Sea Snails May Aid Chronic Pain Treatments – Says Researcher

Researchers from University of Queensland believe that the conotoxins present in the deadly sea snail venom, could revolutionize treatment for sufferers from chronic pain//. This treatment could replace the conventional pain relief drugs such as morphine.

Researchers say that the toxin, snail uses to hunt its prey, can accurately target pain without the severe side effects usually caused by other pain treatments.

Dr. Ekberg said that the research is in its early stages, and the conotoxins is yet to be tested in humans. It could take a decade before the treatment gets produced in the marketable quantities. With one in five Australians suffering from chronic pain at some point in their lives, the potential benefits are enormous - she added.

However, the conotoxin is yet to be tested on humans and Dr Ekberg said it could be several years before the treatment was able to be produced in marketable quantities. If the research proves successful, the treatment will allow sufferers to live normal lives and continue working – she added.
