In 2016, Zadina and his team published a report in Neuropharmacology showing that they had successfully treated pain in rats using a peptide-based drug that targets the same pain-relieving opioid receptor as morphine while avoiding common opioid side effects including motor impairment, respiratory depression, and rising tolerance--which can often lead patients to increasing their dosages, setting them on a path to addiction.

This publication deals with one of the most important animal models in neurotoxicologicy and neuropharmacology. It is based on the toxicant MPTP that is metabolized in vivo to [MPP.sup.+], which then causes Parkinsonean symptoms.

Just this past winter, he and his team published a study in Neuropharmacology reporting that they had treated pain in rats without causing the five most common side effects associated with opioids, including increased tolerance, motor impairment, and respiratory depression, which leads to most opioid-related deaths.
