A Novel Analgesic Isolated from a Traditional Chinese Medicine

  • DHCB is isolated from C. yanhusuo, a plant used for centuries for pain relief
  • DHCB is antinociceptive against acute, inflammatory, and neuropathic pains
  • DHCB’s antinociception relies on its inhibitory activity at the dopamine D2 receptor
  • DHCB administration does not induce antinociceptive tolerance
