How much oxycodone is needed for adequate analgesia after breast cancer surgery: effect of the OPRM1 118A>G polymorphism.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Most clinically used opioids are mu-opioid receptor agonists. Therefore, genetic variation of the OPRM1 gene that encodes the mu-opioid receptor is of great interest for understanding pain management. A polymorphism 118A>G (rs1799971) within the OPRM1 gene results in a missense mutation and affects the function of the receptor. We studied the… (More)
