BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The effect of age on the distribution of morphine and morphine-3-glucuronide (M3G) across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) was studied in a sheep model utilizing intracerebral microdialysis. The effect of neonatal asphyxia on brain drug distribution was also studied. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH Microdialysis probes were inserted into the(More)
