Published Studies Related to Oxycodone and Aspirin (Oxycodone / Oxycodone / Aspirin)

Oxycodone-related side effects: impact on degree of bother, adherence, pain relief, satisfaction, and quality of life. [2011.05]
OBJECTIVES: Oxycodone immediate-release, alone or in combination (hereafter, oxycodone), is widely used to treat pain and is often associated with bothersome side effects. The objective was to assess side effect frequency, degree of bother, and impact on health-related quality of life (HRQoL)... CONCLUSIONS: The majority of survey respondents experienced side effects of oxycodone, with a majority being bothered by side effects and impacting their QoL. This raises a question about the unmet need for pain medications with improved side effect profiles.

Clinical Trials Related to Oxycodone and Aspirin (Oxycodone / Oxycodone / Aspirin)

Oxycodone-Naloxone in Relieving Opioid-Related Constipation [Active, not recruiting]
The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate that subjects with moderate to severe non-malignant pain taking oxycodone/naloxone prolonged release tablets have improvement in symptoms of constipation compared to subjects taking oxycodone prolonged release tablets alone.

Oxycodone-Naloxone Prolonged Release Tablets in Relieving Opioid-Related Constipation [Active, not recruiting]

Oxycodone for Labor Pain - Pharmacokinetics (PK), Safety and Efficacy [Not yet recruiting]
Childbirth is one of the most painful events that a woman is likely to experience, and thus is a major concern for most parturient. Severe pain releases stress mediators and may thus compromise fetus well-being if placental perfusion is decreased. Epidural analgesia is the golden standard for the management of severe labor pain. However, it could not always be used both due the parturient related factors and the organizational reasons. However, the knowledge on safety and efficacy of oxycodone involving mother, fetus and newborn is limited.

Aim of the study is firstly, to evaluate the efficacy and safety of oxycodone in labor pain healthy parturients. Secondly, to measure parturient's blood oxycodone concentration during labour and fetal concentration from placental umbilical vein and artery right after birth.

Controlled-Release Oxycodone For Postoperative Analgesia After Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery [Recruiting]
The main hypothesis of this study is that preoperative administration of controlled-release (CR) oxycodone may reduce acute postoperative pain and improve time to discharge from the post-anesthesia care unit in patients undergoing video-assisted thoracoscopy for spontaneous pneumothorax.

The study drug will be compared with intravenous morphine administered 30 minutes before the end of anesthesia.
