New research from the University of Iowa finds that blocking an enzyme that lowers localized acidity in the brain reduces cocaine withdrawal symptoms and drug-seeking behavior in mice. The research led by UI professor of psychiatry John Wemmie, MD, PhD, suggests that the enzyme, carbonic anhydrase 4 (CA4), might represent a new therapeutic target for addiction and relapse.
