Pfizer Inc. is collaborating on a new jet-lag drug

Pfizer Inc. is collaborating on a new jet-lag drug currently in only the early development stage.

The drug, based on research done at the University of Manchester in England, helps reset the body's circadian clock, according to an article in the Daily Mail newspaper.

Researchers have discovered how to manipulate an enzyme that controls the body's perception of time, making mice more adaptable to time changes.

A pill to control jet lag, currently in pre-clinical studies, could be only five to 10 years away, researchers suggested.

Dr. David Bechtold is heading up research efforts in England, according to the Daily Mail.
