People, we have some good news for you. Researchers from Charite - Universitatsmedizin Berlin have discovered a new way of developing painkillers.
This research has been published the journal Science.
The team of researchers used computational simulation to analyze interactions at opioid receptors - the cell's docking sites for painkillers. When used in an animal model, their prototype of a morphine-like molecule was able to produce substantial pain relief in inflamed tissues.
