USF/VA researchers identify gene that increases risk for drug abuse

In a major finding in the search for genes of addiction, researchers at the University of South Florida and the James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital have identified a gene — muopioid — that increases the risk for drug abuse in general, including alcohol and nicotine. Their study appears in the March 2002 issue of the journal Molecular Psychiatry.
