Default Acupuncture 100 times more effective...

Sigh.

(PAP in Danish means cardboard...)
That's exactly the stuff that this study is made of.
Pour water (/science) on it and it dissolves in a sticky mess.

Yeah, I saw this too. It doesn't say exactly what tissue type was injected. Just some Poke-u-puncture point behind the knee. [/doublesigh]

Besides the reference to acupuncture do you have a problem with the study or what is being proposed?

If it is just another way to deliver anasthetics and is more effective and less intrusive than other means is that a problem?

I meant the study showing anti-nociceptive properties of the chemical. The actual study seems to be this:

I think you are right Randy. It looks like guilt by association. There seems to be a plausible mechanism for pain modification by chemical effect. It is just wrapping it around the acupuncture aspect that makes it unpalatable to me too. I was curious as to how they would have found out that acupuncture normally gives mice 1-2 hours of pain relief.
Kind thoughts,
Steve

Increased cheese intake.

Fewer observed quantifiable pain behaviours, like paw licking and tail flicking, or whatever it is they count as correlating to mouse pain.
