Researchers from Scripps Research Institute recently revealed that a two-drug combination could possibly help those battling cocaine addiction.
Cocaine is presently the most abused major stimulant drug in America. It has also become the drug most frequently involved in emergency department visits.
Researchers from the University of Kentucky have designed and discovered a series of highly efficient enzymes that effectively metabolize cocaine.
Researchers at Yale School of Medicine have zeroed in on a set of neurons in the part of the brain that controls hunger, and found that these neurons are not only associated with overeating, but also linked to non-food associated behaviors, like novelty-seeking and drug addiction.
Addicts unable to kick a cocaine habit could one day be vaccinated against cocaine and see proof with a molecular imaging technique that shows how the vaccine prompts antibodies to whisk away the drug before it can reach the brain.
Chronic exposure to cocaine reduces the expression of a protein known to regulate brain plasticity, according to new, in vivo research on the molecular basis of cocaine addiction.
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime estimates that cocaine is used by up to 21 million individuals worldwide, with approximately 1 per cent of these individuals becoming dependent.
New research by scientists at the University of Cambridge suggests that chronic cocaine abuse accelerates the process of brain aging.
New research from Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York reveals that repeated exposure to cocaine decreases the activity of a protein necessary for normal functioning of the brain's reward system, thus enhancing the reward for cocaine use, which leads to addiction.
