According to a new research, the scientists said that an experimental ‘nano-painkiller’ could be safer, non-addictive alternative to the drugs fueling the current opioid crisis.
Nearly 70,237 Americans died of drug overdoses, driven by the epidemic in 2017 and also 1.5 billion people around the world suffer chronic pain that can make every day.
To be crystal clear, the race is on to make the next generation of painkillers without addiction.
However, the experts said that the nano-painkiller’s effects seemed to last longer than morphine’s did as the drug was acting on more peripheral opioid receptors, it presents less danger of addiction.
In case, if the nano-painkiller proves safe for humans, it can be a good choice for the pain control in the future.
