Lymphocyte proliferation inhibitory factor (PIF) in alcoholic liver disease. (1/5630)

Lymphocyte proliferation inhibitory factor (PIF) was determined in the supernatants of PHA-stimulated lymphocytes from patients with alcoholic liver disease. PIF was assayed by determining inhibition of DNA synthesis in WI-38 human lung fibroblasts. A two-fold greater inhibition in thymidine incorporation into DNA by lung fibroblasts was observed in supernatants of PHA stimulated lymphocytes from patients with alcoholic hepatitis or active Laennec's cirrhosis as compared with that found in control subjects or patients with fatty liver. It is suggested that decreased liver cell regeneration seen in some patients with alcoholic hepatitis may be due to increased elaboration of PIF.  (+info)

Antibodies against phospholipids and oxidized LDL in alcoholic patients. (2/5630)

Antiphospholipid antibodies (APA) are a generic term describing antibodies that recognize various phospholipids. Hepatocyte damage is a cardinal event in the course of alcoholic liver injury and autoantibodies against phospholipids could play an important role in this process. APA in alcoholic patients seem to reflect membrane lesions, impairment of immunological reactivity, liver disease progression and they correlate significantly with disease severity. LDL oxidation is supposed to be one of the most important pathogenic mechanisms of atherosclerosis and antibodies against oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) are some kind of an epiphenomenon of this process. The scope of our study was to determine some autoantibodies (IgG-oxLDL and antiphospholipid antibodies) and their possible changes in alcoholic patients. We studied IgG-oxLDL and four APA - anticardiolipin antibodies (ACA), antiphosphatidylserine antibodies (APSA) antiphosphatidylethanolamine antibodies (APE) and antiphosphatidylcholine antibodies (APCA) in 35 alcoholic patients with mildly affected liver function at the beginning of the abuse treatment. The control group consisted of 60 healthy blood donors. In the studied group, we obtained positive results concerning total ACA in 17.1 % of alcoholic patients (8.3 % in the control group), 11.4 % IgG-ACA (6.7 %), 8.6 % IgM-ACA (3.3 %), 14.3 % total APE (6.7 %), 14.3 % total APCA (8.3 %) and 20 % total APSA (8.3 % in the control group). The IgG-oxLDL (406.4+/-52.5 vs 499.9+/-52.5 mU/ml) was not affected in alcoholic patients. We conclude that the autoantibodies against oxLDL are present in sera of alcoholics and healthy blood donors. Based on our results which revealed a wide range of IgG-oxLDL titres in the healthy population, this parameter does not appear to be very promising for the evaluation of the risk of atherosclerosis. Alcoholics with only mild affection of liver functions did not exhibit a significantly higher prevalence of all studied antiphospholipid antibodies (ACA, APSA, APE, APCA) which could lead to membrane lesions in these patients.  (+info)

Involvement of cytochromes P-450 2E1 and 3A4 in the 5-hydroxylation of salicylate in humans. (3/5630)

Hydroxylation of salicylate into 2,3 and 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acids (2,3-DHBA and 2,5-DHBA) by human liver microsomal preparations was investigated. Kinetic studies demonstrated that salicylate was 5-hydroxylated with two apparent Km: one high-affinity Km of 606 microM and one low-affinity Km greater than 2 mM. Liver microsomes prepared from 15 human samples catalyzed the formation of 2,5-DHBA at metabolic rate of 21.7 +/- 8.5 pmol/mg/min. The formation of 2, 3-DHBA was not P-450 dependent. Formation of 2,5-DHBA was inhibited by 36 +/- 14% following preincubation of microsomes with diethyldithiocarbamate, a mechanism-based selective inhibitor of P-450 2E1. Furthermore, the efficiency of inhibition was significantly correlated with four catalytic activities specific to P-450 2E1, whereas the residual activity was correlated with three P-450 3A4 catalytic activities. Troleandomycin, a mechanism-based inhibitor selective to P-450 3A4, inhibited by 30 +/- 12% the 5-hydroxylation of salicylate, and this inhibition was significantly correlated with nifedipine oxidation, specific to P-450 3A4. The capability of seven recombinant human P-450s to hydroxylate salicylate demonstrated that P-450 2E1 and 3A4 contributed to 2, 5-DHBA formation in approximately equal proportions. The Km values of recombinant P-450 2E1 and 3A4, 280 and 513 microM, respectively, are in the same range as the high-affinity Km measured with human liver microsomes. The plasmatic metabolic ratio 2,5-DHBA/salicylate, measured 2 h after ingestion of 1 g acetylsalicylate, was increased 3-fold in 12 alcoholic patients at the beginning of their withdrawal period versus 15 control subjects. These results confirm that P-450 2E1, inducible by ethanol, is involved in the 5-hydroxylation of salicylate in humans. Furthermore, this ratio was still increased by 2-fold 1 week after ethanol withdrawal. This finding suggests that P-450 3A4, known to be also inducible by alcoholic beverages, plays an important role in this increase, because P-450 2E1 returned to normal levels in less than 3 days after ethanol withdrawal. Finally, in vivo and in vitro data demonstrated that P-450 2E1 and P-450 3A4, both inducible by alcohols, catalyzed the 5-hydroxylation of salicylate.  (+info)

The role of gamma-hydroxybutyric acid in the treatment of alcoholism: from animal to clinical studies. (4/5630)

Since its discovery nearly 40 years ago, gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) has attracted several waves of scientific interest due to new developments in the knowledge of its mechanisms of action and ideas for its potential use in clinical practice. Its effects have been claimed to treat different psychiatric conditions, but over time its use has become limited to a few specific situations (e.g. sedating patients in non-painful surgical procedures and narcolepsy). New interest in the drug derives from its potential use in the treatment of alcoholism. Recent studies demonstrated a marked effect of the substance in suppressing ethanol (ETOH) withdrawal symptoms and in reducing craving for alcohol, compared to other available drugs. However, GHB has to be given under very careful supervision because of its side-effects, including the risk of abuse and dependence and possible interference with the metabolic pathways of endogenous GHB and ETOH. This short review discusses these and related issues and we hope that it will stimulate further interest in GHB.  (+info)

The impact of Alcohol and Alcoholism among substance abuse journals. (5/5630)

This article concerns the question of journal impact factor and other bibliometric indicators made available by the Institute for Scientific Information in their Journal Citation Report for 1996. The impact factors of journals within the subject category 'substance abuse' are listed along with total citations, immediacy indices, and cited half-lives. The relationship between cited and citing journals is discussed with the main focus on the data available for Alcohol and Alcoholism. Some of the problems and limitations of bibliometric measures of productivity are dealt with, especially when these are used to evaluate the work of individual scientists. Although bibliometric measures are easy to compute, they become difficult to interpret, such as when dealing with collaborative research and the problem posed by multiple authorship. The need to adjust impact factors and citation counts for the number of co-authors in a paper becomes important when credit has to be attributed to one individual from a multi-author paper. This is often necessary in connection with grant applications and when making decisions about academic promotion and tenure. The impact factor of Alcohol and Alcoholism has increased steadily over the past 5 years, even after adjusting for the number of self-citations, which resulted in an even greater increase in impact. However, the impact factors of substance abuse journals are generally low, compared with disciplines such as immunology, genetics, and biochemistry. Some suggestions are made for increasing the impact factors of substance abuse journals if this is considered necessary. But instead of paying attention to the impact factor of a journal, scientists should give more consideration to the speed and efficiency of the editorial handling of their manuscripts and particularly to the quality and timeliness of the peer review.  (+info)

Enhancing the identification of excessive drinkers on medical wards: a 1-year follow-up study. (6/5630)

This paper describes a 1-year follow-up study examining whether hospital ward doctors and nurses continue to take quantitative alcohol histories and provide brief intervention to problem drinkers on general medical wards after the introduction of a simple protocol. Regular training in the use of this protocol was stipulated in the annual service contract between the Health Authority and the Hospital Trusts. Improvements in staff practice persisted at 1-year follow-up, although it fell from a peak at an earlier phase of the study. The positive role of state purchasers of health services in sustaining improvements in clinical practice is discussed.  (+info)

Urban-rural comparisons of drink-driving behaviour among late teens: a preliminary investigation. (7/5630)

A preliminary study was conducted to examine the nature and extent of urban-rural differences in self-reported drinking and driving among youths in Western Australia. A total of 102 youths aged 17, 18 and 19 years were surveyed via a random street sampling technique about their alcohol consumption and drink-driving behaviour. Analyses indicated that urban youths had a significantly higher level of self-reported drink-driving behaviour than their rural counterparts. Males indicated a higher level of self-reported drink-driving behaviour than females. This article also provides a review and summary of youth drink-driving literature with special focus on urban-rural comparisons.  (+info)

Alcohol consumption profile by time in middle-aged men: a longitudinal study based on three different diagnostic instruments. (8/5630)

This longitudinal study aimed at comparing aggregate measures of heavy or problem drinking and their variations across time among the same subjects. We examined middle-aged men participating in a health survey over a 5-year interval. Of the 133 consecutive men in the whole age group interviewed as 40-year-olds in 1989, 114 were reached and re-interviewed in 1994. Alcohol consumption was measured by self-report, Malmo-modified Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test (Mm-MAST), and serum carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT). Self-reported alcohol consumption decreased with years (142 vs 105 g/week, P = 0.01), as did CDT (16.9 vs 14.4 U/l, P = 0.02), but there was no change in the Mm-MAST results. There was no significant difference in the number of heavy drinkers (either Mm-MAST score > or = 3, or by self-reported alcohol consumption > or = 280 g/week, or by CDT > or = 20 U/l) at 40 and 45 years of age (37 and 47% respectively). At the individual level, alcohol consumption both increased and decreased with age. At 45 years of age 5/114 (4%) of the men reported that they had increased their alcohol consumption by more than 80 g/week and 25/114 (22%) said that they had reduced their drinking by the same amount. The remaining 84 (74%) reported drinking the same amount as 5 years earlier (+/- 80 g/week). This indicates that alcohol drinking habits are not stable in middle age. Most heavy drinkers in both age groups were detected by Mm-MAST and this proportion increased with age while the proportion of positive self-reports and CDTs decreased. Thus, the social consequences, measured here by the Mm-MAST, may be more readily experienced with years even at smaller consumption levels.  (+info)

BACKGROUND Offspring of individuals with alcoholism are at increased risk for psychiatric illness, but the effects of gender on this risk are not well known. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that the gender of the parent with alcoholism and the gender of offspring affect the association between parental alcoholism and offspring psychiatric illness. METHOD We analyzed the National Epidemiological Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC) data to examine the gender-specific prevalence of axis I and axis II disorders in 23,006 male and 17,368 female respondents with and without a history of paternal or maternal alcoholism. Adjusted odds ratios were calculated for the disorders based on gender and presence of maternal or paternal alcoholism. RESULTS Maternal or paternal alcoholism was associated with a higher prevalence of every disorder examined, regardless of the gender of offspring. Gender-related differences in prevalences were present in nearly all examined disorders, and the

Alcohol dependence is a heavy burden on patients, their families, and society. Epidemiological studies indicate that alcohol dependence will affect many individuals at some time in their lives, with men affected more frequently than women. Since alcohol-dependent patients often exhibit a lack of social skills and suffer from interpersonal problems, the aim of this study is to elucidate whether men and women experience the same interpersonal problems. Eighty-five alcohol-dependent patients (48 men; 37 women) after detoxification and 62 healthy controls (35 men; 27 women) were recruited. Interpersonal problems were measured with the Inventory of Interpersonal Problems (IIP-64). Additionally, alcohol-dependent patients were interviewed with the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) and were subtyped according to Leschs Alcohol Typology (LAT). There were no significant gender differences in the AUDIT and LAT between alcohol-dependent men and women. Interpersonal problems of alcohol-dependent
Alcohol dependency is common, but it is also commonly overlooked. One reason why is that the negative symptoms of alcoholism are closely linked with other chronic health conditions and aging in general. If a woman over 65 imbibes in several drinks, then falls and is injured, the cause of the fall will likely be attributed to her age - even if it is more likely that alcohol caused the fall.. Likewise, medical issues such as headaches, fatigue, stomach pain, and depression are common symptoms of drinking to excess on a regular basis. Still, if these symptoms appear in older women, they are often written off as age-related.. Another reason for overlooking alcohol dependency in older women is that women are not largely thought of as having substance abuse problems. By contrast, men are generally the ones who end up on the receiving end of interventions and legal action because of their behavior while under the influence. It is generally accepted that if a man is seen overindulging in alcohol, he ...

FERREIRA, Luciano Nery et al. Prevalence and associated factors of alcohol abuse and alcohol addiction. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2013, vol.18, n.11, pp.3409-3418. ISSN 1413-8123. https://doi.org/10.1590/S1413-81232013001100030.. The scope of this study is to estimate the prevalence of alcohol abuse and alcohol addiction and the respective associated factors in the urban population of a city of northeastern Brazil. It is a population-based cross-sectional study that investigated the consumption of alcohol of 270 people living in the urban area of Jequié, State of Bahia. Alcohol abuse, defined by a score of , 8 from responses to the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT). Alcohol addiction was identified by a score , 2 obtained in the application of the Cut down, Annoyed by criticism, Guilty and Eye-opener (CAGE). The analysis used the logistic regression model. The prevalence of alcohol abuse was 18.5%. For alcohol addiction it was 10.4%. After adjusted analysis, the groups ...
Alcohol dependency is a common and complex issue that develops for a number of reasons. Each addict has their own reasons for drinking and different circumstances under which they may have developed the problem.. Alcohol dependency has a multitude of social implications, but the health related issues are some of the worst with pregnancy drinking becoming an ever increasing social issue.. The problem with drinking starts when the line between acceptable consumption is crossed and people enter into unacceptable territory, such as drinking more than the daily recommended limit each day, binge drinking every day, morning drinking, neglecting other activities in favour of drinking, lying about your drinking habits etc. Daily drinking most often starts out as occasional, social drinking and develops into an addiction.. Because the majority of problem drinkers start out as social drinkers, the social festive season we are in at the moment can be a concern. Over the festive season parties abound and ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Are alcoholism treatments effective? The Project MATCH data. AU - Cutler, Robert B.. AU - Fishbain, David A.. PY - 2005/7/14. Y1 - 2005/7/14. N2 - Background: Project MATCH was the largest and most expensive alcoholism treatment trial ever conducted. The results were disappointing. There were essentially no patient-treatment matches, and three very different treatments produced nearly identical outcomes. These results were interpreted post hoc as evidence that all three treatments were quite effective. We re-analyzed the data in order to estimate effectiveness in relation to quantity of treatment. Methods: This was a secondary analysis of data from a multisite clinical trial of alcohol dependent volunteers (N = 1726) who received outpatient psychosocial therapy. Analyses were confined to the primary outcome variables, percent days abstinent (PDA) and drinks per drinking day (DDD). Overall tests between treatment outcome and treatment quantity were conducted. Next, three specific ...
If you or a loved one have been drinking too much or have experienced problems with alcoholism, you probably know a thing or two about the harmful short-term effects of alcohol abuse. There are the hangovers, the vomiting, the big red nose with the broken capillaries, the shakes. Theres the violence, too, and all the bad decisions you make. But you know all that. What you might not know is that alcohol addiction can have serious long-term effects on almost every system in your body.. Most people know that alcoholism can cause cirrhosis of the liver. But did you know that it can also lead to neuropathic disorders and stroke? Hepatitis is a major risk, as well as cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, breast, colon, and liver. Cardiovascular issues such as myocardial infarction, cardiomyopathy, atrial fibrillation, and hypertension are also extremely common among patients with alcohol dependency. Gastrointestinal problems such as gastritis and pancreatitis can also result. The fact is that ...
This report presents the findings of the 1987 National Drug and Alcoholism Treatment Unit Survey, a national survey designed to measure the location, scope, and characteristics of drug abuse and alcoholism treatment and prevention facilities, services, and activities throughout the United States, including the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories. An introductory chapter describes the background of the survey, the report format, characteristics of the reporting base, and data considerations and limitations. Chapter 2 examines utilization rates, locations of units, unit ownership, unit orientation, the annual unduplicated count of clients, client demographics, type of care, services provided, and estimates of the number of intravenous drug users among both drug abuse and alcoholism clients. Chapter 3 presents data on drug abuse clients and chapter 4 examines alcoholism clients. Since separate client matrices were used to collect data on drug abuse and alcoholism clients,
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 ...
What are the underlying reasons that alcoholism interventions fail?. First, the intervention may fail if the alcoholic doesnt follow through with the treatment program both during and after formal treatment.. Second, because his or her reasoning and logical abilities and emotional stability may be decreased because of chronic alcoholism, the alcoholic may simply leave the intervention session.. What this essentially means is that the well-intentioned family members will have to deal with the failed intervention in addition to the rest of their alcohol-related difficulties and problems.. The third reason that alcoholism interventions may prove to be unsuccessful is the fact that the alcoholic may not be ready for alcohol treatment at this time.. Stated in another way, some therapists believe that quite a few alcoholism interventions lack a consistent track record because several alcoholics are unable to go through treatment until they get to the point in their lives when they can make this ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Alexithymia in alcohol-dependent patients is mediated by stress, anxiety and loss of self-control over drinking. AU - Thorberg, Fred. AU - Young, Ross M. AU - Lyvers, Michael F.. AU - Connor, Jason AU - Tyssen, Reidar. AU - London, Edythe D.. AU - Feeney, Gerald F X. PY - 2017/2/1. Y1 - 2017/2/1. N2 - Aims: Up to 67% of alcohol-dependent patients in treatment have alexithymia, a personality trait associated with emotion regulation difficulties. A single study reported that alcohol expectancies related to affective change and social enhancement partially mediated the relationship of alexithymia and alcohol dependence. However, no research has explored the potential explanatory power of other key factors such as stress, anxiety and obsessive thoughts about alcohol use and compulsive behaviors associated with alcohol dependence as mechanisms to elucidate the role of alcohol in alcohol-dependent patients with alexithymia. By integrating frontal lobe theory, the stress-alexithymia ...
Acamprosate has been shown to reduce drinking days in alcohol dependent patients and promote abstinence, with few reported side effects. A limitation of these studies, however, has been their lack of generalizability due to restrictive inclusion and exclusion criteria. Furthermore, most of the previous studies of acamprosate have been conducted in Europe, in a different treatment setting from the typical American Family Medicine center, where alcohol dependent patients are most likely to be first identified in the U.S.. The present study is designed to determine the efficacy of acamprosatefor alcohol dependence in a Family Medicine setting using minimal psychotherapeutic interventions-as would also likely occur in a primary care setting. The study will be a 12-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trial comparing 666 mg acamprosate t.i.d. to placebo in patients at the UNC Family Medicine Center with alcohol dependence. Subjects will be seen by Family Medicine physicians and receive ...
A new study of the effects of religiosity on the genetic variance of problem alcohol use in males and females has found that religiosity can moderate genetic effects on problem alcohol use during adolescence but not during early adulthood
Some physicians, scientists and others have rejected the disease theory of alcoholism on logical, empirical and other grounds.[48][49][50][51][52][53] Indeed, some addiction experts such as Stanton Peele are outspoken in their rejection of the disease model, and other prominent alcohol researchers such as Nick Heather have authored books intending to disprove the disease model.[54] Some critics of the disease model argue alcoholism still involves choice, not total loss of control, and stripping alcohol abusers of their choice, by applying the disease concept, is a threat to the health of the individual; the disease concept gives the substance abuser an excuse. A disease cannot be cured by force of will; therefore, adding the medical label transfers the responsibility from the abuser to caregivers. Inevitably the abusers become unwilling victims, and just as inevitably they take on that role. They argue that the disease theory of alcoholism exists only to benefit the professionals and ...

Poor response inhibition has been implicated in the development of alcohol dependence, yet little is known about how neural pathways underlying cognitive control are affected in this disorder. Moreover, endogenous opioid levels may impact the functionality of inhibitory control pathways. This study investigated the relationship between alcohol dependence severity and functional connectivity of fronto-striatal networks during response inhibition in an alcohol-dependent sample. A secondary aim of this study was to test the moderating effect of a functional polymorphism (A118G) of the μ-opioid receptor (OPRM1) gene. Twenty individuals with alcohol dependence (six females; 90% Caucasian; mean age = 29.4) who were prospectively genotyped on the OPRM1 gene underwent blood oxygen level-dependent functional magnetic resonance imaging while performing a Stop-Signal Task. The relationship between alcohol dependence severity and functional connectivity within fronto-striatal networks important for ...
People who are homosexual, bisexual or lesbian or who have had a same sex relationship in the past are 1.5 to 2x more likely to have experienced violent events during their childhood and have double the risk of experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder as a consequence of these events. Researchers from Harvard School of Public Health and the Childrens Hospital, Boston used data from the National Epidemiological Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions and found that 48% of sexual minority women and 28% of sexual minority men experienced violence or abuse in childhood compared to 21% of women and 20% of men in the general population ...

Williams, Ph.D., Center for Integrative and Translational Genomics, The University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, Tennessee.. Antonio Noronha, Ph.D., Division of Neuroscience and Behavior, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, Bethesda, Maryland.. It is easy to think of genetics as the study of genes, but given our current knowledge of genetics, this definition is now considered inadequate. Genetics is the study of differences among individuals-even between identical twins. We know that some differences between individuals are linked to variations in DNA sequence (i.e., the genome), but most differences actually are caused by complex interactions between our genetic endowment and the many environments to which we are exposed, by choice and fate. The genetics underlying the bodys responses to alcohol are a superb example of the complexity of the issues related to the study of genetics. The role of the ...

IT INCLUDES DETAILED MODIFICATIONS TO STANDARD APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS THAT MUST BE USED WHEN PREPARING APPLICATIONS IN RESPONSE TO THIS RFA. PURPOSE The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) is seeking grant applications to conduct research on alcohols effects on sleep. It is well documented that acute and chronic alcohol consumption cause sleep disturbances. In those with alcoholism, sleep patterns may never return to normal, and continuing sleep problems may be a core factor in alcohol relapse. Despite the adverse effects of alcohol on sleep and the serious implications for alcoholism treatment, the topic of alcohol and sleep is currently an understudied area. The ...
Chronic alcoholism is definitely characterized by impaired control over emotionally motivated actions towards alcohol use. of cortico-limbic fiber degradation in emotional dysregulation in alcoholism is now emerging. High axial diffusivity is taken as an index of degradation of axonal health or integrity and radial diffusivity indexes the fibers myelin sheath integrity.61-63 This information MK 3207 HCl can be used to determine which fiber tracts are and are not affected by chronic alcohol consumption; MK 3207 HCl whether fiber compromise is due to axonal damage a breakdown of the myelin sheath or both; and how fiber microstructural integrity may relate to brain functional compromise.64-66 DTI-based quantitative fiber tracking in alcoholism Until recently few studies had investigated alcohol effects on microstructural integrity of fiber tracts by using DTI-based quantitative fiber tractography (chronic alcoholism27 67 fetal alcohol spectrum disorder7071; for review see ref 72).

Although there is a debate among experts over whether alcoholism should be considered a disease, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism recognizes alcoholism as a disease. The risk for developing alcoholism is influenced by a persons genes and lifestyle behaviors. Alcoholism is a chronic disease that lasts for a lifetime. If diagnosed and treated early, however, alcoholism may be completely cured and severe complications prevented. Chronic alcohol abuse increases a persons risk for developing serious health problems, such as liver disease, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, cancer (especially cancer of the esophagus, mouth, and throat), and pancreatitis.. Approximately two million Americans suffer from liver damage caused by alcohol abuse. About 10 to 20 percent of heavy drinkers will develop cirrhosis of the liver, which is characterized by scarring of the liver and causes irreversible damage. If heavy drinkers do not stop drinking, cirrhosis can cause poor health ...

According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, 17.6 million Americans - one in 12 adults - abuses alcohol or is alcohol dependent. Currently about 80 percent of alcoholics relapse within one year of becoming abstinent.. The current study, which included investigators from across the country, has identified several compounds in kudzu extract - namely, the isoflavones puerarin, daidzin, and daidzein-that decrease the intake of alcohol is animals. More specificially, daidzin is the most potent of the isoflavones, and its ability to inhibit alcohol consumption is attributed to the fact that it is a selective inhibitor of ALDH-2.. Aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (ALDH-2) breaks down alcohol into acetaldehyde. When kudzu is consumed, the daidzin inhibits ALDH-2 and allows acetaldehyde to accumulate. An excess of acetaldehyde causes flushing and an ill feeling, which makes people much less likely to want to drink alcohol.. The investigators then synthesized a drug based on daidzin and ...
The hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) regulates appetite and food intake. GLP-1 receptor (GLP-1R) activation also attenuates the reinforcing properties of alcohol in rodents. The present translational study is based on four human genetic association studies and one preclinical study providing data that support the hypothesis that GLP-1R may have a role in the pathophysiology of alcohol use disorder (AUD). Case-control analysis (N=908) was performed on a sample of individuals enrolled in the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) intramural research program. The Study of Addiction: Genetics and Environment (SAGE) sample (N=3803) was used for confirmation purposes. Post hoc analyses were carried out on data from a human laboratory study of intravenous alcohol self-administration (IV-ASA;N=81) in social drinkers and from a functional magnetic resonance imaging study in alcohol-dependent individuals (N=22) subjected to a Monetary Incentive Delay task. In the preclinical study, a
The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) has published a report on alcohol and its effect on sleep (Alcohol Alert No. 41). The report discusses the effects of alcohol consumption on sleep patterns, the potential health consequences of alcohol consumption combined with disturbed sleep, and the risk for relapse in patients with alcoholism who fail to recover normal sleep patterns.. According to the report, alcohol consumption affects the function of brain chemicals that influence sleep. Sleep disorders may be induced by alcohol consumption due to disruption of the sequence and duration of sleep states and by changing the amount of time it takes to fall asleep and the total sleep time. The adverse effects of sleep deprivation are increased following alcohol consumption. Reduced alertness may impair driving performance and cause problems in certain work situations.. Older persons are particularly at risk, because alcohol levels in the blood and brain are higher in older persons ...

Alcohol use disorder is a diagnosis made when an individual has severe problems related to drinking alcohol. Alcohol use disorder can cause major health, social, and economic problems, and can endanger affected individuals and others through behaviors prompted by impaired decision-making and lowered inhibitions, such as aggression, unprotected sex, or driving while intoxicated.. Alcohol use disorder is a broad diagnosis that encompasses several commonly used terms describing problems with drinking. It includes alcoholism, also called alcohol addiction, which is a long-lasting (chronic) condition characterized by a powerful, compulsive urge to drink alcohol and the inability to stop drinking after starting. In addition to alcoholism, alcohol use disorder includes alcohol abuse, which involves problem drinking without addiction.. Habitual excessive use of alcohol changes the chemistry of the brain and leads to tolerance, which means that over time the amount of alcohol ingested needs to be ...

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
Our research program focuses on behavioral and neurobiological effects from fetal alcohol exposure alone or in combination with prenatal stress. We study rhesus monkeys, examining growth and development, learning and memory, and stress reactivity across the life span. We also use state-of-the-art neuroimaging techniques to elucidate possible abnormalities in neural processing. We assess dopamine system function, using positron emission tomography, to determine whether altered DA function might underlie some of the motor, learning, and neuroendocrine outcomes associated with these prenatal treatments. We have recently expanded our nonhuman primate model to examine the neurochemical and developmental basis for sensory regulation disorders and risk factors for excessive alcohol consumption in adulthood. Our work is funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. (Retrieved on September 16, 215 from https://www.waisman.wisc.edu/pi-Schneider-Mary.htm ...
Two years ago, the National Institutes of Healths Scientific Management Review Board (SMRB) issued a report recommending that NIH move to establish a new institute focused on substance use, abuse, and addiction-related research to optimize NIH research in these areas. Another option strongly considered by the SMRB was the functional integration of existing research resources, rather than creation of a new institute.. After rigorous review and extensive consultation with stakeholders, I have concluded that it is more appropriate for NIH to pursue functional integration, rather than major structural reorganization, to advance substance use, abuse, and addiction-related research. To that end, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) will retain their institutional identities, while strengthening their ongoing efforts to work more closely with each other and with related research programs at other institutes and centers.. NIH has ...
Researchers examined the effects of placebo beverages in group settings for possible disruptive effects caused by other participants. They found that participants in group settings reported consuming an alcoholic beverage and feeling intoxicated, just like when consuming a placebo beverage alone. Their result adds to the methodological toolkit for researchers when isolating the effects of alcohol in social contexts. This study, Using Placebo Beverages in Group Alcohol Studies, was published in Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research. It was supported by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism ...

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

Health Risks Associated with Use of Illicit Drugs and Alcohol. The effects of alcohol and other drugs can be devastating, and include death, assault, sexual abuse, injury, academic problems, suicide attempts, and other health problems. Read more from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, and the National Institute on Drug Abuse. The use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol carry significant social, physical, and emotional health risks. Users may suffer damage to key body organs such as the heart, liver, kidneys, and central nervous system. Drugs can kill the user, and the use of drugs and alcohol during pregnancy may cause birth defects or death of unborn babies. Drug users may experience difficulties with concentration and memory that impair learning. They can exhibit mood swings, impaired judgment, isolation, and depression, all of which can contribute to impaired driving, injuries, accidents, domestic or random violence, and sexual assault. Drugs can be instrumental in ...

OBJECTIVE: To examine lifetime drinking patterns in men and women with alcohol-induced pancreatitis (AIP) in comparison with patients with alcoholic use disorder (AUD) without pancreatic disease. METHODS: Alcohol consumption patterns were assessed using a validated questionnaire, the Lifetime Drinking History (LDH), during an outpatient visit. Patients diagnosed with AIP were matched for gender and age (+/- 5 years) with patients with AUD in addiction treatment. RESULTS: A total of 45 patients with AIP (35 males, 10 females) and 45 AUD patients were included. Alcohol consumption patterns were not significantly different between males and females with AIP and those with history of acute AIP and chronic pancreatitis (CP). Alcohol consumption patterns of AIP and AUD patients were similar in terms of onset age and duration of alcohol consumption, lifetime alcohol intake and drinks per drinking day. A higher proportion of binge drinking was found among patients with AUD than those with AIP (median ...
Alcoholism is a long standing health issue, and there has been ongoing research to seek out drugs that could effectively help to treat alcoholism, acute and long-term. According to an article by Johnson, Swift, Addolorato, Ciraulo, and Myrick (2005), a challenge has been to identify medications that not only reduce the rewarding effects of alcohol, but the dependence, post cessation craving, and the withdrawal craving. Lorazepam and gabapentin have been used for the detoxification of alcohol dependent patients. Lorazepam is a type of benzodiazepine, an antianxiety medication. Gabapentin is a type of anticonvulsant drug originally used to prevent seizures. Benzodiazepines represent the standard of care for the treatment of alcohol withdrawal (Myrick, Malcolm, Randall, Boyle, Anton, Becker, & Randall, 2009). In recent studies, gabapentin has shown to be effective and safe (Johnson et. al, 2005). The question remains: which drug is more effective in the treatment of alcohol withdrawal? In an ...
BACKGROUND: Food insecurity and alcohol consumption are prevalent and have health consequences among people living with HIV infection or AIDS (PLWHA). Food insecurity could be associated with unhealthy alcohol use via hunger or other mechanisms. However, it is not well-known whether the two (food insecurity and unhealthy alcohol use) are associated. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine an association between food insecurity and unhealthy alcohol use in people with HIV/AIDS and substance use disorder. It was hypothesized that food insecurity, compared to food security, would be associated with unhealthy alcohol use in this population. METHODS: This study is a cross sectional analysis of data collected from adults with HIV infection and current alcohol or other drug dependence or ever injection drug use, who were participants in a cohort study known as the Boston Alcohol Research Collaboration on HIV/AIDS (ARCH) study. Food insecurity, the independent variable, was assessed ...
It was recently announced by the director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that a new institute will be created that will study substance use, abuse, and addiction research and related public health initiatives. This institute will replace the existing National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), and other institutes dealing with addiction. As the NIH director states, creating the new, unified institute makes scientific sense and would enhance NIHs efforts to address the substance abuse and addiction problems that take such a terrible toll on our society. In other words, the brain processes involved with addiction are universal across substances, so we shouldnt be studying them in a piecemeal fashion based on their legal status. Makes sense right? Perhaps its time our lawmakers follow suit and pass laws which treat addiction as the public health issue it is, instead of the current criminal/non-criminal system we now employ ...

Binge drinking is the most common pattern of excessive alcohol use in the United States and those who binge drink tend to do so frequently and with high intensity. According to the latest estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, excessive alcohol use is responsible for 88,000 deaths in the United States each year, including 1 in 10 deaths among working-age adults aged 20-64 years.^1^ Estimates also suggest that over 700 Utahns die from alcohol-attributable causes each year and Utah is ranked seventh in the nation for alcohol poisoning deaths.^2^ Excessive alcohol use is also associated with many health and social harms, including liver cirrhosis, certain cancers, unintentional injuries, violence and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. Excessive drinking cost the United States $249 billion in 2010.^3^ In 2014, the cost of excessive alcohol use in Utah was estimated to be $1.2 billion.^4^[[br]][[br]] ---- #Preventing Chronic Disease, 2014, Contribution of ...
To determine the severity of dependence on alcohol in patients with alcoholic liver disease the severity of alcohol dependence questionnaire was administered to 193 patients with various types of alcoholic liver disease established histologically, in whom a detailed history of lifetime alcohol consumption was also obtained. Only 34 patients (18%) were classified as being severely dependent compared with 56% of patients without overt liver disease who were attending a neighbouring alcohol treatment unit. There was a significant correlation between the severity of dependence and mean daily alcohol consumption (r = 0.45 and 0.39 for men and women, respectively) but not duration of drinking. Dependence scores tended to be lower in patients with cirrhosis than in those with precirrhotic liver disease, but this difference reached significance only in women. These findings confirm that patients who develop chronic alcoholic liver disease are usually only mildly dependent on alcohol and support the ...
Alcohol consumption is causally linked to several cancers but the evidence for stomach cancer is inconclusive. In our study, the association between long-term alcohol intake and risk of stomach cancer and its subtypes was evaluated. We performed a pooled analysis of data collected at baseline from 491 714 participants in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition and the Melbourne Collaborative Cohort Study. Hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were estimated for incident stomach cancer in relation to lifetime alcohol intake and group-based life course intake trajectories, adjusted for potential confounders including Helicobacter pylori infection. In all, 1225 incident stomach cancers (78% noncardia) were diagnosed over 7 094 637 person-years; 984 in 382 957 study participants with lifetime alcohol intake data (5 455 507 person-years). Although lifetime alcohol intake was not associated with overall stomach cancer risk, we observed a weak positive ...
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 ...
Ibdahs research team used rats bred for high activity, or runner rats, to test if increased metabolism protected the liver against fatty deposits and inflammation. One group of rats was exposed to chronic alcohol use for six weeks and compared to a second group that was not exposed to alcohol during the same time period.. As expected, we found that fatty deposits were greater in the livers of the chronic alcohol group, said Ibdah, who also serves as director of the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the MU School of Medicine. However, chronic alcohol ingestion did not cause significant inflammation in the liver. Higher physical activity levels seemed to protect against the metabolic dysfunction that eventually leads to irreversible liver damage.. Ibdahs team also found that chronic alcohol ingestion caused no discernable increase in free fatty acids, triglycerides, insulin or glucose in the blood of the group exposed to alcohol as compared to the control group.. This is ...

N2 - Alterations in hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis function contribute to many of the adverse behavioral effects of chronic voluntary alcohol drinking, including alcohol dependence and mood disorders; limbic brain structures such as the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) may be key sites for these effects. Here, we measured circulating levels of several steroid hormones and performed whole-cell electrophysiological recordings from acutely prepared BNST slices of male rhesus monkeys allowed to self-administer alcohol for 12 months or a control solution. Initial comparisons revealed that BNST neurons in alcohol-drinking monkeys had decreased membrane resistance, increased frequency of spontaneous inhibitory ...

E. Do I ever take an eye-opener/straightener early in the morning to help deal with the hangover?. These are just some questions to help you answer the question. They are not meant to induce shame or guilt, only to indicate whether you need help to stop abusing alcohol.. My work with both alcohol addiction and alcohol reduction therapy has achieved some truly marvellous results with clients. Clients have regained control over alcohol, become empowered, changed their lives, increased their self-belief, self-esteem and confidence.. Other clients have sought to reduce their alcohol consumption, and to use it in moderation once again, removing alcohol as a crutch. Once the feeling of control has been achieved, many of these clients have gone on to choose sobriety, as they appreciate the positive and beneficial impact on their lives..

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).
