Effects of naloxone on self-injurious behavior: a case study


, : Effects of naloxone on self-injurious behavior: a case study. Applied Research in Mental Retardation 4(1): 1-4

A clinical trial of naloxone to treat head banging behavior in a severely mentally retarded 8-year-old boy is reported. A double blind procedure was employed to concurrently contrast effects of two dosages of naloxone with saline solution placebo. No quantitatively measurable change in response rate occurred compared either with baseline or placebo. However a qualitative reduction in intensity of response was noted clinically. Implications for the use of beta-endorphine therapy for self-injurious behavior was discussed.

In the Amazonian agricultural frontier, pasture for cattle ranching is an important and potentially hazardous form of land use because of sediment erosion as pastures degrade. This relationship between ranching, sediment load, and water quality is...
