Buprenorphine Pharmacology Related to Addiction Treatment - 18
The purpose of this study is to examine the interactions between buprenorphine and naltrexone, and to assess how they may directly impact the clinical issues involving: transferring patients from buprenorphine to naltrexone, developing a non-abusable form of buprenorphine, and enhancing patient acceptability of naltrexone.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Buprenorphine is a medication used to treat opioid addiction, but individuals who use this drug are at risk of abusing it. A buprenorphine and naloxone combination may reduce the likelihoo...
The purpose of this study is to assess the abuse liability and examine the reinforcing effects of intravenous buprenorphine and buprenorphine/naloxone combinations in buprenorphine-naloxon...
The purpose of this study is to compare two 3-month treatments for adolescents/young adults who are addicted to heroin: buprenorphine/naloxone combined with psychosocial therapy and treatm...
Substance use disorders are a key concern among US veterans. Substance use disorder pharmacotherapies with support for effectiveness are limited. Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) is an effective opio...
Initial medication response has been shown to predict treatment outcome across a variety of substance use disorders, but no studies have examined the predictive power of initial response to buprenorph...
Abstract Background: There are limited efficacy and safety data for buprenorphine/naloxone treatment in adolescents, and little is known about the incidence and prevalence of liver function abnormalit...
We aim to examine predictors of opiate abstinence status 3 months after the end of buprenorphine/naloxone treatment for opioid-dependent participants.
Although numbers of physicians credentialed to prescribe buprenorphine has increased over time, many credentialed physicians may be reluctant to treat individuals with opioid use disorders due to disc...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A derivative of the opioid alkaloid THEBAINE that is a more potent and longer lasting analgesic than MORPHINE. It appears to act as a partial agonist at mu and kappa opioid receptors and as an antagonist at delta receptors. The lack of delta-agonist activity has been suggested to account for the observation that buprenorphine tolerance may not develop with chronic use.
Disorders related or resulting from abuse or mis-use of opioids.
An opioid antagonist with properties similar to those of NALOXONE; in addition it also possesses some agonist properties. It should be used cautiously; levallorphan reverses severe opioid-induced respiratory depression but may exacerbate respiratory depression such as that induced by alcohol or other non-opioid central depressants. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p683)
Medical treatment for opioid dependence using a substitute opiate such as METHADONE or BUPRENORPHINE.
A specific opiate antagonist that has no agonist activity. It is a competitive antagonist at mu, delta, and kappa opioid receptors.
