The analgesic efficacy and tolerability of a morphine agonist-antagonist buprenorphine are evaluated. The drug is compared to pentazocin. For this purpose, the drugs were randomly administered to 42 patients suffering from pain caused by advanced cancer. Buprenorphine demonstrated a significantly higher analgesic effect than pentazocin and was better tolerated.
