Nitazenes (2-benzylbenzimidazoles) are highly potent new synthetic opioids (NSO) that have recently emerged onto the recreational drug market.


Several international reports of severe toxicity involving nitazenes, especially isotonitazene, have highlighted the significant threat they pose to public health and safety.


Toxicology laboratories should ensure that nitazenes are included in forensic testing protocols and remain vigilant in relation to the rapidly expanding class of NSOs.
