The National Institute on Drug Abuse intends to publish a Request for Applications (RFA) titled: Prescription Opioid Abuse and Pain . The notice for the RFA is expected to be published in October 2005 with applications to be submitted and considered for funding in FY2006. This RFA will support research on the dependence, abuse and addiction potential of opioids prescribed therapeutically for pain. NIDA understands that an array of definitions of drug “dependence,” “abuse” and “addiction” are used. It will be a requirement of this RFA that all applications have detailed and precise definitions of opioid dependence, abuse and addiction, if applicable. Research elucidating factors (including pain itself) that predispose or protect pain patients from opioid dependence, abuse and addiction will be encouraged. Further, research on the treatment of opioid dependence, abuse and addiction in pain patients will be encouraged. The RFA will be designed to encourage a broad range of research including behavioral, neuroscience, genetics, developmental neuroscience, treatment development, epidemiology, prevention and services research, and will include both animal and human studies.
