Doctors Prescribe Opioids at High Rates to Those at Increased Overdose Risk, but Trends Improving, Study Finds

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

The number of first-time prescriptions for opioid drugs has not risen since about 2010, according to UCLA researchers.

Researchers See Promise for Safer Opioid Pain Reliever

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB)

Researchers at the University of Michigan have engineered a new compound that animal tests suggest could offer the pain-relieving properties of opioids such as morphine and oxycodone without the risk of addiction. With more than 100 Americans dying from opioid overdoses every day, there is an urgent need for drugs that offer strong pain-relieving properties without leading to addiction.

Scientists Identify Connection Between Dopamine And Behavior Related To Pain And Fear

University of Maryland School of Medicine

Scientists have for the first time found direct causal links between the neurotransmitter dopamine and avoidance – behavior related to pain and fear. Researchers have long known that dopamine plays a key role in driving behavior related to pleasurable goals, such as food, sex and social interaction. In general, increasing dopamine boosts the drive toward these stimuli. But dopamine’s role in allowing organisms to avoid negative events has remained mysterious.
