We found that ligation of the rat L5 spinal nerve led to a dramatic downregulation in the mRNA...

These opioids often make their way to other family members, are kept for continued use by the surgical patient to maintain a feeling of euphoria, or even find their way out into the community. Limiting the number of pills and refills prescribed is...
