N Engl J Med. 2010;363(8):711–23. 4 Pharmacogenetics of Pain in Cancer Pål Klepstad Abstract The efficacy of opioids varies between individual cancer pain patients. This relates both to the needed dose and to responses to different opioids. Opioid pharmacology is complex and genes coding several pharmacological elements are proposed to explain some of the variability in opioid response. This includes opioid metabolism, opioid receptors, opioid transport through the blood–brain barrier, inflammation, and mechanisms modifying opioid signalling.
