PROJECT SUMMARY – ABSTRACT Drug addiction is an insidious mental health problem that has few effective therapies. This proposal is a collaborative effort between the PI (Dr. Hnasko) and the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP). SBP has recently identified ML314 and small molecule analogs that act at the Neurotensin receptor type 1 (NtsR1) as biased positive allosteric modulators (PAM). Neurotensin (NT) agonists have long been sought as potential treatments for drug addiction...
