Name: Pain medicine (Malden, Mass.)
In patch-based transdermal drug delivery, adhesiveness is critical for safe and effective treatment, especially in Parkinson's disease (PD) where excessive sweating is common. This study compared the ...
OBJECTIVE To determine pharmacokinetics and sedative effects of buprenorphine after IV and oral transmucosal (OTM) administration in guinea pigs. ANIMALS 14 male guinea pigs (6 adults for preliminary ...
Introduction: The use of liquid crystalline (LC) gel formulations for drug delivery has considerably improved the current delivery methods in terms of bioavailability and efficacy. The purpose of this...
Sublingual buprenorphine is used in opioid maintenance treatment but buprenorphine is also widely abused and causes fatal poisonings. The aim of this study was to investigate buprenorphine-positive fa...
The purpose of the extension phase is to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of BTDS.
The original objective of this study was to demonstrate the effectiveness and tolerability of the buprenorphine transdermal system (BTDS) 20 micrograms (mcg)/hour (h) in comparison to the ...
The purpose of this phase is to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of BTDS. Qualified subjects are started on BTDS 5 and the dose may be titrated, if necessary, to a maximum of...
The primary objective of this pilot trial is to identify pain model(s) which allow(s) to compare and differentiate the analgesic effects between transdermal fentanyl 25Âµg/h, transdermal...
The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of buprenorphine on QT intervals in healthy subjects.
Meta-analysis of randomized trials in which estimates of comparative treatment effects are visualized and interpreted from a network of interventions that may or may not have been evaluated directly against each other. Common considerations in network meta-analysis include conceptual and statistical heterogeneity and incoherence.
A pharmaceutical preparation that combines buprenorphine, an OPIOID ANALGESIC with naloxone, a NARCOTIC ANTAGONIST to reduce the potential for NARCOTIC DEPENDENCE in the treatment of pain. It may also be used for OPIATE SUBSTITUTION THERAPY.
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.
Administration of a soluble dosage form between the cheek and gingiva. It may involve direct application of a drug onto the buccal mucosa, as by painting or spraying.
Works consisting of studies using a quantitative method of combining the results of independent studies (usually drawn from the published literature) and synthesizing summaries and conclusions which may be used to evaluate therapeutic effectiveness, plan new studies, etc. It is often an overview of clinical trials. It is usually called a meta-analysis by the author or sponsoring body and should be differentiated from reviews of literature.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
