The way to save hundreds of thousands of people from death is found


The American scientists have developed AT-121 anesthetic which is stronger than morphine, doesn't cause accustoming and dangerous side effects. The Science Alert edition reports about it. Researchers hope that medicine will help to reduce number of death caused by dependence on the drugs killing pain and their overdoses. In 2012 in only one USA because of application of opioid analgetics more than 16 thousand people have died. New connection influences Μ-opioid receptors (PESTILENCE) and receptors of a notsitseptin — proteinaceous molecules in brain neurons. The PESTILENCE are targets for traditional soothing, and receptors of a notsitseptin participate in development of accustoming and dependence. Tests with participation of macaques Rhesus factors have shown that AT-121 had the anesthetizing effect like morphine at concentration a hundred times lower, than usually. Moreover, medicine was capable to reduce the level of dependence of animals on oxycodone — semi-synthetic opioid. High doses of AT-121 didn't cause oppression of breath and violation in activity of cardiovascular system. Scientists hope that results will be confirmed in further tests which will be carried out already with participation of people. It is more than important news in Film of Day Telegram-channel.
