Activity Monitoring Assessment of Opiate Withdrawal - 4

2014-07-24 14:36:46 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine if hyperactivity accompanies abrupt opiate withdrawal in heroin addicts, to determine if computerized solid state activity monitors are capable of quantifying hyperactivity, and to quantify the physical and affective symptoms occurring during abrupt withdrawal in heroin addicts and morphine's capacity to alleviate these symptoms.

Comparison of Three Opioid Detoxification Treatment Regimens

Despite an increased focus on treating opioid use disorder there are relatively few studies that compare the length of time required for detoxification with medications other than buprenor...

Ketamine Improves Post-Thoracotomy Analgesia

Thoracotomy for lung tumor or for minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass (MIDCAB) surgery, may be associated with debilitating pain. Ketamine was shown to enhance opioid antinoci...

The aim of the study is to determine if there are attention disorders related to acute morphine use in single-traumatized patients and after that the investigators will determine whether t...

Role of Methadone As Co-Opioid Analgesic

Primary Objective: To determine whether the addition of low dose methadone to morphine(in the methadone group) has a lower dose escalation index as compared to the morphine alone(in the m...

The role of the vasopressin system and dopamine D1 receptors in the effects of social housing condition on morphine reward.

The association with opioid-abusing individuals or even the perception of opioid abuse by peers are risk factors for the initiation and escalation of abuse. Similarly, we demonstrated that morphine-tr...

AMPA receptor positive allosteric modulators attenuate morphine tolerance and dependence.

Development of opioid tolerance and dependence hinders the use of opioids for the treatment of chronic pain. In searching for the mechanism and potential intervention for opioid tolerance and dependen...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Agents that induce NARCOSIS. This term is considered outdated due to imprecision but continues to be widely used. Originally, agents that caused somnolence or induced sleep (STUPOR); now, any derivative, natural or synthetic, of OPIUM or MORPHINE or any substance that has their effects. Narcotics are potent inducers of ANALGESIA and OPIOID-RELATED DISORDERS.

Disorders related or resulting from abuse or mis-use of opioids.

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)

An opioid analgesic made from MORPHINE and used mainly as an analgesic. It has a shorter duration of action than morphine.

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.
