Davis, P.I.  Blood to CNS Drug  Uptake  in Pain states.  In this grant we study pain and opioid versus non-opioid drug  effects on tight junction protein “leak” at the BBB. We also characterize the in vivo, drug-drug interaction (DDI) mechanisms associated with this paracellular leak at the BBB tight junctions during acute and chronic pain. Our  most recent work implicates “over the counter ” pain therapeutics, such as acetaminophen, in DDI and drug-transporter interactions with potent opioids co-administered. Our discovery of this DDI at the BBB is a valid concern since Tylenol 2,3,4 used clinically today contains acetaminophen plus codeine in the formulary.

$3,487,500. N.I.H. 5 R01-NS42652-12-17.  2001-2018.Thomas P. Davis, P.I. Blood Brain Barrier Changes Induced by Pain. This grant is designed to study the molecular signaling mechanisms associated with P- glycoprotein (PgP) transporter trafficking at the BBB as effected by pain. Our hypothesis is that PgP-associated and neighboring proteins, signal activation and trafficking of PgP during pain that increases PgP activity and alters PgP localization from the nucleus to the plasma membrane, where it limits / regulates analgesic drug delivery  to the CNS. Our recent findings suggest that PgP trafficking events contribute directly to decreased opioid drug efficacy and pain relief.
