Scientists pinpoint molecule that triggers UV pain

WEST PALM BEACH, Fl. (WFLX) - -

Many of us, unfortunately, know the pain of a sunburn. Now that sting might be worth something.

Scientists say they've been able to pinpoint a molecule that triggers pain after too much UV exposure.

Further studies show antibodies targeting the molecule appear to reduce pain.

It's a finding that could lead to new treatments for inflammatory pain conditions such as arthritis.
