Management of adverse effects of opioid therapy.

More than 6 million people in Germany suffer from chronic pain which greatly impairs their wellbeing. Often the only therapeutic option is to use class 2 or 3 analgesic opioids in the WHO classificati...

The multifunctional peptide DN-9 produced peripherally acting antinociception in inflammatory and neuropathic pain via mu and kappa opioid receptors.

Considerable effort has recently been directed at developing multifunctional opioid drugs to minimize the unwanted side-effects of opioid analgesics. We developed a novel multifunctional agonist named...

Non-opioid analgesics as adjuvants to opioid for pain management in adult patients in the ICU: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

To identify the impact of non-opioid analgesics as adjuvants to opioid on opioid consumption and its side effects, as well as the analgesic effectiveness in adult patients in the ICU.

Opioid induced adrenal insufficiency: what is new?

Despite the declaration of an opioid epidemic, opioid use remains prevalent. Side-effects of chronic opioid use continue to be problematic. Opioid-induced endocrinopathies have been well documented, y...

Solving the Opioid Crisis: Respiratory Depression by Opioids as Critical Endpoint.

Opioid overdose is due to misuse of prescription pain killers such as oxycodone, as well as misuse of street drugs like heroin or fentanyl. Opioid overdoses are responsible for the deaths of over 50,0...

Electroacupuncture for Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery

A multimodal approach for management of post-operative pain is used to improve analgesia, minimize side effects, and improve recovery. Nevertheless, opioid analgesics and intravenous patie...

Minimal Opioid Use After Total Hip Replacement (THR)

Total hip arthroplasty can be associated with significant postoperative pain. Side effects of pain management may impair participation in physical therapy and slow readiness for discharge ...

Ancillary Effects of Oral Naloxegol (Movantik)

The purpose of this study is to find out whether oral Naloxegol can reduce the side effects of opioid painkillers following surgery. This study aims to explore whether Naloxegol can simila...

Optimizing Outpatient Anesthesia (OSPREy-Outpatient Surgery Pain Relief Enhancement)

Naloxone SR Capsules in Patients With Opioid Induced Constipation

For many patients taking opioids for pain relief one of the most distressing side effects is constipation. Naloxone is effective in the reversal of the effects of opioids and is used follo...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A narcotic antagonist with some agonist properties. It is an antagonist at mu opioid receptors and an agonist at kappa opioid receptors. Given alone it produces a broad spectrum of unpleasant effects and it is considered to be clinically obsolete.

A synthetic opioid that is used as the hydrochloride. It is an opioid analgesic that is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. It has actions and uses similar to those of MORPHINE. It also has a depressant action on the cough center and may be given to control intractable cough associated with terminal lung cancer. Methadone is also used as part of the treatment of dependence on opioid drugs, although prolonged use of methadone itself may result in dependence. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1082-3)

A class of opioid receptors recognized by its pharmacological profile. Kappa opioid receptors bind dynorphins with a higher affinity than endorphins which are themselves preferred to enkephalins.

A class of opioid receptors recognized by its pharmacological profile. Mu opioid receptors bind, in decreasing order of affinity, endorphins, dynorphins, met-enkephalin, and leu-enkephalin. They have also been shown to be molecular receptors for morphine.

A class of opioid receptors recognized by its pharmacological profile. Delta opioid receptors bind endorphins and enkephalins with approximately equal affinity and have less affinity for dynorphins.
