U.S. researchers are studying ways to use super-small nanoparticles to easily deliver painkillers to injured soldiers.
The team at the University of Michigan say they have received a $1.3 million grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to conduct the study.
The goal is to develop tiny painkiller-bearing particles that can be injected with a pen-like device that can be used by injured soldiers' comrades, or even injured soldiers themselves, on the battlefield. Ideally, the devices would provide safe and effective pain relief until a wounded soldier could receive more expert medical help.
