Christmas BPS

  1. A paper entitled “PN6047, a G protein-biased delta opioid receptor agonist with an improved therapeutic profile for use in chronic pain” was delivered at the Christmas meeting of the British Pharmacological Society at London’s QE2 Centre (17-20th Dec). The communication was given by Dr Alex Conibear who is working in Prof Eamonn Kelly’s research group at the University of Bristol funded by a Medical Research Council project grant to PharmNovo and Prof Kelly for the study of biased signalling via delta opioid receptors. The potential clinical use of PN6047 for the treatment of chronic pain and, in particular, mechanical allodynia, was explained and a detailed account of its biased signalling profile was given.
