As technology and medical advances continue to improve daily, there are increasingly impressive developments in many areas. Diseases, illnesses, and ailments that were once thought to be untreatable are becoming manageable each day. In recent months, Monash University has taken a closer step to helping those suffering from chronic and acute pain.
Monash University is a leading university in Australia and is ranked among the top one hundred universities in the world. They are a public university that specializes in research that can help change lives. With this new drug delivery strategy that they have recently released, they continue to advance their purpose. Monash University was founded in 1958 and is the second oldest university in the state of Victoria, Australia’s second-most populated state and the most densely populated state overall.
The revolutionary drug delivery strategy can block pain found within the nerve cells. This treatment could be immediate and also long-lasting, providing much-needed relief for the 100 million plus Americans who live with daily chronic pain. Up until this point, chronic and acute pain has been growing in likelihood but also very poorly treated. This new development will hopefully change that.
Researchers from Monash University developed drugs that target NK-1 receptors within the nerve cell. This is in comparison to current treatment methods that target NK-1 receptors on the cell’s surface. Blocking the receptors inside the cell was proven in animal studies to stop pain much more efficiently than past treatment methods.
With this new drug treatment process, the world may be facing a future full of people who no longer suffer from severe chronic and acute pain. Until now, the results of treatments for these patients have been grim. However, with the amazing work from researchers, scientists, and biologists, chronic pain patients may be able to live comfortably again.
As time goes on, medical discoveries and developments like this drug delivery method from Monash University will continue to surface. Ultimately helping those who need it most.
