Can Src protein tyrosine kinase inhibitors be combined with opioid analgesics? Src and opioid-induced tolerance, hyperalgesia and addiction

Li Y, Bao Y, Zheng H, Qin Y, Hua B (2021) Can Src protein tyrosine kinase inhibitors be combined with opioid analgesics? Src and opioid-induced tolerance, hyperalgesia and addiction. Biomed Pharmacother 139:111653. doi: 10.1016/j.biopha.2021.111653

Summary: In this review the authors discuss the important role Src protein tyrosine kinase plays in the adverse consequences of clinical application of opioids

Usage: Intrathecal injection of Mac-1-SAP depletes microglial cells in the spinal dorsal horn and alleviates the loss of anti-nociception of morphine and prevents the decrease in morphine potency. This demonstrates that spinal microglial cells are necessary for morphine tolerance (15 µg; Leduc-Pessah et al., 2017).
