The oxidative – antioxidative balance is the crucial mechanism of opioid-induced immunomodulation. Additionally, impairement of cognitive function during opioid therapy is another important side- effect. This phenomenon was clearly described in opioids abuse. This is interesting to evaluate the importance of this subjects in chronic pain patients. The aim of the study was to investigate the oxidative – antioxidative homeostasis and cognitive functions using serum total oxidative capacity (TOC) and total antioxidative capacity (TAC) tests and Brain Derivered Neutrophic Factor (BDNF) in patient with chronic non-cancer pain treated with opioids.
