Hot Topics in Pain Management [August 2016] 9 ABSTRACT Background. Pain management has been considered as significant contributor to broad quality-of-life improvement for cancer patients. Modulating serum cholesterol levels affects analgesia abilities of opioids, important pain killer for cancer patients, in mice system. Thus the correlation between opioids usages and cholesterol levels were investigated in human patients with lung cancer. Methods. Medical records of 282 patients were selected with following criteria, 1) signed inform consent, 2) full medical records on total serum cholesterol levels and opioid administration, 3) opioid-naïve, 4) not received/receiving cancer-related or cholesterol lowering treatment, 5) pain level at level 5–8. The patients were divided into different groups basing on their gender and cholesterol levels. Since different opioids, morphine, oxycodone, and Opioid Doses Required for Pain Management in Lung Cancer Patients with Different Cholesterol Levels: Negative Correlation Between Opioid Doses and Cholesterol Levels Lipids in Health and Disease 2016;15:47 DOI: 10.1186/s12944-016-0212-9 by ZHENHUA HUANG †,1 , LINING LIANG †,2 , LINGYU LI, †,2,3 MIAO XU, 4–6 XIANG LI, 2 HAO SUN, 2 SONGWEI HE, 2 LILONG LIN, 2 YIXIN ZHANG, 2 YANCHENG SONG, 7 MAN YANG, 8 YULING LUO, 8 HORACE H.
