New Study Highlights Differences in Neuropathic Pain Relief for Men and Women

A new Duquesne University study using a nanomedicine that targets neuropathic pain at its source found that while males and females develop pain-like behavior to the same degree, the nanomedicine provided less relief for females.

The study marks the latest findings of the university's Chronic Pain Research Consortium (CPRC), a multidisciplinary collaboration by Dr. Jelena Janjic (founder/co-director) and Dr. John Pollock (co-director).  A key component of this study is the application of the first inflammatory pain nanomedicine created by Dr. Janjic, which directly targets the source of pain.
