Long-term intrathecal morphine influence on major compounds of the endocrine system in elderly population

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.
