These findings indicate differences in the development of opioid tolerance (and possibly in receptor desensitization and recycling) under pathological situations. Future studies are necessary on the development of opioid receptor tolerance in the presence of postoperative pain, arthritis, or other types of inflammatory and chronic pain. Several investigators have focused on the concept that tolerance can be counteracted by NMDA receptor antagonists (Mao 1999; Price et al. 2000). NMDA receptors are a subclass of excitatory amino acid receptors that, once activated, facilitate calcium influx into neurons.

Although the alkaloid morphine was isolated in the early 1800s the structure of morphine was identified only in 1925 by Gullard and Robinson (Fig. 3a). It was hypothesized that the piperidine ring is essential for its pharmacological activity. The nitrogen atom of this ring is normally positively charged and can interact with Fig. 3a–d Structures of classical opioid receptor agonists: a morphine, b the 4phenylpiperidine fentanyl, and c the diphenylpropylamine methadone. d Structure of the classical opioid receptor antagonist naloxone Opioids 43 a negatively charged counterpart.
