  1. 1. Oxycodone in Forensic Toxicology : Analytical Strategies and Interpretation

    Author : Gerd Jakobsson; Robert Kronstrand; Henrik Gréen; Jørgen Bo Hasselstrøm; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oxycodone; Post mortem toxicology; Drug-drug interactions; Post mortem metabolomics;

    Abstract : Oxycodone is a common finding in forensic casework and widely used as an analgetic. Oxycodone’s pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties make the interpretation of post mortem oxycodone blood concentrations complicated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Testosterone Use and Abuse : Methodological Aspects in Forensic Toxicology and Clinical Diagnostics

    Abstract : Abuse of anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) is widespread in society and is today a major public health problem, associated with mental and somatic adverse effects and risk behavior, such as use of other illicit drugs and criminality. Testosterone, the most important endogenous male androgen, is therapeutically used in replacement therapy but is also extensively used as a doping agent. READ MORE

  3. 3. Postmortem toxicology : aspects on interpretation

    Author : Per Holmgren; Jörg Mörland; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Postmortem toxicology is a matter of analytical chemistry and the consequent interpretation of the results. Thus, both parts are of great importance to come to the right conclusion or the most probable explanation of the analytical results. READ MORE

  4. 4. Forensic Toxicological Aspects of Tramadol : Focus on Enantioselective Drug Disposition and Pharmacogenetics

    Author : Pernilla Haage; Fredrik Kugelberg; Robert Kronstrand; Espen Molden; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : One of the most difficult parts in forensic toxicology is to interpret obtained drug concentrations. Was it therapeutic, toxic or even lethal to the particular individual that the blood sample was drawn from? Concentrations of opioid drugs are especially difficult to interpret, because of large interindividual differences in innate and acquired tolerance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Zopiclone degradation in biological samples : Characteristics and consequences in forensic toxicology

    Author : Gunnel Nilsson; Robert Kronstrand; Fredrik C. Kugelberg; Johan Ahlner; Mikael Hedeland; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Bio-analytical results are influenced by in vivo factors such as genetics, pharmacological and physiological conditions and in vitro factors such as specimen composition, sample additives and storage conditions. Zopiclone (ZOP) is a short-acting hypnotic drug (Imovane®) used for treatment of insomnia. READ MORE
