  • 1. Structure-activity relationship studies with new semi-synthetic isomorphine derivatives revealed that substitution of an azido group in position 6 (azidomorphines) greatly increases the analgesic potency whereas tolerance and dependence liability tend to decrease. 2. Azidomorphine (6-deoxy-6-azidodihydroisomorphine) and 14-hydroxyazidomorphine (6-deoxy-6-azidodihydro-14-hydroxyisomorphine) being in animal tests 40-300 times more potent than morphine, are the most effective analgesics among… CONTINUE READING
