Dr. Paul Janssen was the founder of Janssen Pharmaceutica and the developer of over 80 pharmaceutical compounds that proved useful in human, botanical, and veterinary medicine. He and his coworkers synthesized the fentanyl family of drugs, many other potent analgesics, droperidol, etomidate, and numerous other important medicines that were extremely useful in psychiatry, parasitology, gastroenterology, cardiology, virology, and immunology. Anesthesiology and medicine as a whole have benefited a… Expand
The consolidation of neuroleptic therapy: Janssen, the discovery of haloperidol and its introduction into clinical practice
TLDR
Clinical development of haloperidol was conducted, primarily, by psychiatric research team at the University of Liège that confirmed its efficacy in the treatment of various psychiatric disorders such as acute and chronic paranoid psychosis, mania, or chronic treatment-resistant schizophrenia. Expand
DARK Classics in Chemical Neuroscience: Carfentanil.
TLDR
The background, synthesis, manufacture, metabolism, pharmacology, approved indications, dosage, and adverse effects of carfentanil will be discussed along with its emergence as a key player in the ongoing opioid crisis. Expand
Fentanyl and its derivatives as a group of new psychoactive substances (designer drugs)
TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to present various formulations ofentanyl and to discuss the properties of fentanyl and its derivatives, with particular emphasis on the toxicity of this group of compounds. Expand
The fentanyl story.
  • T. Stanley
  • Medicine
  • The journal of pain : official journal of the American Pain Society
  • 2014
TLDR
The data indicate that fentanyl's popularity has occurred because it has minimal cardiovascular effects, does not result in increases in plasma histamine, is relatively short in onset of action and duration of effect, is easy and inexpensive to synthesize and prepare for the marketplace, and is now familiar to clinicians working in pain and perioperative medicine throughout the world. Expand
DARK Classics in Chemical Neuroscience: Fentanyl.
TLDR
The impact of fentanyl on chemical neuroscience is shown through its synthesis and properties, manufacturing, metabolism, pharmacology, approved and off-label indications, adverse effects, and the responsibility it has in the opioid epidemic. Expand
The fall and rise of pharmacology--(re-)defining the discipline?
TLDR
The integration of newer technologies within a pharmacological context where research is driven by testable hypotheses rather than technology, together with renewed efforts in teaching pharmacology, is anticipated to improve the focus and relevance of biomedical research and lead to novel therapeutics that will contain health care costs. Expand
The Pharmacology of Spinal Opioids and Ziconotide for the Treatment of Non-Cancer Pain
TLDR
Intrathecal therapy has level-one evidence for use for malignant pain and nonmalignant pain, with continued cost savings and improved safety, and a clear appreciation for the pharmacology of commonly employed intrathecal agents is paramount. Expand
Fentanyls continue to replace heroin in the drug arena: the cases of ocfentanil and carfentanil
TLDR
This review provides information concerning chemistry, synthesis, prevalence, pharmacology, and toxicology, as well as the current legal status of these two fentanyl analogues, which are undeniably very dangerous opioid drugs. Expand
Fentanyl: Receptor pharmacology, abuse potential, and implications for treatment
TLDR
The receptor, preclinical and clinical pharmacology of fentanyl is reviewed, and how its pharmacology may predict the effectiveness of currently approved medications for treating illicit fentanyl use is reviewed. Expand
The opioid-P2Y12 inhibitor interaction: Potential strategies to mitigate the interaction and consideration of alternative analgesic agents in myocardial infarction.
TLDR
This review characterizes the mechanism of the opioid-P2Y12 inhibitor interaction, strategies aimed at mitigating the interaction and appraises promising alternative agents to opioid therapy in patients with myocardial infarction. Expand

The psychology of his inventiveness was the basis of his unique fecundity and Paul’s intense concentration and passionate commitment were unique in the industry. Expand
Sufentanil, a very potent and extremely safe intravenous morphine-like compound in mice, rats and dogs.
Sufentanil (R 30 730), N-[4-methoxymethyl)-1-[2-(2-thienyl)ethyl]-4-piperidinyl]-N-phenylpropanamide, is a chemically novel, highly potent and extremely safe intravenous morphine-like agent inExpand
Compounds related to pethidine-IV. New general chemical methods of increasing the analgesic activity of pethidine.
TLDR
New experimental evidence is presented to present new experimental evidence in this field and certain tentative generalizations concerning the structure-activity problem of compounds related to pethidine are arrived at. Expand
Alfentanil (R 39 209) — a particularly short‐acting intravenous narcotic analgesic in rats
TLDR
Alfentanil reaches its peak effect within 2 min after injection, and its duration of action is very short: at two times its lowest ED50 the drug has aduration of action of 10 min. Expand
Cardiovascular response to large doses of intravenous morphine in man.
TLDR
In the cardiac but not in the normal subjects, significant increases in cardiac index, stroke index, central venous pressure, and pulmonary-artery pressure were observed after morphine was administered, suggesting that large doses of morphine may be used with safety in patients with minimal circulatory reserve.

NEUROLEPT‐ANALGESIA—AN ALTERNATIVE TO GENERAL ANAESTHESIA
An account is given of the pharmacological characteristics of haloperidol and phenoperidine, as manifested in experimental animals.
N-4-Substituted 1-(2-arylethyl)-4-piperidinyl-N-phenylpropanamides, a novel series of extremely potent analgesics with unusually high safety margin.
TLDR
R 30 730 has a rapid onset of action and is 4521 times more potent than morphine at the time of peak effect; it has a relatively short duration of action comparable to that of fentanyl and its safety margin is unusually high. Expand
