Groundbreaking Research Shows Potential to Detect Opioid Exposure
By looking at biomarkers in blood, scientists may be able to diagnose low-level opioid exposure as long as two weeks after the event, according to groundbreaking research at the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (RDECOM ECBC).
These findings, presented in a paper by research biologist Trevor Glaros, Ph.D., and his team at RDECOM ECBC, forge new ground in the field, set an innovative example and provide novel insights to guide future research. Glaros noted that the research paper was recently accepted into Toxicological Sciences, considered the most influential research journal in the field of toxicology, following a vote by its editorial board.
