Came across this story in my neck of the woods for those have or experiencing nerve damage issues, looks promising even if they are reinventing a compound that already exists as a topical cream, still in the "pipe", maybe 6 years before release if it gets past phase 3...

Nope, they won't say which compound is the lucky one! :)

It's promising that this topical cream compound is already FDA approved as "safe to use on humans with little to no side effects." Let's hope it's identified and approved without too much bureaucratic delay.

True! Knowing pharmacares... They'll probably remix the formula a smigget just to repatent it as something new and grand! Reinventing the wheel!

Either way, kinda of curious that something common is just as effective!
