It appears to act as a partial agonist at mu and kappa opioid receptors and as an antagonist at delta receptors. The lack of delta-agonist activity has been suggested to account for the observation that buprenorphine tolerance may not develop with chronic use.

Effect of morphine and naloxone on priming-induced audiogenic seizures in BALB/c mice. (1/3881)

1 Morphine (1-200 mg/kg s.c.) reduced the incidence and prolonged the latency of priming-induced audiogenic siezures in a dose-dependent manner. 2 This effect was reversed by naloxone (1 and 2 mg/kg) although naloxone was itself inactive. 3 This priming-induces seizure model may be useful in the study of tolerance and physical dependence.  (+info)

Spinal antinociceptive synergism between morphine and clonidine persists in mice made acutely or chronically tolerant to morphine. (2/3881)

Morphine (Mor) tolerance has been attributed to a reduction of opioid-adrenergic antinociceptive synergy at the spinal level. The present experiments tested the interaction of intrathecally (i.t.) administered Mor-clonidine (Clon) combinations in mice made acutely or chronically tolerant to Mor. ICR mice were pretreated with Mor either acutely (40 nmol i.t., 8 h; 100 mg/kg s.c., 4 h) or chronically (3 mg/kg s.c. every 6 h days 1 and 2; 5 mg/kg s.c. every 6 h days 3 and 4). Antinociception was detected via the hot water (52.5 degrees C) tail-flick test. After the tail-flick latencies returned to baseline levels, dose-response curves were generated to Mor, Clon, and Mor-Clon combinations in tolerant and control mice. Development of tolerance was confirmed by significant rightward shifts of the Mor dose-response curves in tolerant mice compared with controls. Isobolographic analysis was conducted; the experimental combined ED50 values were compared statistically against their respective theoretical additive ED50 values. In all Mor-pretreated groups, the combination of Mor and Clon resulted in significant leftward shifts in the dose-response curves compared with those of each agonist administered separately. In all tolerant and control groups, the combination of Mor and Clon produced an ED50 value significantly less than the corresponding theoretical additive ED50 value. Mor and Clon synergized in Mor-tolerant as well as in control mice. Spinally administered adrenergic/opioid synergistic combinations may be effective therapeutic strategies to manage pain in patients apparently tolerant to the analgesic effects of Mor.  (+info)

Discriminative stimulus effects of naltrexone after a single dose of morphine in the rat. (3/3881)

The discriminative stimulus effects of an acute morphine (MOR) --> naltrexone (NTX) combination were characterized and compared with the stimulus effects of NTX-precipitated and spontaneous withdrawal from chronic MOR administration. Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats (n = 6-8) were trained to discriminate between two drug treatments in a discrete-trial avoidance/escape procedure: MOR (10 mg./kg, s.c., 4 h) --> NTX (0.3 mg/kg, s.c., 0.25 h) versus saline (SAL, 1 ml/kg, s. c., 4 h) --> NTX (0.3 mg/kg, s.c., 0.25 h). Subjects responded only on the SAL --> NTX-appropriate lever when SAL was given 3.75 h after MOR or 3.75 h before any dose of NTX (0.3-100 mg/kg). Responding was dose dependent and MOR --> NTX-appropriate when NTX (0.01-0.1 mg/kg) followed MOR. Full MOR --> NTX-appropriate responding was dependent on the pretreatment dose and time of MOR, with full effects observed only when MOR (10 mg/kg) was given 3 to 4 h before NTX. While subjects were maintained on either 20- or 40 mg/kg/day of MOR via osmotic pump, NTX produced full dose-dependent, MOR --> NTX-appropriate responding. When the MOR-filled pumps were removed, partial MOR --> NTX-appropriate responding occurred, peaking at 6 to 12 h. The physical withdrawal signs produced by NTX after acute or during chronic MOR exposure were of smaller magnitude compared with the ones that occurred during abrupt withdrawal from chronic MOR. A qualitatively unique "withdrawal" stimulus that is dose- and time-dependent appears to be the basis of this MOR --> NTX discrimination.  (+info)

Extinction of responding maintained by timeout from avoidance. (4/3881)

The resistance to extinction of lever pressing maintained by timeout from avoidance was examined. Rats were trained under a concurrent schedule in which responses on one lever postponed shock on a free-operant avoidance (Sidman) schedule (response-shock interval = 30 s) and responses on another lever produced 2 min of signaled timeout from avoidance on a variable-ratio 15 schedule. Following extended training (106 to 363 2-hr sessions), two experiments were conducted. In Experiment 1 two different methods of extinction were compared. In one session, all shocks were omitted, and there was some weakening of avoidance but little change in timeout responding. In another session, responding on the timeout lever was ineffective, and under these conditions timeout responding showed rapid extinction. The within-session patterns produced by extinction manipulations were different than the effects of drugs such as morphine, which also reduces timeout responding. In Experiment 2 shock was omitted for many consecutive sessions. Response rates on the avoidance lever declined relatively rapidly, with noticeable reductions within 5 to 10 sessions. Extinction of the timeout lever response was much slower than extinction of avoidance in all 4 rats, and 2 rats continued responding at baseline levels for more than 20 extinction sessions. These results show that lever pressing maintained by negative reinforcement can be highly resistant to extinction. The persistence of responding on the timeout lever after avoidance extinction is not readily explained by current theories.  (+info)

Modulation of Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II activity by acute and chronic morphine administration in rat hippocampus: differential regulation of alpha and beta isoforms. (5/3881)

Calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMK II) has been shown to be involved in the regulation of opioid receptor signaling. The present study showed that acute morphine treatment significantly increased both Ca2+/calmodulin-independent and Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent activities of CaMK II in the rat hippocampus, with little alteration in the protein level of either alpha or beta isoform of CaMK II. However, chronic morphine treatment, by which rats were observed to develop apparent tolerance to morphine, significantly down-regulated both Ca2+/calmodulin-independent and Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent activities of CaMK II and differentially regulated the expression of alpha and beta isoforms of CaMK II at protein and mRNA levels. Application of naloxone or discontinuation of morphine treatment after chronic morphine administration, which induced the withdrawal syndrome of morphine, resulted in the overshoot of CaMK II (at both protein and mRNA levels) and its kinase activity. The phenomena of overshoot were mainly observed in the beta isoform of CaMK II but not in the alpha isoform. The effects of both acute and chronic morphine treatments on CaMK II could be completely abolished by the concomitant application of naloxone, indicating that the effects of morphine were achieved through activation of opioid receptors. Our data demonstrated that both acute and chronic morphine treatments could effectively modulate the activity and the expression of CaMK II in the hippocampus.  (+info)

Presynaptic inhibition of GABA(B)-mediated synaptic potentials in the ventral tegmental area during morphine withdrawal. (6/3881)

Opioids increase the firing of dopamine cells in the ventral tegmental area by presynaptic inhibition of GABA release. This report describes an acute presynaptic inhibition of GABAB-mediated IPSPs by mu- and kappa-opioid receptors and the effects of withdrawal from chronic morphine treatment on the release of GABA at this synapse. In slices taken from morphine-treated guinea pigs after washing out the morphine (withdrawn slices), a low concentration of a mu receptor agonist increased, rather than decreased, the amplitude of the GABAB IPSP. In withdrawn slices, after blocking A1-adenosine receptors with 8-cyclopentyl-1, 3-dipropylxantine, mu-opioid receptor activation inhibited the IPSP at all concentrations and increased the maximal inhibition. In addition, during withdrawal, there was a tonic increase in adenosine tone that was further increased by forskolin or D1-dopamine receptor activation, suggesting that metabolism of cAMP was the source of adenosine. The results indicate that during acute morphine withdrawal, there was an upregulation of the basal level of an opioid-sensitive adenylyl cyclase. Inhibition of this basal activity by opioids had two effects. First, a decrease in the formation of cAMP that decreased adenosine tone. This effect predominated at low mu receptor occupancy and increased the amplitude of the IPSP. Higher agonist concentrations inhibited transmitter release by both kinase-dependent and -independent pathways. This study indicates that the consequences of the morphine-induced upregulation of the cAMP cascade on synaptic transmission are dependent on the makeup of receptors and second messenger pathways present on any given terminal.  (+info)

Effects and interactions of opioids on plasma exudation induced by cigarette smoke in guinea pig bronchi. (7/3881)

The effects of opioids on cigarette smoke-induced plasma exudation were investigated in vivo in the main bronchi of anesthetized guinea pigs, with Evans blue dye as a plasma marker. Acute inhalation of cigarette smoke increased plasma exudation by 216% above air control values. Morphine, 0.1-10 mg/kg but not 30 mg/kg, inhibited the exudation but had no significant effect on substance P-induced exudation. Both 10 and 30 mg/kg of morphine increased exudation in air control animals, an effect inhibited by antihistamines but not by a tachykinin neurokinin type 1-receptor antagonist. Naloxone inhibited all morphine responses. Cigarette smoke-induced plasma exudation was inhibited by a mu-opioid-receptor agonist (DAMGO) but not by agonists at delta (DPDPE)- or kappa (U-50488H)-receptors. None of these agonists affected exudation in air control animals. DPDPE prevented the inhibition by DAMGO of cigarette smoke-induced plasma exudation, and the combination of DAMGO and DPDPE increased exudation in air control animals. Prevention of inhibition and the combination-induced increase were inhibited by antihistamines or the mast cell-stabilizing drug sodium cromoglycate. U-50488H did not alter the response to either DAMGO or DPDPE. We conclude that, in guinea pig main bronchi in vivo, mu-opioid-receptor agonists inhibit cigarette smoke-induced plasma exudation via a prejunctional mechanism. Plasma exudation induced by mu- and delta-receptor interactions is due to endogenous histamine release from mast cells.  (+info)

Morphine preconditioning attenuates neutrophil activation in rat models of myocardial infarction. (8/3881)

Previous results from our laboratory have suggested that morphine can attenuate neutrophil activation in patients with acute myocardial infarction. To elucidate if morphine preconditioning (PC) has the same effects via activation of neutrophil endopeptidase 24.11 (NEP), we measured serum levels of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), gp100MEL14 and NEP in adult Wistar rats subjected to ten different protocols (n = 10 for each) at baseline, immediately after and 2 h after morphine PC. All groups were subjected to 30 min of occlusion and 2 h of reperfusion. Similarly, morphine-induced PC was elicited by 3-min drug infusions (100 micrograms/kg) interspersed with 5-min drug-free periods before the prolonged 30-min occlusion. Infarct size (IS), as a percentage of the area at risk (AAR), was determined by triphenyltetrazolium staining. Pretreatment with morphine increased NEP activities (9.86 +/- 1.98 vs. 5.12 +/- 1.10 nmol/mg protein in control group; p < 0.001). Naloxone (mu-opioid receptor antagonist) (4.82 +/- 1.02 nmol/mg protein) and phosphoramidon (NEP inhibitor) (4.66 +/- 1.00 nmol/mg protein) inhibited morphine-activated NEP, whereas glibenclamide (ATP-sensitive potassium channel antagonist) and chelerythrine (protein kinase C inhibitor) had no effects. The ICAM-1 and gp100MEL14 of the third sampling were lowest for those with morphine PC (280 +/- 30 ng/ml and 2.2 +/- 0.7 micrograms/ml; p < 0.001), but naloxone (372 +/- 38 ng/ml and 3.8 +/- 0.9 micrograms/ml) and phosphoramidon (382 +/- 40 ng/ml and 4.2 +/- 1.1 micrograms/ml) abolished the above phenomenon. IS/AAR were definitely lowest for those with morphine PC (24 +/- 7%; p < 0.05). Morphine preconditioning increases NEP activities to attenuate shedding of gp100MEL14 and to ICAM-1 and, thus, provides myocardial protection.  (+info)

Study 1 showed that coadministration of systemic ketamine with morphine dose-dependently attenuates the development of morphine tolerance (Table 1). Study 2 found that the systemic administration of 10 mg/kg ketamine could reverse established morphine tolerance (Table 2). This is perhaps a more clinically relevant issue, because many patients have some degree of opioid tolerance. These data correlate with the earlier finding that various NMDA receptor antagonists can attenuate and reverse morphine tolerance. [2,4-6]Trujillo and Akil [13]previously studied the effect of systemic ketamine on the attenuation and reversal of morphine tolerance in rats, and they attenuated but did not reverse morphine tolerance. These authors described reversal as the inhibition of the expression of morphine tolerance, and they tested this by administering a single bolus dose of ketamine (10 mg/kg sup -1 given intraperitoneally) after morphine tolerance had been established to determine the effect on morphine ...

Plasma morphine concentration-time profiles and changes in PaCO2 were determined after morphine injection. After morphine injection, the end- tidal anesthetic dose was manipulated over the course of a 4-h observation period to account for the decline in plasma morphine concentration and to maintain an anesthetic level equivalent to 1.0 MAC isoflurane or halothane alone. Morphine decreased the MAC of halothane and isoflurane. The magnitude of MAC decrease was related to time after morphine injection and was ...

After inducing morphine tolerance in rats, the researchers tested the animals spinal cord responses to morphine, with or without resveratrol. The results showed significant enhancement of morphines effects in animals receiving resveratrol. In morphine-tolerant rats, the pain-relieving response to morphine was about 20 percent of normal. In rats receiving resveratrol, morphine responses were restored to about 60 percent of normal.. In preserving the pain-relieving effects of morphine, resveratrol appeared to work in two ways. It reversed the increase in expression of a type of neurotransmitter (N-methyl D-aspartate, or NMDA) receptors associated with morphine tolerance. Resveratrol also blocked the increase of inflammation-promoting substances, called cytokines, in rats with morphine tolerance.. The results add to other recent experimental evidence suggesting that resveratrol can maintain the pain-relieving effect of morphine. It also adds new information on how that effect may ...

Morphine administration during pregnancy causes several behavioral abnormalities in offspring animals. In the present study the effects of maternal morphine consumption on development of neural tube in Wistar rats (250-300 g) were investigated. Female rats (n = 8 were crossed with male rats and pregnant ones were treated with oral morphine (0.01, 0.05 and 0.1 mg/ml of water) until the 10th day of pregnancy. On the day 10, the animals were anesthetized by diethyle ether and the embryos were taken out surgically. The embryos were fixed in formaline 10% for a week and then cross sectional procedure performed. The sections were stained with H&E. The results showed that: administration of morphine resulted in severe reduction in neural tube development in embryos. Morphine at a dose of 0.01 mg/ml showed the maximum effect. In conclusion, it is clear that morphine consumption in pregnant rats resulted in delay in neural tube development that may be true in humans.
Morphine is a strong analgesic drug. Apart from that, morphine gives an intense, intoxicating effect. This is why it’s used for both medical and recreational purposes. Morphine is made from opium; the dried sap of the poppy plant. Opium contains a combination of opiates, including morphine.  Morphine and heroin are closely related, as morphine can be made into heroin. First, morphine is extracted from opium, followed by a chemical reaction that turns it into heroin. Therefore, heroin has a very similar effect to morphine. The main difference is that heroin passes the blood-brain barrier more easily, resulting in it kicking in faster than morphine does. In the Netherlands, morphine isn’t often used in a recreational context. However, in America, the situation is completely different. In this article, you can read about the history, usage, biochemistry and the risks of recreational use of morphine. We also discuss the mafia-like role that the pharmaceutic industry plays when it comes to

Introduction Morphine is the most effective pain-relieving drug, but it can cause unwanted side effects. Direct neuraxial administration of morphine to spinal cord not only can provide effective, reliable pain relief but also can prevent the development of supraspinal side effects. However, repeated neuraxial administration of morphine may still lead to morphine tolerance. Methods To better understand the mechanism that causes morphine tolerance, we induced tolerance in rats at the spinal cord level by giving them twice-daily injections of morphine (20 µg/10 µL) for 4 days. We confirmed tolerance by measuring paw withdrawal latencies and maximal possible analgesic effect of morphine on day 5. We then carried out phosphoproteomic analysis to investigate the global phosphorylation of spinal proteins associated with morphine tolerance. Finally, pull-down assays were used to identify phosphorylated types and sites of 14-3-3 proteins, and bioinformatics was applied to predict biological networks impacted

Due to the potential desensitization of opioid receptors the dose of morphine and nalmefene were increased stepwise (5 10 and 15 mg/kg s.c. for every two weeks). For drug combination the nalmefene dose was one-tenth of the morphine dose because this ratio is generally considered to result in a complete antagonism of antinociceptive effects of morphine [17]. The body weight of the Specnuezhenide animals and the two perpendicular diameters (a and b) were recorded every 3 days. Tumor volume (V) was calculated according to the following formula: V = (a*b*b)/2 [18]. ...
Hypothesis:. Oral morphine will produce more reliable peak plasma morphine concentrations and more reliable analgesia than codeine, which is currently the drug of choice.. Background:. Codeine is the most commonly used oral opiate for analgesia in children. Codeine is a pro-drug that requires activation by the isozyme CYP2D6. Genetically determined variations in the activity of CYP2D6 can result in inappropriately low analgesic efficacy due to inadequate conversion of the drug in poor-metabolizers and conversely, adverse reactions such as respiratory depression and death in ultra-metabolizers. In some ethnic groups as many as 40% of patients may be susceptible to concentration-dependent toxicity from greater than expected metabolism of codeine to morphine. We hypothesize that oral morphine is a feasible and safe alternative to codeine.

The efficacy of opioids in chronic pain treatment is limited because of the development of opioid tolerance. We investigated the role of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists (NMDAR Ants) in morphine analgesia and tolerance in rats. To induce the morphine tolerance, experimental rats received morphine (50 mg/kg; subcutaneously) once daily for 3 days. After the last dose of morphine was injected on day 4 and morphine tolerance was evaluated, analgesic effects of ketamine, dizocilpine (MK-801, a non-competitive NMDAR Ant), LY235959 (a competitive NMDAR Ant), cis-2,3-piperidinedicarboxylic acid (PDA, an NMDAR agonist), and morphine were estimated with 30-min-long intervals (0, 30, 60, 90, and 120 min) by the tail-flick and hot-plate algesia tests (n = 6 in each studied group). As was found, ketamine, MK-801, and LY235959 significantly attenuated the development of morphine tolerance (P < 0.05). On the other hand, PDA somewhat increased the development of this tolerance, but the ...
Super analgesia of intrathecal morphine may be related to ABCB1 (MDR1) gene polymorphism Wangjun Qin,1,* Botao Liu,2,* Ang Deng,1 Ying Liu,1 Xianglin Zhang,1 Lei Zhang1 1Department of Pharmacy, China-Japan Friendship Hospital, Beijing, China; 2Department of Pain Management, China-Japan Friendship Hospital, Beijing, China *These authors contributed equally to this work Abstract: Intrathecal morphine provides superior analgesia and minimizes side effects with ~1/300th of the oral dose necessary to achieve this effect. The conversion ratios from oral route to intrathecal route vary greatly among individuals, and this may be related with polymorphisms of the ATP-binding cassette B1 (ABCB1)/multiple drug resistance 1 (MDR1) gene encoding the transporter P-glycoprotein in the blood-brain barrier. In the case presented herein, a patient with cancer pain for over 3 months was treated with oxycodone hydrochloride prolonged-release tablets (Oxycontin) and morphine hydrochloride tablets for breakthrough pain.

A crucial issue in treating opiate addiction, a chronic relapsing disorder, is to maintain a drug-free abstinent state. Prolonged abstinence associates with mood disorders, strongly contributing to relapse. In particular, substance use disorders Show moreA crucial issue in treating opiate addiction, a chronic relapsing disorder, is to maintain a drug-free abstinent state. Prolonged abstinence associates with mood disorders, strongly contributing to relapse. In particular, substance use disorders occurring during adolescence predispose to depression later in adulthood. Using our established mouse model of opiate abstinence, we characterized emotional consequences into adulthood of morphine exposure during adolescence. Our results indicate that morphine treatment in adolescent mice has no effect on anxiety-like behaviours in adult mice, after abstinence. In contrast, morphine treatment during adolescence increases behavioural despair in adult mice. We also show that morphine exposure ...

Problem statement: The present study was performed to determine the effect of Intracerebroventricular (ICV) administration of W-7, a specific calmodulin inhibitor, on the analgesic effect and development of tolerance to antinociceptive effect of acute and chronic morphine administration respectively. Approach: This study was carried out on male wistar rats, weighing 200-250 g. For acute experimental protocol, Morphine was injected intraperitonealy in a single dose (5 mg kg-1). For chronic experimental protocol, Morphine was administered daily (15 mg kg-1 for 8 days). The threshold to thermal nociceptive stimuli was measured by tail-flick test. In acute and chronic experiments, W-7 (0.25, 0.5 and 1 μmol/rat) was injected through ICV at different paradigms. Maximal Possible Effect percentage (MPE%) was considered as analgesia index. Results: Our result showed that W-7 (0.25, 0.5 and 1 μmol/rat) injections before acute morphine administration significantly reduced the analgesic effect of
Generic Morphine Sulphate MAGNUS MR 30mg/2ml / Amps Therapeutic Class:Narcotic analgesic Composition:Magnus MR 2ml vial containing morphine sulphate 30 mg/2mlDescription:Morphine applies an agonist effect at saturable opioid receptors in the CNS and other tissues & acts as opioid analgesic. Morphine is an analgesic drug used to treat acute and chronic pain. Obesity is frequently associated with pain of various origins (e.g. arthritis, fibromyalgia, cancer), which increases the need for analgesic drugs. Obesity changes drug pharmacokinetics, and for certain drugs, specific modalities of prescription have been proposed for obese patients. However, scant data are available regarding the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of morphine in obesity. Prescription of morphine depends on pain relief but the occurrence of respiratory adverse effects correlates with obesity, and is not currently taken into account. Variations in the volume of distribution, elimination half-life and oral clearance of ...

Diabetes is one of the most common diseases in all societies including Iran. One of its important complications is the neuropathic pain, which can be relieved by opioid drugs such as morphine. Opioid therapy is restricted due to development of tolerance and physical or mental dependence. In this study, the effect of diabetes on morphine analgesia and development of morphine tolerance and dependence was investigated. Experimental diabetes was induced by alloxan (120 mg/kg, s.c.) in rats. Morphine sulfate (7 mg/kg, i.p.) application for 5 days developed tolerance in animals. On 5th day, 30 min after the injection of morphine, the acute and chronic pain was evaluated in diabetic and non-diabetic animals using hot plate and formalin test. In addition, withdrawal signs (jumping, chewing, urine and feces) were recorded for ten minutes using naloxone (2 mg/kg, s.c.). The results showed that the anti-nociceptive effect of morphine for acute pain markedly reduced, but slightly enhanced for chronic pain model.

Morphine is an extremely strong opiate analgesic drug and is the most important active agent in opium and the prototypical opioid.. It is also a natural endocrine product in humans and other animals. Like other opioids, diacetylmorphine or commonly know as heroin, morphine targets directly the central nervous system (CNS) to alleviate pain, and at synapses of the nucleus accumbens in particular.. Morphine is extremely addictive when compared to other substances; physical, tolerance and psychological dependences build up very rapidly. Withdrawal from morphine causes nausea, tearing, yawning, chills, and sweating lasting up to three days. Morphine crosses the placental barrier, and babies born to morphine-using mothers go through withdrawal.. Addictive drugs, for instance Morphine trigger the brains reward systems.. The promise of reward is very powerful, causing the individual to yearn for Morphine and to center his or her attention activities on the taking of Morphine. The capacity to ...
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.. Patients complete a pain questionnaire over 1 week before undergoing radiofrequency ablation (RFA). Patients also complete questionnaires about pain, physical performance, quality of life (QOL), and anxiety at baseline.. Bone metastases are removed by radiofrequency ablation (RFA). After surgery, patients receive acetaminophen and patient-controlled analgesic (PCA) morphine sulfate. PCA morphine sulfate continues with a dose increase of 50% bolus every 24 hours. Patients with maximum pain less than or equal to that at inclusion receive standard morphine sulfate therapy instead.. Data concerning the total dose of PCA morphine sulfate; minimum, average, and maximum pain intensity; side effects and complications of RFA; and total dose of morphine sulfate (or equivalent) is collected daily.. Pain is assessed at 4 and 8 weeks after RFA. Patients complete follow-up questionnaires about physical performance, QOL, and anxiety at 12 weeks. Patients also undergo a CT ...

Methods Effect of morphine treatment on acute pancreatitis in caerulein, L-arginine and ethanol-palmitoleic acid models was evaluated after induction of the disease. Inflammatory response, gut permeability and bacterial translocation were compared. Experiments were repeated in mu (µ) opioid receptor knockout mice (MORKO) and in wild-type mice in the presence of opioid receptor antagonist naltrexone to evaluate the role of µ-opioid receptors in morphines effect on acute pancreatitis. Effect of morphine treatment on pathways activated during pancreatic regeneration like sonic Hedgehog and activation of embryonic transcription factors like pdx-1 and ptf-1 were measured by immunofluorescence and quantitative PCR. ...
The present study was designed to determine whether the p53 tumor-suppressor protein is involved in the development of antinociceptive tolerance to morphine. When the doses of morphine (mg/kg per injection) were subcutaneously given into mice as pretreatment twice daily for 2 days (first day (30) and second day (60)), intrathecal (i.t.) administration of morphine (0.1nmol) was inactive due to antinociceptive tolerance in the 0.5% formalin test on the third day. Tolerance to i.t. morphine was significantly suppressed by i.t. injection of pifithrin-alpha (1 and 10nmol), an inhibitor of p53 activation, benzyloxycarbonyl-Val-Ala-Asp(OMe)-fluoromethylketone (Z-VAD-fmk) (1 and 10nmol), a non-selective caspase inhibitor, or N(G)-nitro-l-arginine methyl ester (l-NAME) (2 and 20nmol), a non-selective inhibitor of nitric oxide synthase, 5min before each morphine treatment during the induction, with none given on the test day. Moreover, p53 expression in the spinal cord had increased significantly 14h ...

Recent studies have sought to reveal the mechanism of opioid receptors and neuroinflammation by observing morphological changes of cells in the rat spinal cord. This work proposes a high-content screening (HCS) based computational method, HCS-Morph, for predicting neuroinflammation in morphine tolerance to facilitate the development of tolerance therapy using immunostaining images for astrocytes, microglia, and neurons in the spinal cord. HCS-Morph first extracts numerous HCS-based features of cellular phenotypes. Next, an inheritable bi-objective genetic algorithm is used to ...

States of abnormal pain induced by injuries to peripheral nerves share common features with opioid antinociceptive tolerance including mechanical and thermal hypersensitivity. Sustained administration of morphine in humans and in animals induces a state of abnormal pain (i.e., hyperalgesia) and may be associated with the development opioid antinociceptive tolerance. Persistent neuropathic pain states and opioid induced abnormal pain require descending facilitation arising from the rostral ventromedial medulla (RVM). Cholecystokinin (CCK), a pronociceptive peptide, may be up-regulated following opioid treatment and nerve injury in the brain and spinal cord. Therefore, it is hypothesized that CCK in the RVM may be up-regulated by sustained opioid administration and my consequently drive descending pain facilitatory mechanisms to produce hypersensitivity and antinociceptive tolerance.Acute systemic morphine administration produced a potentiation of CCK release in the RVM as measured using ...

During perfusion with Mg2+-free ACSF, an enhancement of epileptiform discharges was found in the EC of slices from prenatally morphine-exposed male rats. A submaximal tetanic stimulation (2x50 Hz/1 s) in control slices elicited LTP at the Schaffer collateral-CA1 synapses, but neither LTP nor LTD was evoked at the perforant path-DG synapses. In slices from prenatally morphine-exposed adult male rats, long-term potentiation of synaptic transmission was not observed ...
Opium has a long ancient history of being used as a pain reliever. It has been used as back as 3500 BC. Slowly by the time of the American civil war, the morphine dependency was noticed, and therefore the severe side effects were studied.. Morphine is available in oral and injectable forms and is only prescribed by doctors if they experience a tremendous amount of pain.. How does morphine affect the body?. Short term side effects of morphine on the body. The side effects of the usage of morphine depend on the dosage, the strength, and how long you have been using the substance. The possible short-term side effects of morphine are:. ...
exon 3 (mE3M mice), while the other two selectively truncated C-terminal tails encoded by either exon 4 (mE4M mice) or exon 7 (mE7M mice). Studies of these mice revealed divergent roles for the C termini in morphine-induced behaviors, highlighting the importance of C-terminal variants in complex morphine actions. In mE7M-B6 mice, the exon 7-associated truncation diminished morphine tolerance and reward without altering physical dependence, whereas the exon 4-associated truncation in mE4M-B6 mice facilitated morphine tolerance and reduced morphine dependence without affecting morphine reward. mE7M-B6 mutant mice lost morphine-induced receptor desensitization in the brain stem and hypothalamus, consistent with exon 7 involvement in morphine tolerance. In cell-based studies, exon 7-associated variants shifted the bias of several mu opioids toward β-arrestin 2 over G protein activation compared with the exon 4-associated variant, suggesting an interaction of exon 7-associated C-terminal tails with ...
Scientists studying induced nerve injury in rodents have found that the analgesic effects of morphine can decline over time. When morphine is used in combination with carbamazepine, which prevents epileptic seizures, this loss of drug efficacy may be reversed.. There has been mixed efficacy in general using opioids to treat neuropathic pain. The pain relief brought about by morphine can diminish over time. In this study, when carbamazepine was added to the morphine regimen, opioid induced hyperalgesia was reversed. As reported in PLOS ONE, the combination of drugs administered to rodents showed that the dampening of the analgesic effects of morphine on neuropathic pain behavior in vivo can be countered with the addition of CBZ..

TY - JOUR. T1 - Thermal sensitivity as a measure of spontaneous morphine withdrawal in mice. AU - Balter,Rebecca E.. AU - Dykstra,Linda A.. PY - 2013/5/1. Y1 - 2013/5/1. N2 - Introduction: Opioid withdrawal syndrome is a critical component of opioid abuse and consists of a wide array of symptoms including increases in pain sensitivity (hyperalgesia). A reliable preclinical model of hyperalgesia during opioid withdrawal is needed to evaluate possible interventions to alleviate withdrawal. The following study describes a method for assessing increases in thermal sensitivity on the hotplate in a mouse model of spontaneous morphine withdrawal. Methods: C57BL/6J mice received 5.5. days of 30, 56, or 100. mg/kg morphine or saline (s.c., twice daily). In Experiment I, thermal sensitivity data were collected at baseline and at 8, 24, 32, 48. h and 1. week following the final injection. Thermal sensitivity was assessed by examining latency to respond on a hotplate across a range of temperatures (50, 52, ...
In this study we used viral-mediated gene transfer and epitope tagging to examine the effects of acute opiate administration on the localization of wild-type and mutant opioid receptors in physiologically relevant nucleus accumbens neurons in vivo. Under the conditions used, recombinant receptors were expressed in widely separated neurons, allowing us to resolve individual receptor-expressing cell bodies and associated processes by light microscopy. We also used immunoelectron microscopy to examine at higher resolution the effects of morphine on the density and distribution of endogenously expressed MOR within specific subcellular compartments in the same population of neurons.. Our studies of receptor localization in cell bodies support previous observations (namely, that acute morphine administration fails to induce detectable internalization in MOR in this compartment; Sternini et al., 1996; Keith et al., 1998; Trafton et al., 2000; He et al., 2002). The present results also indicate that the ...
Morphine-induced hyperalgesia (MIH) is a severe adverse effect accompanying repeated morphine treatment, causing a paradoxical decrease in nociceptive threshold. Previous reports associated MIH with a decreased expression of the Cl- extruder KCC2 in the superficial dorsal horn (SDH) of the spinal cord, weakening spinal GABAA/glycine-mediated postsynaptic inhibition. Here, we tested whether the administration of small molecules enhancing KCC2, CLP257 and its pro-drug CLP290, may counteract MIH. MIH was typically expressed within 6-8 days of morphine treatment. Morphine-treated rats exhibited decreased withdrawal threshold to mechanical stimulation and increased vocalizing behavior to subcutaneous injections. Chloride extrusion was impaired in SDH neurons measured as a depolarizing shift in E GABA under Cl- load. Delivering CLP257 to spinal cord slices obtained from morphine-treated rats was sufficient to restore Cl- extrusion capacity in SDH neurons. In vivo co-treatment with morphine and oral ...
The effects described below are common to all morphine-containing products.. Central Nervous System. The principal actions of therapeutic value of morphine are analgesia and sedation (i.e., sleepiness and anxiolysis).. The precise mechanism of the analgesic action is unknown. However, specific CNS opiate receptors and endogenous compounds with morphine-like activity have been identified throughout the brain and spinal cord and are likely to play a role in the expression of analgesic effects.. Morphine produces respiratory depression by direct action on brain stem respiratory centers. The mechanism of respiratory depression involves a reduction in the responsiveness of the brain stem respiratory centers to increases in carbon dioxide tension, and to electrical stimulation.. Morphine depresses the cough reflex by direct effect on the cough center in the medulla. Antitussive effects may occur with doses lower than those usually required for analgesia. Morphine causes miosis, even in total darkness. ...
FDA remains committed to taking enforcement actions against unapproved drugs in an effort to ensure that drugs used by patients are safe and effective, while at the same time ensuring that such actions do not impose an undue burden on patients. Currently, there are no approved morphine sulfate oral solution 20 mg/ml products being marketed in the U.S. FDA has heard from the pain management community that the impending market removal of unapproved morphine sulfate oral solution 20 mg/ml products announced in the Warning Letters would impose unacceptable hardship on palliative care patients, their families and caregivers. In light of this information, FDA will extend the enforcement discretion set forth in the Warning Letters to ensure that palliative care patients have access to morphine sulfate oral solution 20 mg/ml. The period of enforcement discretion will be extended until 180 days after any firm receives approval for a morphine sulfate oral solution 20 mg/ml product or if FDA determines ...
Morphine is an alkaloid from the plant extracts of opium poppy. Although morphine is highly effective for the treatment of pain, it is also known to be intensely addictive. We now know that the most important brain-reward circuit involves dopamine (DA) -containing neurons in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) of the midbrain and their target areas in the limbic forebrain, in particular, the nucleus accumbens (NAc) and frontal regions of cerebral cortex. Morphine can cause indirect excitation of VTA dopamine neurons by reducing inhibitory synaptic transmission mediated by GABAergic neurons. The chronic use of morphine is characterized by adaptive changes in neurons and neuronal communication; such adaptations (e.g., superactivation of adenylyl cyclase) must underlie altered behaviour associated with morphine dependence and withdrawal syndrome, as well as drug-induced craving and relapse to drug use ...
Medical management of newborn infants often necessitates recurrent painful procedures, which may alter nociceptive pathways during a critical developmental period and adversely effect neuropsychological outcomes. To mitigate the effects of repeated painful stimuli, opioid administration for peri-procedural analgesia and ICU (intensive care unit) sedation is common in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit). A growing body of basic and animal evidence suggests potential long-term harm associated with neonatal opioid therapy. Morphine increases apoptosis in human microglial cells, and animal studies demonstrate long-term changes in behavior, brain function, and spatial recognition memory following morphine exposure. This comprehensive review examines existing preclinical and clinical evidence on the long-term impacts of neonatal pain and opioid therapy.
In December 1804, Friedrich Sertürner first discovered morphine as the first alkaloid derived from the opium poppy in Paderborn, Germany. Sertürner named the drug as morphium after the Greek god Morpheus because it provides a feeling of sleepiness.. He administered the drug to himself, along with three young boys, three dogs, and a mouse. Unfortunately, he and the boys almost died because of morphine. In 1817, the Sertürner and Company first marketed morphine to the general public as a pain reliever. They claimed that the drug can even cure opium and alcohol addiction.. However, in 1822 morphine was first used a poison in France when Dr. Edme Castaing was convicted of using the drug to his patient.. Five years later, in 1827, commercial productions of morphine become rampant in Darmstadt, Germany under the pharmaceutical company Merck. Sales from morphine contributed a lot to the early growth of their company.. On the other hand, in 1850, Alexander Wood experimented with the drug and injected ...
Animal studies remain an essential part of drug discovery since in vitro models are not capable of describing the complete living organism. We developed and qualified a microchip electrophoresis-electrochemical detection (MCE-EC) method for rapid analysis of morphine in mouse plasma using a commercial MCE-EC device. Following liquid-liquid extraction (LLE), we achieved within-run precision of 3.7 and 4.5% (coefficient of variation, CV, n = 6) and accuracy of 106.9% and 100.7% at biologically relevant morphine concentrations of 5 and 20 mu M in plasma, respectively. The same method was further challenged by morphine detection in mouse brain homogenates with equally good within-run precision (7.8% CV, n = 5) at 1 mu M concentration. The qualified method was applied to analyze a set of plasma and brain homogenate samples derived from a behavioral animal study. After intraperitoneal administration of 20 mg/kg morphine hydrochloride, the detected morphine concentrations in plasma were between 6.7 and ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Precipitated and conditioned withdrawal in morphine-treated rats. AU - Becker, Ginger L.. AU - Gerak, Lisa R.. AU - Li, Jun Xu. AU - Koek, Wouter. AU - France, Charles P.. PY - 2010/3/1. Y1 - 2010/3/1. N2 - Rationale: Stimuli that are paired with opioid withdrawal can themselves produce effects similar to withdrawal that might promote relapse. Objective: This study compared precipitated and conditioned withdrawal and tested whether withdrawal is modified by clonidine or morphine. Methods: Morphine-treated rats (10 mg/kg/12 h) received naloxone (3.2 mg/kg) in a novel environment (conditioned stimuli [CS]). Other rats received naloxone in the absence of the CS. Body weight and observable signs were used to measure withdrawal. Results: Naloxone produced weight loss and withdrawal signs in morphine-treated rats. Following pairings of the CS and naloxone, the CS alone had effects similar to naloxone; conditioned withdrawal was greater after three naloxone/CS pairings, as compared to ...
Objective(s) Opioid abuse is still remained a major mental health problem, a criminal legal issue and may cause ischemic brain changes including stroke and brain edema. In the present study, we investigated whether spontaneously withdrawal syndrome might affect stroke outcomes. Materials and Methods Addiction was induced by progressive incremental doses of morphine over 7 days. Behavioral signs of withdrawal were observed 24, 48 and 72 hr after morphine deprivation and total withdrawal score was determined. Cerebral ischemia was induced 18-22 hr after the last morphine injection by placing a natural clot into the middle cerebral artery (MCA). Neurological deficits were evaluated at 2, 24 and 48 hr after ischemia induction, and infarct size and brain edema were determined at 48 hr after stroke. Results Morphine withdrawal animals showed a significant increase in total withdrawal score and decrease of weight gain during the 72 hr after the last morphine injection. Compared to the addicted and control

Background: Paracetamol is widely used for postoperative analgesia. The effect is well documented in minor and moderate extensive surgery, but the effect of paracetamol as an adjunct to opioids in major abdominal surgery is less examined.. Methods: Seventy-eight patients scheduled for elective, benign, and abdominal hysterectomy were included in a prospective, randomized, double-blind, parallel group, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the effect of rectal paracetamol in conjunction with intravenous patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) morphine. Paracetamol 1000 mg or placebo suppositories were given four times daily during the 60-h study period. I.V. morphine was administered via a PCA pump, limited to maximum of 12 mg h−1. Morphine consumption, pain and morphine-related adverse effects were recorded. A single-point analysis was comprised of serum concentrations of paracetamol and morphine.. Results: Sixty patients were evaluated: 30 in each group. A 16.6% reduction in overall-accumulated ...
In slices of rat brain cortex preincubated with (−)-3H-noradrenaline, the influence of morphine and naloxone on the efflux of tritium was investigated. The spontaneous outflow of tritium was not changed by 10−7-10−5 M morphine and by 10−6-10−4 M naloxone, but was accelerated by 10−4 M morphine. Electrical field stimulation augmented tritium outflow. The overflow evoked per ppulse decreased as the frequency of stimulation was increased from 0.3 to 3 Hz, but remained approximately constant when it was further increased to 10 Hz. At frequencies of 0.3, 1, and 3 Hz, but not at 10 Hz, morphine in concentrations of 10−7-10−5 M depressed the stimulation-induced overflow of tritium. 10−4 M morphine did not influence the overflow induced by stimulation at 0.3 and 1 Hz and increased that evoked by stimulation at 10 Hz. Naloxone (10−6-10−4 M) did not change the response to stimulation. In the presence of 10−4 M naloxone, 10−6 M morphine did not diminish, and 10−5 M morphine even
The drug combination morphine/naltrexone (trade name Embeda) was an opioid combination pain medication developed by King Pharmaceuticals for use in moderate to severe pain. The active ingredients were morphine sulfate and naltrexone hydrochloride; morphine being an opioid receptor agonist and naltrexone an opioid receptor antagonist. It is a schedule 2 controlled substance, and was intended for long-term pain caused by malignancy or where lower tiers of the pain management ladder have already been exhausted, and where medications such as oxycodone would otherwise have been indicated. Embeda capsules are formulated with morphine pellets and an inner core containing naltrexone. The purpose of this formulation was to prevent people from crushing the tablet for intravenous injection or intranasal ingestion. If crushed, the naltrexone would mix with the morphine and competitively antagonize morphines physiological effects. Ingested orally and intact, the inner core encapsulating the naltrexone is ...

What is Morphine?. Morphine is the addictive element that is present in opium. It is the opioid analgesic drug which is prescribed by the doctors as a painkiller for severe or chronic pain. Morphine has been categorized as a Schedule ll drug and is one of the most commonly abused painkillers. Abuse and excessive use can produce intoxication that causes euphoria and reduced tension. In its opiate form, morphine becomes more addictive. Experts revealed that overuse of morphine or its consumption in combination with other drugs like alcohol, or even other prescribed medicines could have dangerous implications in regards to mental and physical health. Similar to other prescribed opiates, morphine tends to make one dependent on it even in a case of prescribed and legal use, it is so, mainly because a human body develops a tendency to tolerate the drug which compels the person to continue the abuse.. What are the signs & symptoms?. One of the most significant effects of Morphine abuse is that it ...

N1 - Copyright: Copyright 2007 Elsevier B.V., All rights reserved.. PY - 1978/1. Y1 - 1978/1. N2 - Acute i.p. administration of morphine or cocaine produced increase in locomotor activity in Swiss-Webster female mice that were maximal at 32-100 mg/kg for morphine and at 32 mg/kg for cocaine. WIN 35,197-2 produced dose-dependent decreases in locomotor activity from 3.2-32 mg/kg. Chronic administration of WIN 35,197-2 led to a 6-10 fold shift to the right in the locomotor activity decreasing effect of the drug, but WIN 35,197-2-tolerant mice retained their sensitivity to the locomotor stimulant effects of morphine and cocaine. Acute administration of WIN 35,197-2 failed to sensitize mice to naloxone-induced jumping, although morphine did so. Chronic administration of WIN 35,197-2 did lead to sensitization to ...
Do you think that someone you love may be suffering from morphine addiction? Would you know how to spot the signs of morphine addiction if you saw them? Sometimes, the signs of addiction are right in front of us and yet we overlook them or attribute the changes in an individuals life to other things-stress, depression, anxiety, cold or flu, being too busy. If you think that someone you love may be addicted to morphine, or if you know someone who uses morphine, consider these signs of morphine addiction a true example that it may be time to seek professional help!. ...
An original, sensitive, and specific high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) assay was developed for the quantitation of morphine and its two major metabolites, morphine-3-glucuronide (M3G) and morphine-6-glucuronide (M6G), in human plasma and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and in rat plasma, using hydromorphone as the internal standard. Solid-phase extraction was used to separate morphine and its glucuronide metabolites from plasma constituents. Extraction efficiencies of morphine, M3G, and M6G from human plasma samples (0.5 ml) were 84, 87, and 88%, respectively. Extraction efficiencies of morphine, M3G, and M6G did not differ significantly (p > 0.05) between human plasma and CSF or rat plasma. Morphine, M3G, M6G, and hydromorphone were separated on a 10 mu C-8 Resolve radially compressed cartridge using a mobile phase comprising methanol:acetonitrile:phosphate buffer, (0.0125M pH 7.5; 10: 10:80), in which 11 mg/L of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (cetrimide) was dissolved. Quantitation was ...
The hippocampus is a key center for learning and memory, and hippocampal neurons express high levels of the µ opioid receptor (MOR), one of the main receptors for morphine (2). The cognitive defects associated with morphine use are therefore likely to be caused by structural and functional alterations at hippocampal synapses; experiments in rats, for example, have shown that morphine decreases the density of excitatory synapses in this region of the brain (3). The underlying mechanisms regulating this process, however, have not been explored before, explains Shilpa Buch, from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. In order to develop therapeutic approaches that can restore normal cognitive function in morphine users, it is imperative that we understand the pathways by which morphine mediates its effects.. ...
Dr. Zaijie Jim Wang and colleagues at the University of Illinois suppressed morphine tolerance and dependence in mice by blocking calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII), which may contribute to chronic pain in the central nervous system. In a followup study, the investigators found elevated levels of CaMKII activity in the brain and spinal cord (an 81 percent and 222 percent increase, respectively) of mice displaying morphine tolerance compared with mice that did not. Trifluoperazine, an antipsychotic drug and a CaMKII inhibitor newly identified by these researchers, prevented both the increase in CaMKII activity and the development of opioid tolerance and disrupted established opioid tolerance in the animals. The findings suggest that CaMKII-suppressing drugs may reduce morphine tolerance and ultimately be of value in treating pain and fighting opioid addiction..

Intrathecal (IT) opioids are commonly administered with local anesthetic during spinal anesthesia for post-Cesarean delivery analgesia. Traditionally, IT morphine has been used but the use of IT hydromorphone is growing. Our group recently found the effective dose for postoperative analgesia in 90% patients (ED90) for both IT hydromorphone and IT morphine (IRB # 13-008490). These doses that we found were 75 mcg for hydromorphone and 150 mcg for morphine. Our current proposed study would compare the duration of analgesia of IT morphine vs IT hydromorphone after elective cesarean delivery. Additionally, we will compare each drug on the incidence of nausea and pruritus.. ...
Morphine produces a wide spectrum of pharmacologic effects including analgesia, dysphoria, euphoria, somnolence, respiratory depression, diminished gastrointestinal motility and physical dependence. Opiate analgesia involves at least three anatomical areas of the central nervous system: the periaqueductal-periventricular gray matter, the ventromedial medulla and the spinal cord. A systemically administered opiate may produce analgesia by acting at any, all or some combination of these distinct regions. Morphine interacts predominantly with the µ-receptor. The µ-binding sites of opioids are very discretely distributed in the human brain, with high densities of sites found in the posterior amygdala, hypothalamus, thalamus, nucleus caudatus, putamen and certain cortical areas. They are also found on the terminal axons of primary afferents within laminae I and II (substantia gelatinosa) of the spinal cord and in the spinal nucleus of the trigeminal nerve. Morphine has an apparent volume of ...

Oxaliplatin, a chemotherapeutic drug for colorectal cancer, induces severe peripheral neuropathy. Bee venom acupuncture (BVA) has been used to attenuate pain, and its effect is known to be mediated by spinal noradrenergic and serotonergic receptors. Morphine is a well-known opioid used to treat different types of pain. Here, we investigated whether treatment with a combination of these two agents has an additive effect on oxaliplatin-induced neuropathic pain in mice. To assess cold and mechanical allodynia, acetone and von Frey filament tests were used, respectively. Significant allodynia signs were observed three days after an oxaliplatin injection (6 mg/kg, i.p.). BVA (0.25, 1, and 2.5 mg/kg, s.c., ST36) or morphine (0.5, 2, and 5 mg/kg, i.p.) alone showed dose-dependent anti-allodynic effects. The combination of BVA and morphine at intermediate doses showed a greater and longer effect than either BVA or morphine alone at the highest dose. Intrathecal pretreatment with the opioidergic (naloxone, 20
Although they have been documented, opioid treatments in obstetrics are mostly limited to methadone maintenance treatment in pregnant addicts or analgesia/anesthesia for labor. A literature search revealed no previous studies describing analgesic techniques for relief of severe cancer pain in pregnant patients. As response to morphine is dose- dependent, its conventional use can be problematic in pregnant women suffering from severe cancer pain because it is important to prevent opioid intoxication of the fetus. Furthermore, long-term exposure to morphine may result in physical dependence on the drug by the fetus, causing acute withdrawal syndrome and growth retardation after delivery. We report our experience in treating a 35-year-old pregnant female, in her 32nd gestational week, suffering from neuropathic pain due to advanced ovarian cancer. Using a microcatheter technique, we administered small doses of morphine intrathecally and successfully controlled the pain before delivery without ...
Morphine has been shown previously to be a substrate for UGT2B7, and the formation of M3G has been used as an index of human liver microsomal UGT2B7 activity. However, data presented here suggest that formation of M6G, rather than M3G, is a selective probe for UGT2B7 activity in human tissues since multiple isoforms potentially contribute to morphine 3-glucuronidation. Formation of M3G by UGT1A3 and 1A8 is consistent with previously published data (Green et al., 1998; Cheng et al., 1999). A number of human UGTs were not screened for their capacity to glucuronidate morphine in this study, namely, UGT 1A4, 2A1, 2B11, 2B17, and 2B28. UGT1A4 has been reported previously not to metabolize morphine (Green et al., 1998), and like UGT2B10, UGT2B11 is an orphan enzyme apparently lacking catalytic activity (Jin et al., 1993; Beaulieu et al., 1998). UGT2A1 is expressed predominantly in olfactory epithelium (Tukey and Strassburg, 2000) and thus would not contribute significantly to morphine elimination in ...

Background: Morphine is a member of the naturally occurring phenanthrene alkaloids of opium. Genistein is a phytoestrogen, present in soy products. This study was designed to evaluate protective effects of genistein against morphine induced damages to the kidneys of mice. Methods: In this study, 48 male mice were randomly assigned to 8 groups: control (saline), morphine treated group (10 mg/kg/day); genistein groups (1, 2, 4 mg/kg/day) and morphine plus genistein treated group. Drugs were administrated intraperitoneally for 30 consequent days. Weight of animals and kidneys, glomeruli characteristics, kidney function markers and blood serum nitric oxide level has been studied. Result: The results indicated that morphine administration significantly increased Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), Blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine and nitric oxide levels compared to the control ( saline) group (P|0.05). Genistein in all doses and genistein plus morphine at the dose of 4 mg/kg significantly decreased LDH, BUN,
Repeated administration of morphine in increasing doses delayed normal cell death in the ciliary ganglion of the chick embryo; the effect was completely blocked by naloxone. Survival of spinal motoneurons was not affected. Morphine also inhibited potassium-stimulated synthesis of acetylcholine in ganglion cells cultured with muscle, suggesting that morphine can influence neurotransmission. Morphines effect on cell death may be due to an inhibition of transmission at the neuromuscular junction, but opiates may also directly affect cell death. Although it is now known whether the endogenous opiates in the ciliary ganglion influence neuronal survival during embryogenesis, exogenous opiates can affect normal cell death in the autonomic nervous system. ...
Therapeutic use of opioids represents the standard of care in the treatment of severe chronic pain and cancer-related pain (1). Various α2-adrenoceptor agonists, devoid of α2 subtype selectivity (i.e. clonidine), have been clinically used in pain management but, due to its α2A subtype activation, they might be responsible for sedation and hypotension side effects. Moreover, to overcome the side effects of opiate drugs, the synergism with compounds interacting with imidazoline I2 receptors has been reported (2). The aim of the study was to compare the effects of the imidazoline compounds 1, 2, and 3 (Figure) on morphine tolerance in an animal model of inflammatory pain in rats. 1, 2, and 3 have been selected in that, although bearing a common scaffold, preferentially bind to α2-adrenoceptors, imidazoline I2 receptors, or both systems, respectively.These compounds have been tested in vivo in association with morphine, by measuring the paw withdrawal threshold to mechanical pressure.

To investigate cell-type-specific opioid responses, we performed single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) of the nucleus accumbens of mice following acute morphine treatment. Differential expression analysis uncovered unique morphine-dependent transcriptional responses by oligodendrocytes and astrocytes. We examined the expression of selected genes, including Cdkn1a and Sgk1, by FISH, confirming their induction by morphine in ...
Chronic pain is a debilitating condition which exacts severe emotional, physical and economic tolls on the millions of people who suffer from it worldwide. Opioids are a mainstay of acute, postoperative and cancer pain therapy, however, their use for the treatment of chronic pain is limited by side effects including analgesic tolerance. Although the mechanisms driving analgesic tolerance are not fully understood, we propose that spinal cord glial cells have a fundamental role in this phenomenon. We hypothesize that acutely, morphine binds to abundant neuronal mu opioid receptors, producing analgesia. Chronically, morphine binds to less abundant microglial mu opioid receptors, enhancing intracellular pathway signaling, protein expression and cell migration, causing proinflammatory factor mediated neuronal sensitization and ultimately analgesic tolerance. In Chapter 3, we demonstrated that in vitro ADP dependent microglial migration can be inhibited by glial modulating agents. In Chapter 4, we ...

We demonstrated that endocytosis-inducing agonists DAMGO and fentanyl enhanced morphine-induced MOR internalization of dorsal horn neurons in rats. We reproduced the remarkable, but previously somewhat controversial, effect of DAMGO to facilitate morphine-induced endocytosis reported by He et al. 14 and further showed that fentanyl, a clinically used opioid with internalization-inducing potency, has a similar effect on MOR internalization in vivo . More importantly, concomitant with the enhancement of MOR endocytosis, we observed that the acute analgesic effect of morphine evaluated by the HP test was greatly potentiated by coadministration of these agonists. As described in the Results, the increase in analgesia was not detected in TF test, the method used in the previous report.14 Probably because of the longer cutoff latency, i.e. , broader range in analgesic extent of the HP test, we were able to find the analgesic potentiation, although contribution of the difference in mechanism between ...

  • P lants of the order Ranunculales, especially members of the species Papaver, accumulate a large variety of benzylisoquinoline alkaloids with about 2500 structures, but only the opium poppy (Papaver somniferum) and Papaver setigerum are able to produce the analgesic and narcotic morphine and the antitussive codeine. (
  • This finding completes the biosynthetic path to this important medicine and so should allow biotechnological strategies to optimize production of morphine as well as to redirect the path to morphine towards related compounds such as codeine and oxycodone. (
  • These small black seeds naturally contain morphine and codeine. (
  • Opioids, such as codeine, hydromorphone, and morphine, undergo a number of biotransformations as part of the normal metabolic process. (
  • This company produced morphine, codeine, synthetic and semisynthetic narcotics from the raw materials gum opium and poppy straw concentrate. (
  • Specifically, it excludes consumption of the pure alkaloids that can be extracted from opium (e.g. morphine and codeine), their semisynthetic modifications (e.g. heroin), or wholly synthetic opioid compounds (e.g. fentanyl). (
  • Morphine sulfate extended-release tablets expose patients and other users to the risks of opioid addiction, abuse, and misuse, which can lead to overdose and death. (
  • Serious, life-threatening, or fatal respiratory depression may occur with use of morphine sulfate extended-release tablets. (
  • Monitor for respiratory depression, especially during initiation of morphine sulfate extended-release tablets or following a dose increase. (
  • Prolonged use of morphine sulfate extended-release tablets during pregnancy can result in neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome, which may be life-threatening if not recognized and treated, and requires management according to protocols developed by neonatology experts. (
  • Morphine sulfate extended-release tablets are indicated for the management of pain severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment and for which alternative treatment options are inadequate. (
  • Because of the risks of addiction, abuse, and misuse with opioids, even at recommended doses, and because of the the greater risks of overdose and death with extended-release opioid formulations, reserve morphine sulfate extended-release tablets for use in patients for whom alternative treatment options (e.g., non-opioid analgesics or immediate-release opioids) are ineffective, not tolerated, or would be otherwise inadequate to provide sufficient management of pain. (
  • Morphine sulfate extended-release tablets are not indicated as an as-needed (prn) analgesic. (
  • Morphine sulfate extended-release tablets should be prescribed only by healthcare professionals who are knowledgeable in the use of potent opioids for the management of chronic pain. (
  • Morphine sulfate extended-release tablets must be taken whole. (
  • Initiate treatment with morphine sulfate extended-release tablets with 15 mg tablets orally every 8 or 12 hours. (
  • The starting dose for patients, who are not opioid-tolerant, is morphine sulfate extended-release tablets 15 mg orally every 12 hours. (
  • Some dosage forms listed on this page may not apply to the brand name Morphine Sulfate SR. (
  • Instruct patients to swallow morphine sulfate whole to avoid exposure to a potentially fatal dose of morphine.Accidental IngestionAccidental ingestion of morphine sulfate, especially in children, can result in fatal overdose of morphine.Neonatal Opioid Withdrawal SyndromeProlonged use of morphine sulfate during pregnancy can result in neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome, which may be life-threatening if not recognized and treated. (
  • Along with its needed effects, morphine (the active ingredient contained in Morphine Sulfate SR) may cause some unwanted effects. (
  • i have decreased the amount of morphine sulfate that i have been taking. (
  • Morphine sulfate is a Schedule II controlled substance with the potential for opioid addiction , abuse, or misuse which may lead to overdose and death. (
  • Accidental ingestion of morphine sulfate can result in fatal overdose of morphine, especially in children. (
  • Morphine sulfate is the drug of choice for narcotic analgesia because of its reliable and predictable effects, safety profile, and ease of reversibility with naloxone. (
  • Morphine sulfate administered IV may be dosed in a number of ways and commonly is titrated until the desired effect is obtained. (
  • CDC classification of stronger, weaker, and morphine-equivalent opioids is confusing. (
  • Itching is one of the most prevalent side effects of powerful, pain-killing drugs like morphine, oxycodone and other opioids. (
  • In this case, opioids such as morphine first activate MOR1D, and that receptor subsequently connects to GRPR to relay itch signals. (
  • The reason for this is two-fold: Morphine is an exceptional yardstick for research and clinical applications, and it is actually the precursor to other opioids . (
  • Scientists unveiled a synthetic drug on Thursday that appears to neutralise pain as effectively as morphine but without the side-effects that make opioids so dangerous and addictive. (
  • Evidence suggests that morphine and other kinds of licit and illicit opioids contribute to learning and memory problems in HIV patients by reducing neuronal connectivity in specific brain areas. (
  • This is different than the way that traditional opioids like morphine work, because those target the mu-opioid receptor. (
  • CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain provides recommendations about the types of opioid formulations at initiation, starting dosages, morphine milligram equivalent dosage calculation methods, dose titrating considerations, and tapering methods. (
  • Morphine belongs to the group of medicines called narcotic analgesics (pain medicines). (
  • or giving the patient a medication called a narcotic antagonist to counteract the effects of morphine. (
  • And since Morphine falls into the category of a narcotic, it can quickly lead to tolerance, as well as physical and psychological dependence. (
  • Accessibility to morphine will improve further with the passing of The Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (Amendment) Bill, 2011, said city doctors who have regularly faced hurdles when it comes to accessing morphine for patients suffering from terminal illnesses such as cancer, HIV and thalassemia. (
  • This lineage includes opium, which remained popular throughout the 19th century, followed by morphine, and later heroin during the mid-20th century. (
  • Heroin , by the way, is just the prodrug of morphine. (
  • In other words, the heroin molecule just gets broken down into morphine in the body and this is the form in which it arrives in the brain. (
  • But because each heroin molecule gets transformed into two morphine molecules (hence the medical name for heroin - diamorphine) the feeling can be a little different because the increased concentration can apparently make the high more intense. (
  • Fentanyl is a type of opioid 50 times stronger than heroin and roughly 100 times stronger than morphine. (
  • However, with administered with morphine, topical ketamine prevented the development of morphine tolerance in a dose-dependent manner. (
  • The drug, carfentanil, is a synthetic opioid that is 10,000 times stronger than morphine and 100 times more potent than fentanyl, another deadly synthetic opioid. (
  • Occasionally the specialist nurse or doctor will change the morphine to another morphine-like drug (fentanyl or oxycodone), if the side effects continue to be a problem. (
  • Le but de ce travail était d'évaluer la qualité de l'analgésie chez des parturientes ayant bénéficié d'une césarienne pratiquée sous rachianesthésie associant bupivacaïne, fentanyl et morphine. (
  • Les critères d'inclusion étaient être opérée pour césarienne en chirurgie programmée ou en urgence relative, être sous rachianesthésie réalisée avec l'association bupivacaïne, fentanyl et morphine. (
  • Le protocole bupivacaïne-fentanyl-morphine en intrathécal procure une analgésie efficace et durable. (
  • Fentanyl is a highly addictive opiate that is 80 times more potent than morphine. (
  • The authors concluded that "the percentage who used only a 'weaker-than-morphine-opioid' in the past 30 days declined from 42.4% in 1999-2002 to 20% in 2011-2012, while the percentage who used a 'stronger-than-morphine-opioid' significantly increased from 17.0% in 1999-2002 to 37.0% in 2011-2012. (
  • Are those the data the authors used to classify these drugs as stronger than morphine? (
  • Taking certain other medications during your treatment with morphine may increase the risk that you will experience breathing problems or other serious, life-threatening breathing problems, sedation, or coma. (
  • Drinking alcohol, taking prescription or nonprescription medications that contain alcohol, or using street drugs during your treatment with morphine increases the risk that you will experience breathing problems or other serious, life-threatening side effects. (
  • Morphine is created in opium poppy in a long series of steps, but the enzymes needed to catalyze two 'demethylation' steps ― in which a methyl group (or 'CH3') is removed from a molecule ― are currently unknown. (
  • As it turns out, ancient civilizations simply did not know what morphine was, though they used opium plants for medical practices. (
  • Before Serturner's breakthrough in isolating morphine from opium, the plant itself was as much a menace as it was a source of treatment. (
  • Even after morphine was discovered, countries like China were disseminated with opium addictions as a result of the British opium trade. (
  • As an alternative in a world of alternative medicine, morphine was seen as a way to retain the pain-relieving abilities of opium while reducing its addictive potential. (
  • Méthodes recommandées pour l' identification de l' opium et de la morphine brute : manuel à l' usage des laboratoires nationaux de stupéfiants. (
  • Recommended methods for testing opium/crude morphine : manual for use by national narcotics laboratories. (
  • About 20 mg of oral oxycodone and 7.5 mg of oral hydromorphone are required to obtain the same amount of pain relief as is obtained with 30 mg of oral morphine. (
  • But unlike morphine and prescription drugs such as oxycodone or oxycontin , it did not switch on a second pathway that can slow or block normal breathing. (
  • Morphine is a strong opiate and is highly addictive. (
  • When anesthesia assisted rapid detox is performed, we use intravenous medication to cleanse morphine from patients' opiate receptors while they are under light sedation. (
  • Morphine is a highly addictive medicinal opiate with a long history of recreational abuse. (
  • According to the researchers, morphine tolerance includes opioid receptor uncoupling and endocytosis/desensitization, increased binding of β-arrestin to the opioid receptor, glutamatergic receptor activation, and neuroinflammation. (
  • Dr. Wong and colleagues induced morphine tolerance in rats and then tested whether resveratrol significantly enhanced the effects of morphine. (
  • Emerging evidence suggests that NMDAR activation has a crucial role in morphine tolerance, and blockade of NMDAR function effectively attenuates morphine tolerance," they note. (
  • Resveratrol also blocked the expression of cytokines, potentially decreasing the neuro-inflammatory response in rats with morphine tolerance. (
  • Delay of morphine tolerance by palmitoylethanolamide. (
  • In spite of the potency and efficacy of morphine, its clinical application for chronic persistent pain is limited by the development of tolerance to the antinociceptive effect. (
  • The cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying morphine tolerance are complex and still unclear. (
  • PEA treatment significantly attenuated the development of tolerance doubling the number of days of morphine antinociceptive efficacy in comparison to the vehicle + morphinegroup. (
  • Morphine used for pain relief can lead to unintended consequences such as tolerance, dependence and overdose. (
  • Repeated topical administration of morphine daily produces tolerance within three days. (
  • Furthermore, topical ketamine also slowly reversed pre-existing morphine tolerance. (
  • These observations imply that topical morphine tolerance is mediated, at least in part, through peripheral N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors and raises the possibility of the use of topical NMDA receptor antagonists clinically. (
  • Morphine remains one of the most deadly recreational drugs found today due to its potency, its common use alongside substances that can produce deadly potentiation of the drug's effects, negative physiological effects, and how easy it is to build a tolerance to it. (
  • In separate studies, Dr. Millington and colleagues found evidence that Gly-Gln has potential for improving pain treatment by slowing the development of morphine tolerance. (
  • They observed that the pain-relieving effects of morphine declined 20 percent by the second day, an indication that tolerance had developed rapidly. (
  • However, rats pretreated with Gly-Gln did not begin showing evidence of morphine tolerance until the fourth day of treatment. (
  • Repeated morphine application usually leads to the development of tolerance but under certain circumstances sensitization may arise simultaneously. (
  • Morphine has a risk for abuse and addiction, which can lead to overdose and death. (
  • powerful synthetic opioid analgesic that is similar to morphine but is 50 to 100 times more potent. (
  • The morphine milligram equivalent calculator that had been previously provided on this page has been retired. (
  • Identify methods for calculating morphine milligram equivalent dosage. (
  • To lower your risk, your doctor should have you use the smallest dose of morphine that works, and use it for the shortest possible time. (
  • The investigators treated rats with morphine twice daily for 7 days and, each day, measured the rats' reaction to pain with tailflick latency tests. (
  • The morphine was prescribed to a hospice patient, who subsequently received diluted doses of the medication shortly before her death. (
  • Morphine is a very effective analgesic and can be given in very large doses to control very severe pain in persons at the end of life. (
  • In some hospitals, the nurse can give extra doses of morphine through the pump as needed. (
  • If your child is not comfortable despite the morphine infusion, the nurse can give your child extra doses of the morphine through the pump. (
  • The substances to be tested were injected as single doses 4 weeks after completion of a 10-day morphine pretreatment. (
  • The doses of morphine did nothing. (
  • Morphine injections into the back are not recommended for children. (
  • The molecular mechanisms of sensitization may include the long lasting increase in neuronal responsiveness to morphine which was observed in defined brain areas after repeated morphine injections. (
  • This short video is a devastating microcosm of emerging evidence that over 65's in the UK were targeted for 'a good death' by lethal injections of Midazolam and Morphine, thereby creating the illusion that Britain was in the grip of a viral pandemic. (
  • In one study, rats were given intrathecal morphine injections for several days until they displayed OIH that was sensitive to heat. (
  • Opioid drugs such as morphine interact with receptors on nerve cells. (
  • Morphine works by affecting the receptors of the nervous system and results in sedation and pain relief. (
  • Because the brain isn't capable of handling such intense rushes of dopamine, dopamine receptors become damaged and make it more difficult to feel pleasure, leading users to use more and more morphine to chase the fleeting euphoria it once offered them. (
  • Whether morphine is used according to a doctor's recommendations or it's being abused, it can also become very quickly addictive. (
  • And considering how effective morphine is with treating moderate to severe pain, it's probably not surprising that it's not only highly addictive but can quickly become habit-forming. (
  • 1 Morphine is so addictive due to its close interaction with dopamine production in the brain. (
  • If you take morphine with any of these medications and you develop any of the following symptoms, call your doctor immediately or seek emergency medical care: unusual dizziness, lightheadedness, extreme sleepiness, slowed or difficult breathing, or unresponsiveness. (
  • Do not drink alcohol, take any prescription or nonprescription medications that contain alcohol, or use street drugs during your treatment with other morphine products. (
  • Overdose can also happen when morphine is used in combination with other substances including alcohol, other prescription medications and illegal drugs. (
  • After exhausting many advance pain medications, doctors at TMH started Gupta on morphine. (
  • Recovery from morphine can be effective through the use of various medications and therapeutic treatments, and rehabilitation facilities offer extensive resources for recovering from morphine addiction in a safe, stable, and comfortable manner. (
  • Though effective, morphine can cause both physical and psychological dependence, both of which can set in rather quickly. (
  • They induced morphine dependence in the rats, injected some with Gly-Gln 72 hours later, and then administered the opioid antagonist naloxone to induce withdrawal. (
  • When morphine is used for a long time, it may become habit-forming, causing mental or physical dependence. (
  • When opiates like morphine are withdrawn, the effects of this withdrawal include not only dope sickness but also strong cravings for more of the drug. (
  • The greatest relief for the morphine addict is to wake up fresh, without the dulled, cloudy feeling of opiates in one's body. (
  • Addiction to morphine, other opiates or other drugs can come to an end. (
  • Morphine is one of the most common opiates found today. (
  • Morphine comes from a long line of related opiates that have held historical significance in their prevalence and addictiveness. (
  • Morphine is an effective pain reliever and often the standard against which other analgesics are measured. (
  • Both morphine and anandamide significantly stimulated cultured endothelial intracellular calcium level increases in a concentration-dependent manner in cells pre-loaded with fura 2/AM. Morphine is more potent than anandamide (approximately 275 vs. 135 nM [Ca]i), and the [Ca]i for both ligands was blocked by prior exposure of the cells to their respective receptor antagonist, i.e., naloxone and SR 171416A. (
  • Morphine carries a reputation for its common usage as an anesthetic and painkiller in medicine, as well as an infamous reputation for its extremely potent addictiveness, common overdoses, and difficult withdrawals when abused recreationally. (
  • Trouble breathing or no breathing: morphine interacts with centers of the brain linked to respiration. (
  • A single intraperitoneal dose of cocaine (10 mg/kg) or morphine (20 mg/kg) increased activity compared with saline, the stimulant effect being larger in the FR group, suggesting "cross-sensitization" to these drugs. (
  • The most serious adverse effects of morphine hydrochloride are bronchospasm, respiratory depression, bile tract spasms, hypersensitivity reactions and general asthenia up to syncope. (
  • Will there be any side effects from the morphine infusion? (
  • At that point, the craving effects created by the drug may drive a person back to use more morphine. (
  • If a person uses too much morphine, the dangerous effects of an overdose include cold, clammy skin, low blood pressure, slow pulse rate and even coma and death. (
  • For a person addicted to morphine, the withdrawal effects with start within 6 to 12 hours after the last dose of the drug. (
  • There are thousands of rehabs in the US and other countries that treat the effects of morphine addiction with substitute drugs. (
  • As these drug toxins leave the body, the deadening effects of the morphine that was abused fade away, leaving a person brighter and more able to think clearly. (
  • It is possible to recover from the damaging effects of morphine. (
  • Oxymorphone (14-hyroxydihydromorphinone) has similar effects to morphine , and it was first marketed as an injectable or rectal suppository as early as 1959. (
  • In fact, the long-term psychological effects of morphine use can last months, years or even a lifetime. (
