ConclusionsImpingement-type bony morphology was related to cartilage defects, but not labral tear. Hip pain was not associated with pathology or bony morphology. Longitudinal studies are warranted to determine if bony features, such as cam morphology, acetabular retroversion or anteversion, are precursors to symptomatic hip joint injury or osteoarthritis.

The objective was to characterize the pharmacological profile of 17-cyclopropylmethyl-6,7-didehydro-4,5α-epoxy-6′-ethoxycarbonyl-3,14-dihydroxyindolo [2′,3′-6,7]morphinan (TAN-452), a novel peripherally acting opioid receptor antagonist.Main methodsThe in vitro binding affinity for the μ-, δ-, and κ-opioid receptors (MOR, DOR, and KOR) and the inhibition of [35S]GTPγS binding were examined using membrane preparations from recombinant human (h) MOR, DOR, or KOR expressing cell. In vivo assays were performed to determine the inhibitory effect of TAN-452 on morphine-induced emesis ...
