Scientists at SUNY Buffalo have addressed addiction using nanotechnology and siRNA. Their approach used gold nanorod-siRNA silencing complexes that target the dopaminergic signaling pathway in the brain, and induced reduced expression of DARPP-32, ERK, and PP-1. These nanoplexes "appear to be suited for brain-specific delivery of appropriate siRNA for therapy of drug addiction and other brain diseases," they write.
