Abstract: Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is a serious cause of morbidity and mortality. However, due to the limited efficacy of existing pharmacotherapies, further investigations of potential neurochemical targets are required to define new pharmacological interventions. In recent years, a pivotal role of the appetite regulatory peptide glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in drug reinforcement and addiction processes has been identified. However, the ability of GLP-1 receptors (GLP-1R) to influence various alcoho... more
