  • Alcohol and COVID-19
    • Authors: Chick J.
      Pages: 341 - 342
      Abstract: When there is an epidemic, rumours proliferate about protective nostrums. Various tropical islands and even Manhattan changed hands due to wars and treaties involving nutmeg, which was promoted in Europe as a protection against bubonic plague. Suddenly, in 2020, the price of turmeric increased in South Asia and Indonesia because of the coronavirus pandemic (CNA News, 2020; India Times, 2020).

  • Sharing Alcoholic Drinks and a COVID-19 Outbreak
    • Authors: Mungmungpuntipantip R; Wiwanitkit V.
      Pages: 343 - 343
      Abstract: COVID-19, the new respiratory infection, has spread from China to more than 100 countries (Hsia, 2020). Alcohol-containing hand sanitizer is part of the strategy to prevent person-to-person transmission. In Thailand, we have witnessed the incorrect belief that drinking alcohol can prevent COVID-19. We made the following observation from a group of COVID patients in Thailand (six females and five males, aged 25–28 years old). These patients had joined the same farewell party and drank alcoholic beverage by using the same glass. The cluster of outbreak among these patients occurred within 1 week after the farewell party. The disease investigation showed that there were four other persons joining that party but who did not drink. Those four persons did not develop illness. The incident illustrates that drinking alcoholic beverage does not help prevent COVID-19: the alcoholic concentration in alcoholic beverage is not high enough to kill the virus. In fact, in animal models, alcoholic consumption can cause immune impairment and increased susceptibility to respiratory virus (Meyerholz et al., 2008).

  • New Methanol Poisoning Outbreaks in Iran Following COVID-19 Pandemic
    • Authors: Delirrad M; Mohammadi A.
      Pages: 347 - 348
      Abstract: After the outbreak in China, coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) spread to other countries, including Iran. However, the consequences of the disease in Iran have been different from other countries. Possible reasons for this include the US sanctions on access to essential medicines and equipment, and faulty understanding and mismanagement by the ruling authorities, but also public unawareness and erroneous beliefs regarding alcohol as a protective agent.

  • Disulfiram Ethanol Reaction in a Patient Abstinent from Alcohol Caused by
           Hand Sanitizing
    • Authors: De Sousa A.
      Pages: 349 - 349
      Abstract: Disulfiram has been used successfully over the last 6 decades in the long-term management of alcohol dependence. The patient taking disulfiram is deterred from consuming alcohol due to the knowledge that its reaction with ethanol (DER) (Brewer and Streel, 2018; De Sousa, 2019). The DER consists of uneasiness, nausea, flushing, chest and abdominal discomfort and can be serious in some cases. Patients who have experienced this reaction rarely would wish to experience the same again (Savas and Güllü, 1997). Patients on disulfiram therapy are known to develop DERs when exposed to either food cooked in alcohol, certain sauces that may have alcohol content and due to excessive use of after shaves or scents that may have alcohol content (Savas and Güllü, 1997). The start of the COVID-19 pandemic saw a sharp rise in the use of hand sanitizers as a means of protection from the virus (WHO, 2009). Most sanitizers have ethanol as their base.

  • Complicated Alcohol Withdrawal—An Unintended Consequence of COVID-19
    • Authors: Narasimha V; Shukla L, Mukherjee D, et al.

  • Is Alcohol in Hand Sanitizers Absorbed Through the Skin or Lungs'
           Implications for Disulfiram Treatment
    • Authors: Brewer C; Streel E.
      Pages: 354 - 356
      Abstract: ABSTRACTAim In view of the increase in the use of ethanol-containing hand sanitizers throughout the world due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we wished to review the possible risks to patients treated with disulfiram, following a case report in which an apparent DER (disulfiram–ethanol reaction) was attributed to the cutaneous absorption of alcohol from hand sanitizers as well as by inhalation of vapour.Method Simple experiments to assess the levels of absorption by each route separately.Results Our results strongly suggest that while amounts of alcohol sufficient to cause a DER may be inhaled when hand sanitizers are used in confined spaces, absorption can be avoided by dispersal of the fumes, and absorption from the skin alone does not occur in pharmacologically significant quantities.Conclusion Warnings about absorption of alcohol through the skin from hand sanitizers and products such as perfumes, deodorants and after-shave (whose use is often warned against when disulfiram is prescribed) should be modified accordingly.

  • Neuroprotective Effects of Grape Seed Procyanidins on Ethanol-Induced
           Injury and Oxidative Stress in Rat Hippocampal Neurons
    • Authors: Jin W; Sun M, Yuan B, et al.
      Pages: 357 - 366
      Abstract: AbstractAimsEthanol is a small molecule capable of interacting with numerous targets in the brain, the mechanisms of which are complex and still poorly understood. Studies have revealed that ethanol-induced hippocampal neuronal injury is associated with oxidative stress. Grape seed procyanidin (GSP) is a new type of antioxidant that is believed to scavenge free radicals and be anti-inflammatory. This study evaluated the ability and mechanism by which the GSP improves ethanol-induced hippocampal neuronal injury.MethodsPrimary cultures of hippocampal neurons were exposed to ethanol (11, 33 and 66 mM, 1, 4, 8, 12 and 24 h) and the neuroprotective effects of GSP were assessed by evaluating the activity of superoxide dismutase (SOD), the levels of malondialdehyde (MDA) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and cell morphology.ResultsOur results indicated that GSP prevented ethanol-induced neuronal injury by reducing the levels of MDA and LDH, while increasing the activity of SOD. In addition, GSP increased the number of primary dendrites and total dendritic length per cell.ConclusionTogether with previous findings, these results lend further support to the significance of developing GSP as a therapeutic tool for use in the treatment of alcohol use disorders.

  • Differential Effects of Saikosaponins A, B2, B4, C and D on Alcohol and
           Chocolate Self-Administration in Rats
    • Authors: Maccioni P; Lorrai I, Fara F, et al.
      Pages: 367 - 373
      Abstract: AbstractAimsTreatment with saikosaponin A (SSA)—an ingredient of the medicinal herb, Bupleurum falcatum—has been reported to suppress several addictive-like behaviors, including morphine, cocaine, alcohol and chocolate self-administration in male rats. The aim of this investigation was to investigate whether saikosaponins of B. falcatum other than SSA affect alcohol and chocolate self-administration in rats.MethodsOvariectomized female Sardinian alcohol-preferring (sP) and Wistar rats were trained to self-administer alcohol (15%, v/v) and a chocolate solution [5% (w/v) Nesquik® in water], respectively, under fixed ratio schedules of reinforcement. The following saikosaponins were compared to SSA: saikosaponin D (SSD; epimer of SSA), saikosaponin C (SSC), saikosaponin B2 (SSB2) and saikosaponin B4 (SSB4). All saikosaponins were tested acutely at the doses of 0, 0.25, 0.5 and 1 mg/kg (i.p.).ResultsTreatment with SSA and SSD resulted in highly similar, marked reductions in alcohol self-administration; SSC failed to alter lever-responding for alcohol, while SSB2 and SSB4 produced intermediate reductions. Only SSA and SSD reduced chocolate self-administration, with SSC, SSB2 and SSB4 being ineffective.ConclusionsThe wide spectrum of efficacy of saikosaponins in reducing alcohol and chocolate self-administration suggests that even relatively small structural differences are sufficient to produce remarkable changes in their in vivo pharmacological profile. Together, these results confirm that roots of B. falcatum may be an interesting source of compounds with anti-addictive potential.

  • Psychophysiological Correlates of Emotional- and Alcohol-Related Cues
           Processing in Offspring of Alcohol-Dependent Patients
    • Authors: Dominguez-Centeno I; Jurado-Barba R, Sion A, et al.
      Pages: 374 - 381
      Abstract: AbstractAimsTo determinate if offspring of alcohol-dependent patients (OA) process affective stimuli and alcohol-related cues in a different manner than control subjects do.MethodsEvent-related potentials (early posterior negativity [EPN]/ late positive potential [LPP]) and event-related oscillations (Theta) were obtained by electroencephalographic (EEG) recording during the viewing of International Affective Picture System (IAPS) images with positive, negative and neutral valence, as well as alcohol-related cues. The total sample was comprised of 60 participants, divided into two groups: one group consisted of OA (30) and the control group of participants with negative family history of alcohol use disorders (30).ResultsTheta power analysis implies a significant interaction between condition, region and group factors. Post-hoc analysis indicates an increased theta power for the OA at different regions, during pleasant (frontal, central, parietal, occipital, right temporal); unpleasant (frontal, central, occipital); alcohol (frontal, central, parietal, occipital, right and left temporal) and neutral (occipital) cues. There are no group differences regarding any of the event-related potential measurements (EPN/LPP).ConclusionsThere is evidence of alterations in the processing of affective stimuli and alcohol-related information, evidenced by changes in theta brain oscillations. These alterations are characterized by an increased emotional reactivity, evidenced by increased theta at posterior sites. There is also an increased recruitment of emotion control, which could be a compensation mechanism, evidenced by increased theta power at anterior sites during affective stimuli and alcohol cues.

  • Medical Conditions Linked to Atherosclerosis Are Associated With Magnified
           Cortical Thinning in Individuals With Alcohol Use Disorders
    • Authors: Durazzo T; Nguyen L, Meyerhoff D.
      Pages: 382 - 390
      Abstract: AbstractAimsMagnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies report widespread cortical thinning in individuals with alcohol use disorder (AUD), but did not consider potential effects of pro-atherogenic conditions such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus, hepatitis C seropositivity and hyperlipidemia on cortical thickness. The conditions are associated with regional cortical thinning in those without AUD. We predicted that individuals with concurrent AUD and pro-atherogenic conditions demonstrate the greatest regional cortical thinning in areas most vulnerable to decreased perfusion.MethodsTreatment-seeking individuals with AUD (n = 126) and healthy controls (CON; n = 49) completed a 1.5 T MRI study. Regional cortical thickness was quantitated via FreeSurfer. Individuals with AUD and pro-atherogenic conditions (Atherogenic+), AUD without pro-atherogenic conditions (Atherogenic−) and CON were compared on regional cortical thickness.ResultsIndividuals with AUD showed significant bilateral cortical thinning compared to CON, but Atherogenic+ demonstrated the most widespread and greatest magnitude of regional thinning, while Atherogenic− had reduced thickness primarily in anterior frontal and posterior parietal lobes. Atherogenic+ also showed a thinner cortex than Atherogenic− in lateral orbitofrontal and dorso/dorsolateral frontal cortex, mesial and lateral temporal and inferior parietal regions.ConclusionsOur results demonstrate significant bilateral cortical thinning in individuals with AUD relative to CON, but the distribution and magnitude were influenced by comorbid pro-atherogenic conditions. The magnitude of cortical thinning in Atherogenic+ strongly corresponded to cortical watershed areas susceptible to decreased perfusion, which may result in morphometric abnormalities. The findings indicate that pro-atherogenic conditions may contribute to cortical thinning in those seeking treatment for AUD.

  • Reduced Serum Levels of Cluster of Differentiation 200 in
           Alcohol-Dependent Patients
    • Authors: Chaturvedi A; Rao G, Praharaj S, et al.
      Pages: 391 - 394
      Abstract: AbstractAimChronic alcohol consumption can activate and dysregulate the neuroimmune system which leads to neuroinflammation. Neuroimmune regulatory proteins (NIReg) (e.g. Cluster of Differentiation 200 (CD200)) are the regulators of innate immune response and are responsible for silencing the innate immunity and suppression of inflammation. In this study, we explored the changes of serum levels of CD200 in patients with alcohol dependence at baseline, after one-week alcohol withdrawal and after one-month of alcohol abstinence.MethodsSeventeen patients with alcohol dependence admitted for de-addiction treatment and 12 healthy controls were enrolled in the study. Blood samples were collected at baseline, after one-week, and after one-month, and CD200 levels were measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kit and compared with the healthy controls.ResultsThe serum level of the neuroimmune regulatory protein CD200 in alcohol dependent group (at baseline) was significantly lower compared to healthy controls (p=0.003), and increased after one-week, and one-month period.ConclusionThe present study indicates that decrease of CD200 serum levels in alcohol dependent patients and its rise during alcohol withdrawal and abstinence may provide a preliminary evidence of the role of neuroimmune regulatory proteins in neuroadaptation during alcohol withdrawal.

  • Clinical Competencies for the Care of Hospitalized Patients with Alcohol
           Use Disorders
    • Authors: Phillips T; Porter A, Sinclair J.
      Pages: 395 - 400
      Abstract: AbstractAimsThe UK government aims to develop alcohol care teams (ACTs) that provide care for alcohol dependence in general hospital settings. Service descriptors have been identified to support the development of ACTs. The aim of this study was to use Delphi panel principles to identify the clinical competencies required to provide these elements of service.MethodsWe formed an expert consensus panel of 24 senior clinical alcohol practitioners, leaders and experts by experience drawn from all regions of England. The study was divided into three distinct phases: (a) a review and synthesis of current literature in this area, (b) a face-to-face meeting of the expert panel and (c) subsequent iterations to refine the competencies until consensus was reached.ResultsOur initial search strategy resulted in 555 competency statements being extracted from a range of national clinical professional and occupational standards and other sources. The research team refined these statements to 98 competencies in advance of the expert meeting. The panel identified 14 additional statements and reduced the number of competencies to 78. Subsequent iterations finalized 72 competencies across the 8 service descriptors.ConclusionsDrawing on the existing published resources and clinical experience, the expert panel has provided consensus on the core clinical competencies required for alcohol care teams in caring for hospitalized patients with alcohol use disorders. Whilst it is acknowledged that the range of current provision is variable, these competencies provide a template for clinical practice and the development of multidisciplinary ACTs.

  • Performance of PEth Compared With Other Alcohol Biomarkers in Subjects
           Presenting For Occupational and Pre-Employment Medical Examination
    • Authors: Neumann J; Beck O, Helander A, et al.
      Pages: 401 - 408
      Abstract: AbstractAimsTo compare the performance of short- and long-term alcohol biomarkers for the evaluation of alcohol drinking in employment-related health controls.MethodsThe 519 blood samples originated from 509 patients (80% men) presenting at occupational health units and medical centers at employment agencies for the evaluation of risky drinking. The laboratory investigation comprised the measurement of phosphatidylethanol (PEth 16:0/18:1), carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT; % disialotransferrin), gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), ethanol and ethyl glucuronide (EtG).ResultsMany samples tested positive for acute (57%) and chronic (69%) alcohol biomarkers. PEth was the single most positive biomarker (64%; cut-off 0.05 μmol/l or 35 μg/l) and the only positive chronic biomarker in 100 cases. The highest PEth concentrations were seen in samples positive for all chronic biomarkers, followed by those also being CDT positive (cut-off 2.0%). All 126 CDT-positive samples were positive for PEth using the lower reporting limit (≥0.05 μmol/l) and for 114 cases (90%) also using the higher limit (≥0.30 μmol/l or 210 μg/l). In the CDT-positive cases, the PEth median concentration was 1.71 μmol/l, compared with 0.45 μmol/l for the CDT-negative cases (P < 0.0001). PEth and CDT values were correlated significantly (r = 0.63, P < 0.0001). Among the EtG-positive cases (≥1.0 ng/ml), 95% were also PEth positive, and all ethanol-positive cases (≥0.10 g/l) were also PEth positive.ConclusionsFor optimal detection of drinking habits, using a combination of short- and long-term alcohol biomarkers provided best information. PEth was the single most positive alcohol biomarker, whereas GGT and MCV offered little additional value over PEth and CDT.

      Pages: 409 - 415
      Abstract: AbstractAimsThis study assessed the factor, concurrent and predictive validity of the revised Readiness to Change Questionnaire [Treatment Version] (RCQ[TV]) among non-treatment-seeking individuals.MethodsNon-treatment-seeking patients (Mage = 34.8, SD = 12.4) who screened positive for alcohol misuse were recruited from three urban Level I Trauma Centers and completed the RCQ[TV] (Heather et al. [(1999) Development of a treatment version of the Readiness to Change Questionnaire. Addict Res7, 63–83]).ResultsA confirmatory factor analysis supported the three-factor structure of the RCQ[TV]. Observed scores for precontemplation, contemplation and action demonstrated concurrent validity, as they were correlated with drinking and alcohol-related problems prior to baseline assessment. Finally, RCQ[TV] scores at baseline added to the predictability of an alcohol consumption composite score at a 3-month follow-up after controlling for baseline alcohol consumption and randomization to treatment arm.ConclusionsThe results of the present study suggest that the RCQ[TV] has desirable psychometric properties and supports the use of the RCQ[TV] among non-treatment-seeking patients with alcohol misuse.

  • Inclusion of Cannabis Users in Alcohol Research Samples: Screening In,
           Screening Out, and Implications
    • Authors: Venegas A; Meredith L, Cooper Z, et al.
      Pages: 416 - 423
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundAlcohol and cannabis are frequently co-used, as 20–50% of those who drink alcohol report co-using cannabis. This study is based on the argument that alcohol researchers should enroll cannabis users in human laboratory studies of alcohol use disorder (AUD) to strengthen generalizability. This study examines how heavy drinking cannabis users differ from non-cannabis using heavy drinkers.MethodsIn a community sample of non-treatment-seeking heavy drinkers (n = 551, 35% female), cannabis users were identified through: (a) self-reported cannabis use in the past 6 months and (b) positive urine toxicology test for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Cannabis users, identified as described previously, were compared with non-cannabis users on demographic and clinical characteristics.ResultsThose who endorsed cannabis use in the past 6 months reported more binge drinking days. Participants who tested positive for THC had higher Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test scores and more binge drinking days. Younger age and being a tobacco smoker were associated with an increased likelihood of cannabis use in the past 6 months, whereas male gender and being a tobacco use were associated with a greater likelihood of testing positive for THC. Individuals with cannabis use disorder (CUD) endorsed more depression and anxiety and had higher AUD symptom counts than cannabis users without CUD.ConclusionsThe inclusion of cannabis users in AUD samples allows for increased clinical severity. Excluding cannabis users from AUD studies may limit representativeness and expend unnecessary study resources. Lastly, tobacco use may explain a large portion of the effects of cannabis use on sample characteristics.Short SummaryAlcohol and cannabis are frequently co-used substances. In a sample of non-treatment-seeking heavy drinkers (n = 551, 35% female), cannabis users reported higher alcohol use and higher likelihood of tobacco use than non-cannabis users. Including cannabis users in alcohol research studies will improve representativeness and likely increase clinical severity.

  • Evaluation of Alcohol Industry Action to Reduce the Harmful Use of
           Alcohol: Case Study from Great Britain
    • Authors: Anderson P; Jané Llopis E, Rehm J.
      Pages: 424 - 432
      Abstract: AbstractAimsTo describe a case study in the British market of one of the global beer-producing companies that has set a target to increase the proportion of its products with an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 3.5% or less, and to reduce the mean ABV of its beer products.MethodsDescriptive statistics and time-series analyses using Kantar Worldpanel’s British household purchase data for 2015–2018.ResultsAs assessed by British household purchase data, 15.7% of the company’s beer products had an ABV of 3.5% or less in 2018, compared with 8.8% in 2015. The mean ABV of its beer products dropped from 4.69 in 2015 to 4.55 in 2018. Associated with these changes, the increase in purchased grams of alcohol in all beer that occurred during 2015–2016 (standardized coefficient = 0.007), plateaued during 2017 (standardized coefficient = −0.006) and decreased during 2018 (standardized coefficient = −0.034). Similar findings applied to the purchased grams of alcohol in beer other than ABI beer, suggesting some switching from other beer products to ABI products; and in all alcohol, suggesting, on balance, no overall switching to higher strength products. Greater decreases in purchases were found in the younger age groups, the highest purchasing households in terms of grams of alcohol, class groups D and E, and Scotland; there was no clear pattern by household income.ConclusionsThe proportion of the company’s beer purchased in Great Britain that had an ABV of 3.5% or less increased since the launch of the target, and the mean ABV of its beer products decreased. The changes were associated with reduced purchases of grams of alcohol within its beer products. The associated reductions in purchases of alcohol in all beer and in all alcohol products suggest no evidence of overall switching to other higher strength beer or alcohol products. Other beer-producing companies should undertake similar initiatives. A regulatory tax environment should be introduced to ensure a level-playing field favouring lower alcohol concentration across all beer and other alcohol products.

  • Short- and Longer-Term Benefits of Temporary Alcohol Abstinence During
           ‘Dry January’ Are Not Also Observed Among Adult Drinkers in the
           General Population: Prospective Cohort Study
    • Authors: de Visser R; Piper R.
      Pages: 433 - 438
      Abstract: AbstractAimsThe alcohol abstinence challenge ‘Dry January’ continues to grow, but there is a lack of knowledge of how Dry January participants compare to the general population. There is also a need to determine whether benefits experienced by Dry January participants are unique to that group or are also observed among other people.MethodsWe conducted a prospective cohort study using online questionnaires in early January, February and August 2019. We compared 1192 Dry January participants and 1549 adult drinkers who did not attempt to abstain from alcohol. Key outcomes were self-rated physical health, psychological well-being (Warwick–Edinburgh Mental Well-Being Scale), control over drinking (Drink Refusal Self-Efficacy Scale (DRSE)) and alcohol intake (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test–Consumption (AUDIT-C) subscale). Baseline differences in demographic and alcohol consumption variables were included as covariates in between-group analyses.ResultsDry January participants had higher SES, poorer well-being, higher AUDIT-C scores and less control over their drinking than the general population. Beneficial changes in health, WEMWBS, DRSE and AUDIT-C observed among people completing Dry January were not observed among other adult drinkers.ConclusionsDry January appears to attract people who are heavier drinkers than the general population and who are more concerned about their alcohol intake. Completion of Dry January is associated with short- and longer-term benefits to well-being that are not observed in the general population.

  • Change in the Relationship Between Drinking Alcohol and Risk of Violence
           Among Adolescents and Young Adults: A Nationally Representative
           Longitudinal Study
    • Authors: Jones R; Van Den Bree M, Zammit S, et al.
      Pages: 439 - 447
      Abstract: AbstractAimsTo quantify the relationship between alcohol and violence with increasing age.MethodsData were from The National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (ADD Health) of 20,386 people representative of the US population. Mean age at the first wave of interviews was 16.2 years, with subsequent interviews mean of 1, 6.3 and 12.9 years later. We used random-effects models and predictive marginal effects of the association between varying quantities of alcohol consumption and violence while controlling for possible confounders.ResultsViolence was reported by 19.1% of participants at wave I but just 2.1% at wave IV. The random-effects model showed that consuming 1–4 drinks on each occasion was associated with a modest increase in risk of violence in both males (odds ratio (OR) 1.36, 95% CI 1.13–1.63) and females (OR 1.33, 95% CI 1.03–1.72). For consumption of five or more drinks on each occasion, the risk remained similar for females (OR 1.40 (0.99–1.97)) but increased considerably for males (OR 2.41 (1.96–2.95)). Predictive marginal effects models confirmed that violence rates decreased with age.ConclusionsAlcohol is most strongly linked to violence among adolescents, so programmes for primary prevention of alcohol-related violence are best targeted towards this age group, particularly males who engage in heavy episodic drinking.

  • Alcohol Consumption by Older New York City Residents: The Need for New
           Policies to Address Misuse
    • Authors: Weisz D; Gusmano M.
      Pages: 448 - 454
      Abstract: AbstractAimsThe aim of this study is to assess risk factors for alcohol misuse among older New York City residents and examine the effect of local public health efforts to address alcohol misuse.MethodsThe Community Health Survey, a cross-sectional telephone survey of 8500 randomly selected adult New Yorkers, records the frequency of alcohol use. We examine these results among 65 and older subjects by sociodemographic status using logistic regression modeling and compare trends in smoking and alcohol consumption between 2002 and 2016.ResultsThose with unhealthy drinking habits, combining binge drinking and excessive consumption, constituted 5.7% of 65 plus population and were more likely to be White, US born, healthy, better educated and wealthier. The percentage of older smokers in New York City has decreased while unhealthy drinking is nearly flat since 2002.ConclusionsOur findings reinforce the importance of screening geriatric populations for alcohol use disorders and support the development of new public health efforts to address alcohol misuse if the city is to achieve results similar to those obtained in decreasing tobacco consumption.

  • Different Associations Between Alcohol Use Disorders and Psychotic
           Symptoms According to Underlying Psychiatric Disorders: The Need for
           Replication Studies
    • Authors: Pignon B; Sescousse G, Rolland B.
      Pages: 455 - 455
      Abstract: We appreciate the initiative by Oh (2020), who performed a replication study of our recent publication (Pignon et al., 2019), in which we compared the prevalence of psychotic symptoms among subjects with different types of psychiatric disorders, i.e. depression or bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, psychotic disorders or no psychiatric disorder, as function of whether or not there was an underlying alcohol use disorder (AUD). Our results showed that AUD was associated with all psychotic symptoms in the samples of subjects with depression and anxiety disorders, but with only auditory hallucinations in the sample of subjects with bipolar disorder, and only with thought broadcasting in the sample of subjects with psychotic disorders.
