A potential remedy for drug addiction using LPS

July 3, 2024 12:21 pm

A March 2023 study suggests that LPS can reduce methamphetamine cravings by modulating microglia, the brain’s primary immune cells, highlighting the gut-brain axis’s significance in addiction therapy.

These findings suggest we can develop novel, non-invasive treatments for substance abuse using LPS, opening new avenues for reducing relapse rates and improving long-term recovery outcomes.

At LPS-BioSciences we can extract and characterize LPS from any Gram-negative bacterium including Klebsiella oxytoca, which has been shown to potentially reduce METH cravings!
