We previously showed that intrathecal opioid therapy significantly influences the homeostasis of immune and endocrine systems. Other authors confirmed that exogenous and endogenous opioids induce this effect. They have a cytokine-like behavior and may function as neurotransmitters, neuromodulators or hormones, as concerning their synthesis, storage and release.
