Example text

For many drugs, the first step (phase I) in metabolism is being catalyzed by the cytochrome P450 (mixed-function oxidase) system of the endoplasmic reticulum (microsomal fraction). Cytochrome P450 is actually a large family of isozymes, members of which vary with species, gender, and age. Each has its own spectrum of substrates and can be independently influenced by induction and inhibition. Selective forms of cytochrome P450 (CYP) are shown in Table 1-2. Among the implications of this table is that patients lacking the CYP2D6 isozyme will obtain little or no pain relief from codeine, since CYP2D6 converts codeine to morphine, the active analgesic metabolite of codeine.

However, transient silent myocardial ischemia was less frequent in all groups, including the placebo group. It was once thought that internal mammary artery ligation improved angina until studies showed similar benefit in patients where a sham operation was performed—that is, skin incision with no ligation. 36,37 Objectively, a patient undergoing the sham operation had an increase in work tolerance from 4 to 10 minutes with no inversion of T waves on ECG and no pain. 39 They point out that although the pathophysiology of coronary artery disease is well known, the awareness of many of the expressions of myocardial ischemia are subjective, rendering the placebo effect more important.

20,21 These reactions were recorded without the patient’s or physician’s knowledge that a placebo had been administered. 22 The first patient experienced overwhelming weakness, palpitation, and nausea after taking placebo. The second patient experienced a diffuse rash that disappeared after discontinuing placebo administration. 22 Indeed, due to the substantial evidence of placebo “efficacy” and placebo “adverse effects” or nocebo effects,5 some have wittingly suggested that if placebo were submitted to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for approval, the agency, although impressed with the efficacy data, would probably recommend disapproval based on the high incidence of adverse effects.
