Capsaicin, from Hot to Not; Can New Pain-Relieving Drugs Be Derived from This Substance Known To Cause Pain?  David B. Rusterholz
This article traces the development of modified capsaicin structures that offer improved analgesic effectiveness with minimal pungency and the discovery of compounds that act as antagonists at the TRPV1 receptor, which appear to hold promise as new drugs that will be useful for the treatment of some types of pain.

Immunoassay, DNA Analysis, and Other Ligand Binding Assay Techniques: From Electropherograms to Multiplexed, Ultrasensitive Microarrays on a Chip  Roger P. Ekins
"Ligand" or "binding" assays have made a major impact on biomedical research and clinical diagnosis since their development in the late 1950s. Immunoassay techniques (relying on specific antibodies to bind the target analyte) represent the best-known example, but analogous DNA and RNA analysis methods (using oligonucleotides to recognize defined polynucleotide sequences) are rapidly gaining in importance and are likely to exert profound effects on human society.
