Researchers from Addex Therapeutics Ltd. have published preclinical data for the novel positive allosteric modulator of the metabotropic glutamate mGlu2 receptor, ADX-106772, being developed for the treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD).
Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corp.’s wholly owned subsidiary DMK Pharmaceuticals Corp. has been awarded a grant from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to support the development of a novel bifunctional small molecule for the treatment of alcohol use disorder.
At the recent ASPET meeting, University of Minnesota and University of Montana researchers presented data from studies to determine the ability of the Toll-like receptor 7 (TLR7) and TLR8 agonist INI-4001 to enhance the efficacy of the heroin vaccine M-sKLH for the treatment of opioid use disorder.
Researchers from High Point University recently reported the discovery and preclinical evaluation of a novel class of highly selective dopamine D4 receptor-selective ligands as potential therapeutic candidates for substance use disorders.
Researchers at Indiana University Bloomington have developed allosteric modulators of the opioid receptor that were superior to the opioid antidote naloxone at blocking the effects of fentanyl in vitro. They presented their work in a session on “Progress towards more efficacious medicine: Antibiotics and antidotes” at the 2023 spring meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
Researchers from the National Institutes of Health recently presented preclinical data for the dopamine D3 receptor antagonist VK-4-116, which has potential for the treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD).
Acetaminophen (APAP) is a very common nonprescription analgesic, harmless at low doses, that can cause acute liver injury and even death from acute liver failure when overdosed. The temporal course of acetaminophen overdose-induced liver injury (AILI) can be depicted in two stages – injury and recovery.
