The purpose of this research study is to identify factors and genes (the nucleic acid material that determines the makeup of the human body) that may be associated with how children respond to pain medication, like morphine, which are called opioids. Though these pain medicines are used every day, some children have bad reactions from their use, like breathing problems, sedation, etc. It is not possible to completely predict which pain medicine is 'right' for a child. The investigators want to study factors that may be associated with pain sensitivity, pain medicine requirements after surgery, and their side-effects. The investigators expect that the information obtained in this research study will help to develop effective, safer, and tailored treatment options in the future.


Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Non-Interventional Pharmacogenetic Study of Patient / Proxy Controlled Analgesia in Children Undergoing Surgery

Further study details as provided by Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of adverse events [ Time Frame: 48 hours post-operatively ]
    Postoperative incidence of significant central adverse effects to opioids (respiratory depression, excessive sedation and postoperative nausea and vomiting - PONV)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Post-operative pain [ Time Frame: 48 hours postoperatively ]
    Post-surgical pain scores at rest and on mobilization, opioid requirements/48 hours postoperatively.

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
A database/ repository will be constructed for future research, analysis, and recruitment. De-identified study participants' genetic information, their responses to pain and pain medications, and side-effects will be included in a study database. Blood specimens will be included in the repository for exploring potentially important SNPs and biomarkers in future. No patient identifiers will be included in the database, and there will be a confidential (access limited to investigators only) code or link between the database and other information about the participant.

Estimated Enrollment: 650

Estimated Study Completion Date: May 21, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 21, 2021 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

Opioids are the mainstay for treatment of postoperative pain in children. Experience dictates that opioids have narrow therapeutic indices and large inter-patient variability in response. This leads to serious side effects like respiratory depression in up to 50% of children undergoing invasive surgery, which can be fatal. Moreover, up to two-thirds of the inter-individual variability in response to opioids results from genetic variations both from variability in pain perception as well as response to the pain medicine. Much of the inter-individual variability in response to opioids following surgical procedures can be explained by Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) in a subset of the genes that encode proteins involved in pain perception, opioid transport/metabolism (pharmacokinetics), and opioid receptor signaling (pharmacodynamics). It is evident that there are particular children who are more susceptible to suffering side effects and having inadequate pain relief from opioids. Identifying genetic and non-genetic predictors for this susceptibility is vital for safe and effective analgesia in children. This is a critical knowledge gap in medical literature that significantly impacts pediatric pain management. The investigators' central hypothesis is that specific genetic polymorphisms in genes involved in pain perception, opioid transport, and opioid receptor signaling pathways contribute significantly to pain sensitivity, opioid side-effects, and analgesic efficacy in children.

The choice and dosing of opioids has thus far been largely empirical, with a frequent need to switch opioids and alter doses due to inherent differences in individuals. By this study, the investigators hope to determine the 'right' doses of the 'right' opioids for optimized and safe postoperative analgesia in children. Given the unexplored nature of this complex phenomenon, The investigators propose a comprehensive study to evaluate gene, drug, and surgical interactions, in a large sample of 650 children undergoing different surgeries, requiring patient controlled analgesia with opioids.

The proposed research is a preliminary step towards the investigators' long term goal to develop more effective, safer, and tailored pediatric opioid analgesia, by contributing to better understanding of the underlying genetic basis for variations in the sensitivity to pain, pain relief, and development of adverse effects from the extended use of postoperative intravenous opioids in children.

The data collected will include pain scores, opioid doses, incidence of side-effects of opioids ̶ including respiratory depression, sedation, vomiting, and itching. Data analysis will use advanced logistic regression techniques to uncover the association between the SNP variants and the response to specific opioids following various surgeries.

Individual Participant Data (IPD) Sharing Statement:
Plan to Share IPD: Yes
Plan Description: De-identified data may be shared with additional internal or external data warehouses/investigators. These include but are not limited to the i2b2-Research Data Warehouse protocol at CCHMC (IRB 2008-0834) for the purpose of linking this data to a de-identified copy of the participant's electronic medical record via an i2b2 database. The resulting de-identified i2b2 database will not be part of this research; but will be used to explore secondary phenotypes in future research studies and documented in the NIH-db-GaP (Database of Genotypes and Phenotypes).
