Furthermore, theur novel dual-channel blocker inhibited inflammation and pain-associated behavior in a model of acute pancreatitis – known to also rely on TRPV4 and TRPA1. Their results illustrate proof of a novel concept inherent in their prototype compounds of a drug that targets two functionally-related TRP channels, and thus can be us...
