CYP2D6 genotyping was performed and 121 patients were allocated to the following genotype groups: PM (poor metabolizer: no functionally active CYP2D6 allele), HZ/IM (heterozygous subjects, intermediate metabolizers with decreased CYP2D6 activity), EM (extensive metabolizers, normal CYP2D6 activity) and UM (ultrarapid metabolizers, increased CYP2D6 activity). Primary endpoint was the genotype dependent metabolite ratio of plasma concentrations oxymorphone/oxycodone.
Abstract. The object of this study was to evaluate the metabolism of oxycodone to oxymorphone in a pain patient population using a quantitative liquid.
Study specimens were collected from pain physician practices monitoring patients on chronic opioid therapy to meet guidelines suggested by the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians and the American Society of Pain Medication ( 8 – 10 ). Specimens were shipped by overnight courier at ambient temperature. Many practices store specimens before pickup in refrigerators. On arrival, specimens were immediay processed for immunoassay and liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC–MS) analysis.
Oxycodone is extensively metabolized; only 10% of dose is excreted unchanged in urine (Poyhia et al., 1991; Kirvela et al., 1996). The known metabolic scheme.
To further define the saturation kinetics of oxymorphone and noroxycodone formation from oxycodone, as well as noroxymorphone from either oxymorphone or noroxycodone, incubations were performed over the substrate range of 1 to 750 μM in Supersomes expressing CYP3A4, 3A5, and 2D6*1, either with or without supplementation of cytochrome b 5 (i.e., at 3:1 molar ratio of cytochrome b 5 to P450).
Oxycodone is extensively metabolized; only 10% of dose is excreted unchanged in urine ( Poyhia et al., 1991 ; Kirvela et al., 1996 ).
The CYP3A4 enzyme is the primary metabolizer of fentanyl and oxycodone, although normally a small portion of oxycodone undergoes CYP2D6 metabolism to.
Most opioids are metabolized via CYP-mediated oxidation and have substantial drug interaction potential. In patients prescribed complicated treatment regimens, physicians may consider initiating treatment with an opioid that is not metabolized by the CYP system. The exceptions are morphine, hydromorphone, and oxymorphone, which undergo glucuronidation. However, interactions between opioids that undergo CYP-mediated metabolism and other drugs involved with this pathway often can be addressed by careful dose adjustments, vigilant therapeutic drug monitoring, and prompt medication changes in the event of serious toxicity.
The CYP3A4 enzyme metabolizes more than 50% of all drugs; consequently, opioids metabolized by this enzyme have a high risk of drug-drug interactions.
Oxycodone is a Schedule II controlled substance (strong potential for abuse or addiction but with legitimate medical use), which has been used.

Oxycodone has activity at opioid receptors μ and κ.3,11 The effects at the μ opioid receptors are analgesia, sedation, vomiting, respiratory depression, pruritus, euphoria, anorexia, urinary retention, and physical dependence. At the κ receptors the effects are analgesia, sedation, dyspnea, psychomimetic effects, miosis, respiratory depression, euphoria, and dysphoria.3 Metabolism and elimination.
With the cloning of these receptors as well as the generation of selective antibodies for each of the receptors, it was possible to map their distribution in the central nervous system.
