Propofol discovery may help lead to development of new anaesthetics

New research on the most commonly used anaesthetic drug could help to unravel a long-standing mystery about how it induces a pain-free, sleep-like state. Following years of research, scientists have identified exactly how propofol acts at a molecular level. Having a more detailed picture of exactly how it works in the brain may help scientists to design new versions that reduce the risks involved in surgery. Propofol was linked to the death of Michael Jackson.
