robot scary for seven that's the idea of what is the significance of trump choosing grand rapids michigan for this small campaigns to haul romney. well you know this is not a big town but it's a very significant place because until strong one in twenty sixty six consecutive presidential elections for six consecutive presidential elections michigan had gone democratic and trump won here by a very thin eleven thousand votes out of clearly six million votes cast so this was a big upset for rob and it is part of the. coalition of states that he needs to keep together behind him if he is going to reassemble is is winning slew of states for twenty twenty rope and. now scientists in the u.k. say they found a genetic mutation in
6:33 am
a seventy one year old woman who feels virtually no pain or stress to spice on a ray of injuries joe cameron has rarely needed pain relief i hope that discovery could help in the future treatment of people who suffer chronic pain charlie angela reports. imagine a life with no pain this is being joe cameron's existence here she's eating hot chili cheese with her husband and doctor not batting an eyelid. can see. that yes there's been broken limbs burns childbirth surgeries but no need for pain relief i put my arm on something and only realized it's burning when i can smell fresh burning so it's not comes in the no reaction issue you cut yourself or burn yourself once maybe twice then you avoid that because your brain says don't do that or my brain just trade. and that's not good that's not good at all is it i haven't i haven't got the normal the normal sort of safeguards in
6:34 am
a normal body specialized nerves respond to tissue damage and send signals to the brain it's important in terms of self-preservation but roughly seven percent of the population have ongoing chronic pain so finding mutations that lead to painlessness could help scientists develop new painkilling drugs for them when easy recovery from hip surgery puzzle doctors she was referred to a pain geneticist at university college london there they found she had two notable new taishan one in a previously unidentified gene as we understand it her body is awash with fatty acids through various receptors to her pain sense sensation so that's the difference and this is a consequence of losing the activity resumes out so she is unique the discovery has caused joe cameron to reflect it explains why cuts and bruises always healed quickly for her and why she's had memory lapses throughout her life and also why she's always been happy her mutation means she's never felt much stress or anxiety
6:35 am
scientists say the implications of these findings are immense child out of their london. we can speak now to abdullah mohammed had been who's the author of the research into the genetic mutation good to have you with us on the program. where it's all actually unheard of is it for some people to pretty much be impervious to pain but she has been described as unique why is her case so different. she is unique in that. cameron she. although she sounds touch special doesn't feel pain and what's most makes her unique is the other patients that we've found so far they have no problem in terms of the sense of fear john cameron is unique in that she doesn't even feel not only pain but she does have the sense of fear she will this is makes her rather unique compared to other patients
6:36 am
would be working so far how big a breakthrough could this be for people like. incredibly exciting because we were working on the aspect of fear and now we've found a gene that regulates not only pain but also. a sense of fear that it's not something very new we haven't have any person so far we worked with these two types of behavior given this is a relatively new discovery what are your hopes and thoughts about what this discovery could actually lead to in terms of medication for pain or medication in the frank stasio panic attacks is there a possibility that the discovery of what's happening in joe's body could lead to something new. yes that's our hope one of the first of all these type of individuals that are very rare to come across they give us
6:37 am
insight which we don't have previously and do that will give us much better knowledge to understand how the pain mechanism works and with that knowledge we'll be able to develop a better treatment for the millions but i'm assuming that is many years into the future. it's very hard to put numbers on this how how so it will come but we hoping that every new knowledge of such significance will bring us closer to be able to develop a new drug jo didn't appear until very late in life to realize that there was something different and special about her how likely is it that there are other people out there who have similar things happening in their body similar gene mutations that you could also be using for research.
6:38 am
the things i mean these individuals because they do not have pain they don't come across i mean they don't come to the hospitals as much as a normal people do but and these type of. information going out to the wider population will allow those individuals who do have this pain insensitivity to be able to come and contact researchers like us and around the world and to allow us with to further our research and knowledge so that we get closer to develop a new treatment it's absolutely fascinating abdullah mohammed had the joining us there from also years in doha thanks so much. coming up in a couple of minutes. from
