Summary of "Prolonged ethanol administration prevents the development of tolerance to morphine-induced respiratory depression."

Opioid users regularly consume other drugs such as alcohol (ethanol). Acute administration of ethanol can rapidly reverse tolerance to morphine-induced respiratory depression. However, alcohol consumption by opioid users is likely to occur over prolonged time periods. We have therefore sought to determine the effect of prolonged alcohol consumption on the development of tolerance to opioid respiratory depression.

Evaluation of the effects of metformin administration on morphine tolerance in mice.

Opioids are used in clinical practice to relieve moderate to severe pain. Prolonged use of opioids can lead to a situation of analgesic tolerance and dependence. Several mechanisms are involved in the...

Blockade of peripheral nociceptive signal input relieves the formation of spinal central sensitization and retains morphine efficacy in a neuropathic pain rat model.

Neural plasticity, especially central sensitization, is essential for developing and maintaining neuropathic pain. Unfortunately, the analgesic potency of morphine is greatly reduced in animal models ...

Effect of heat shock protein 70 modulators on the development of morphine analgesic tolerance in rats.

The clinical use of opioid analgesics, such as morphine, is limited by analgesic tolerance, molecular mechanism of which is not well understood. Recently, molecular chaperone heat shock protein 70 (Hs...

Liproxstatin-1 attenuates morphine tolerance through inhibiting spinal ferroptosis-like cell death.

Morphine tolerance is a classic, challenging clinical issue. However, the mechanism underlying this phenomenon remains poorly understood. Recently, studies have shown that ferroptosis correlates with ...

Cross state-dependent memory retrieval between morphine and norharmane in the mouse dorsal hippocampus.

State-dependent memory (SDM) describes a phenomenon that memory is efficiently restored only when the brain state during restoration matches the state during encoding. Some psychoactive drugs such as ...

The Effects of Ethanol on Intestinal Permeability and Gut Hormones

The aime of this study is to envsitigate if ethanol has an incretin effect. This is done by administration of ethanol orally vs. an isoethanolaemic i.v. infusion of ethanol.

Opiate-Induced Tolerance & Hyperalgesia in Pain Patients

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.

Administration of low doses of a drug or a drug combination over prolonged periods of time usually at a regular interval.

The mechanism, in central lymphoid organs (THYMUS; BONE MARROW), that prevents immature lymphocytes from reacting to SELF-ANTIGENS. This is accomplished by CLONAL ANERGY and CLONAL DELETION.

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.

A potent inhibitor of membrane metalloendopeptidase (ENKEPHALINASE). Thiorphan potentiates morphine-induced ANALGESIA and attenuates naloxone-precipitated withdrawal symptoms.
