Targeting Cannabinoid Receptors for Relief of Neuropathic Pain

Working with partners from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and New York University (NYU), we have identified a series of compounds that operate in this novel way. In in vivo studies, our leading compound has shown that it can alleviate nerve pain without affecting the brain. It also shows promise because we have not found other harmful side effects, such as heart damage, and because it appears to shrink cancerous tumors while also relieving the pain they cause. Further tests will help us evaluate the compound's potential for tolerance. Read more here.
