Promising Research for Chronic Pain Relief

Cloning unique white blood cells could be the secret to solving a significant public health problem, pain. Chronic pain impacts tens of millions of people in the U.S. Few options are available to treat it effectively, especially now with a crackdown on opioids due to abuse with an estimated 107, 622 overdose deaths associated with it in the U.S. in 2021, according to The Center for Disease Control’s National Center for Health Statistics.
