New Options in Pain Management

Is there such a thing as pain relief without side effects? Recently developed acetaminophen analogs may offer just that. These alternatives to common pain management medications (1), developed by a team from the USA and Spain, were found to relieve pain and reduce fever in mice. Importantly, unlike many readily available OTC nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, they weren’t shown to cause addiction or to damage the liver or kidneys of the animal models used. The positive results prompted the collaborators to license the technology they used to develop the new compounds to Sun Rampart Pharma, a biotech company committed to the development of drugs for chronic, acute postoperative, and neuropathic pain.

After finishing my degree, I envisioned a career in science communications. However, life took an unexpected turn and I ended up teaching abroad. Though the experience was amazing and I learned a great deal from it, I jumped at the opportunity to work for Texere. I'm excited to see where this new journey takes me!
