Signals transmitted from the periphery through synapses in the spinal cord to the brain lead to the sensation of pain. Severe chronic and neurogenic pain are poorly treated by existing drugs such as 39 Botulinum toxin: from menace to medicine morphine, for which tolerance can quickly develop; there is an urgent need for novel and effective pain therapies. While the native botulinum neurotoxins are potent inhibitors of neurotransmission from pain-conducting neurons52, they are not selective for these neurons and block transmission from motor neurons even more efficiently53.

Inactive botulinum neurotoxins have also been proposed as carriers for oral vaccines by virtue of their ability to cross gut and airway epithelial layers61,62. While the clostridial neurotoxins have significant potential for the delivery of therapeutics to the nervous system, a programme of work with a clear clinical target has yet to emerge. REFERENCES 1.
