 5 years after the publication of the last review in 2005. The syntheses that appeared in this period are covered in detail and are placed in the context of all syntheses of opiate alkaloids since the original one published by Gates in 1952. The introduction covers the historical aspects of total synthesis of these alkaloids. The synthesis of some of the medicinally useful derivatives is reviewed in the last section along with some of the methodology required for their preparation.

Application of diazene-directed fragment assembly to the total synthesis and stereochemical assignment of (+)-desmethyl-meso-chimonanthine and related heterodimeric alkaloids.

We describe the first application of our methodology for heterodimerization via diazene fragmentation towards the total synthesis of (-)-calycanthidine, meso-chimonanthine, and (+)-desmethyl-meso-chim...

Oxidized Derivatives of Macroline, Sarpagine, and Pleiocarpamine Alkaloids from Alstonia angustifolia.

A total of 20 new indole alkaloids comprising mainly oxidized derivatives of macroline- (including alstofonidine, a macroline indole incorporating a butyrolactone ring-F), pleiocarpamine-, and sarpagi...

Catalytic Asymmetric Assembly of Octahydroindolones: Divergent Synthesis of Lycorine-type Amaryllidaceae Alkaloids (+)-α-Lycorane and (+)-Lycorine.

We report the first catalytic asymmetric approach to octahydroindolones and a divergent enantioselective synthesis of perhydroindole alkaloids, as exemplified by lycorine-type Amaryllidaceae alkaloids...

Studies on C20-Diterpenoid Alkaloids: Synthesis of the Hetidine Framework and its Application to the Synthesis of Dihydronavirine and the Atisine Skeleton.

The full details of a synthesis of the hetidine framework of the C20-diterpenoid alkaloids and its conversion to the atisine core structure are reported. The application of the hetidine framework to t...

Total syntheses of indolactam alkaloids (-)-indolactam V, (-)-pendolmycin, (-)-lyngbyatoxin A, and (-)-teleocidin A-2.

0.05 mg Versus 0.1 mg Spinal Morphine for Reducing Morphine Requirement After Vaginal Hysterectomy

This study aims to compare the effect of spinal morphine between the dose 0.05 mg and 0.1 mg on the amount of morphine during the first 24 hours postoperative.

Inhaled Morphine Compared With Morphine By Mouth in Treating Cancer Patients With Breakthrough Pain

RATIONALE: Morphine that is inhaled may be more rapidly absorbed than morphine that is given by mouth. It is not yet known if inhaled morphine is more effective than morphine given by mout...

Comparison of A Single Dose Combination of Methadone and Morphine With Morphine Alone for Treating Post-operative Pain

This is a randomized Phase II study testing the effectiveness of the combination of morphine and methadone versus morphine alone in relieving pain. A second goal is to further evaluate any...

Trial of Vinflunine Versus Alkylating Agent in Metastatic Breast Cancer

In metastatic breast cancer (MBC) patients who have already received anthracyclines, taxanes, antimetabolites and vinca-alkaloids and have developed drug resistance to these drugs, therape...

Morphine for the Treatment of Pain in Patients With Breast Cancer

RATIONALE: Morphine helps to relieve the pain associated with cancer surgery. Giving morphine in different ways may offer more pain relief. PURPOSE: This randomized clinical trial is stud...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Analogs or derivatives of morphine.

Morphine derivatives of the methanobenzazocine family that act as potent analgesics.

The principal alkaloid in opium and the prototype opiate analgesic and narcotic. Morphine has widespread effects in the central nervous system and on smooth muscle.

The air-dried exudate from the unripe seed capsule of the opium poppy, Papaver somniferum, or its variant, P. album. It contains a number of alkaloids, but only a few - MORPHINE; CODEINE; and PAPAVERINE - have clinical significance. Opium has been used as an analgesic, antitussive, antidiarrheal, and antispasmodic.

An opioid analgesic made from MORPHINE and used mainly as an analgesic. It has a shorter duration of action than morphine.
