Like mice, humans also have GRPR genes, so it may be possible to treat chronic itching in humans using a similar approach.

"Our findings could have important therapeutic implications. More research needs to be done, but it may be possible to relieve itching in patients by blocking GRPR function without affecting the pain pathway," Chen said.

The study was presented Monday at the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting, in Washington, D.C.
