U-47700 is an opioid developed by a team of scientific researchers at the pharmaceutical firm Upjohn in the late 1970s. The drug was later patented after animal testing, by Jacob Szmuszkovicz. However, due to publicly available research and detailed instructions, U-47700 was created in underground Chinese laboratories and distributed worldwide.

Initially intended to treat severe pain from surgery and cancer, the drug was never studied on human’s due to relegated research. The substance is expected to produce effects similar to those of other potent opioid agonists, including string analgesia, sedation, euphoria, constipation, itching and respiratory depression which could be harmful or fatal. At low doses U-47700 is reported to slow the breath moderately, with higher doses and overdoses causing abnormal breathing patterns and loss of consciousness, which could lead to a fatal brain damage.

In animal models U-47700 has been shown to have potency 7.5 times greater than the classical medicinal opiate morphine. Not fit for human or animal consumption, U-47700 is reported to have caused significantly greater sedation than comparable opiates, oxycodone and hydrocodone. As a result, the dangerous substance was added to a list of Schedule I drugs in the US on 14th November 2016.

The alleged street name of U-47700 is “Pinky” or “Pink” and was previously cheaply available online from research chemical warehouses. Rolling Stone Magazine reported overdose deaths from U-47700 across various US states, most notably the overdose death of Prince, caused by a combination of Fentanyl and U-47700. The Annuals of Emergency Medicine’s 2016 toxicology report stated that U-47700 was being combined with Fentanyl and regularly sold on the streets to replace the prescription drug, Norco.

In recent years U-47700 has become highly noticed by law enforcement and emergency services, with forensic laboratories continuing to look for the substance in routine procedures.
