Do alcohol and cocaine abuse alter the course of HIV-associated dementia complex? (1/893)

Although psychoactive drugs are commonly used by AIDS patients, it is unclear whether commonly abused drugs, such as cocaine and ethanol, affect the course of HIV-associated dementia (HADC). Epidemiological studies have resulted in conflicting conclusions as to what role, if any, abused drugs play in HADC. In this review we discuss the clinical and pathological evidence that cocaine and ethanol might exacerbate the detrimental effects of HIV infection on the brain. We also review studies of cocaine and ethanol effects on various components of the immune system both in the presence and absence of retroviral infection. Data from these studies indicate that cocaine and ethanol have profound effects on the immune system that, in many respects, are enhanced by retroviral infection. We conclude that abused drugs likely affect the course of HADC but that proof awaits an examination of their interactive effects in an appropriate in vivo system of retroviral encephalitis.  (+info)

Regional cerebral glucose metabolism and blood flow in a patient with Marchiafava-Bignami disease. (2/893)

We report functional neuroimaging studies of a 54-year-old man with Marchiafava-Bignami disease (MBD). Glucose metabolic images obtained by [18F]-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography showed diffusely reduced whole brain metabolism and strongly decreased metabolism in the frontal and parietal lobes, orbital gyrus, and thalamus. Cerebral perfusion images showed a similarly decreased radioactivity pattern as the metabolic images. Functional neuroimages would be useful for understanding the pathophysiologic processes of MBD.  (+info)

Identifying alcohol-related harm in young drinkers: the role of accident and emergency departments. (3/893)

Data are presented from a screening study of ambulant attendees at two London Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments. Among young people (aged 16-24 years), 37.2% were drinking harmfully [an Alcohol-Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) score of 8 or more]; 17.3% admitted to drinking alcohol in the 6 h prior to attendance; and 14.6% considered that their attendance was alcohol related. Young women were as likely as men to score 8 or over. This age group had nearly twice the odds of scoring highly on the AUDIT, compared to those over 25 years old, and were more likely to report that their attendance was alcohol related. Screening in A&E departments would identify considerable numbers of young people who might benefit from brief intervention, but the problems of doing so are acknowledged.  (+info)

Alcoholism in the elderly. (4/893)

Alcohol abuse and alcoholism are common but underrecognized problems among older adults. One third of older alcoholic persons develop a problem with alcohol in later life, while the other two thirds grow older with the medical and psychosocial sequelae of early-onset alcoholism. The common definitions of alcohol abuse and dependence may not apply as readily to older persons who have retired or have few social contacts. Screening instruments can be used by family physicians to identify older patients who have problems related to alcohol. The effects of alcohol may be increased in elderly patients because of pharmacologic changes associated with aging. Interactions between alcohol and drugs, prescription and over-the-counter, may also be more serious in elderly persons. Physiologic changes related to aging can alter the presentation of medical complications of alcoholism. Management of alcohol withdrawal in elderly persons should be closely supervised by a health care professional. Alcohol treatment programs with an elder-specific focus may improve outcomes in some patients.  (+info)

Substance abuse and the kidney. (5/893)

Substance abuse has been increasing steadily in the UK and some other countries. Recent evidence suggests more than 40% of young people have tried illicit drugs at some time. There are numerous medical consequences to recreational drug use, and a physician should always consider substance abuse in any unexplained illness. The renal complications of drug abuse are also becoming more frequent, and may encompass a spectrum of glomerular, interstitial and vascular diseases. Although some substances are directly nephrotoxic, a number of other mechanisms are also involved. These effects are often chronic and irreversible, but occasionally acute with possible recovery. The rapid growth of illicit drug use is clearly a major public health problem. We review the commonly used substances of abuse and their associations with renal disease.  (+info)

Early changes in left ventricular function in chronic asymptomatic alcoholics: relation to the duration of heavy drinking. (6/893)

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to assess preclinical cardiac abnormalities in chronic alcoholic patients and possible differences among alcoholics related to the duration of heavy drinking. BACKGROUND: Chronic excessive alcohol intake has been reported as a possible cause of dilated cardiomyopathy. However, before the appearance of severe cardiac dysfunction, subtle signs of cardiac abnormalities may be identified. METHODS: We studied 30 healthy subjects (age 44 +/- 8 years) and 89 asymptomatic alcoholics (age 45 +/- 8 years, p = NS) divided into three groups, with short (S, 5-9 years, n = 31), intermediate (I, 10-15 years, n = 31) and long (L, 16-28 years, n = 27) duration of alcoholism. Transmitral early (E) and late (A) Doppler flow velocities, E/A ratio, deceleration time of E (DT) and isovolumic relaxation time (IVRT) were obtained. Left ventricular (LV) wall thickness and volumes were also determined by echocardiography, and LV mass and ejection fraction (EF) were calculated. RESULTS: The alcoholics had prolonged IVRT (92 +/- 11 vs. 83 +/- 7 ms, p < 0.001), longer DT (180 +/- 20 vs. 170 +/- 10 ms, p < 0.01), smaller E/A (1.25 +/- 0.34 vs. 1.40 +/- 0.32, p < 0.05), larger LV volumes (73 +/- 8 vs. 65 +/- 7 ml/m2, p < 0.001 for end-diastolic volume index; 25 +/- 4 vs. 21 +/- 2 ml/m2, p < 0.001 for end-systolic volume index), higher LV mass index (92 +/- 14 vs. 78 +/- 8 g/m2, p < 0.001) and thicker posterior wall (9 +/- 1 vs. 8 +/- 1 mm, p < 0.001). Ejection fraction did not differ between the two groups (66 +/- 4 vs. 67 +/- 2%). Deceleration time of the early transmitral flow velocity was longer in groups L (187 +/- 18 ms) and I (185 +/- 16 ms) compared with group S (168 +/- 17 ms, p < 0.001 for L and I vs. S), whereas A was higher in group L compared with S (43 +/- 10 vs. 51 +/- 10 cm/s, p < 0.005). Multiple regression analysis identified duration of heavy drinking as the most important variable affecting DT and A. CONCLUSIONS: Left ventricular dilation with preserved EF and impaired LV relaxation characterized LV function in chronic asymptomatic alcoholic patients. It appeared that the progression of abnormalities in LV diastolic filling related to the duration of alcoholism.  (+info)

The burden of alcohol misuse on an inner-city general hospital. (7/893)

Alcohol consumption in the UK has been increasing steadily. We prospectively studied the burden on hospital services caused by overt alcohol misuse, in an inner-city hospital in north-west England. All Accident & Emergency (A&E) patients were assessed to determine whether their hospital attendance was alcohol-related, and whether this resulted in admission and/or generated new out-patient appointments. Over 2 months, 1915 patients attended A&E with alcohol-related problems, accounting for 12% of attendances; 50% were aged 18-39 years, and acute alcohol intoxication was the commonest presenting complaint. Overall, 6.2% of all hospital admissions were due to alcohol-related problems. Over 2800 new out-patient visits were likely to have been generated over an 18-month period from initial attendance with an alcohol-related problem, mostly for orthopaedic clinics. The burden placed by overt alcohol-related problems on hospitals is enormous, both in terms of the emergency and out-patient services. The implementation of education, screening and intervention strategies in A&E departments, and employment of key trained personnel, should be considered, to optimize the clinical management of these patients.  (+info)

Do drinking surveys predict changes in population-based alcohol problem indicators? (8/893)

We examined per capita alcohol consumption and survey-based measures of alcohol use in Ontario in relation to indicators of alcohol problems for the period 1977-1997. Per capita consumption and percentage of daily drinkers were significantly related to problem indicators, but percentage of drinkers and percentage of heavy drinkers were not. Of the measures we examined, per capita consumption was the strongest indicator of alcohol problems.  (+info)

Alcohol dependence and alcohol abuse or harmful use cause substantial morbidity and mortality. Alcohol-use disorders are associated with depressive episodes, severe anxiety, insomnia, suicide, and abuse of other drugs. Continued heavy alcohol use also shortens the onset of heart disease, stroke, cancers, and liver cirrhosis, by affecting the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and immune systems. Heavy drinking can also cause mild anterograde amnesias, temporary cognitive deficits, sleep problems, and peripheral neuropathy; cause gastrointestinal problems; decrease bone density and production of blood cells; and cause fetal alcohol syndrome. Alcohol-use disorders complicate assessment and treatment of other medical and psychiatric problems. Standard criteria for alcohol dependence-the more severe disorder-can be used to reliably identify people for whom drinking causes major physiological consequences and persistent impairment of quality of life and ability to function. Clinicians should routinely ...
According to the Department of Health, majority of people in Hong Kong started to develop drinking habit at 18-21 years of age in 2014/2015. Amongst them, 16.8% had scored higher than 3 in the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test for Consumption (AUDIT-C) (an abbreviated version of the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test, or AUDIT, designed by the World Health Organization(WHO)), while 3.5% had even scored 8 or above in the test. With higher prevalence to begin drinking within 18 and 23 years old, university students could have established higher tendency of harmful drinking and alcohol dependence as compared with other age groups. Therefore, early interventions such as the evidence-based Alcohol Brief Intervention (ABI) suggested by the WHO are particularly needed to target university drinkers who are 5% more likely to develop higher frequency of drinking in later of their lives compared with other age groups ...
A recently published Yale-affiliated study may change the way doctors treat alcohol-use disorders in patients who smoke cigarettes.. Smokers recovering from alcohol dependence often continue smoking in an effort to alleviate the discomfort of withdrawal, according to the study. But the researchers determined that this cigarette use has an adverse impact on patients likelihood of staying sober in the long-run. Patients in treatment for alcohol-use disorders who smoke cigarettes are far less likely to relapse if they are concurrently treated for cigarette smoking habits, the study indicated.. What we found is that adults with a past alcohol-use disorder who were smokers were more likely to meet criteria for alcohol-use disorders three years later, compared to adults with a past alcohol-use disorder who were not smoking, first author and Yale School of. Medicine psychiatry professor Andrea Weinberger said.. Past research on the subject has generally focused on how alcohol use affects patients ...
Aims: To report on alcohol use disorders and hazardous drinking from a survey of university students in England in 2008-2009.. Methods: A cross-sectional survey using the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) was carried out in a purposive sample of 770 undergraduates from seven universities across England. Results: Sixty-one per cent of the sample (65% men; 58% women) scored positive (8+) on the AUDIT, comprising 40% hazardous drinkers, 11% harmful drinkers and 10% with probable dependence. There were large and significant differences in mean AUDIT scores between the universities taking part in the survey. Two universities in the North of England showed a significantly higher combined mean AUDIT score than two universities in the Midlands which in turn showed a significantly higher mean AUDIT score than three universities in the South. When the effects of university attended were extracted in a binary logistic regression analysis, independent significant predictors of AUDIT positive ...
BACKGROUND Alcohol Use Disorders (AUDs) among tuberculosis (TB) patients are associated with nonadherence and poor treatment outcomes. Studies from Tuberculosis Research Centre (TRC), Chennai have reported that alcoholism has been one of the major reasons for default and mortality in under the DOTS programme in South India. Hence, it is planned to conduct a study to estimate prevalence of alcohol use and AUDs among TB patients attending the corporation health centres in Chennai, India. METHODOLOGY This is a cross-sectional cohort study covering 10 corporation zones at Chennai and it included situational assessment followed by screening of TB patients by a WHO developed Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test AUDIT scale. Four zones were randomly selected and all TB patients treated during July to September 2009 were screened with AUDIT scale for alcohol consumption. RESULTS Out of 490 patients, 66% were males, 66% were 35 years and above, 57% were married, 58% were from the low monthly income
Alcohol abuse is an important public health problem, frequently unrecognized among people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), and requires investigation and intervention. It is usually associated with lower adherence to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). It can also produce adverse clinical outcomes, such as changes in certain HIV markers, particularly CD4 cell counts and HIV viral loads (VLs). Thus, this study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of alcohol abuse among PLWHA, its associated risk factors and effects on CD4 cell counts and HIV VLs in southern Brazil. Between December 2012 and July 2013, 343 patients were interviewed at a reference hospital in southern Brazil. The instrument used was the Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test (AUDIT), and a cutoff of eight points or more was applied. Socioeconomic, demographic, clinical and laboratory data were also collected. The statistical analysis included a Poisson regression to evaluate the factors associated with alcohol use disorder, and a
This study was conducted to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy and determine the optimum cut-off scores for clinical use of the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression scale (CES-D) and Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) against a reference psychiatric diagnostic interview, in TB and anti-retroviral therapy (ART) patients in primary care in Zambia. Methods. This was a cross-sectional study in 16 primary level care clinics. Consecutive sampling was used to select 649 participants who started TB treatment or ART in the preceding month. Participants were first interviewed using the CES-D and AUDIT, and subsequently with a psychiatric diagnostic interview for current major depressive disorder (MDD) and alcohol use disorders (AUDs) using the Mini-International Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI). The diagnostic accuracy was calculated using the Area Under the Receiver Operating Characteristic curve (AUROC). The optimum cut-off scores for clinical use were calculated using sensitivity ...

OBJECTIVES: Most individuals with alcohol use disorders receive no treatment for their disorder. Past research suggests that a major reason for this is that individuals with alcohol use disorders do not perceive a need for treatment. The research presented here had two objectives. First, to provide updated estimates of the percentage of individuals with alcohol use disorders who perceive a need for treatment, and among those, the percentage who receive any treatment for alcohol use disorders.
The university environment reinforces positive alcohol-related expectations and motivations for drinking among undergraduate students. High levels of hazardous consumption in this population lead to significant negative alcohol-related consequences, for individuals and those around them. This study sought to explore the contexts in which those who engage in hazardous drinking consume alcohol, their perceptions of safety and harm, and receptivity to health messages. Undergraduate university students (n = 69; aged 17 - 24 of both genders [57% female]) were purposively recruited into one of seven focus groups after screening with the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) to select for hazardous drinking (score, >8) or moderate drinking. A focus group interview schedule was developed, which was informed by theory and tested for validity by a panel of experts. Qualitative analysis of the data revealed four thematic clusters: positive expectations; inescapable culture; defining
Some sources confirm that 25-30% patients visiting the ER meet the criteria for at risk drinking. The CAGE questionnaire is designed to assess for LIFETIME ETOH dependence and is no longer recommended as a screening tool because it is geared towards the DSM-IV diagnoses of substance abuse and dependence; plus it is not as sensitive for detecting the full spectrum of unhealthy use. However, the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT)-C is best used for primary care settings.. AUD consist of alcohol dependence, alcohol abuse, or harmful use. These disorders are common in all developed countries and are more prevalent in men than in women, with lower but still substantial rates in developing countries.. However, most people with AUD are difficult to identify because they are likely to have jobs and families and to present with general complaints, such as malaise, insomnia, anxiety, sadness, or a range of medical problems.. In response to the high prevalence of this disease, the American ...
An accurate alcohol history cannot be obtained by merely asking how many units an individual drinks, but should be systematically approached. This may be particularly pertinent within primary care, given that patients and staff often develop close and trusting relationships with whole families. Failure to adopt a systematic screening approach is unfortunate, as specific alcohol screening tools are available. In particular, the questionnaire, Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT), can reliably detect hazardous drinking in the primary care setting.(2) Perhaps more importantly, AUDIT has been shown to be patient-friendly and inoffensive when used to obtain a patients medical history (see Figure 1).(3).

BACKGROUND: For alcohol, the association with socioeconomic status (SES) is different than for other public health challenges - the associations are complex, and heterogeneous between socioeconomic groups. Specifically, the relationship between alcohol consumption per se and adverse health consequences seems to vary across SES. This observation is called the alcohol harm paradox. This study aims to describe different patterns of alcohol use and potential problems. Next, the associations between sub-groups characterized by different patterns of alcohol use and potential problems, and age, gender, educational level, full-time employment, occupational level and income is analysed. METHODS: Employing data from the ongoing cross-sectional WIRUS-study, N = 4311 participants were included in the present study. Individual response patterns of the ten-item Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) were analysed and latent class analysis (LCA) was used to identify latent groups. Next, the ...

Description: Background: Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are responsible for 38 million deaths annually, which translates to 68% of global deaths every year. Incidence and prevalence of NCDs are increasing rapidly and the poor bear a disproportionate burden. The increase in NCDs has been primarily due to a proliferation of modifiable risk factors, such as unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, tobacco use, and excessive alcohol consumption. Substance abuse, mainly of alcohol, is a common cause of health problems in almost all countries across the globe. Alcohol abuse is a major contributor to the global burden of diseases and accounts for 3.3 million deaths, approximately 5.9% of all global deaths, annually. Alcohol misuse is the fifth leading risk factor for premature death and disability and is the top risk factor among people between 15 and 49 years of age. The rise of harmful use of alcohol in South Africa contributes to the disease burden faced by the country, with alcohol-related disorders ...

This is a carefully designed animal study, which looked in detail at the effects of alcohol on the brains of adolescent rhesus monkeys. The fact that it used adolescent primates rather than adult rats or mice makes the results more relevant to humans. It also used a control group for comparison of brain changes. The results suggest that chronic alcohol consumption may alter the process of brain development in adolescents.. The researchers suggest that this early damage may be permanent, and could increase an individuals vulnerability to alcohol-related disorders. Such early damage may also underlie deficits in spatial learning, short-term memory and higher-level cognitive function (executive function) seen in adult alcoholics.. However, only limited conclusions can be drawn from a study in just seven monkeys. Also, the monkeys drank a substantial amount of alcohol every day for 11 months, and the teenage human equivalent would presumably be heavy, chronic alcohol misuse, rather than episodic ...

Objective: The relationship between tuberculosis (TB) treatment and alcohol use disorders over time is under-researched. The aim of this investigation was to study alcohol use and TB medication adherence and its predictors among TB patients over a period of 6 months.. Methods: A longitudinal investigation was carried out with new TB and TB retreatment patients systematically selected from two hospitals and had screened positive for hazardous or harmful alcohol use in Sisaket Province in Thailand. Alcohol use disorders were measured with Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test (AUDIT)-C at baseline, 3 months and 6 months.. Results: Of the 295 TB patients who were screened with AUDIT-C, 72 (24.4%) tested positive for hazardous or harmful alcohol use. At 6 months, 72 TB patients had completed the followup. At the 6-month follow-up, hazardous or harmful drinking was reduced by 84.7%. Multivariate logistic regression analysis using generalised estimation equation modelling found that alcohol use ...
Kaner E, et al. [15], DOnofrio G, et al. [22] Kaner and colleagues [15] undertook a pragmatic trial of three brief intervention strategies in primary care settings as part of the large multi-center Screening and Intervention Programme for Sensible drinking (SIPS) trial conducted in the UK. Over 3500 patients across 29 primary care practices participated in this cluster randomized trial. Practices were assigned to one of three interventions of increasing levels of intensity: simple feedback plus a patient information leaflet (provided for all interventions); a five-minute structured brief intervention delivered by practice staff; or a brief intervention followed by a 20-minute motivational interviewing session delivered at a follow-up visit by an alcohol counselor. The primary outcome was drinking status as measured by the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT).. Hazardous and harmful drinking decreased in all treatment conditions at six and 12 months, but the odds of having a ...
Background: Topiramate (Topamax) decreases cravings for alcohol by reducing corticomesolimbic dopamine release. A preliminary trial showed that topiramate improved drinking patterns in patients with alcohol dependence. Johnson and colleagues conducted a more definitive randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study designed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of topiramate in the treatment of alcoholism.. The Study: The study included patients 18 to 65 years of age with alcohol dependence. Male participants drank at least 35 drinks per week, and female participants drank more than 28 drinks per week. Participants also had negative urine toxicology findings, with limited exceptions, and a score of 8 or more on the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test. Exclusion criteria were extensive and mostly related to severe alcoholism, other psychiatric or health conditions (e.g., Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th ed., axis I disorders), substance abuse over the ...

A new study conducted in France analyzed the nationwide data for admitted patients in hospitals between 2008 and 2013 found that alcohol use disorders were significantly associated with dementia.. The study supports that alcohol use disorder be recognized as a major risk factor for all types of dementia, especially for early-onset dementia. The analysis also showed that the risks are remain unchanged even after abstinence from drinking, citing that lifelong damage had already been inflicted on the brain.. In their closing, the researchers recommended that the risk of alcohol use disorder should be recognized, and that appropriate action such as early detection and intervention should be taken to reduce heavy drinking, and delay or prevent the onset of dementia..

TY - JOUR. T1 - Alcohol use disorders. T2 - Screening and diagnosis. AU - Maisto, Stephen A.. AU - Saitz, Richard. PY - 2003/1/1. Y1 - 2003/1/1. N2 - The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of empirically supported, primarily self-report methods of screening and diagnosis related to alcohol use disorders (AUDs). The discussion of screening instruments focuses on the primary care setting, and the diagnosis instruments discussion centers on the alcohol (and other drug) treatment setting. The literature shows that the AUDIT and the CAGE are the most widely validated methods of screening for AUDs in primary care and may be applied readily in that context. Similarly, a number of instruments designed to derive DSM-IV (and ICD-10) AUD diagnoses, as well as constructs related to how AUDs are defined, are available and can meet a variety of clinical needs. Future research priorities include further development of brief methods to identify hazardous drinkers or individuals who have an AUD, ...
Alcohol use disorders, defined as clinically significant impairment or distress from the use of alcohol, are common in Canadian society.1 In addition, 15% to 20% of Canadians who do not meet the criteria for an alcohol use disorder drink more than what is recommended by the low-risk guidelines.2 Alcohol-related harms attributable to both at-risk drinking and alcohol use disorders are responsible for 9.3% of disability-adjusted life-years lost and 7.1% of all premature deaths in Canada.3 The costs to the health care system are high.. As Moyer and Finney4 outline in their clinical review, patients with at-risk drinking and alcohol use disorders can be easily identified with validated screening procedures. Conversely, when physicians rely on case identification alone, patients with at-risk drinking and milder alcohol use disorders (who typically have stable lives and few consequences from drinking) are often missed. These patients, however, are at high risk of harm and of progression to more severe ...

The proportion of Aboriginal mothers in Western Australia with an alcohol diagnosis (23.1%) is ten times greater than for non-Aboriginal mothers (2.3%). There has been a six-fold increase in the percentage of non-Aboriginal births with a maternal alcohol diagnosis recorded during pregnancy and a 100-fold increase for Aboriginal births. Around 70% of the mothers of children diagnosed with FAS did not have an alcohol diagnosis recorded during pregnancy and 18% of the mothers had no record of an alcohol diagnosis. ...
The co-occurrence of schizophrenia and alcohol use disorders often leads to poor treatment retention and adherence. Both empirical research and statements of best practices suggest that interventions including motivational interviewing principles can enhance treatment engagement and improve outcomes. This article describes a set of exercises used within a motivational enhancement protocol for outpatients with schizophrenia-spectrum and alcohol use disorders. We describe how each exercise was tailored to the target population, and how it is designed to enhance motivation to change and treatment engagement. Examples from clinical transcripts are used to demonstrate how motivational interviewing is adapted to the cognitive, social, and environmental circumstances associated with schizophrenia.

Results Four trials (n=618) were included, comparing a brief motivational interview with usual care (2 trials), personalised feedback or an educational brochure. In two studies, motivational interview was significantly associated with a reduction in alcohol-use while two studies showed no effect attributable to the intervention. Successful interventions were either delivered at a distance from the event or included booster sessions. Motivational interview favoured a reduction in alcohol-related problems in all but one study. Benefits were sustained over 12 months.. ...
The individual and societal cost of alcohol use disorders (TUAL), present in 10% of the population in France, is considerable. Despite psychotherapeutic and drug addiction treatment, the relapse rate remains very high, partly because of their very frequent cognitive disorders. In fact, more than 75% of TUAL patients present to varying degrees neuropsychological alterations that are only rarely detected and never treated. However, these cognitive disorders limit the benefit of psychotherapeutic care, reduce compliance with pharmacological treatments and hinder the patients ability to change his behavior with respect to alcohol. An innovative way to promote the maintenance of the therapeutic contract, and therefore to reduce alcohol consumption in these patients, would be to improve their cognitive functioning. The objective of this study is to measure the efficacy of a non-drug treatment, based on a specific and personalized cognitive remediation program, compared to a standard treatment in Day ...
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Too often todays headlines bring news of yet another alcohol-related tragedy involving a young person-a case of fatal alcohol poisoning on a college campus or a late-night drinking-driving crash. People ages 18 to 25 often are in the news, but are they really at higher risk than anyone else for problems involving alcohol? Some of the most important new data to emerge on young adult drinking were collected through a recent nationwide survey, the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC). According to these data, in 2001-2002 about 70 percent of young adults in the United States, or about 19 million people, consumed alcohol in the year preceding the survey. Its not only that young people are drinking but the way they drink that puts them at such high risk for alcohol-related problems. Research consistently shows that people tend to drink the heaviest in their late teens and early to mid-twenties (1,2). Young adults are ...
Adolescence is considered to be the most important period for the prevention of substance use and misuse (SUM). The aim of this study was to investigate the problem of SUM and to establish potentially important factors associated with SUM in Kosovar adolescents. Multi-stage simple random sampling was used to select participants. At the end of their high school education, 980 adolescents (623 females) ages 17 to 19 years old were enrolled in the study. The prevalence of smoking, alcohol consumption (measured by Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test-AUDIT), and illegal drug use (dependent variables), as well as socio-demographic, scholastic, familial, and sports-related factors (independent variables), were assessed. Boys smoke cigarettes more often than girls with daily-smoking prevalence of 16% among boys and 9% among girls (OR = 1.85, 95% = CI 1.25-2.75). The prevalence of harmful drinking (i.e., AUDIT scores of >10) is found to be alarming (41% and 37% for boys and girls, respectively; OR = 1.13

RNA in cells is always associated with RNA-binding proteins that regulate all aspects of RNA metabolism including RNA splicing, export from the nucleus, RNA localization, mRNA turn-over as well as translation. Given their diverse functions, cells express a variety of RNA-binding proteins, which play important roles in the pathologies of a number of diseases. In this review we focus on the effect of alcohol on different RNA-binding proteins and their possible contribution to alcohol-related disorders, and discuss the role of these proteins in the development of neurological diseases and cancer. We further discuss the conventional methods and newer techniques that are employed to identify RNA-binding proteins.

The association between work trajectories and AUDs w
The objective of this paper was to determine separately the lifetime risk of drinking alcohol for chronic disease and acute injury outcomes as a basis for setting general population drinking guidelines for Australia. Relative risk data for different levels of average consumption of alcohol were combined with age, sex, and disease-specific risks of dying from an alcohol-attributable chronic disease. For injury, combinations of the number of drinks per occasion and frequency of drinking occasions were combined to model lifetime risk of death for different drinking pattern scenarios. A lifetime risk of injury death of 1 in 100 is reached for consumption levels of about three drinks daily per week for women, and three drinks five times a week for men. For chronic disease death, lifetime risk increases by about 10% with each 10-gram (one drink) increase in daily average alcohol consumption, although risks are higher for women than men, particularly at higher average consumption levels. Lifetime risks ...

The latest statistics, released in August by the government, show that alcohol problems are on the rise. An estimated 17.6 million American adults -- 8.5 percent of the population -- now fit the diagnostic criteria for having an alcohol-use disorder. Alcohol abuse is often defined as recurrent drinking that disrupts work, school or home life or occurs in hazardous situations; alcohol dependence, also known as alcoholism, is defined as impaired control over drinking, preoccupation with drinking, withdrawal symptoms or high tolerance to alcohol.. ...
Alcohol-use disorder (AUD) is one of the main causes of preventable disease and liver disease-associated mortality in the United States and worldwide.

Study shows that alcohol consumption, in particular heavy drinking and alcohol-use disorders, is an important risk factor for the incidence of pneumonia
704,803 (2.7%) patients identified with AUDs had a threefold higher risk of death (HR = 2.98; 95% CI: 2.96-3.00) and died on average 12.2 years younger (men: 10.4, 95% CI: 10.3-10.5; women: 13.7, 95% CI: 13.6-13.9). AUDs were associated with significantly higher risks of hospital admission for all alcohol-attributable disease categories: digestive diseases, cancers (exception: breast cancer), cardiovascular diseases, dementia, infectious diseases, and injuries. Elevated risks were highest for liver diseases that were associated with about two-third of deaths in patients with AUDs (men: 64.3%; women: 71.1%).. CONCLUSIONS ...
On November 5, 2019, an OHA Administrative Judge (AJ) issued a decision in which he determined that an Individuals DOE access authorization should not be restored. The Individual had been diagnosed with Alcohol Use Disorder, Severe, (AUD) by a DOE Psychologist (the DOE Psychologist), after having been voluntarily hospitalized for treatment of his alcohol disorder. In addition, a court had issued a restraining order against the Individual after finding that he had committed a ba. ttery on a household member. At the hearing conducted by the AJ, the Individual attempted to mitigate the concerns arising from his AUD, by showing that he regularly attends Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings, had not consumed alcohol for six months, and had begun undergoing Individual counseling a week before the hearing. He also testified that he intended to obtain an AA sponsor and to begin working AAs 12-Step Program. After the hearing, he submitted a letter from an Individual indicating that he was the ...
In 2015, a study found that 30% of Americans have suffered an alcohol-use disorder at some point in their lives-but only 20% of those suffering seek treatment. Denial, stigma, and fear keep many Americans trapped in a vicious cycle of addiction that affects not just themselves but also their families.. With this currently untitled short, we hope to artistically and effectively challenge pre-conceptions about alcoholism by showing the devastating effect one mans alcohol abuse has on his family while also offering hope to those who are trapped by this disease..

A new report from the UK finds that when it comes to treating alcohol-related ailments, middle-aged patients cost Englands National Health Service significantly more than younger adults.. And while it makes sense that booze would take more of a toll on older adults than the younger set - after all, theyve got quite a few more years of drinking under their proverbial belts - the magnitude of the cost difference is whats startling: Alcohol-related hospital admissions for 55- to 74-year olds cost 10 times that of 16- to 24-year-olds. The number of older patients admitted for alcohol-related problems was about eight times higher than the number of younger patients admitted.. The report, from the UKs national agency on alcohol misuse, found that overall alcohol-related hospital admissions cost England nearly £2 billion in 2010-2011.. Agency chief Eric Appleby said its a common perception in England that young people are responsible for rising alcohol treatment costs, but our findings show ...
