The article has undergone full independent peer review.
The Analgesic Program, which commenced in July 2018 to discover and develop peptide-based therapeutics for moderate to severe pain and inflammation, and was successfully completed in March 2021.
The BJP is the leading international general pharmacology journal published by the British Pharmacological Society. It publishes high-quality original research and authoritative reviews, addresses topical pharmacology issues, and is committed to transparency and scientific rigour.
The class of compounds, peripheral Kappa opioid receptor (KOPr) agonists, are considered potential analgesics without the dose-limiting central nervous system-mediated side effects.

We will continue to assess potential partnerships to develop safer analgesics with our patent-pending peptides. Therapies based on these potentially non-addictive peptides will be important in addressing the current opioid crisis.”
