For cancer patients with inadequate pain relief, a switch to an alternative opioid is the preferred option for symptomatic improvement. However, multiple opioids are often simultaneously administered for anecdotal reasons.
The present study isdesigned to assess the analgesic profiles of two different strategies in chronic cancer pain: the opioid rotation from oxycodone to transdermal fentanyl and the combination of oral oxycodone and transdermal fentanyl.
