The Authors make an analysis of the complex interactions occurring between peripheral and central factors in the regulation of anginal pain. As for the role of the endogenous opioid system, results obtained in a study using a particular methodological approach have demonstrated that patients with asymptomatic ischemic heart disease have a higher endogenous opioid tone at the level of the central nervous system.
