PMID:  6394006     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In summary, naloxone has proved to be effective and safe during its years of use for narcotic antagonism. Its usefulness in non-narcotic coma and shock remains controversial, although some encouraging but inconclusive evidence exists. The final answer lies on the horizon of medicine; it awaits further delineation of the role of endogenous opioids in health and disease and clear statistical verification of naloxone's efficacy in such disease states.
