BACKGROUND We previously showed that, by activating innate immune receptors Toll-like 4 (TLR4), adolescent intermittent ethanol (EtOH) exposure causes neuroinflammation, myelin damage, and behavioral dysfunctions. Recent findings reveal that clinically used opioid antagonists naltrexone (NT) and naloxone (NX) inhibit opioid-induced TLR4 signaling and that NT, NX, and nalmefene (NF), the 6-methylene derivative of NX, are able to reduce alcohol drinking escalation. METHODS NF (0.1 mg/kg… Expand
