Research Summary

The laboratory work on isolated cardiomyocytes, intact hearts and whole animals demonstrates that the opiates simulate ischemic preconditioning thus protecting the heart from damage by its loss of blood supply. We have shown this in a human population maintained on methadone for the treatment of heroin addiction. See referenced work in bibliography

Research Interests

1) Substance misuse/AIDS/hepatitis C/Heroin Dependency and addiction 2)alcohol dependency and its treatment 3) Cardioprotective effect of the opiates and opioids especially methadone HCl
