New Class of Decoy Molecules that Prevent the Onset of Pain

Dr. Zachary Campbell, who researches pain on the molecular level at the University of Texas at Dallas, recently published a study in the journal Nature Communications that describes a new method of reducing pain-associated behaviors with RNA-based medicine, creating a new class of decoy molecules that prevent the onset of pain. The approach blocks the creation of the proteins that set pain in motion after an injury. Credit: University of Texas at Dallas
