New chronic pain medicine

Maeve -

Is any one familiar with Prialt? This is a new drug manufactured from the venom of a sea snail called Conus magus. In tests it is 1,000 times more potent than morphine at pain management and does not have the addictive, mind altering qualities of morphine.

It is being tested on chronic pain patients at the Research Medical Center in Kansas City. The drug is being produced by an Irish pharmaceutical firm named Elan.

Anyone with any information on this please let me know all you know!!!!
