Alpha-thujone (the active component of absinthe): gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor modulation and metabolic detoxification. (1/2)

Alpha-thujone is the toxic agent in absinthe, a liqueur popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries that has adverse health effects. It is also the active ingredient of wormwood oil and some other herbal medicines and is reported to have antinociceptive, insecticidal, and anthelmintic activity. This study elucidates the mechanism of alpha-thujone neurotoxicity and identifies its major metabolites and their role in the poisoning process. Four observations establish that alpha-thujone is a modulator of the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) type A receptor. First, the poisoning signs (and their alleviation by diazepam and phenobarbital) in mice are similar to those of the classical antagonist picrotoxinin. Second, a strain of Drosophila specifically resistant to chloride channel blockers is also tolerant to alpha-thujone. Third, alpha-thujone is a competitive inhibitor of [(3)H]ethynylbicycloorthobenzoate binding to mouse brain membranes. Most definitively, GABA-induced peak currents in rat dorsal root ganglion neurons are suppressed by alpha-thujone with complete reversal after washout. alpha-Thujone is quickly metabolized in vitro by mouse liver microsomes with NADPH (cytochrome P450) forming 7-hydroxy-alpha-thujone as the major product plus five minor ones (4-hydroxy-alpha-thujone, 4-hydroxy-beta-thujone, two other hydroxythujones, and 7,8-dehydro-alpha-thujone), several of which also are detected in the brain of mice treated i.p. with alpha-thujone. The major 7-hydroxy metabolite attains much higher brain levels than alpha-thujone but is less toxic to mice and Drosophila and less potent in the binding assay. The other metabolites assayed are also detoxification products. Thus, alpha-thujone in absinthe and herbal medicines is a rapid-acting and readily detoxified modulator of the GABA-gated chloride channel.  (+info)

Absinthe--is its history relevant for current public health? (2/2)

This paper briefly addresses the history of the social experience with absinthe in France during the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th. We draw on some important parallels of this history with that of smoking to demonstrate that public health threats in the form of (ill-)health related behaviour recur in different disguises, while the social causes if these threats are left to endure. Probably the most important of the parallels between absinthe and smoking is their association with social disadvantage. Nevertheless, it appears that it is not yet fully realized that tackling these threats requires an equity approach.  (+info)

Absinthe is defined in medical terms as a highly alcoholic (45-74% alcohol by volume) distilled beverage which has historically been produced using wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), anise, and florence fennel. It was traditionally bottled at a high proof and then diluted with water prior to consumption.

Absinthe has a distinctive green color, although some varieties are colorless. It is known for its strong, unique licorice flavor due to the presence of anise, as well as its potentially psychoactive effects. The active chemical in wormwood, thujone, was believed to cause hallucinations and other mental disturbances, giving absinthe a reputation as a dangerous and addictive substance.

However, modern research has shown that the levels of thujone in historical absinthes were not high enough to produce such effects, and the bans on absinthe in many countries during the early 20th century were largely based on misinformation and moral panic. Today, absinthe is once again legal in many parts of the world, although it is subject to stricter regulations than other alcoholic beverages.

An encyclopedia is a comprehensive reference work containing articles on various topics, usually arranged in alphabetical order. In the context of medicine, a medical encyclopedia is a collection of articles that provide information about a wide range of medical topics, including diseases and conditions, treatments, tests, procedures, and anatomy and physiology. Medical encyclopedias may be published in print or electronic formats and are often used as a starting point for researching medical topics. They can provide reliable and accurate information on medical subjects, making them useful resources for healthcare professionals, students, and patients alike. Some well-known examples of medical encyclopedias include the Merck Manual and the Stedman's Medical Dictionary.

Artemisia absinthium, also known as wormwood, is a species of plant in the daisy family (Asteraceae). It is native to temperate regions of Europe, Asia, and northern Africa. The plant has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries, including as a treatment for intestinal worms, fevers, and various other ailments.

Wormwood contains a number of active compounds, including thujone, which is believed to be responsible for its bitter taste and some of its medicinal properties. However, thujone can also be toxic in large amounts, and wormwood has been associated with a number of adverse health effects, particularly when it is used as an ingredient in alcoholic beverages, such as absinthe.

In addition to its use in medicine, wormwood has also been used as a flavoring agent in food and drink, as a source of natural pesticides, and as a component of traditional herbal remedies. It is important to note that the use of wormwood and other Artemisia species should be undertaken with caution, as they can have both therapeutic and toxic effects depending on the dose and the individual's health status.

Artemisia annua, also known as sweet wormwood or annual mugwort, is a plant species in the daisy family (Asteraceae). It is native to temperate Asia but has been naturalized in many parts of the world. The plant can grow up to 2 meters tall and has narrow, aromatic leaves with small yellow or white flowers.

Artemisia annua has been used in traditional medicine for centuries, particularly in China where it is known as Qing Hao. It contains a compound called artemisinin, which has been found to have antimalarial properties. Artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) are now widely used as first-line treatments for malaria caused by the Plasmodium falciparum parasite.

It is important to note that while artemisinin has been shown to be effective in treating malaria, it should only be taken under the supervision of a healthcare professional, as improper use can lead to drug resistance and other adverse effects. Additionally, Artemisia annua should not be used as a substitute for proven malarial treatments recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).
