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.

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.

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...

To examine awareness of, experience with, and attitudes toward buprenorphine, to begin to understand why opioid users may not access buprenorphine treatment. Factors associated with attitudes toward b...
Deaths related to opioid overdose have increased in the past decade. Community-based pharmacy practitioners have worked toward overcoming logistic and cultural barriers to make naloxone distribution f...
Among agents for treatment of opioid addiction, methadone is a full mu-opioid receptor agonist, whereas buprenorphine is a partial agonist. Both are long-acting. Buprenorphine has a superior safety pr...
