Current Clinical Trial
The Study to Assess Longer-Term Opioid Medication Effectiveness (SALOME) is a clinical trial that will test whether hydromorphone (Dilaudid®), a licensed medication, is as good as diacetylmorphine, the active ingredient of heroin, at helping people who suffer from chronic opioid addiction and who are not benefiting sufficiently from other treatments.
This study will also test if participants who are effectively treated with these two injectable medications can be successfully transferred to the oral form of the medications. This three-year study began in December 2011.
If you have questions about taking part in the study, please contact the recruitment team at 604-682-7515. To learn more about SALOME, view our Salome videos on our YouTube page and visit our SALOME website.
