People who suffer from arthritis pain in their knees may get longer-lasting relief and require fewer shots at the doctor's office. Scientists announced Wednesday that tiny particles called nanoparticles that they have developed can deliver pain medicine to the inside of the knee and keep it there longer. The study led by Michael Morgan of Bend Research has not yet been peer-reviewed, but he believes his work showed progress in pre-clinical trials.
