Scientists said on October 9 they had discovered a very small group of spinal nerves that might be responsible for chronic pain, and a "time-bomb" drug that shuts them off. Tests in rats showed it was possible to turn off the "bad" pain, such as hypersensitivity that plagues arthritis sufferers, for example, without costing them the "good" pain reflexes that keep the body away from a hot flame. Researchers worked on a small number of cells that snagged substance P, a peptide known to be involved in pain. The image shows one of these "bad" pain cells (yellow) surrounded by normal cells (red).
