Clinical Trial Summary

This study investigates brain reorganization and behavioral responses in chronic pain with opioid exposure in Chronic Back Pain (CBP).

Clinical Trial Description

Chronic back pain (CBP) is the most prevalent chronic pain condition in the US. Opiates are commonly prescribed to treat CBP; as such, these patients are a primary contributor to the current opioid epidemic. This study will assess the impact of opioid use on brain anatomy and function in those subjects taking opioids without opioid misuse disorder, as well as those subjects with opioid misuse disorder, relative to those with CBP and are not taking opioids and healthy controls. This is an observational study, that seeks to establish risk factors and brain biomarkers for opioid misuse disorder and relate brain adaptations to exposure to both opioids and chronic pain. This study also seeks to determine the impact of opioid use on cognitive, emotional, and motor abilities. ;
