How Blocking a Neural Receptor Responsible for Addiction Could Reduce Alcohol Use

A Scripps Research team found that a new therapeutic that targets the kappa opioid receptor in the brain may reduce alcohol dependence. DOI: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-024-56500-9

How Mifepristone Could Transform Treatments for Alcohol Addiction

How Mifepristone Could Transform Treatments for Alcohol Addiction

This study investigates whether mifepristone, a glucocorticoid receptor antagonist, can reduce innate anxiety-like behaviors in genetically-selected Marchigian Sardinian (msP) rats. DOI: https://doi.org/10.3390%2Fijms22063095

New Hope for Battling Alcoholism: Glucocorticoid Blockers Show Promise

New Hope for Battling Alcoholism: Glucocorticoid Blockers Show Promise

Researchers explore how blocking specific stress-related receptors can reduce alcohol consumption in both everyday and genetically predisposed rats, paving the way for potential new treatments for alcohol use disorder. DOI: https://doi.org/10.3390/ijms22084184

Early-Life Stress Linked to Faster Onset of Alcohol Dependence in Male

Early-Life Stress Linked to Faster Onset of Alcohol Dependence in Male

Researchers have developed a novel mouse model to investigate how early-life stress increases the risk of alcohol dependence. DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ynstr.2020.100269

New Insights Into GR Antagonism's Role In Alcoholism

New Insights Into GR Antagonism's Role In Alcoholism

Researchers have investigated how blocking the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) in the brain can influence alcohol consumption in rats predisposed to high intake, highlighting the role of stress and our body's stress response system in drinking behaviors. DOI: https://doi.org/10.3390/ijms22084184
