New Painkiller to Be Released: No Side Effects, No Addiction

For years, pain sufferers have been fighting a difficult battle between the relief offered by pain killers and the unwanted side effects that came as a result of taking them. However, that war may finally come to an end, thanks to the work of a research team of Stony Brook University.

For the first time, it seems, pain may be able to be managed effectively with a prescription drug, but without the side effects. A new medication – not yet named – may result from these findings, which set out to prove that a medication aimed at blocking the sodium ion channel associated with sending pain signals, would provide the support sought after by millions of pain sufferers throughout the world.

This drug, which poses no known side effects, has the potential to eliminate pain for people diagnosed with cancer, arthritis, fibromyalgia, severe burns, migraines, and many other chronic syndromes. The number of possible uses is nearly infinite as so many chronic conditions produce unexplained pain signals that can become debilitating with time.

It was tested in both oral and topical formats and a second round (Phase II) of investigations is underway in England and Canada now. State Universities of New York’s Research Foundation holds all patents, but has formed a partnership with drug manufacturer, Pfizer.
