Behav Pharmacol 23:162-70. 2012..However, prodepressive effects were also produced and these effects may limit the therapeutic potential...
- The 2-methoxy methyl analogue of salvinorin A attenuates cocaine-induced drug seeking and sucrose reinforcements in ratsAashish S Morani
School of Biological Science, Victoria University of Wellington, PO Box 600, Wellington, New Zealand
Eur J Pharmacol 720:69-76. 2013..Future studies with Sal A analogues having affinities at other opioid receptors are warranted as they have the potential to identify compounds having effective anti-addiction properties. ..
