JPET Special Section on the Opioid Crisis

October 22, 2019

An opioid crisis has taken hold in North America, unfortunately highlighted by over 47,600 overdose deaths due to opioid use in 2017 in the United States. The trans-National Institute of Health (NIH) initiative called the NIH HEAL (Helping to End Addiction long-term) has two primary therapeutic aims: (1) decreasing opioid-induced overdoses and opioid use disorder (OUD); (2) developing novel non-opioid and non-addictive based therapeutics for the treatment of chronic pain. The special section on the opioid crisis found in The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics November 2019 (371/2) issue addresses both preclinical and clinical aspects needed for a scientific response to this escalating crisis. All content in the special section is freely accessible through February 1, 2020.
