One of the reasons is stability. According to this paper from 1979, the half-life of β-endorphin in 3 patients was measured at 37 minutes. This is in contrast to morphine, which has an elimination half-life of 3-4 hours (source). This means that while β-endorphin may have some use in short-term situations like surgical recovery rooms, it wouldn't really be ...

The followings are English translations of quotations from one commentary, written by a Japanese brain expert. (Unfortunately, the commentary itself is written in Japanese) By closely examining brain tissue samples from patients who died after taking anticancer drugs, researchers found that even in adult brains, neurons were nascent, at least in the dentate ...
