    Kabirullah Lutfy
    Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, College of Pharmacy, Western University of Health Sciences, 309 East 2nd Street, Pomona, CA 91766, United States
    Neuropharmacology 55:198-203. 2008
    ..These findings suggest that endogenous OFQ/N may be involved in the actions of cocaine and possibly in cocaine-induced motor stimulation and locomotor sensitization...

    David Bebawy
    Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, College of Pharmacy, Western University of Health Sciences, Pomona, California, USA
    Biol Psychiatry 68:223-30. 2010
    ..We also examined whether OFQ/N, given to cocaine-sensitized mice, would reverse the sensitized response and whether it would prevent the amplified sensitized response induced by a second cocaine-sensitizing regimen in sensitized mice...

    Alexander T Nguyen
    Department of Pharm Sci, College of Pharmacy, Western University of Health Sciences, Pomona, CA 91766, USA
    Eur J Pharmacol 686:50-4. 2012
    ..These results illustrate that β-endorphin is essential for the rewarding action of acute cocaine, but the μ opioid receptor may not mediate the regulatory action of endogenous β-endorphin...

    Khanh Nguyen
    Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, College of Pharmacy, Western University of Health Sciences, Pomona, CA 91766, United States
    Behav Brain Res 227:58-63. 2012
    ..However, these mice compared to their respective controls exhibited a greater CPP response following an ethanol (1g/kg) challenge, suggesting that the endogenous DYN/KOP system may negatively regulate ethanol-induced state-dependent CPP...

    Paul Marquez
    Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, College of Pharmacy, Western University of Health Sciences, Pomona, CA 91766, USA
    Psychopharmacology (Berl) 197:443-8. 2008
