Formulation of Fentanyl for the Management of PainJournal: Drugs (January 2010)

Authors: Grape S, Schug SA, Lauer S, et al.

Purpose: To evaluate the formulations of Fentanyl and its indications and efficacy for treating pain.

Results: “While oral administration is not an option due to a high first-pass metabolism, its high potency and lipophilicity have made a number of new routes of administration feasible. The transdermal therapeutic system offers an excellent option for long-term treatment of cancer and chronic pain, achieving stable plasma concentrations over the treatment period.”
