Topics from this paper

Development of 5-Substituted N-Methylmorphinan-6-ones as Potent Opioid Analgesics with Improved Side-Effect Profile
TLDR
14-alkoxy-N-methylmorphinan-6-ones having a methyl and benzyl group at position 5 are reported on as strong opioid antinociceptive agents with reduced propensity to cause undesired effects compared to morphine although interacting selectively with MORs.
Study on the Activation of the Opioid Receptors by a Set of Morphine Derivatives in a Well-Defined Assay System
TLDR
This is the first comparative and comprehensive report on the activation of the three different opioid receptors by a set of morphine derivatives in a well-defined assay system and it is noteworthy that the 6-O-methyl group seems to improve the selectivity for κ receptor.
Kappa opioids and the modulation of pain
TLDR
The pharmacological profile of Kop agonists in visceral pain models suggest that peripherally restricted KOP agonists are potentially useful for a variety of peripheral pain states.
Metopon and two unique derivatives: affinity and selectivity for the multiple opioid receptors.
TLDR
Findings demonstrate metopon and its isomer bound with high affinity to the mu-opioid receptor and produced antinociception through this receptor.
N-Methyl and N-cyclopropylmethyl-14α,14′β-[dithiobis[(2-oxo-2,1-ethanediyl)imino]]bis(7,8-dihydro-5β-methyl-morphinone) MET-TAMO and N-CPM-MET-TAMO: Synthesis and opioid binding properties
Abstract MET-TAMO and N-CPM-MET-TAMO were prepared by the same procedure used for the corresponding 5-desmethyl compounds, TAMO and N-CPM-TAMO, except that a new procedure was employed to synthesize
Nature of the receptor sites for galactosyl-specific lectins on human lymphocytes.
TLDR
The results show that the bulk of the receptors for peanut agglutinin (PNA) and ricin (RCA 60) are glycoproteins, whereas those for Ricinus communis agglUTinin(RCA 120) and soybean agglutanin (SBA) are distributed nearly equally between membrane glycoproteinins and glycolipids.
Pharmacology of Morphinans
TLDR
This chapter presents the pharmacology of morphinans, which shows how the sensitivity of the organism to this substance diminishes with increasing dosage, which necessitates a continual increase of the dosage to maintain the full analgesic effect.
Clinical pharmacology of potent analgesics
TLDR
The object of this review is to summarize the current knowledge of morphine and morphinelike drugs and to suggest that if used wisely, morphine, the oldest agent, is still one of the best.
A STEREOTYPED RESPONSE INDUCED BY MESCALINE IN MICE AS A MEANS OF INVESTIGATING THE PROPERTIES OF DRUGS ACTING ON THE CNS
TLDR
The effects of mescaline on spontaneous activity of mice placed in special cages have been studied and the typical response has been recorded and assessed in terms of percentage of animals showing the effect.
The chemistry of drugs of addiction.

TLDR
Only within a given chemical series with a specific similarity of biologic action, can one predict liability to addiction, whatever their chemistry, drugs which produce effects pleasurable to certain individuals may result in addiction.
