Barriers to Accessing Treatment for Pregnant Women with Opioid Use Disorder in Appalachian States.

Opioid agonist therapies (OAT) are highly effective treatments for opioid use disorders (OUD) especially for pregnant women; thus, improving access to OAT is an urgent public policy goal. Our objective was to determine if insurance and pregnancy status were barriers to obtaining access to OAT in four Appalachian states disproportionately impacted by the opioid epidemic.

Social and structural barriers for adherence to methadone maintenance treatment among Vietnamese opioid dependence patients.

Methadone maintenance treatment (MMT) services may reduce the risk of HIV transmission if patients completely adhere to the treatment. Identifying adherence patterns and potential related factors is vital for the sustainability of MMT program in Vietnam. This study examined social and structural factors associated with adherence to MMT among patients in different service delivery models.

Community strengths in addressing opioid use in Northeastern Ontario.

The number of opioid-related deaths in Ontario is rising, and remote First Nations communities face unique challenges in providing treatment for opioid use disorder. Geographic barriers and resource shortages limit access to opioid agonist therapy, such as buprenorphine or methadone. However, attempts to rapidly expand access have the potential to overlook community consultation. Our experience in Moose Factory, Ontario, offers insight into the ethical questions and challenges that can arise when implementi...

Does Cannabis Use Influence Opioid Outcomes and Quality of Life Among Buprenorphine Maintained Patients? A Cross-sectional, Comparative Study.

Use of various psychoactive substances can influence outcomes of patients on opioid agonist treatment (OAT).

This study aimed to assess the pattern of cannabis use among opioid-dependent patients maintained on buprenorphine. Additionally, the study compared the dose of buprenorphine, opioid-related craving and withdrawals, productivity, and also quality of life between those with and with...

Optimising treatment in opioid dependency in primary care: results from a national key stakeholder and expert focus group in Ireland.

Treatment for opioid dependence in Ireland is provided predominantly by general practitioners (GP) who have undergone additional training in opioid agonist treatment (OAT) and substance misuse. The National Methadone Treatment Programme (MTP) was introduced in 1998, and was designed to treat the opioid dependent population and to regulate the prescribing regimes at the time. The past two decades have seen the increased prescribing of methadone in primary care and changes in type of opioid abused, in particu...

Acute pain management in opioid-maintained patients.

Treatment of acute nociceptive pain in patients with opioid substitution therapy (OST) is an actual topic. The clinical features of this population, as pain sensibility, and the pharmacological features of OST, require an individualized care which must be adjusted to the patient's pain and the OST used. This article offers a summary of the main possible pharmacological strategies by highlighting the features of pain in these patients and removing the barriers to an effective management. Generally, the OST i...

Correlation of cytokines, BDNF levels, and memory function in patients with opioid use disorder undergoing methadone maintenance treatment.

Patients with opioid use disorder (OUD) show memory deficiencies and impaired treatment outcomes. Emerging evidence suggests that opioid abuse activates proinflammatory processes by increasing cytokine production and impairing neuroprotection, which damages the memory function in OUD patients. Therefore, we investigated whether plasma-based inflammatory and neurotrophic markers correlate with memory function in OUD patients.

Transitions of Care for Postoperative Opioid Prescribing in Previously Opioid-Naïve Patients in the USA: a Retrospective Review.

New persistent opioid use is a common postoperative complication, with 6% of previously opioid-naïve patients continuing to fill opioid prescriptions 3-6 months after surgery. Despite these risks, it is unknown which specialties prescribe opioids to these vulnerable patients.

Analysis of Opioid Use Following Curative Cancer Treatment at a Large Urban Safety-Net Hospital.

This study examined the pattern of use and factors predicting for prolonged prescription opioid medications among cancer patients following treatment with curative intent.

Tapering off long-term opioid therapy in chronic non-cancer pain patients: a randomized clinical trial.

The indications for initiating long-term opioid treatment (L-TOT) for chronic non-cancer pain (CNCP) are often unclear and associated with problematic use. This study aimed at evaluating the efficacy of stabilizing opioid therapy followed by a sequential opioid tapering off program in CNCP patients.

Assessment of barrier severity and willingness to enter opioid agonist treatment among people who inject drugs in Ukraine.

Opioid agonist therapies (OAT) in Ukraine were first introduced in 2004 not as addiction treatment, but for HIV prevention. Numerous obstacles have thwarted OAT scale-up, including individual constraints and structural barriers.

Moving opioid misuse prevention upstream: A pilot study of community pharmacists screening for opioid misuse risk.

Prescription opioids are known to be highly addictive, contributing to the opioid epidemic which continues to besiege victims in the United States. Pharmacists are gatekeepers straddling the prescribers of opioids and their patients; therefore they are in the ideal position to screen for opioid misuse among patients receiving opioid prescriptions and counsel them on safe use.

Sex differences in opioid use and medical issues during buprenorphine/naloxone treatment.

There are sex differences in buprenorphine/naloxone clinical trials for opioid use. While women have fewer opioid-positive urine samples, relative to men, a significant decrease in opioid-positive samples was found during treatment for men, but not women. In order to inform sex-based approaches to improve treatment outcomes, research is needed to determine if opioid use, and predictors of opioid use, differs between men and women during treatment.

Efficacy of Lubiprostone for the Treatment of Opioid-Induced Constipation, Analyzed by Opioid Class.

To examine the efficacy and safety of lubiprostone for the treatment of opioid-induced constipation (OIC) in patients by opioid class received.

Treatment Barriers in Portopulmonary Hypertension.

Portopulmonary hypertension (PoPH) is a form of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) that can develop as complication of portal hypertension. Treatment of PoPH includes PAH-specific therapies and in certain cases, such therapies are necessary to facilitate a successful liver transplantation. A significant number of barriers may limit the adequate treatment of patients with PoPH and explain the poorer survival of these patients when compared to other types of PAH. Until recently, only one randomized control...

Factors Affecting Opioid Treatment in Cancer Patients.

Pain is prevalent in cancer patients, appearing to be moderate to severe in more than one third of them. Despite the fact that fentanyl is widely used with effective analgesic results, some patients do not correspond to treatment, resulting in opioid change.

Improved treatment-retention for patients receiving methadone dosing within the clinic providing physician and other health services (onsite) versus dosing at community (offsite) pharmacies.

Opioid-use disorder has been declared a public health crisis across North America. One of the most common treatments for opioid-use disorder is opioid agonist therapy, including MMT. This study examined the impact of methadone dispensing in clinic (onsite) pharmacies versus community (offsite) pharmacies on treatment retention for patients initiating MMT.

Race and Gender Are Associated with Opioid Dose Reduction Among Patients on Chronic Opioid Therapy.

Among patients with chronic pain, risk of opioid use is elevated with high opioid dose or concurrent benzodiazepine use. This study examined whether these clinical factors, or sociodemographic factors of race and gender, are associated with opioid dose reduction.

Pharmacological profile of TAN-452, a novel peripherally acting opioid receptor antagonist for the treatment of opioid-induced bowel syndromes.

Opioid-induced bowel syndromes deteriorate patients' quality of life and may lead to nonadherence to opioid schedule and under-treatment of pain. The objective was to characterize the pharmacological profile of 17-cyclopropylmethyl-6,7-didehydro-4,5α-epoxy-6'-ethoxycarbonyl-3,14-dihydroxyindolo [2',3'-6,7]morphinan (TAN-452), a novel peripherally acting opioid receptor antagonist.

Prescription opioids are associated with higher mortality in patients diagnosed with sepsis: A retrospective cohort study using electronic health records.
