Anyone else see a news report on possible new form of opioids?

Hi anyone one else see the news story on a new opioids they claim will be non addictive but works well on pain. Something about it binding with t-cells in the brain. Any how wont help any of us right now. They are still testing it on mice and it will be atleast 2 more years till they test on human. But....didnt they claim at one time oxycontin was non addictive? Hmmm

    boo9989 - If I read about the same lab trial drug, it is being called Cyt-1010.  If you google it, you will see a lot of articles.

  • Likely no generic for a while so it will be expensive with a plan, but if it works well I'm in.

    boo9989 - I found the work being done at UNC.  It is a different drug than Cyt-1010.  From what I read, both drugs have not yet reached Human Clinical Trials. 
    Why no name yet?  I think drugs are only given a name once they reach Human Trials, I don't know which phase.  Sometimes it is worth being part of the human trials. 

  • well, if a drug that reduces pain as well as opiates and is truly non addicting actually comes to market, I would assume the trumpets will be blaring while specks of gold is sprinkled from the sky

    I can’t see how it would not be prohibitively expensive to the common man...don’t forget they have to supply all of the pillheads with free ones to keep them going

    ...and a generic would be years away

    ....but I may be totally wrong and the drug company may feel sorry for the so called pill epidemic and make them really cheap
