Effect of morphine and naloxone on priming-induced audiogenic seizures in BALB/c mice. (1/1848)

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)

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. (2/1848)

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)

Reproductive experience and opioid regulation of luteinizing hormone release in female rats. (3/1848)

The objective of the present study was to determine whether reproductive experience that produces shifts in opioid regulation of prolactin secretion and behavioural functions also alters opioid regulation of LH during the oestrous cycle or lactation. In Expt 1 the effect of naloxone administration (i.v.) on LH was compared between age-matched, nulliparous and primiparous, catheterized female rats on dioestrus II. In Expt 2, the effects of multiple reproductive experiences on opiate control of LH were investigated using cyclic, nulliparous and multiparous (three litters) rats. In both experiments, no differences in naloxone-stimulated LH release were found between groups even though multiple reproductive experiences resulted in the prolongation of oestrous cyclicity. In Expt 3, day 8 lactating primiparous rats were administered 2, 5, 10 or 25 mg naloxone kg-1 i.v. The three lowest naloxone doses, but not the 25 mg kg-1 dose, significantly increased LH concentrations. The possible effects of prior reproductive experience on opioid control of LH during lactation were then investigated. Naloxone at 0.5 mg kg-1, but not at 2 mg kg-1 or 10 mg kg-1, stimulated a significantly greater rise in LH in multiparous (two litters) than in primiparous females. Overall, these data indicate that while modest differences were found in naloxone-induced LH responses between multiparous and primiparous animals during lactation, reproductive experience did not significantly alter opioid regulation of LH during subsequent oestrous cycles at the naloxone doses examined. Hence, the effects of reproductive experience on opioid regulation of LH are less pronounced than those previously found for opioid regulation of prolactin and behaviour.  (+info)

Morphine preconditioning attenuates neutrophil activation in rat models of myocardial infarction. (4/1848)

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)

Opioidergic modulation of voltage-activated K+ currents in magnocellular neurons of the supraoptic nucleus in rat. (5/1848)

Opioidergic modulation plays an important role in the control of oxytocin and vasopressin release by magnocellular neurons (MCNs) in the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei of the hypothalamus. We have used whole cell patch-clamp recording in acute slices of the supraoptic nucleus (SON) of the hypothalamus to study opioidergic modulation of voltage-dependent K+ currents in MCNs that are involved in release activity. The mu-receptor agonist D-Ala2, N-Me-Phe4, Gly5-ol-enkephalin (DAMGO, 2 microM) affected K+ currents in 55% of magnocellular neurons recorded from. In these putative oxytocinergic cells, DAMGO increased the delayed rectifier current (IK(V)) amplitude by approximately 50% without significant effects on its activation kinetics. The transient A current (IA) was enhanced by DAMGO by approximately 36%. Its inactivation kinetic was accelerated slightly while the voltage dependence of steady-state inactivation was shifted by -6 mV to more negative potentials. All DAMGO effects were blocked by the preferential non-kappa-opioid antagonist naloxone (10 microM). The kappa-opioid agonist trans-(+/-)-3, 4-dichloro-N-methyl-N(2-[1-pyrrolidinyl]cyclohexyl)benzeneacetamide (U50,488; 10 microM) strongly suppressed IK(V) by approximately 57% and evoked a 20-mV hyperpolarizing shift and an acceleration of activation in both, DAMGO-sensitive and -insensitive putative vasopressinergic MCNs. U50,488 reduced IA by approximately 29% and tau of inactivation by -20% in DAMGO-sensitive cells. In contrast, in DAMGO-insensitive cells U50,488 increased IA by approximately 23% and strongly accelerated inactivation (tau -44%). The effects of U50,488 were suppressed by the selective kappa-receptor antagonist nor-binaltorphimine (5 microM). We conclude that mu- and kappa-opioidergic inputs decrease and increase excitability of oxytocinergic MCNs, respectively, through modulation of voltage-dependent K+ currents. In vasopressinergic MCNs, kappa-opioidergic inputs differentially modulate these K+ currents. The modulation of K+ currents is assumed to significantly contribute to opioidergic control of hormone release by MCNs within the supraoptic nucleus and from the axon terminals in the neural lobe.  (+info)

Fentanyl and morphine, but not remifentanil, inhibit acetylcholine release in pontine regions modulating arousal. (6/1848)

BACKGROUND: Opioids inhibit the rapid eye movement (REM) phase of sleep and decrease acetylcholine (ACh) release in medial pontine reticular formation (mPRF) regions contributing to REM sleep generation. It is not known whether opioids decrease ACh release by acting on cholinergic cell bodies or on cholinergic axon terminals. This study used in vivo microdialysis to test the hypothesis that opioids decrease ACh levels at cholinergic neurons in the laterodorsal tegmental nuclei (LDT) and LDT axon terminals in the mPRF. METHODS: Nine male cats were anesthetized with halothane, and ACh levels within the mPRF or LDT were assayed using microdialysis and high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC). ACh levels were analyzed in response to dialysis of the mPRF and LDT with Ringer's solution (control), followed by dialysis with Ringer's solution containing morphine sulfate (MSO4) or naloxone. ACh in the mPRF also was measured during either dialysis delivery or intravenous infusion of remifentanil and during dialysis delivery of fentanyl. RESULTS: Compared with dialysis of Ringer's solution, microdialysis with MSO4 decreased ACh by 23% in the mPRF and by 30% in the LDT. This significant decrease in ACh was antagonized by naloxone. MSO4 and fentanyl each caused a dose-dependent decrease in mPRF ACh when delivered by dialysis. Remifentanil delivered by continuous intravenous infusion or by dialysis into the mPRF did not alter mPRF ACh. CONCLUSIONS: Morphine inhibits ACh at the cholinergic cell body region (LDT) and the terminal field in the mPRF. ACh in the mPRF was not altered by remifentanil and was significantly decreased by fentanyl. Thus, MSO4 and fentanyl disrupt cholinergic neurotransmission in the LDT-mPRF network known to modulate REM sleep and cortical electroencephalographic activation. These data are consistent with the possibility that inhibition of pontine cholinergic neurotransmission contributes to arousal state disruption by opioids.  (+info)

Effect of systemic morphine on the responses of convergent neurons to noxious heat stimuli applied over graded surface areas. (7/1848)

BACKGROUND: Stimulus intensity is a major determinant of the antinociceptive activity of opiates. This study focused on the influence of the spatial characteristics of nociceptive stimuli, on opiate-induced depressions of nociceptive transmission at the level of the spinal cord. METHODS: Anesthetized rats were prepared to allow extracellular recordings to be made from convergent neurons in the lumbar dorsal horn. The effects of systemic morphine (1 and 10 mg/kg) were compared with those of saline for thermal stimuli of constant intensity, applied to the area of skin surrounding the excitatory receptive field (1.9 cm2) or to a much larger adjacent area (18 cm2). RESULTS: The responses (mean +/- SD) elicited by the 1.9-cm2 stimulus were not modified by 1 mg/kg intravenous morphine, although they were decreased by the 10-mg/kg dose (to 11+/-4% of control values compared with saline; P < 0.05). In contrast, when the 18-cm2 stimulus was applied, 1 mg/kg intravenous morphine produced a paradoxical facilitation of the neuronal responses (159+/-36% of control values; P < 0.05) and 10 mg/kg intravenous morphine resulted in a weaker depression of the responses (to 42+/-24% of control values; P < 0.05) than was observed with the smaller stimulus. CONCLUSIONS: Doses of systemic morphine in the analgesic range for rats had dual effects on nociceptive transmission at the level of the spinal cord, depending on the surface area that was stimulated. Such effects are difficult to explain in terms of accepted pharmacodynamic concepts and may reflect an opioid-induced depression of descending inhibitory influences triggered by spatial summation.  (+info)

U50,488H-induced internalization of the human kappa opioid receptor involves a beta-arrestin- and dynamin-dependent mechanism. Kappa receptor internalization is not required for mitogen-activated protein kinase activation. (8/1848)

Agonist-promoted internalization of some G protein-coupled receptors has been shown to mediate receptor desensitization, resensitization, and down-regulation. In this study, we investigated whether opioids induced internalization of the human and rat kappa opioid receptors stably expressed in Chinese hamster ovary cells, the potential mechanisms involved in this process and its possible role in activation of mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase. Exposure of the human kappa receptor to the agonists U50,488H, U69,593, ethylketocyclazocine, or tifluadom, but not etorphine, promoted receptor internalization. However, none of these agonists induced significant internalization of the rat kappa opioid receptor. U50, 488H-induced human kappa receptor internalization was time- and concentration-dependent, with 30-40% of the receptors internalized following a 30-min exposure to 1 microM U50,488H. Agonist removal resulted in the receptors gradually returning to the cell surface over a 60-min period. The antagonist naloxone blocked U50, 488H-induced internalization without affecting internalization itself, while pretreatment with pertussis toxin had no effect on U50, 488H-induced internalization. In contrast, incubation with sucrose (0.4-0.8 M) significantly reduced U50,488H-induced internalization of the kappa receptor. While co-expression of the wild type GRK2, beta-arrestin, or dynamin I had no effect on kappa receptor internalization, co-expression of the dominant negative mutants GRK2-K220R, beta-arrestin (319-418), or dynamin I-K44A significantly inhibited receptor internalization. Whether receptor internalization is critical for MAP kinase activation was next investigated. Co-expression of dominant negative mutants of beta-arrestin or dynamin I, which greatly reduced U50,488H-induced internalization, did not affect MAP kinase activation by the agonist. In addition, etorphine, which did not promote human kappa receptor internalization, was able to fully activate MAP kinase. Moreover, U50,488H or etorphine stimulation of the rat kappa receptor, which did not undergo internalization, also effectively activated MAP kinase. Thus, U50,488H-induced internalization of the human kappa opioid receptor in Chinese hamster ovary cells occurs via a GRK-, beta-arrestin-, and dynamin I-dependent process that likely involves clathrin-coated pits. In addition, internalization of the kappa receptor is not required for activation of MAP kinase.  (+info)

Naloxone is an special narcotic drug which reverses the sequels of other narcotic medicines. Naloxone is a drug used to retaliate the effects of opioid overdose. Opioid is a chemical substance which has a morphine-like action in the body. The prime use is for pain relief. These agents work by pledging to opioid receptors, which are found principally in the central nervous system and the gastrointestinal tract. The receptors in these two organ systems mediate both the propitious effects, and the undesirable side effects are for example heroin or morphine overdose. Naloxone may also be used to treat narcotic drug overdose or to diagnose narcotic drug addiction. Naloxone prevents or counters the effects of opioids including respiratory depression, sedation and hypotension. Also, it may reverse the psychotomimetic and dysphoric effects of agonist-antagonists such as pentazocine. Naloxone hydrochloride does not produce respiratory depression, psychotomimetic effects or pupillary constriction. In the ...

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 Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) has expanded an agreement that provides the opioid overdose drug, naloxone, to certain organizations at a reduced cost. The agreement with the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) already allowed public entities (law enforcement, first responders, EMS) to purchase naloxone at a reduced rate. However, the agreement did not include other organizations, such as non-profits. Working with the Iowa Attorney Generals Office, IDPH is now able to allow non-profits that receive state funds to use the agreement to purchase naloxone at the reduced rate.. "This is a significant step in potentially reducing opioid-related overdoses," said IDPH Opioid Initiatives Director Kevin Gabbert. "The usual cost for purchasing naloxone through a pharmacy is around $150. By purchasing through the DAS agreement, the cost is $75.". In an overdose situation, naloxone is given by nasal spray or injection to reverse the opioid-induced slowing of the respiratory system, ...
Rules Official Rules, Terms and Conditions. Background. The 2016 FDA Naloxone App Competition (the competition), announced on Sept. 20, 2016 in the Federal Register, encourages computer programmers, public health advocates, clinical researchers, entrepreneurs, and innovators from all disciplines to create teams focused on the development of innovative strategies to combat the rising epidemic of opioid overdose. Specifically, the competition invites submissions for an app that increases the likelihood of timely naloxone administration by connecting opioid users experiencing an overdose with nearby naloxone carriers. FDA is most interested in concepts that are readily scalable, free or low-cost to the end-user, and take advantage of existing systems for naloxone distribution and use. FDAs expectation is that any app developed through the competition will be used only with FDA-approved naloxone products.. As explained in the Federal Register Notice, announcing the competition, FDA is sponsoring ...

UI - 000005 AU - Freeman TB AU - Campbell JN AU - Long DM TI - Naloxone does not affect pain relief induced by electrical stimulation in man AB - IN: New York U Medical Ctr, Dept of Neurosurgery LA: English AB: Investigated whether pain relief that resulted from transcutaneous (TNS) or spinal cord electrical stimulation in patients with chronic pain was due to activation of an endogenous opiate-related pain control system. Naloxone (0.4-10 mg, iv) or saline was injected in double-blind fashion into opiate-naive Ss with chronic pain who achieved 30% or greater pain relief with spinal cord stimulation (4 patients) or TNS (9 patients). Ss (aged 14-62 yrs) rated their pain during stimulation and 2, 5, 10, and 15 min after the injection. Two days or more later the procedure was repeated using the alternate agent (naloxone or saline). Naloxone did not decrease the pain relief induced by stimulation, suggesting that the effects of stimulation are probably not mediated by the endogenous opiates. (27 ...

In the present study, naloxone significantly reduced the progression of retinal lesions in DKO mice as visualized clinically and on histopathologic examination. Furthermore, retinal A2E levels in the DKO mice treated with naloxone were significantly lower than in the control nontreated DKO mice. Naloxone also decreased microglia accumulation and activation at the site of retinal degeneration, which might possibly have been mediated, at least in part, by the downregulation of inflammatory molecules NO, TNF-α, and IL-1β, that were observed with treatment (Table 1). The downregulation of these proinflammatory molecules is also demonstrated in the activated microglia in vitro, which is in line with recent studies on primary rat mesencephalon microglia. 22 Naloxone is a nonselective antagonist of opioid receptors. It is a μ-opioid receptor competitive antagonist; the μ3 receptor is linked to NO production and inflammation mechanism. Acting on these receptors, naloxone may well protect NO-induced ...
As part of the campaign, New Yorkers are encouraged to carry naloxone to help when someone is experiencing an overdose. Under the New York State Department of Healths Naloxone Co-payment Assistance Program (N-CAP), individuals can access low-cost or no-cost naloxone at pharmacies across the state. At participating pharmacies, individuals with prescription coverage as part of their health insurance plan can receive up to $40 in co-payment assistance for the purchase of this lifesaving drug. Uninsured individuals and individuals without prescription coverage can receive naloxone at no cost through New Yorks network of registered opioid overdose prevention programs..

Pharmacists Can Dispense Naloxone Under Statewide Standing Order. A law regarding the prescribing and dispensing of Opioid Antagonists (Naloxone) became effective June 8, 2015. Act 2015-364, §1 provides authorization for physicians and dentists to utilize standing orders (collaborative agreements) to prescribe opioid antagonists for patients or family members/friends of at-risk patients. It goes on to state that pharmacists can then dispense from these orders. On May 26, 2016, State Health Officer Dr. Thomas Miller issued a statewide standing order for the dispensing of Naloxone pursuant to Act 2016-307. Dr. Miller issued an updated order on December 13, 2016, with an expiration date of December 31, 2019.. This standing order may be used as a prescription to obtain Naloxone from a pharmacy in the event there is an inability to obtain Noloxone or a prescription for Naloxone from an eligible persons regular healthcare provider or another source. This order is authorization for pharmacists to ...

To the editor: In a recent article, Lyon and Antony (1) reported the dramatic effect of naloxone hydrochloride in two comatose patients with alcoholic intoxication. They stress, for the first time, the need to repeat injections to keep the patients awake. Their data favour the hypothesis that endorphins play a role in the alcoholic coma.. However, in our experience, only 10% of the patients in coma improve after naloxone administration. Our impression is corroborated by the work of Jefferys and associates (2), which indicates the presence of an individual sensitivity to endorphins in some patients with acute alcoholic intoxication.. We ...
Signed by Governor Pence in April 2015, Aarons Law puts Naloxone into the hands of those who can use it most effectively. Naloxone is an anti-overdose substance that counters the effects of dangerous opiate drugs, such as heroin. Aarons Law allows doctors to prescribe Naloxone to individuals who are able to administer it to an overdose victim. When someones life is on the line, every second counts.. Where can I get Naloxone?. You can get Naloxone through a prescription from your doctor or through a registered Naloxone Entity, which you can find on www.optin.in.gov.. Is Naloxone safe? Yes, Naloxone is a very safe drug. It is not a controlled substance, and its only use is to reverse drug overdose. If you give Naloxone to someone who is not overdosing, it will have no effect. It is impossible to overdose on Naloxone.. How do I administer Naloxone?. Naloxone is available as an intramuscular injection similar to an Epipen. It is also available as a nasal spray, which is less expensive and just as ...
When it comes to treating an opiate overdose, Lieutenant BCI Brent Davison of the New York State Police described the tool that has been saving lives across the state in one word: "miraculous.". The tool is Naloxone, or more commonly known as Narcan. Classified as an opioid antagonist, Naloxone is a drug that reverses the effects of opiate overdose. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Naloxone injection is a liquid that can be injected into a vein, muscle, skin or nasal cavity. The drug is normally given to relieve opiate side effects surgery patients may experience when given certain painkillers. But, in recent years, it has found a new yet similar purpose.. As a result of increasing heroin-related deaths, law enforcement and health services officials all over the state have been trained to use Narcan. This past August, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo announced free Narcan training sessions offered by Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services across the state.. Since the ...
AAFS SYNTHETIC OPIOID AD HOC COMMITTEE REPORT - NALOXONE. July 13, 2017. The American Academy of Forensic Sciences recommends that first responders and forensic service providers involved in the investigation and/or handling of suspected synthetic opioids ensure ready access to naloxone as an antidote to inadvertent opioid overdose. To be most effective, naloxone must be available at the forensic service location and to the personnel who may witness an inadvertent opioid exposure or overdose. Forensic service providers and first responders must also ensure that personnel are trained to recognize the symptoms of opioid overdose and to effectively administer naloxone as part of a comprehensive first aid and emergency response plan.. Background. Synthetic opioid is a generic term given to a group of synthetic chemicals that bind to opioid receptors in the body and produce narcotic effects. Synthetic opioids depress the central nervous system, and exposure to synthetic opioids can cause respiratory ...
Single-cell activity was recorded in the locus coeruleus (LC) of morphine-dependent, halothane-anesthetized rats. Systemic administration of the opiate antagonist naloxone (0.1 mg/kg, i.v.) robustly increased the activity of LC neurons. Local microinjection of naloxone or of its hydrophilic derivative, naloxone methiodide, into LC (10 mM, 20-40 nl) did not activate LC neurons in dependent rats. Intracerebroventricular or intracoerulear injection of kynurenate, a broad-spectrum antagonist of excitatory amino acids (EAAs), substantially but incompletely attenuated the activation of LC cells induced by intravenous naloxone-precipitated withdrawal (more than 50% blockade). Intracoerulear microinjections of the non-NMDA-receptor antagonist 6-cyano-7-dinitroquinoxaline-2,3-dione (CNQX) or the selective NMDA-receptor antagonist AP5 significantly reduced the withdrawal-induced excitation. AP5 was the least effective among all antagonists tested. Similar microinjections of kynurenate or CNQX almost ...
The indication to give Naloxone to reverse respiratory and central nervous system depression in a neonate following maternal opioid use during labour has been removed. There is little evidence to support its use in neonates. If Naloxone is given to neonates born to opioid addicted mothers there are concerns that it may produce withdrawal effects. Emphasis should be on effective drying and stimulation of the baby, systematic airway management with bag valve-mask ventilation and maintaining newborn temperature between 36.50C to 37.50C. Where these interventions do not achieve established respiratory effort the newborn should be rapidly conveyed to the nearest Emergency Department with an Obstetric Unit attached. The pre-alert should detail the neonatal emergency. The newborn should be conveyed, where necessary, ahead of the mother ...
In intravenous drug abusers (IDUs), as a result of previous intravenous substance abuse, the predictable difficult cannulate exist and cause the delay administration of antidote therapy.

This isnt getting better this is getting worse," Carr said about a fentanyl crisis that has plagued the nation.. The school trustee said there are minimal negative side effects even if you give Naloxone to someone who hasnt overdosed.. Ryerson University is one of the many institutions that have made Naloxone available over the last 12 months. The kits are accessible to students who work for Ryersons Equity Service Centres.. Corey Scott, Ryersons equity and campaign organizer, said Naloxone injections have fewer side effects than even the most basic lifesaving practices.. "What a lot of people confuse this with is giving drugs to addicts, its not standard drugs its actually saving a life," he said. "Within our training, they cover what the harm is, which is nausea and a headache.. "If you compare this to CPR, where you could break peoples ribcage, its on a whole different scale," Scott said.. He said the kits werent implemented to encourage students to be heroes and the training ...

Recent findings suggest that pain and pleasure share common neurochemical circuits, and studies in animals and humans show that opioid-mediated descending pathways can inhibit or facilitate pain. We explored the role of endogenous opioid neurotransmission in pleasure-related analgesia. μ-Opioidergic activity was blocked with 0.2 mg/kg naloxone to assess its effects on hedonic responses to pleasant emotional pictures (International Affective Picture System) and its modulating effects on heat pain tolerance. Naloxone did not alter subjective and autonomous reactions to pleasure induction or overall mood of participants. In addition, pleasure-related increases in pain tolerance persisted after reversal of endogenous μ-opioidergic neurotransmission. Subjective pain intensity and unpleasantness ratings increased after naloxone administration. These findings suggest that, in addition to opioid-sensitive circuits, mainly opioid-insensitive pain-modulating circuits are activated during ...
The need for opioid reversal agents in animals is increasing due to human abuse of opioids, which can lead to unintentional exposures in pets. Discover how intranasal administration of the opioid reversal agent naloxone fared as compared with IV administration.
Some drugs make you sick and some can save your life. Heroin and Naloxone are good examples of each - when someone overdoses on heroin, Naloxone may save their life. But having to go through the process of giving someone an intramuscular or subcutaneous injection isnt necessarily easy or some people. Now the FDA has approved Naloxone in a nasal spray - which is much easier to administer. Read more. ...
On the heels of an announcement that 68 Scioto County residents were saved by the opioid overdose reversal medicine Naloxone, comes an announcement that the Kroger Company Columbus division, will make Naloxone available without a prescription at its 112 pharmacies in Ohio beginning Wednesday, Feb. 17. By that date, Naloxone will also be available in the 84 pharmacies in Krogers Cincinnati/Dayton division, one pharmacy in its Central division and three pharmacies in its Mid-Atlantic division - for a total of 200 Kroger pharmacies across Ohio.. Last week, the national chain, CVS made a similar announcement, prompting reaction from Lisa Roberts RN, of the Portsmouth City Health Department.. "There is a national effort to get Naloxone to be more available to anybody that may need it," Roberts said. "The reason of course for that is that the entire country is in the midst of this terrible opioid epidemic that was ushered in by pain medication.". Kroger officials are responding to a definite need in ...
Evidence from postmortem analysis implicates the involvement of microglia in the neurodegenerative process of several degenerative neurological diseases, including Alzheimers disease and Parkinsons disease. It remains to be determined, however, whether microglial activation plays a role in the initiation stage of disease progression or occurs merely as a response to neuronal death. Activated microglia secrete a variety of proinflammatory and neurotoxic factors that are believed to induce and/or exacerbate neurodegeneration. In this article, we summarize recent advances on the study of the role of microglia based on findings from animal and cell culture models in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases, with particular emphasis on Parkinsons disease. In addition, we also discuss novel approaches to potential therapeutic strategies.. ...
Senate Bill (SB) 833 (Chapter 30, Statutes of 2016) established a new Naloxone Grant Program within the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) with the goal of reducing the number of fatal overdoses in California from opioid drugs, including prescription opioids and heroin, by increasing access to the life-saving drug naloxone. A total of $3 million was allocated on a one-time basis to support this program. The Naloxone Grant Program is administered by the Safe and Active Communities Branch(SACB).. Drug overdose (poisoning) is the leading cause of unintentional injury death in the United States, causing more deaths than motor vehicle crashes. Opioids - both prescription painkillers and heroin - are responsible for most of those deaths. The number of Californians affected by prescription and non-prescription opioid misuse and overdose is substantial, with rates varying significantly across counties, and even within counties. Naloxone is a medication that works almost immediately to reverse ...
The Toronto District School Board has approved a plan to put naloxone in all of its high schools and alternative schools.. Ryan Bird, spokesperson for the TDSB, told CBC Toronto there hasnt been a situation where a naloxone kit was needed, but the board is taking the step as a precaution.. "We have EpiPens in our school for severe allergies, and theyre there just in case," Bird said. "Its the same with these kits.". On Wednesday night, school board trustees agreed to receive a report that outlined the TDSBs plan to combat the growing opioid crisis. The school board will be training about three staff members per school on the use of naloxone and the nasal spray version of the drug, which is supplied in the kit.. Training is expected to begin before March Break, and be complete by the end of April. Naloxone kits will be distributed to the schools once the training is done.. Bird said the plan is part of a larger conversation the TDSB has had with Toronto Public Health. ...
Although naloxone has been used as a specific antidote for opioid poisoning since the 1960s,8 there are variations in the recommended doses with the British National Formulary advising 0.8-2 mg boluses, repeated as necessary up to 10 mg for adults (10 µg/kg followed by 100 µg/kg boluses for children), and Poisindex suggesting 0.4-2 mg boluses. There is also wide variation in the route of administration.. There are a number of reasons for this. First, opioids exert their effect by binding to a series of receptors. Naloxone has antagonist activity at all of the receptor types9 and the amount needed to provide such an effect depends upon the number of receptors occupied. Recent evidence suggests that a dose of 13 µg/kg naloxone (approximately 1 mg in an 80 kg person) produces 50% receptor occupancy;10 however, this is also influenced by the dose of opioid ingested or injected. Unfortunately this is seldom known in clinical practice,11 and instances have been reported where over 20 times the ...

AbstractObjective(s)Single injection of naloxone, a selective antagonist of morphine, prior to the drug conditioning testing was used to investigate on morphine dependence.Materials and MethodsConditioning to morphine (2.5-10 mg/kg, s.c.) was established in adult male Wistar rats (weighing 200-250 g) using an unbiased procedure. Nitric oxide agents were microinjected into the central amygdala prior to naloxone-paired place conditioning testing.ResultsThe results showed that morphine produced a significant dose-dependent place preference in animals. Naloxone (0.1-0.4 mg/kg, i.p.) injections pre-testing of the response to morphine (7.5 mg/kg, s.c.) caused a significant aversion at the higher doses (0.4 mg/kg, i.p.). This response was reversed by microinjection of L-arginine (0.3-3 µg/rat, intra-central amygdala) prior to naloxone on the day of the testing. The response to L-arginine was blocked by pre-injection of NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) (intra-central amygdala).ConclusionA ...

Naloxone 40 mug was administered intravenously one minute after birth to 20 out of 44 neonates whose mother had been given pethidine in labour. These neonates were compared with 20 others whose mothers had had only lumbar epidural block. Alveolar PCO2, alveolar ventilation, and ventilatory rate were measured 10 and 30 minutes after birth. The untreated neonates of mothers who had had pethidine showed significant ventilatory depression compared with infants in the epidural and naloxone-treated groups. The naloxone-treated neonates were comparable with the epidural group, although the effects of naloxone were diminishing at 30 minutes. Naloxone is an effective narcotic antagonist which should be considered to be the drug of choice for treating narcotic depression in the neonate. ...

To the editor: The paper on naloxone by Dr. Martin (Ann Intern Med 85:765-768, 1976) states on page 767, "Naloxone has a relatively short duration of action. The serum half-life of naloxone is just over an hour (17) and the half-life of commonly used clinical doses may be only several hours (18, 19).". By definition, the half-life of any substance X is constant and most certainly does not depend on the initial dose. This is such a serious conceptual error that it undermines my confidence in the whole paper. ...

Kemptville - In response to the growing Fentanyl crisis, the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario has purchased Naloxone kits for all CDSBEO schools. On Tuesday, May 30, several staff from each school attended training sessions in Kemptville and Cornwall to learn how to administer Naloxone, an antidote for opioid overdose. Kits were distributed to each school at the session.. Discussing the growing opioid crisis at the training session, Harm Reduction Coordinator Jennifer Adams from the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit noted, "Opioid related deaths are a leading cause of death in Ontario. These deaths are outnumbering motor vehicle collision deaths by a long shot in our province, and there has been a 463 per cent increase in opioid deaths between 2000 and 2013. In 2015, there were 735 opioid deaths in Ontario, and 201 of these were from Fentanyl.". The Board has recently partnered with the Upper Canada District School Board and local health units to host a series of ...
As we continue our fight against opioid addiction, this order makes naloxone more accessible for those most likely to need it," said Dr. Eden Wells, chief medical executive of MDHHS. "This is a vital step in reducing deaths related to opioid addiction in Michigan. By allowing for shorter response times in emergency situations, we can help save lives.". States nationwide have experienced a dramatic increase in the number of opioid-related overdoses in recent years. In Michigan, the number of heroin-related overdose deaths increased from 1.1 per 100,000 residents in 2007 to 6.8 per 100,000 residents in 2015. Opioids, including heroin and prescription drugs, accounted for 473 deaths in 2007; in 2015, that number increased to 1,275.. As part of their final recommendations, Gov. Snyders Prescription Drug and Opioid Abuse Task Force found that naloxone is a safe and lifesaving drug that should be more accessible. In 2016, Public Act 383 was passed giving the chief medical executive authority to issue ...

Naloxone is the most common antidote used for overdoses. It is normally ambulance personnel who administer naloxone in connection with opioid overdoses, and doses are administered by intramuscular or intravenous injection. It is now being discussed whether naloxone in the form of a mouth spray should be available to others as well, as first aid for someone who has overdosed until the ambulance arrives.

Naloxone is an antidote to a heroin or painkiller overdose. There is currently a debate as to whether naloxone, also known as its old brand name Narcon,
Opioids are morphine like substances that have actions at specific opioid receptors (especially µ receptors) in the central nervous system (CNS). Tolerance of respiratory depression develops at a slower rate than analgesic tolerance, placing patients with a long history of opioid use at particular risk for respiratory depression. If chronic users abruptly stop taking opioids, they develop an acute withdrawal syndrome. Most opioid toxicity is the result of inadvertent overdosage during recreational use or in self-harm, but it can also be due to medication misuse and drug errors. It is characterized by three main clinical features (all may not be consistently present); depressed respiratory rate (the sine qua non of opioid poisoning) and respiratory volume, and reduced arterial oxygen desaturation, CNS depression, and small or pin-point pupils. Opioid-poisoned patients require early clinical assessment, appropriate administration of intravenous naloxone (competitive opioid antagonist) and meticulous
BACKGROUND: Opioid use disorder (OUD) has become a public health crisis in the U.S., and there is a need to develop effective clinical treatment strategies. Coupling buprenorphine/naloxone (B/N) maintenance with counseling is encouraged as a best practice, yet the efficacy research on individual counseling in B/N-based Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT) has been equivocal to date. In contrast, models for integrating B/N prescribing through group-based counseling could potentially have a differential impact, yet no systematic reviews have focused on examining the extent of the literature on group-based models of B/N delivery ...
While cases of opioid-induced respiratory depression (OIRD) and opioid overdoses continue to plague hospitals, research points to a naloxone education module as a tool for increasing staff knowledge and improving safety. Used properly, naloxone can counter the effects of OIRD; but mistakes by medical and surgical professionals can trigger sometimes-fatal withdrawal symptoms. After an initial study revealed room for improvement, researchers from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia tested the knowledge of 36 participants-20 of them anesthesia providers, including five PACU nurses-before and after completing a naloxone education module. The information covered proper administration of the opioid receptor antagonist, side effects, the drugs use in chronic opioid users, and proper management of an opioid overdose. "Most in the anesthesiology field scored rather well," according to lead study author Steve McGrath, MD. "However, those not as experienced with the medication did not score as ...
Opioid-related mortality is a growing problem in the United States, and in 2015 there were over 33,000 opioid-related deaths. To combat this mortality trend, naloxone is increasingly being utilized in a pre-hospital setting by emergency personnel and prescribed to laypersons for out-of-hospital administration. With increased utilization of naloxone there has been a subsequent reduction in mortality following an opioid overdose. Reversal of opioid toxicity may precipitate an opioid-withdrawal syndrome. At the same time, there is a risk of inadequate response or re-narcotization after the administration of a single dose of naloxone in patients who have taken large doses or long-acting opioid formulations, as the duration of effect of naloxone is shorter than that of many opioid agonists ...

Although these studies were conducted in rodents, its not far-fetched to say that the same primitive processes are occurring in the human brain, too. "The cravings never stopped, [but that was] probably psychological," Andrew told me. "But it got easier after the first week or so.". In a 2002 study by Carlo Colantuoni and colleagues of Princeton University, rats who had undergone a typical sugar dependence protocol then underwent "sugar withdrawal." This was facilitated by either food deprivation or treatment with naloxone, a drug used for treating opiate addiction which binds to receptors in the brains reward system. Both withdrawal methods led to physical problems, including teeth chattering, paw tremors, and head shaking. Naloxone treatment also appeared to make the rats more anxious, as they spent less time on an elevated apparatus that lacked walls on either side.. Similar withdrawal experiments by others also report behaviour similar to depression in tasks such as the forced swim test. ...

INTRODUCTION Opioid dependence is a chronic relapsing disorder that shows excess mortality and comorbidity with somatic and psychiatric disorders. Methadone and buprenorphine/naloxone are widely accepted and are used as first-line maintenance treatments for opioid dependence. Fatal intoxications with these agents, risk of diversion, and accidental intoxications, especially in children, are apparent risks and are of increasing public concern. Buprenorphine/naloxone sublingual tablet is an established treatment for opioid dependence. A novel buprenorphine/naloxone film has been developed with improved pharmacokinetics and a hopefully lower risk of diversion and accidental intoxications. AREAS COVERED This review evaluates the available preclinical and clinical data on the novel buprenorphine/naloxone film for the treatment of opioid dependence. Literature was identified though a comprehensive PubMed search and data sources included official FDA information. EXPERT OPINION This is an interesting new
Controlled Substance. Pentazocine and naloxone hydrochlorides tablets are a Schedule IV controlled substance.. There have been some reports of dependence and of withdrawal symptoms with orally administered pentazocine. Patients with a history of drug dependence should be under close supervision while receiving pentazocine orally. There have been rare reports of possible abstinence syndromes in newborns after prolonged use of pentazocine during pregnancy.. There have been instances of psychological and physical dependence on parenteral pentazocine in patients with a history of drug abuse and rarely, in patients without such a history. Abrupt discontinuance following the extended use of parenteral pentazocine has resulted in withdrawal symptoms.. In prescribing pentazocine for chronic use, the physician should take precautions to avoid increases in dose by the patient.. The amount of naloxone present in pentazocine and naloxone hydrochlorides tablets (0.5 mg per tablet) has no action when taken ...

In an effort to fight the addiction and overdose epidemic in the state of Pennsylvania, Governor Tom Wolf recently announced that members of the Pennsylvania Capitol Police are trained to carry and administer naloxone.. The administration took the step of signing a statewide standing order for naloxone in October. In November, all 89 Pennsylvania Capitol Police officers took a half-hour mandatory online training provided by the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police to administer naloxone. This was followed up with an additional 45-minute training to familiarize officers with the use of the EVZIO Auto-injector unit, which all officers now carry.. "Many times, Pennsylvania Capitol Police officers are called upon to assist local law enforcement agencies and are the first responders on scene," said Pennsylvania Department of General Services Secretary Curt Topper in a press statement. "In a situation such as a drug overdose, the ability to administer naloxone in a timely manner can be the difference between ...
An opioid antagonist, or opioid receptor antagonist, is a receptor antagonist that acts on one or more of the opioid receptors. Naloxone and naltrexone are commonly used opioid antagonist drugs which are competitive antagonists that bind to the opioid receptors with higher affinity than agonists but do not activate the receptors. This effectively blocks the receptor, preventing the body from responding to opioids and endorphins. Some opioid antagonists are not pure antagonists but do produce some weak opioid partial agonist effects, and can produce analgesic effects when administered in high doses to opioid-naive individuals. Examples of such compounds include nalorphine and levallorphan. However, the analgesic effects from these specific drugs are limited and tend to be accompanied by dysphoria, most likely due to additional agonist action at the κ-opioid receptor. As they induce opioid withdrawal effects in people who are taking, or have recently used, opioid full agonists, these drugs are ...

More than 50 officers from agencies in Monroe County, the Finger Lakes and Western New York receive training, medication for free. The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) today joined with two other state agencies to train law enforcement officers from departments in Monroe County, the Finger Lakes and Western New York in the use of naloxone, a medication that can save lives by reversing the effect of overdoses caused by heroin or other opioids, which include prescription drugs such as hydrocodone and oxycodone. The state also is providing agencies that send their officers to the trainings with supplies of naloxone at no cost.. DCJS, the Department of Health (DOH) and Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) collaborated with Albany Medical Center, the national Harm Reduction Coalition and other partners to develop the trainings, which are part of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomos comprehensive, statewide initiative to combat the rise of heroin use. The Governor ...
The endogenous opioid peptides are derived from three large precursors. Pro-opiocortin and proenkephalin yield [Met]enkephalin, carboxy-extended [Met]enkephalins and [Leu]enkephalin. The fragments of prodynorphin are all carboxy-extended [Leu]- enkephalins. Three approaches are of importance for an analysis of the physiological functions of the different endogenous opioid peptides. First, since these peptides interact with more than one of the μ-, δ- and K-binding sites and thus with their receptors, it is necessary to synthesize peptides or non-peptides, which bind to only one of the sites. As far as narcotic analgesics are concerned, morphine fulfils these conditions since it interacts almost exclusively with the μ-receptor. Secondly, antagonists are required that are selective for only one of the opioid receptors, even when used in high concentrations. Finally, it is important to find circumscribed areas in the nervous system that possess only one type of opioid receptor. It is now known ...
