Brief description Chronic pain from damage to the nervous system is difficult to treat. A new type of drug has recently been developed from sea snail venom to treat chronic pain but is given by injection, which limits its use. Our research has developed a stable molecule that has analgesic activity when ingested. This proposal focuses on further testing to fully establish this molecule's therapeutic potential. This information can then attract a commercial partner to bring the new drug into general use.
