According to a statement from the regional government, researchers have observed how the drug not only inhibits the hypersensitivity to pain in rodents, but also controls the level of anxiety produced, which, if confirmed in clinical trials, could provide a very important added value to its effect as an analgesic.

The pain expert from the Department of Pharmacology and Nutrition of the University Rey Juan Carlos, Carlos Goicoechea, explained that “this compound has shown significant analgesic effects in one of the most difficult pain to treat, neuropathic pain: it can reduce both hyperalgesia (hypersensitivity to painful stimuli) and allodynia, a situation of painful response to stimuli that doesn’t usually cause it, for example, the simple touch” researcher said.

Meanwhile, the expert in application of molecules in fatty acids of the Scottish University of Aberden, Wenlong Huang, said that “these results highlight the mechanism of action of the olive oil modified molecule on inflammation, particularly in microglia cells, which play an important role in the development and maintenance of neuropathic pain”.
