Scientists develop promising drug candidates for pain, addiction

Scientists from the Florida campus of the Scripps Research Institute have described a pair of drug candidates that advance the search for new treatments for pain, addiction and other disorders. The two new drug scaffolds offer researchers novel tools that act on a demonstrated therapeutic target, the kappa opioid receptor, which is located on nerve cells and plays a role in the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine.
