AB - IN: U California Ctr for Health Science, School of Public Health, Los Angeles LA: English AB: Levo-

alpha-acetylmethadol (LAAM), an opioid with a duration of action up to 72 hrs, relieved pain and eliminated

abuse of opioids in 3 of 4 patients (aged 26-62 yrs) who had chronic pain secondary to permanent,

anatomical alterations. LAAM appears particularly suited to chronic pain patients who require opioid

analgesia but abuse opioids. (14 ref) (PsycLIT Database Copyright 1984 American Psychological Assn, all
