The purpose of this study is to verify the effectiveness, safety and pharmacokinetics of fentanyl transdermal matrix patches containing either 12.5 mcg/hr, 25 mcg/hr, or 50 mcg/hr in Japanese patients with cancer pain who have been switched from minimum amount of existing morphine preparations, such as equivalent to less than 45 mg/day of oral morphine, or oral oxycodone preparations equivalent to less than 30 mg/day.
Fentanyl transdermal matrix patch is a narcotic analgesic agent. Compared with the existing reservoir-type Durotep® Patch, it is not liable to leakage of drug solution and does not contain alcohol, which becomes a cause of skin irritation. Also this new formulation becomes available of smaller one of 12.5 mcg/hr while the smallest Durotep® Patch is 25 mcg/hr. This clinical trial was planned to assess effectiveness, safety and pharmacokinetics of fentanyl transdermal matrix patch at an initial transdermal dose of 12.5 mcg in Japanese cancer patients with pain receiving morphine preparations equivalent to less than 45 mg/day of oral morphine (less than 30 mg for suppository, less than 15 mg for injection), oral oxycodone preparations equivalent to less than 30 mg/day, or fentanyl citrate injectable solution equivalent to less than 0.3 mg/day. After pre-treatment period for one to three days for evaluating the eligibility of the patients for the study, patients will use 3 patches for 10 days.
Starting from the first day of treatment with 12.5 mcg/hr patch, fentanyl will be applied to the chest, the upper arm or other appropriate site, which will be replaced with a new patch every three days (ca. 72 hr). Total treatment duration is ten days, and dose adjustment can be allowed.

The purpose of this observational study is to investigate the impact of fentanyl matrix on improvement of pain and functioning in spinal disorder-related chronic pain.
The efficacy of fentanyl TTS for the treatment of neuropathic pain remains to be established, although opioids in general are clearly effective for neuropathic pain and fentanyl TTS has be...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the usefulness of fentanyl matrix by assessing patients' satisfaction when administrating fentanyl matrix, a background pain treatment, and a break...
Intrathecal infusion pumps are increasingly used to deliver analgesics for chronic intractable pain. The PUMP II trial is designed to evaluate the ongoing safety and efficacy of the new Pr...
Goal of the research will be to demonstrate a reduction in reported pain following the atomization and intra-nasal administration of Fentanyl versus the reduction in pain achieved from int...
Fentanyl rose to prominence as an alternative analgesic to morphine nearly 50 years ago; today, fentanyl has re-emerged as a dangerous recreational substance. The increased potency and analgesic effec...
The cutaneous fentanyl patch is widely used to treat continuous pain in patients with cancer. Its use is hampered by a high inter- and intrapatient pharmacokinetic variability. Factors that influence ...
Using alpha blockers such as intravenous (IV) lidocaine has been deemed effective in controlling acute pain. Therefore, the current study was designed with the aim of evaluating the efficiency of IV l...
A few studies report comparable analgesic efficacy between low-dose ketamine and opioids such as morphine or fentanyl; however, limited research has explored the safety and effectiveness of intravenou...
Fentanyl is an opioid commonly prescribed for cancer pain. Using melanoma-bearing mice, we investigated whether peripheral action would contribute to fentanyl analgesia in cancer pain. Intravenous inj...
Persistent pain that is refractory to some or all forms of treatment.
A potent narcotic analgesic, abuse of which leads to habituation or addiction. It is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. Fentanyl is also used as an adjunct to general anesthetics, and as an anesthetic for induction and maintenance. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1078)
Total or subtotal destruction of the pituitary gland by chemical injection. It is usually achieved by injection of ethyl alcohol via trans-sphenoidal cannulation under stereotaxic control. It is usually performed for the treatment of intractable pain.
A type of pain that is perceived in an area away from the site where the pain arises, such as facial pain caused by lesion of the VAGUS NERVE, or throat problem generating referred pain in the ear.
Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.
