Opioids are well known, widely used painkillers. Increased stability of opioids in the dried blood spot (DBS) matrix compared to blood/plasma has been described. Other benefits provided by DBS techniques include point-of-care collection, less invasive micro sampling, more economical shipment, and convenient storage. Current methodology for analysis of micro whole blood samples for opioids is limited to the classical DBS workflow, including tedious manual punching of the DBS cards followed by extraction and liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) bioanalysis...

OBJECTIVES: Opioid-induced androgen deficiency (OPIAD) affects patients treated with opioid analgesics. The norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (NRI) and µ-opioid receptor (MOR) agonist activities of tapentadol may result in tapentadol having less effect on serum androgen concentrations than analgesics acting through the MOR alone, such as morphine and oxycodone. The objectives of this publication are to 1) evaluate the effects of tapentadol (NUCYNTA and NUCYNTA extended release [ER]) on sex hormone concentrations in healthy male volunteers (vs placebo and morphine) and patients with osteoarthritis (vs placebo and oxycodone), and 2) present a mechanistic hypothesis explaining how the combined MOR agonist and NRI activities of tapentadol may result in less impact on androgen concentrations...

Opioid-induced bowel dysfunction (OIBD) is a burdensome condition which limits the therapeutic benefit of analgesia. It affects the entire gastrointestinal tract, predominantly by activating opioid receptors in the enteric nervous system, resulting in a wide range of symptoms, such as reflux, bloating, abdominal cramping, hard, dry stools, and incomplete evacuation. The majority of studies evaluating OIBD focus on constipation experienced in approximately 60% of patients. Nevertheless, other presentations of OIBD seem to be equally frequent...

BACKGROUND: Opioid analgesics are the most effective drugs for the treatment of moderate to severe pain. However, they also produce several adverse effects that can complicate pain management. The μ opioid (MOP) receptor, a G protein-coupled receptor, is recognized as the opioid receptor type which primarily mediates the pharmacological actions of clinically used opioid agonists. The morphinan class of analgesics including morphine and oxycodone are of main importance as therapeutically valuable drugs...

BACKGROUND: The oxaliplatin-based regimen FOLFOX is widely used to treat patients with advanced colorectal cancer (CRC). However, dose-limiting toxicity after continuous oxaliplatin administration can lead to peripheral neuropathy. Several agents, including opioids, that have been employed to treat oxaliplatin-induced peripheral neuropathy (OIPN) have been examined in clinical settings regarding their protective and therapeutic effects. However, the pharmacotherapy of these agents has not yet been established...

Drug concentration is a factor in the determination of the manner of death, but considerable overlap exists between therapeutic and toxic concentrations. This study aims to quantify opioid mortality in Kansas from use of fentanyl, methadone and oxycodone and to evaluate utility of drug concentrations for the determination of the manner of death. Cases referred to a forensic pathology practice in Kansas for autopsy from 1 January 2001 to 31 December 2011 were considered. The criterion for inclusion was detection of fentanyl, methadone and/or oxycodone in postmortem toxicology...

The use of medicines, with or without medical prescription, for recreational ends by the young population has received little attention from doctors. In the USA, one in five adolescents has used medicines for recreational purposes, and consultations in Emergency Departments for medicine abuse have exceeded those for illegal drugs. Although few data are available in Spain, such consumption is situated between 3.1 and 8.6% according to surveys. The medicines most used are dextromethorphan and methylphenidate...

There is a rising trend of fatal poisonings due to medicinal opioids in several countries. The present study evaluates the drug and alcohol findings as well as the cause and manner of death in opioid-related post-mortem cases in Finland from 2000 to 2008. During this period, fatal poisonings by prescription opioids (buprenorphine, codeine, dextropropoxyphene, fentanyl, methadone, oxycodone, tramadol) increased as a share of all drug poisonings from 9.5% to 32.4%, being 22.3% over the whole period. A detailed study including the most prevalent opioids was carried out for the age group of 14-44 years, which is the most susceptible age for drug abuse in Finland...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this retrospective study was to compare oxycodone concentrations in saliva and whole blood with a view to propose therapeutic concentrations in oral fluid. Oral fluid is an easy specimen to collect with several advantages over urine, including ease of collection and difficulty of adulteration. As oral fluid is a reflection of free drug circulating in the blood, drug concentrations in saliva are more closely related to blood levels than urine concentrations. The number of testing laboratories offering the analysis of prescription pain medications in urine has increased significantly over the last few years, along with the overuse and abuse of pain killing drugs, specifically oxycodone...

BACKGROUND: An immediate-release oxycodone hydrochloride formulation (IRO-A) indicated for moderate to severe pain was designed (by adding functional excipients) to discourage tampering associated with intranasal and intravenous abuse of prescription opioids. OBJECTIVES: The primary objective of this study was to determine the dose proportionality of oxycodone in IRO-A tablets under fasted conditions. Secondary objectives were to assess food effects on the pharmacokinetics of IRO-A tablets, to compare the relative bioavailability of oxycodone in IRO-A tablets versus marketed oxycodone hydrochloride (IRO) tablets under fed conditions and to evaluate the single-dose safety profile of the IRO-A tablets in healthy volunteers pretreated with naltrexone...

Opioid conjugate vaccines have shown promise in attenuating the behavioral effects of heroin or morphine in animals. The goal of this study was to extend this approach to oxycodone (OXY), a commonly abused prescription opioid. Haptens were generated by adding tetraglycine (Gly)(4) or hemisuccinate (HS) linkers at the 6-position of OXY. Immunization of rats with OXY(Gly)(4) conjugated to the carrier proteins bovine serum albumin (BSA) or keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) produced high-titer antibodies to OXY and its metabolite oxymorphone with substantially lower affinities for other structurally related opioid agonists and antagonists...

PURPOSE: Little is known about the pharmacokinetics (PKs) of oxycodone in patients with advanced cancer. There is considerable reluctance to subject these patients to non-essential tests including repeated venipuncture that has been necessary in PK studies to date. We investigated the possibility of using saliva sampling as a simple non-invasive test to investigate opioid PKs. METHODS: Patients with malignant disease receiving oral sustained release (SR) oxycodone at any dose were asked to provide saliva samples at the same time as blood samples...

The treatment of chronic pain, therapeutic opioid use and abuse, and the nonmedical use of prescription drugs have been topics of intense focus and debate. After the liberalization of laws governing opioid prescribing for the treatment of chronic non-cancer pain by state medical boards in the late 1990s, and with the introduction of new pain management standards implemented by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) in 2000, opioids, in general, and the most potent forms of opioids including Schedule II drugs, in particular, have dramatically increased...

BACKGROUND: Prescription opioid (RxO) abuse, dependence and misuse is a significant and growing problem in the US, and is associated with a substantial economic burden. Such abuse may be reduced by theoretical formulations that minimize the possibility of abuse, dependence and misuse of RxOs by injection, snorting, crushing or chewing. As well as public health and safety benefits, use of an abuse-deterrent/resistant RxO (ADO) that may deter abuse, dependence and misuse could also generate cost savings...

BACKGROUND: There is an increasing body of evidence supporting the need for prophylactic management of the adverse events (AEs) associated with long-term opioid use in patients with chronic pain. Symptoms of bowel dysfunction, such as constipation, may have a significant impact on a patient's quality of life and willingness to continue opioid therapy, and therefore should be managed proactively to ensure that the patient can continue effective pain management. The fixed-dose combination (FDC) prolonged-release (PR) oxycodone/naloxone (OXN) may be an effective therapeutic approach to delivering analgesia, with a reduced risk for opioid-induced constipation...

BACKGROUND: Oxycodone has become popular for post-Caesarean section (CS) analgesia yet it is not currently recommended for use in breast-feeding mothers because of limited information on its excretion into breast milk. AIM: To investigate the relationship between maternal ingestion of oxycodone after CS and the resultant maternal plasma, breast milk and neonatal plasma drug levels up to 72-h post-partum. METHODS: Fifty breast-feeding mothers taking oxycodone had blood and breast milk samples analysed for oxycodone levels at 24 h intervals after CS...
