Breakthrough Pain: Acute pain that comes on rapidly despite the use of pain medication.Administration, Buccal: Administration of a soluble dosage form between the cheek and gingiva. It may involve direct application of a drug onto the buccal mucosa, as by painting or spraying.Fentanyl: 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)Analgesics, Opioid: Compounds with activity like OPIATE ALKALOIDS, acting at OPIOID RECEPTORS. Properties include induction of ANALGESIA or NARCOSIS.Labor Pain: Pain associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR in CHILDBIRTH. It is caused primarily by UTERINE CONTRACTION as well as pressure on the CERVIX; BLADDER; and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Labor pain mostly occurs in the ABDOMEN; the GROIN; and the BACK.Pain: An unpleasant sensation induced by noxious stimuli which are detected by NERVE ENDINGS of NOCICEPTIVE NEURONS.Analgesia, Epidural: The relief of pain without loss of consciousness through the introduction of an analgesic agent into the epidural space of the vertebral canal. It is differentiated from ANESTHESIA, EPIDURAL which refers to the state of insensitivity to sensation.Pain Measurement: Scales, questionnaires, tests, and other methods used to assess pain severity and duration in patients or experimental animals to aid in diagnosis, therapy, and physiological studies.Nasal Sprays: Pharmacologic agents delivered into the nostrils in the form of a mist or spray.Double-Blind Method: A method of studying a drug or procedure in which both the subjects and investigators are kept unaware of who is actually getting which specific treatment.Neoplasms: New abnormal growth of tissue. Malignant neoplasms show a greater degree of anaplasia and have the properties of invasion and metastasis, compared to benign neoplasms.Chronic Disease: Diseases which have one or more of the following characteristics: they are permanent, leave residual disability, are caused by nonreversible pathological alteration, require special training of the patient for rehabilitation, or may be expected to require a long period of supervision, observation, or care. (Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)Pain, Postoperative: Pain during the period after surgery.Chronic Pain: Aching sensation that persists for more than a few months. It may or may not be associated with trauma or disease, and may persist after the initial injury has healed. Its localization, character, and timing are more vague than with acute pain.Pain Management: A form of therapy that employs a coordinated and interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those experiencing pain.Pain Threshold: Amount of stimulation required before the sensation of pain is experienced.Pain, Intractable: Persistent pain that is refractory to some or all forms of treatment.Radionuclide Generators: Separation systems containing a relatively long-lived parent radionuclide which produces a short-lived daughter in its decay scheme.

*Breakthrough of the Year

The Breakthrough of the Year is an annual award made by the AAAS journal, Science, for the most significant development in scientific research. Originating in 1989 as the Molecule of the Year, and inspired by Time's Man of the Year, it was renamed the Breakthrough of the Year in 1996. The Breakthrough of the Year is widely recognized as one of the highest distinctions in science.[citation needed] 1989 PCR and DNA polymerase 1990 the manufacture of synthetic diamonds 1991 buckminsterfullerene 1992 nitric oxide 1993 p53 1994 DNA repair enzyme Top 10 scientific breakthroughs and the winners of each year. 1996: Understanding HIVOriginal mysteries Prions hit the press Cyber crush Lasers in the limelight T-cell tales Earthly revolutions Yeast on the rise Early orientation Divining the death wish 1997: Dolly the sheep, the first mammal to be cloned from adult cells 1998: Accelerating universe 1999: Capturing the promise of youth with stem ...

*Guillain-Barré syndrome

... (GBS) is a rapid-onset muscle weakness caused by the immune system damaging the peripheral nervous system. The initial symptoms are typically changes in sensation or pain along with muscle weakness, beginning in the feet and hands. This often spreads to the arms and upper body with both sides being involved. The symptoms develop over hours to a few weeks. During the acute phase, the disorder can be life-threatening with about 15% developing weakness of the breathing muscles requiring mechanical ventilation. Some are affected by changes in the function of the autonomic nervous system, which can lead to dangerous abnormalities in heart rate and blood pressure. The cause is unknown. The underlying mechanism involves an autoimmune disorder in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks the peripheral nerves and damages their myelin insulation. Sometimes this immune dysfunction is triggered by an infection or, less commonly, surgery or vaccination. The diagnosis is ...

*Buccal administration

... refers to a topical route of administration by which drugs held or applied in the buccal (/ˈbʌkəl/) area (in the cheek) diffuse through the oral mucosa (tissues which line the mouth) and enter directly into the bloodstream. Buccal administration may provide better bioavailability of some drugs and a more rapid onset of action compared to oral administration because the medication does not pass through the digestive system and thereby avoids first pass metabolism. As of May 2014, buccal forms of the psychiatric drug, asenapine; the opioid drugs buprenorphine, naloxone, and fentanyl; the cardiovascular drug nitroglycerin; the nausea medication Prochlorperazine; the hormone replacement therapy testosterone, and nicotine as a smoking cessation aid, were commercially available in buccal forms, as was midazolam, an anticonvulsant, used to treat acute epileptic seizures. Buccal administration of vaccines has been studied, but there are challenges to this approach due to immune ...

*Mucoadhesion

Bioadhesion is the mechanism by which two biological materials are held together by interfacial forces. When relating this mechanism to the pharmaceutical sciences, mucoadhesion describes the attractive forces between a biological material and mucus or mucous membrane. Mucus membranes adhere to epithelial surfaces such as the gastrointestinal tract (GI-tract), the vagina, the lung, the eye, etc. They are generally hydrophilic as they contain many hydrogen macromolecules due to the large amount of water (approximately 95%) within its composition. However, mucin also contains glycoproteins that enable the formation of a gel-like substance. Understanding the hydrophilic bonding and adhesion mechanisms of mucus to biological material is of utmost importance in order to produce the most efficient applications. For example, in drug delivery systems, the mucus layer must be penetrated in order to effectively transport micro- or nanosized drug particles into the body. Mucoadhesion involves several types ...

*Methoxyacetylfentanyl

... is an opioid analgesic that is an analog of fentanyl and has been sold online as a designer drug. Side effects of fentanyl analogs are similar to those of fentanyl itself, which include itching, nausea and potentially serious respiratory depression, which can be life-threatening. Fentanyl analogs have killed hundreds of people throughout Europe and the former Soviet republics since the most recent resurgence in use began in Estonia in the early 2000s, and novel derivatives continue to appear. A new wave of fentanyl analogues and associated deaths began in around 2014 in the USA, and have continued to grow in prevalence; especially since 2016 these drugs have been responsible for hundreds of overdose deaths every week. Methoxyacetylfentanyl was placed into Schedule I in the USA in October 2017, in order to avoid an imminent hazard to public safety. α-Methylfentanyl ...

*Cyclopentylfentanyl

... is an opioid analgesic that is an analog of fentanyl and has been sold online as a designer drug, mainly in Sweden and other Scandinavian countries. Side effects of fentanyl analogs are similar to those of fentanyl itself, which include itching, nausea and potentially serious respiratory depression, which can be life-threatening. Fentanyl analogs have killed hundreds of people throughout Europe and the former Soviet republics since the most recent resurgence in use began in Estonia in the early 2000s, and novel derivatives continue to appear. A new wave of fentanyl analogues and associated deaths began in around 2014 in the USA, and have continued to grow in prevalence; especially since 2016 these drugs have been responsible for hundreds of overdose deaths every week. Cyclopentylfentanyl was made illegal in Sweden in January 2017. α-Methylfentanyl Acetylfentanyl ...

*R-30490

... (also known as 4-Methoxymethylfentanyl) is an opioid analgesic related to the highly potent animal tranquilizer carfentanil, and with only slightly lower potency. It was first synthesised by a team of chemists at Janssen Pharmaceutica led by Paul Janssen, who were investigating the structure-activity relationships of the fentanyl family of drugs. R-30490 was found to be the most selective agonist for the μ-opioid receptor out of all the fentanyl analogues tested, but it has never been introduced for medical use in humans, although the closely related drug sufentanil is widely used for analgesia and anesthesia during major surgery. Side effects of fentanyl analogs are similar to those of fentanyl itself, which include itching, nausea and potentially serious respiratory depression, which can be life-threatening. Fentanyl analogs have killed hundreds of people throughout Europe and the former Soviet ...

*Trefentanil

... (A-3665) is an opioid analgesic that is an analogue of fentanyl and was developed in 1992. Trefentanil is most similar to short-acting fentanyl analogues such as alfentanil. In comparative studies, trefentanil was slightly more potent and shorter acting than alfentanil as an analgesic, but induced significantly more severe respiratory depression. For this reason trefentanil has not been adopted for clinical use, although it is still used in research. Trefentanil has very similar effects to alfentanil, much like those of fentanyl itself but more potent and shorter lasting. Side effects of fentanyl analogs are similar to those of fentanyl itself, which include itching, nausea and potentially serious respiratory depression, which can be life-threatening. Fentanyl analogs have killed hundreds of people throughout Europe and the former Soviet republics since the most recent resurgence in use began in Estonia ...

*Butyrfentanyl

... binds to the opioid receptor. During the studies of in vitro inhibition of specific [3H] fentanyl binding to the opioid receptor, the order of analogues was: (±)-cis-3-methylfentanyl , fentanyl = alpha-methylfentanyl , butyrylfentanyl , benzylfentanyl.[2] The studies in inhibition studies on binding affinity achieved the same order of analogues. It means that butyrfentantyl is a less potent opioid-agonist than fentanyl. On the other side, during in vitro studies of cross-reactivity with the fentanyl antibody between fentanyl and the fentanyl analogs examined, revealed order: fentanyl = butyrylfentanyl , (±)-cis-3-methylfentanyl , benzylfentanyl , alpha-methylfentanyl.[2] High cross-reactivity may be the effect of the shape of the molecule - the shape of ...

*4-Fluoroisobutyrfentanyl

4-Fluoroisobutyrylfentanyl (also known as 4-FIBF and p-FIBF) is an opioid analgesic that is an analog of butyrfentanyl and structural isomer of 4-Fluorobutyrfentanyl and has been sold online as a designer drug. It is closely related to 4-fluorofentanyl, which has an EC50 value of 4.2 nM for the human μ-opioid receptor. Side effects of fentanyl analogs are similar to those of fentanyl itself, which include itching, nausea and potentially serious respiratory depression, which can be life-threatening. Fentanyl analogs have killed hundreds of people throughout Europe and the former Soviet republics since the most recent resurgence in use began in Estonia in the early 2000s, and novel derivatives continue to appear. 3-Methylbutyrfentanyl 3-Methylfentanyl 4-Fluorofentanyl α-Methylfentanyl Acetylfentanyl ...

*Benzylfentanyl

... (R-4129) is a fentanyl analog. It was temporarily placed in the US Schedule I by emergency scheduling in 1985 due to concerns about its potential for abuse as a designer drug, but this placement was allowed to expire and benzylfentanyl was formally removed from controlled substance listing in 2010, after the DEA's testing determined it to be "essentially inactive" as an opioid. Benzylfentanyl has a Ki of 213nM at the mu opioid receptor, binding around 200x less strongly than fentanyl itself. Side effects of fentanyl analogs are similar to those of fentanyl itself, which include itching, nausea and potentially serious respiratory depression, which can be life-threatening. Fentanyl analogs have killed hundreds of people throughout Europe and the former Soviet republics since the most recent resurgence in use began in Estonia in the early 2000s, and novel derivatives continue to appear. ...

*Tetrahydrofuranylfentanyl

... is an opioid analgesic that is an analog of fentanyl and has been sold online as a designer drug, first appearing in Europe in late 2016. Side effects of fentanyl analogs are similar to those of fentanyl itself, which include itching, nausea and potentially serious respiratory depression, which can be life-threatening. Fentanyl analogs have killed hundreds of people throughout Europe and the former Soviet republics since the most recent resurgence in use began in Estonia in the early 2000s, and novel derivatives continue to appear. A new wave of fentanyl analogues and associated deaths began in around 2014 in the USA, and have continued to grow in prevalence; especially since 2016 these drugs have been responsible for hundreds of overdose deaths every week. Tetrahydrofuranylfentanyl was placed into Schedule I in the USA in October 2017, in order to avoid an imminent hazard to public safety. ...

*N-Methylcarfentanil

... (R-32395) is an opioid analgesic drug related to the highly potent animal tranquilizer carfentanil, but several thousand times weaker, being only slightly stronger than morphine. It was first synthesised by a team of chemists at Janssen Pharmaceutica led by Paul Janssen, who were investigating the structure-activity relationships of the fentanyl family of drugs. They found that replacing the phenethyl group attached to the piperidine nitrogen of fentanyl with a smaller methyl group, made it so much weaker that it was inactive as an analgesic in animals. However the same change made to the more potent analogue carfentanil retained reasonable opioid receptor activity, reflecting the higher binding affinity produced by the 4-carbomethoxy group. Side effects of fentanyl analogs are similar to those of fentanyl itself, which include itching, nausea and potentially serious respiratory depression, which can be life-threatening. ...

BACKGROUND Rectal diazepam and buccal midazolam are used for emergency treatment of acute febrile and afebrile (epileptic) seizures in children. We aimed to compare the safety and efficacy of these drugs. METHODS A multicentre, randomised controlled trial was undertaken to compare buccal midazolam with rectal diazepam for emergency-room treatment of children aged 6 months and older presenting to hospital with active seizures and without intravenous access. The dose varied according to age from 2.5 to 10 mg. The primary endpoint was therapeutic success: cessation of seizures within 10 min and for at least 1 hour, without respiratory depression requiring intervention. Analysis was per protocol. FINDINGS Consent was obtained for 219 separate episodes involving 177 patients, who had a median age of 3 years (IQR 1-5) at initial episode. Therapeutic success was 56% (61 of 109) for buccal midazolam and 27% (30 of 110) for rectal diazepam (percentage difference 29%, 95% CI 16-41). Analysing only ...
ABSTRACT. Buccal administration of drug provides a convenient route of administration for both systemic and local drug actions. The preferred site for retentive oral transmucosal delivery systems and for sustained and controlled release delivery device is the buccal mucosa. Rapid developments in the field of molecular biology and gene technology resulted in generation of many macromolecular drugs including peptides, proteins, polysaccharides and nucleic acids in great number possessing superior pharmacological efficacy with site specificity and devoid of untoward and toxic effects. However, the main impediment for the oral delivery of such drugs as potential therapeutic agents is their extensive presystemic metabolism, instability in acidic environment resulting into inadequate and erratic oral absorption. Direct access to the systemic circulation through the internal jugular vein bypasses drug from the hepatic first pass metabolism leading to high bioavailability. The objective of this article ...

Going forward testosterone product labels will be required to carry a general warning about the risk of blood clots in the veins. This warning is in addition to current product warnings about the dangers of blot clots for those patients with polycythemia.. The FDA stated it was acting amidst its ongoing cardiovascular risk assessment of testosterone products and on reports of venous blood clots unrelated to polycythemia. This recommendation is unrelated other ongoing investigations and studies related to men taking testosterone products.. The FDA said it will also be taking steps to ensure that the venous clot risk is consistently labeled across all approved testosterone products, which include testosterone topical gel, transdermal patches, buccal administration, and injections.. Patients are encouraged to discuss testosterone products with their physicians to assure the latest information is available.. ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of BEMA fentanyl at any dose in the management of breakthrough pain in cancer subjects on background opioid therapy. The standard of care for these breakthrough pain episodes is a rapid onset, short acting analgesic with minimal associated sleepiness. Oral morphine, oxycodone and hydromorphone are routinely used, but because of slow and variable oral absorption, the pain control is not the best with these products. Oral transmucosal fentanyl citrate (OTFC) has been used successfully in treating breakthrough pain episodes associated with cancer. OTFC is a lozenge of fentanyl on a stick and is administered by continuously swabbing the interior of the subjects mouth until the product is dissolved (approximately 15 to 30 minutes). The buccal route of ...

Onsolis (fentanyl buccal soluble film) has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of breakthrough cancer pain.[1]. Pain may be a side effect of cancer treatment or may be caused by the cancer itself. If not adequately managed, pain may have a tremendous effect on quality of life. Many cancer patients with chronic pain receive treatment with an opioid; however, they continue to experience flares of pain referred to as breakthrough pain. Breakthrough pain can become intensely painful within a few minutes, yet an opioid can take up to 30-60 minutes to take effect.. Onsolis delivers a potent opioid drug called fentanyl through an absorbable film that adheres to the inside of a patients cheek. The drug is designed to target pain more quickly. It ...

Breakthrough pain (BTP) is episodic pain that emerges through the treatment of otherwise well-managed chronic background pain. Often called pain flare or transient pain, BTP negatively affects the function and quality of life of the patient and often results in a number of other physical, psychological and social problems. Breakthrough pain is a common occurrence affecting approximately two-thirds of the estimated 50 to 100 million chronic pain sufferers in the US.
Breakthrough pain is sudden, brief pain that occurs during a period when chronic pain is generally well controlled (typically, controlled with opiods). Breakthrough pain may happen when the patient is at rest or be related to activity or a change of position. Click here for instructions on navigating the ONS PEP webpages.

Intramuscular midazolam is at least as safe and effective as intravenous lorazepam for the prehospital management of status epilepticus. In his blog EM Literature of Note, Dr Ryan Radecki looks forward to a similar trial comparing nasal midazolam, which would reduce the risk from injections. Read his full critique here. Buccal midazolam 0.5 mg/kg is of course also an option, as described in the Advanced Paediatric Life Support manual:. If using the buccal route, draw up the higher dose (0.5mg) of the IV preparation using a needle (to avoid any fragments of glass from the ampoule) and after removing the needle, inject the drug into the buccal area between the lower bottom lip and the gum margin at the side of the mouth. Buccal midazolam is twice as effective as rectal diazepam, but both drugs produce the same level and degree of respiratory depression.. ...
The specific aim of this work was to prepare mucoadhesive patches containing tetracycline hydrochloride and carvacrol in an attempt to develop a novel oral drug delivery system for the treatment of mouth infections. The bilayered patches were prepared using ethyl cellulose as a backing layer and carbopol 934 as a matrix mucoadhesive layer. Patches were prepared with different loading amounts of tetracycline hydrochloride and carvacrol. The antimicrobial activity was assessed for the prepared patches using the disc-diffusion method against the yeast Candida albicans and five bacterial strains, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus aureus, and Bacillus bronchispti. In this work, we highlighted the possibility of occurrence of a synergistic action between carvacrol and tetracycline. The best formulation was selected based on microbiological tests, drug release, ex-vivo mucoadhesive performance, and swelling index. Physical characteristics of the selected
Moisture vapor transmitting wound dressings are described which comprise (a) a conformable backing layer which has an adhesive on one of its surfaces and in which at least one of the backing layer and adhesive layer is continuous so as to provide a barrier both to bacteria and to liquid water when the dressing is in place on a wound and (b) a low wound adherency absorbent pad positioned on the adhesive side of the backing layer. The area of the pad is less than that of the backing layer so that an adhesive margin remains exposed on two, or preferably four, sides of the pad so that the backing layer may be adhered to the skin surrounding the wound area. The wound dressings have a moisture vapor transmission rate of from 500 to 2000 grams/square meter/24 hours at 37.5 C. and 100% to 10% relative humidity difference. Materials for use in the dressings and processes for manufacture of the dressings are also described.
0088]More specifically, a new material for reducing the linear expansion coefficient of the backing layer is mixed in the backing layer as thermal effect reducing means for reducing a thermal effect caused by the difference in linear expansion coefficient between the backing layer an the substrate of the cMUT chip. The new material is a third material different from the metal (for example, tungsten, ferrite, Pt, ceramic fine particle, etc.) and the resin (for example, polyamide resin, epoxy resin, copolymer of vinyl chloride and vinyl acetate, rubber, etc.) which constitute the backing layer. The third material is formed of glass-like material containing silica (SiO2) as a main component, and it may be glass fiber or the like, for example. The new material has a linear expansion coefficient of about 0.5 ppm/° C. (in the case of quartz glass) or about 9 ppm/° C. (in the case of general glass), and thus the linear expansion coefficient of the backing layer can be reduced as a whole. The linear ...
The aim of this study was to formulate and evaluate microencapsulated controlled release preparations of a highly water/soluble drug, salbutamol sulphate by (water in oil) in oil emulsion technique using ethyl cellulose as the retardant material. Various processing and formulation parameters such as drug/polymer ratio, stirring speed, volume of processing medium were optimized to maximize the entrapment. The release of salbutamol sulphate from ethyl cellulose microsphere was compared and possible release mechanism proposed. Microspheres were prepared by water in oil emulsion technique using acetonitrile/dichloromethane (1:1 ratio) solvent system. Span 80 was used as the dispersing agent and n-hexane was added to harden the microspheres. The prepared microspheres were characterized for their micromeritic properties and drug loading, as well as compatibility by infrared spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray powder diffractometry and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

How Can Mesothelioma Pain Be Treated With the Use of Medication?. One of the main ways by which mesothelioma pain can be treated is with the use of proper medication.. However,the type of medicine and the way the medicine is given depend on the type and cause of pain. For example, chronic pain is best relieved by methods that deliver a steady dose of pain medicine over a long period of time, such as a patch that releases medicine through the skin or slow-release oral tablets. On the other hand, breakthrough pain {Breakthrough pain is flare of pain that happens even though you are taking pain medicine regularly for persistent pain. Its called breakthrough pain because it "breaks through" the pain relief you get from the regular pain medicine ...

Children with ROHHAD are seemingly normal before the rapid-onset weight gain, making the diagnosis even more challenging to parents and health care personnel. Between 1.5 and 7 years of age, these children begin to manifest abnormalities that will evolve into the features of ROHHAD. Most commonly, the first sign is dramatic (often 20-30 pounds) and rapid (over 6 to 12 months) weight gain with associated abnormal increase in hunger (hyperphagia). This rapid-onset obesity is considered a sign of hypothalamic dysfunction (abnormality of the endocrine system). Other hypothalamic abnormalities may not be detected at the time of the rapid weight gain, but will be identified any time from months to years following the rapid-onset obesity. These other hypothalamic/endocrine abnormalities may include inability to maintain normal water balance in the body (leading to abnormally high or low sodium levels), high prolactin levels, low thyroid hormone, early or late puberty, and low cortisol among other ...
Women must be surgically sterile, 2 years postmenopausal, or, if of childbearing potential, using a medically accepted method of birth control (ie, barrier method with spermicide, steroidal contraceptive [oral, transdermal, implanted, or injected contraceptives must be used in conjunction with a barrier method], or intrauterine device [IUD]) and agree to continued use of this method for the duration of this study ...
Whatever the exact definition, practically BTcP is a transient exacerbation of pain that occurs despite well-controlled background pain, by giving around the clock opioid administration able to provide at least mild analgesia [24]. It is distinguishable from background pain by being transient or episodic and breaking through the stable, controlled chronic background pain. About the pain features, it can manifest itself as somatic, visceral, neuropathic, or mixed pain, and baseline pain may have the same classification or a different classification. According to this information, the phenomenon of BTcP should be expected in about 70 % of patients, despite receiving effective regular opioids in doses of ≥60 mg/day of oral morphine equivalents, able to provide acceptable background analgesia with a mild pain intensity for most hours of the day [31]. See Sect. 1 ...

ABSTRAL (fentanyl) sublingual tablets are indicated for the management of breakthrough pain in cancer patients 18 years of age and older who are already receiving and who are tolerant to opioid therapy for their underlying persistent cancer pain. Patients considered opioid tolerant are those who are taking around-theclock medicine consisting of at least 60 mg of oral morphine daily, or at least 25 mcg of transdermal fentanyl/hour, or at least 30 mg of oral oxycodone daily, or at least 8 mg of oral hydromorphone daily or at least 25 mg oral oxymorphone daily, or an equianalgesic dose of another opioid medication daily for a week or longer. Patients must remain on around-the-clock opioids when taking ABSTRAL ...

PAIN IN THE DYING PHASE. When the patient is no longer able to swallow oral morphine, change to:. • Continuous diamorphine (or morphine) infusion via a syringe driver (see Relative doses of Opiods).. • Prescribe a PRN dose of subcutaneous diamorphine (or morphine) for breakthrough pain one sixth of the total 24- hour dose of diamorphine. This can be given as frequently as necessary and increased in proportion to any increase in 24-hour dose.. • If the patient is still in pain and the PRN diamorphine (or morphine) has been found to be effective, the 24-hour dose of subcutaneous diamorphine (or morphine) may be increased by the sum of the PRN doses given in the previous 24 hours. For patients requiring rapidly escalating doses of opioids, contact the Specialist Palliative Care Team for advice.. ...

In recent years, efforts were undertaken to achieve better CP management, e.g. clinical research, new treatment modalities, development of guidelines, education and focus on implementation. The aim of the present study was to compare the prevalence and characteristics of pain and breakthrough pain (BTP) between cross-sectional studies conducted in 2008 and 2014. It was hypothesized that an improvement in pain control would be observed the years in ...
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is administered legally by doctors during surgical procedures, or in small doses during colonoscopies and endoscopies, said Dr. Charles Argoff, a pain specialist at Albany Medical Center. It may also be used, typically in a transdermal patch that releases the painkiller slowly, for patients with severe pain who need round-the-clock relief and have already developed a tolerance to less potent opioids, he said. Other forms of fentanyl are used for cancer patients who experience breakthrough pain despite being on other medications.. But when fentanyl is mixed with illicit drugs and injected, the potent pain reliever gets to the bloodstream fast. Federal health agencies estimate that it is 50 to 100 times stronger than heroin.. That means it is more likely to kill, especially if users do not know what theyre ...
Do not touch the sticky side of the patch or the gel. Fentanyl can be quickly absorbed through the eyes and mouth and can be extremely dangerous. If you do touch the sticky side of the patch or gel, let your nurse or doctor know right away and rinse the area with large amounts of water. Do not use soaps or other cleansers. Check with your doctor at regular times while using fentanyl. Be sure to report any side effects. After you have been using this medicine for awhile, "breakthrough" pain may occur more often than usual, and it may not be relieved by your regular dose of medicine. If this occurs, do not increase the amount of fentanyl skin patch or other narcotic that you are using without first checking with your doctor. This medicine will add to the effects of alcohol and other CNS depressants. CNS depressants are medicines that slow down the nervous system, which may cause drowsiness or make you less alert. Some examples ...

Tell your doctor or health care professional if your pain does not go away, if it gets worse, or if you have new or a different type of pain. You may develop tolerance to the medicine. Tolerance means that you will need a higher dose of the medicine for pain relief. Tolerance is normal and is expected if you take the medicine for a long time. If you need to use more than 4 units per day, call your doctor or health care professional. If you do not finish the whole unit each time you have an episode of breakthrough pain or your if pain is not relieved after finishing a whole unit, call your doctor or health care professional.. Do not suddenly stop taking your medicine because you may develop a severe reaction. Your body becomes used to the medicine. This does NOT mean you are addicted. Addiction is a behavior related to getting and using a drug for a non-medical reason. If you have pain, you ...

When I saw Gini at the clinic in early February, things were so stable we decided I didnt need to come back for three months. Unfortunately, I didnt realize the effect some treatment changes would have on my pain in the interim. In late January, after a short chemo break, I was switched to daily Tamoxifen pills. My late January CT scan found a tumour on my right femoral neck that put me at risk of fracture and was subsequently treated with radiation. In March, I started a double-blind clinical trial where I was either continuing my bone-building Pamidronate treatment (but every four weeks instead of three) or I was getting Zometa, a similar drug. Put them all together and my pain, or rather my pains, increased. I was taking long-acting hydromorphone contin (a narcotic), Lyrica (for nerve pain) and Naprosyn (an anti-inflammatory) as well as hydromorphone (AKA Dilaudid) for breakthrough pain. I was taking ...
Pain is one of the most feared symptoms for patients who are facing end-of-life issues. Management of this pain often requires high doses of morphine. Unfortunately, physicians are reluctant to prescribe these high doses because of concerns about side effects and causing premature deaths. Bercovitch and associates studied the characteristics of patients requiring high-dose morphine for pain control, the incidence of side effects and the impact on survival for patients at the end of life.. For two years, the charts of all patients admitted to a hospice program were reviewed. All patients and their families were interviewed on admission, and a drug history and complete pain assessment were obtained. Data collected included demographics, site of tumor and metastatic spread, characteristics of pain in association with morphine dose, need for breakthrough pain ...
The focus of most of modern Western medicine is to heal patients when they are sick. Recently, however, there has been a greater emphasis on improving the quality of life of patients when that is all that can be accomplished. The American Medical Association and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation funded an entire program for physicians, the Education in Palliative and End-of-Life Care Project, to emphasize care of patients near the end of life.1. The article by Drs. Clary and Lawson in this issue of American Family Physician is a useful and concise source of information on symptom management in patients at the end of life.2 Consistent emphasis on pain relief is crucial. There are a variety of studies showing that pain can severely impair patients quality of life, as well as put them at risk of depression and suicide.3 For constant pain, it is most effective to use both a continuous long-acting pain medication to prevent pain ...
The celiac plexus is a nerve bundle located in the upper abdomen behind the pancreas and near the aorta. It connects the pancreas, gallbladder, intestines, liver and stomach with the brain and spinal cord. The nerve block can help a patient avoid breakthrough pain.. The celiac plexus nerve block is a procedure that damages the celiac plexus nerves so they can not send pain messages to the brain. It is a procedure used for patients with intense abdominal pain such as chronic pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer. ...
There are cases where chronic severe Migraine (or in my case Cluster Headaches) can only be treated with traditional long acting opiates. I have been suffering with Cluster Headaches AND Migraines for 22 years (since I was 18). I get the worst of both worlds. Its quiet unfair... kind of like a bald man with dandruff!  Neurologists have argued and disagreed on whether I get one or the other for too many years until an ER visit that lasted about 6 hours of treatment, witnessing the entire process, deemed I get both since I definitely have real Clusters but get aura hours after the initial attach starts. After 22 years and more doctors than I can count trying to treat me without success the ONLY relief I have ever received was with opiates. The pain gets so intense that I have lesions in my brain from stroking not being treated soon enough. I am now on Morphine Sulfate ER all the time and a short acting opiate for breakthrough pain. While nothing will make the ...

Defects in axonal transport are implicated in a range of neurodegenerative diseases, including ALS, Huntingtons disease, and Alzheimers disease. Here, we describe for the first time a complete mechanism for how axonal transport defects may lead to severe neurodegeneration. This mechanism shows how extracellular signaling from mSOD1-expressing glia acts via neuronal receptors to activate intracellular stress signals, causing downstream activation of stress responses in the neuronal nucleus.. We used in vivo, in vitro, and live-cell imaging assays to fully characterize the axonal transport defects in the SOD1G93A model of familial ALS. We also found that mouse models with impaired dynein function, Loa and Tgdynamitin, show similarly decreased efficiencies of retrograde transport but, unlike the mSOD1 model, develop only mild neurodegeneration. Therefore, the slowing of neurotrophic factor signaling is not sufficient to induce pronounced neuronal loss. Instead, in the mSOD1 model in the early ...

This year marks a turning point in cancer, as long-sought efforts to unleash the immune system against tumors are paying off-even if the future remains a question mark.. Historys path is unchartable when its not yet past but present, when we are still standing in the middle of it. Thats what made Sciences selection of this years Breakthrough of the Year such a topic of internal debate, even anxiety. In celebrating cancer immunotherapy-harnessing the immune system to battle tumors-did we risk hyping an approach whose ultimate impact remains unknown? Were we irresponsible to label as a breakthrough a strategy that has touched a tiny fraction of cancer patients and helped only some of them? What do we mean when we call something a breakthrough, anyway?. Ultimately, we concluded, cancer immunotherapy passes the test. It does so because this year, clinical trials have cemented its potential in patients and swayed even the skeptics. The field hums with stories of ...

The first FDA-designated breakthrough therapy has been approved by US regulators, it was announced last week. Roches Gazyva (obinutuzumab) coupled with chlorambucil was given the green light for the treatment of blood cancer chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, and industry commentators expect the orphan drug to be a worthy successor to blockbuster drug Rituxan.. With Rituxans patent expiry looming, it had been important for Roche to score a new potential blockbuster to take over the reigns. With Gazyva, Roche may well have one on their hands, as analysts have predicted peak sales between $1.5bn and $2.5bn.. Since Gazyva is the first drug with breakthrough therapy designation to receive FDA approval, there has been much interest around the impact that the BTD had on accelerating the drugs approval. "This approval reflects the promise of the Breakthrough Therapy Designation program, allowing us to work collaboratively with companies to expedite the development, ...
Novartis drug Promacta has won another breakthrough status from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), setting up the Swiss pharma firm for a promising start to 2018.. The news comes hot on the heels of FDA breakthrough status for the companys breast cancer drug Kisqali.. For rare blood disorder drug Promacta (eltrombopag), the status was awarded for its use in combination with standard immunosuppressive therapy for the treatment of patients with severe aplastic anaemia (SAA) as a first-line therapy.. Samit Hirawat, head of Novartis oncology global drug development, said: "Promacta is a promising medicine that, if approved for first-line use in SAA, may redefine the standard of care for patients with this rare and serious bone marrow condition.. "We will continue to work closely with the FDA to make Promacta available to patients with SAA who are new to treatment as soon as possible.". Known as Revolade in most countries outside the US, Promacta gained its ...

My dad told me this story. When he was a kid, the family moved to a new house. After living there about three months, he distinctly remembers that one night they heard a loud bang, and the next morning, he and his siblings found a bullet hole in the mailbox. It was a great mystery for all the children as they wondered why a random person would shoot at their mailbox. The mystery went unsolved. More than 40 years later, my grandfather developed rapid-onset dementia and had to be put in aged care. As my dad and my uncle went through his paperwork and belongings, trying to sort everything out, they came across several old documents which shed light on some interesting events that occurred at the time of his familys move. My grandfather, despite being a Catholic and never missing a Sunday mass, was not a very nice man. When my grandfather sold the previous property, a farmhouse, before moving to the new one, he deliberately neglected to tell the new owner of the farmhouse that the small piece of ...

Understanding the causes of breakthrough in filtration is essential worldwide. Breakthrough links many factors, such as filtration flow rate and flow rate changes, temperature, chemical dosing, raw water quality, etc. These factors can affect floc strength, which has been recognized as one of the most important factors in filter efficiency and particle breakthrough, related to Cryptosporidium outbreaks. This research aims to investigate particle breakthrough related to temperature and chemical dosing. Experiments were conducted to establish the relationship between temperature and chemical dosing changes to floc strength and particle breakthrough. The temperature was set at a series range as 5 °C, 15 °C and 25 °C. Each was combined with a series of Al dose changes. A laser particle counter was installed to assess the particle breakthrough online. ζ potential and turbidity were measured before (after ...
Peter, Sandy and Frank - as well as their partners Annie, Dermot and Hayley - have always promised their children they will not need to worry about Huntingtons as there will be a treatment in time for them. Peter told the BBC: "Im the luckiest person in the world to be sitting here on the verge of having that.. "Hopefully that will be made available to everybody, to my brothers and sisters and fundamentally my children.". He, along with the other trial participants, can continue taking the drug as part of the next wave of trials. They will set out to show whether the disease can be slowed, and ultimately prevented, by treating Huntingtons disease carriers before they develop any symptoms.. Prof John Hardy, who was awarded the Breakthrough Prize for his work on Alzheimers, told the BBC: "I really think this is, potentially, the biggest breakthrough in neurodegenerative disease in the past 50 years.. "That sounds like hyperbole - in a year I might be embarrassed by saying that ...

While this progress is great, one has to ask: What are the implications of the immense popularity of the new Breakthrough Therapy designation? Can the FDA provide the needed resources to keep up this pace? And, importantly, will the Breakthrough Therapy designation soon become the norm in drug development? If so, will its value eventually be diminished in the eyes of the media and patients?. Almost exactly 30 years ago, Congress approved the Orphan Drug Act (ODA) to encourage the development of treatments for the millions of Americans with rare diseases. At that time, it was one of the hottest trends in the drug development market and the ODA clearly drove innovation in orphan and rare diseases, where there was little action and incentive before. In the decade before the law was passed, only 10 new drugs were developed by the industry for people with rare diseases. Since 1983, more than 2,700 potential treatments have entered the development process as "orphan products" and ...

Administration of drugs directly into the respiratory tree first was proposed a long time ago. Surfactant is the paradigmatic example of such therapies. Many other drugs have been used in the same way and further compounds are under investigation for this aim. In the last two decades, despite the wide number of drugs available for direct lung administration in critical care patients, few controlled data exist regarding their use in neonates and infants. This review will focus on drugs clinically available in a critical care setting for neonates and infants, including bronchodilators, pulmonary vasodilators, anti-inflammatory agents, mucolytics, resuscitative anti-infective agents, surfactants and other drugs. We provide an evidence-based comprehensive review of drugs available for intratracheal administration in paediatric and neonatal critical care and we examine possible advantages and risks for each proposed indication.. ...

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed battery cells capable of charging in under a minute, an astonishing 100 times faster than a regular rechargable battery.. The breakthrough could revolutionize electric car battery technology and pave the way for ultra-fast charging electric vehicles in as little as two years.. The discovery came when MIT researchers Byoungwoo Kang and Gerbrand Ceder found out how to get a common lithium compound to release and take up lithium ions in a matter of seconds. According to Ceder, the compound, known as lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4), has a crystal structure that creates "perfectly sized tunnels for lithium to move through," allowing the team to reach "ridiculously fast charging rates.". ...
