Treatment-like steady-state methadone in rats interferes with incubation of cocaine sensitization and associated alterations in gene expression.


In a previous study, steady-state methadone treatment was found to prevent associative cocaine learning, as well as related decreases in mRNA expression of preprohypocretin/preproorexin (ppHcrt) in the lateral hypothalamus (LH) and dopamine D2 receptor (DR2) in the caudate-putamen (CP), and increases in mu-opioid receptor in the ventral striatum of rats.
