Pain relief from sea snail venom
An Australian researcher is developing a new pain medication from the venom of Marine cone snails.
Australian scientists say they have edged closer to developing new pain relief medication from sea snails.
The news comes as countries search for alternatives to opioids, including codeine, amid concerns of widespread misuse and a lack of effective treatments for chronic pain.
