How are SALOME and NAOMI trials related?

"In the NAOMI study, a small group of patients received hydromorphone (Dilaudid®) instead of diacetylmorphine in a double-blind basis (nor the patients or staff knew which drug they were receiving), for the purpose of validation of self-reported use of street heroin in urine toxicological tests. An unexpected finding was that injection patients could not accurately discriminate whether they were receiving diacetylmorphine or hydromorphone."
