  • Role of TLR4 in the Modulation of Central Amygdala GABA Transmission by
           CRF Following Restraint Stress
    • Authors: Varodayan F; Khom S, Patel R, et al.
      Pages: 642 - 649
      Abstract: AimsStress induces neuroimmune responses via Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) activation. Here, we investigated the role of TLR4 in the effects of the stress peptide corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) on GABAergic transmission in the central nucleus of the amygdala (CeA) following restraint stress.MethodsTlr4 knock out (KO) and wild-type rats were exposed to no stress (naïve), a single restraint stress (1 h) or repeated restraint stress (1 h per day for 3 consecutive days). After 1 h recovery from the final stress session, whole-cell patch-clamp electrophysiology was used to investigate the effects of CRF (200 nM) on CeA GABAA-mediated spontaneous inhibitory postsynaptic currents (sIPSCs).ResultsTLR4 does not regulate baseline GABAergic transmission in the CeA of naive and stress-treated animals. However, CRF significantly increased the mean sIPSC frequencies (indicating enhanced GABA release) across all genotypes and stress treatments, except for the Tlr4 KO rats that experienced repeated restraint stress.ConclusionsOverall, our results suggest a limited role for TLR4 in CRF’s modulation of CeA GABAergic synapses in naïve and single stress rats, though TLR4-deficient rats that experienced repeated psychological stress exhibit a blunted CRF cellular response.Short SummaryTLR4 has a limited role in CRF’s activation of the CeA under basal conditions, but interacts with the CRF system to regulate GABAergic synapse function in animals that experience repeated psychological stress.

  • Interactions between TLR4 methylation and alcohol consumption on
           subjective responses to an alcohol infusion
    • Authors: Karoly H; Ellingson J, Hutchison K.
      Pages: 650 - 658
      Abstract: AimsConverging evidence has implicated perturbed inflammatory signaling in alcohol use disorders (AUDs), and both animal and human studies suggest that alcohol-induced inflammatory signaling is mediated by Toll-Like Receptor 4 (TLR4). We previously demonstrated that TLR4 is hypermethylated in subjects with AUD compared to control individuals. Examining the relationship between TLR4 methylation and subjective alcohol responses could shed light on the role of TLR4 in promoting AUDs, thereby highlighting its potential as a treatment target.Short summarySignificant interactions were demonstrated between Toll-like Receptor 4 (TLR4) methylation and human alcohol consumption patterns, such that greater methylation was associated with decreased positive and negative self-reported arousal during an alcohol infusion among light-to-moderate drinkers, but increased self-reported positive arousal and physiological arousal (i.e. systolic blood pressure) among heavy drinkers.MethodsLatent growth models were used to examine the relationship between TLR4 methylation and subjective responses and physiological measures of arousal during an alcohol infusion across 222 drinkers.ResultsWe observed significant interactions of TLR4 methylation and alcohol use (drinks per week) on intercepts for self-report and physiological arousal measures. Specifically, light-to-moderate drinkers had positive associations between methylation and stimulation and tension (r's = 0.21–0.24), and heavy drinkers had negative associations (r's = −0.15 to −0.21). There were also significant interaction effects on changes in tension (β = 0.31, P < 0.01), systolic blood pressure (β = 0.74, P < 0.01) and marginal effects on stimulation (β = 0.15, P = 0.07) during the infusion, such that methylation was associated with decreased arousal among light-to-moderate drinkers (r's = −0.12 to −0.25) but stable or increased arousal among heavy drinkers (r's = 0.05–0.19).ConclusionsFindings suggest that the relationship between TLR4 methylation and subjective and physiological arousal during acute alcohol intoxication depends upon on self-reported alcohol use. These data demonstrate the influence of TLR4 on subjective responses to alcohol, thereby supporting the need for further research on its potential as a pharmacological treatment target.

      Abstract: AimTo examine dual trajectories of anxiety/depression symptoms and alcohol use among drug-using youth seeking care from an urban emergency department (ED), their baseline correlates and co-occurring trajectories of severe violence.Short summaryThere were five characteristic dual trajectories of alcohol use and depression/anxiety symptoms. Community violence exposure was highest among individuals with high-depression/anxiety symptom trajectories. Individuals with concurrently high-alcohol use and depression/anxiety symptom trajectories reported that the most delinquent peer affiliations, and had the highest rates of severe violence over time.MethodsWe analyzed data from 599 drug-using (primarily marijuana) youth ages 14–24 (349 assault-injured) recruited from December 2009 to September 2011 into a 24-month longitudinal study at a Level-1 ED in Flint, Michigan. Youth self-reported substance use, depression and anxiety symptoms, peer/parental behaviors, and severe violence involvement at baseline and four biannual follow-up assessments. Bivariate latent trajectory models identified homogeneous groups with similar trajectories on alcohol use and anxiety/depression symptoms; we compared baseline characteristics of each trajectory group and concurrent trajectories of severe violence (victimization and aggression).ResultsOur model identified five trajectory groups: Low drinking/No symptoms (LN; 10.4%; n = 62), No drinking/Moderate symptoms (NM; 15.7%; n = 94), Low drinking/Moderate symptoms (LM; 30.2%; n = 181), Low drinking/High symptoms (LH; 16.4%; n = 98) and High drinking/High symptoms (HH; 27.5%; n = 164). The HH group was characterized by more delinquent peer associations, and rates of community violence were higher among the high symptom groups. The HH group had the highest severe violence perpetration and victimization rates across time points; the LH group had similar violence rates to the LM and NM groups and the LN group had the lowest violence rates across time.ConclusionsAmong drug-using youth, alcohol use interventions could benefit from a focus on peer influences, and those with a joint focus on violence involvement may be improved via inclusion of content related to mental health and community violence exposure.

  • Seeking Help for Harm from Others’ Drinking in Five Asian Countries:
           Variation Between Societies, by Type of Harm and by Source of Help
    • Authors: Waleewong O; Laslett A, Chenhall R, et al.
      Pages: 667 - 673
      Abstract: AimsThis study aims to measure the prevalence rates and patterns of help-seeking behavior as a consequence of being harmed by drinkers in five Asian countries (India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Lao PDR and Thailand).MethodsA total of 9832 respondents aged 18–65 years from the WHO/ThaiHealth Collaborative Project were surveyed between 2012 and 2014 about their experiences of being negatively affected due to another’s drinking, and whether and where they sought help, focusing on four adverse aspects of harms from others’ drinking.ResultsThe prevalence of seeking help from any source in the past year due to harm from others’ drinking ranged from 7% to 20%. The most common service used by those who were affected by other people’s drinking was asking for help from friends, followed by calling the police and using health-related services. The largest proportion of help-seeking was among those reporting property harm, followed by those being harmed physically and sexually by drinkers.ConclusionGiven a wide range of harms from others’ drinking in the general population and different needs of those affected, prevalence rates for help-seeking behavior due to others’ drinking in South and South East Asian countries were low and the help sought was often informal. There is a large knowledge gap in our understanding of the mechanisms of help-seeking behavior and the pathways for access to help among those affected. Further studies are important for enhancing the social response services available and making these more accessible to those who need help.

  • Sex Differences in the Association between Heavy Drinking and Behavioral
           Distress Tolerance and Emotional Reactivity Among Non-Depressed College
           Students
    • Authors: Pedrelli P; MacPherson L, Khan A, et al.
      Pages: 674 - 681
      Abstract: BackgroundHeavy episodic drinking (HED) is a common behavior among college students that is associated with severe negative consequences. Negative reinforcement processes have been applied to elucidate mechanisms underlying relationships between consumption of alcohol and the desire to alleviate negative feelings. Distress tolerance (DT) and emotional reactivity are two mechanisms that are consistent with the self-medication model that may contribute to HED. The current study investigated relationships between DT, emotional reactivity, defined as frustration reactivity and irritability reactivity, and HED in a non-depressed college population. Given differential patterns of consumption and motivation for drinking between males and females, sex differences were also examined.Short SummaryThe study examined two constructs consistent with negative reinforcement processes, behavioral distress tolerance (DT) and emotional reactivity (frustration reactivity and irritability reactivity), to explain heavy episodic drinking (HED) among non-depressed college students. Behavioral DT and frustration reactivity independently predicted HED. Higher HED was associated with higher frustration reactivity and lower behavioral DT in women, but nor in men.MethodsOne-hundred-ten college students without depressive symptoms completed alcohol use measures and the Paced Auditory Serial Attention Task (PASAT-C) to assess behavioral DT and emotional reactivity.ResultsDT and frustration reactivity independently predicted HED. The association between DT and HED was moderated by sex such that higher levels of DT predicted higher HED among females, but not among males. Higher frustration reactivity scores were associated with a greater number of HED.ConclusionsResults provide supporting evidence that DT and emotional reactivity are distinct factors, and that they predict HED independently. Results underscore the importance of examining sex differences when evaluating the association between HED and negative reinforcement processes in this population.

  • Maladaptive Schemas Among People Addicted to Alcohol: Heterogeneity but
           not Specificity'
    • Authors: Chodkiewicz J; Gruszczyńska E.
      Pages: 682 - 687
      Abstract: AimsEarly maladaptive schemas described by Young theoretically underlie the development of psychopathology, including substance use. The key assumption is that the schemas do not act in isolation but create configurations that are, at least to a certain extent, distinctive for specific disorders. Thus, the aim of the current study was to examine whether a schema profile specific to alcohol addiction can be identified when compared to profiles obtained from a non-clinical sample.Short SummaryEarly maladaptive schemas are cognitive and behavioral patterns related to a wide spectrum of psychopathology, including alcohol addiction. However, the assumption that the configuration of schemas varies across disorders still needs verification. In the sample of alcohol-addicted people, only heterogeneity was noted, without any specific profile that may differentiate them from healthy adults.MethodsThe study included two samples: 108 alcohol-dependent patients beginning stationary treatment and 1529 healthy adults. All participants completed the Young Schema Questionnaire-Short Form 3 (YSQ-S3).ResultsMultiple-group latent profile analysis was used to compare clinical and non-clinical sample profiles. In both groups, four profiles were identified. These were similar in terms of schema means and variances across groups, differing only in size. Specifically, people addicted to alcohol were over-represented in the highest profile and under-represented in the lowest profile. Also, the only distinguishable difference between profiles was their height, not shape.ConclusionThe findings indicate a heterogeneity but not specificity of maladaptive schema profiles within the studied sample of people addicted to alcohol.

  • Can the Impact of Topiramate on Memory Processes be Related to Its
           ‘Antialcoholic Activity’'—A Preclinical Study
    • Authors: Zwierzyńska E; Krupa-Burtnik A, Wiesner A, et al.
      Pages: 688 - 698
      Abstract: AimsTopiramate causes the inhibition of alcohol consumption in addicts but the mechanism of this action has not been fully understood yet. Nowadays, it seems that memory may have a role in the development of dependence. In this study, the impact of topiramate and ethanol on the bioelectric activity of the brain in rabbits and on spatial memory in rats was evaluated.Short summaryThe aim of the study was to assess the effect of co-administration of topiramate and ethanol on bioelectric activity of the rabbits’ brain and on spatial memory in rats. Topiramate decreased ethanol-induced changes in all studied brain structures and improved memory and learning processes.MethodsA pharmaco-electroencephalography study was used to examine the effect of topiramate (25 mg/kg/day) co-administered for 6 weeks with ethanol on the bioelectric activity of the rabbits’ brain. The influence of the drug was also assessed in first and second weeks of the abstinence period. Spatial memory was evaluated in rats using Morris water maze task. Topiramate (60 mg/kg/day) was administered with the ethanol for 3 weeks and for 2 weeks in the abstinence.ResultsAfter 6 weeks of topiramate and ethanol administration, the drug decreased ethanol-induced changes in the midbrain reticular formation, hippocampus and frontal cortex. In the abstinence, the drug also inhibited the features of neuronal hyperactivity, especially in the hippocampus. Moreover, topiramate co-administered with ethanol for 3 weeks decreased ethanol-induced memory disturbance in rats. This beneficial effect was also observed in the second week of abstinence.ConclusionThese findings reveal that ‘antialcoholic’ activity of topiramate may be associated with its advantageous effect on memory and learning processes.

  • P3 Component as a Potential Endophenotype for Control Inhibition in
           Offspring of Alcoholics
    • Authors: Domínguez-Centeno I; Jurado-Barba R, Sion A, et al.
      Pages: 699 - 706
      Abstract: AimsTo assess inhibitory processes and the ongoing event-related potential (ERP) activity of offspring of alcoholics (OA) during a Go/No-Go task, with the purpose of characterizing possible psychophysiological endophenotypes for alcohol-dependent vulnerability.Short summaryEEG recordings and ERP measurements of young adults with positive and negative family history of alcoholism where obtained while they performed a Go/No-Go task to assess inhibitory processes. Offspring of alcoholics showed a different ERP pattern compared to the control group and exerted greater effort than the control group.MethodsERP measurements were obtained by electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings of 65 participants divided into two groups: one group of 30 subjects with positive family history of alcoholism and a control group of 35 subjects with negative family history of alcoholism. They performed a Go/No-Go task, where each individual was required to classify visual stimuli by colour (Go) and inhibit their response to a No-Go signal.ResultsOA have higher P3 amplitudes during the Go condition in all of the regions analysed and higher No-Go P3 amplitudes than control subjects in the frontal region. Unlike controls, OA have no differences between the P3 amplitudes across conditions.ConclusionsThe absence of differences between the P3 Go and No-Go observed in the OA group can be interpreted as a possible alteration related with inhibition, in a way that they may need to recruit similar resources for inhibitory and classificational processes for both conditions. Therefore, the P3 component may be considered as a useful endophenotype and a vulnerability marker to develop addictive behaviour.

  • Women’s Self-Perceived Similarity to Their Mother and Associations with
           Patterns of Alcohol Misuse over 20 Years
    • Authors: Talley A; Hughes M, Wilsnack S, et al.
      Pages: 707 - 715
      Abstract: AimsThis study examined transgenerational transmission of risk for female alcohol misuse. Women’s perceived similarity to their mother/father in adulthood was examined in terms of its influence on the expected association between perceived maternal alcohol use and female offsprings’ trajectories of alcohol misuse. We hypothesized that a daughter’s self-perceived similarity to her mother, in instances where her mother was perceived to be a frequent- or problem-drinker, would be associated with an increase in the daughter’s count of negative consequences from alcohol use and potential symptoms of alcohol dependence across adulthood.Short summaryWomen’s perceived similarity to their mother/father was examined as a factor influencing associations between perceived parental alcohol use during childhood and patterns of alcohol misuse in adulthood. Women’s self-perceived similarity to their frequent- or problem-drinking mothers increased the risk of negative consequences from drinking over time as well as potential symptoms of alcohol dependence over time.MethodsAnalyses utilized data from a survey of women (N = 911) who were followed over a 20-year period, beginning in 1981. Women, ages 21 or older and living in households in the contiguous USA, were eligible, and women who consumed four or more alcoholic drinks per week were oversampled. Model estimates were weighted to adjust for the oversampling of heavier drinking women and to reflect national demographics. Latent growth mixture models estimated regression parameters that captured variation in participants’ alcohol misuse over time.ResultsWomen who reported that their mother was a frequent- or problem-drinker and who perceived themselves to be similar to their mother, in general, showed increases in alcohol misuse. The same pattern of results was not shown for fathers.ConclusionsResults support that interventions seeking to reduce female alcohol misuse should address the role of perceived similarity to heavy-drinking female role models or ‘female-drinker’ prototypes to reduce problem-drinking behavior among female drinkers.

      Abstract: Liver transplantation is lifesaving for patients with severe acute alcoholic hepatitis (SAH) with preliminary data demonstrating favorable early post-transplant outcomes. Using the United Network for Organ Sharing database, we demonstrate that liver transplantation for SAH in the USA has steadily increased and is associated with similar 1- and 3-year post-transplant survival as well as comparable 30-day waitlist mortality to acute liver failure due to drug-induced liver injury.

  • Integrated Treatment at the First Stage: Increasing Motivation for Alcohol
           Patients with Comorbid Disorders during Inpatient Detoxification
    • Authors: Ostergaard M; Jatzkowski L, Seitz R, et al.
      Pages: 719 - 727
      Abstract: AimsCo-occurring mental disorders can complicate the detoxification treatment process and outcome. The aim of this study is to examine whether a brief psychoeducational group counseling session during detoxification treatment can increase the motivation for and utilization of subsequent treatments.Short summaryInterventions increased utilization of post-detoxification treatment and reduced alcohol-related readmissions. Higher depression or trauma scores were associated with higher rates of utilization of treatment.MethodsPatients received either a brief manualised group intervention on the interrelation of alcohol use disorder (AUD) and major depression (MD) or AUD and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or a cognitive training session (control group). Of the 784 patients treated in the study period, 171 participants were quasi-randomly allocated to groups. Self-reported motivation was measured before and after intervention, transition into AUD treatment and readmissions were collected after detoxification treatment.ResultsParticipating in any of the intervention groups increased the utilization of AUD treatment after inpatient detoxification (χ2 = 6.15, P = 0.02) and decreased readmissions 6 months after discharge (χ2 = 7.46, P = 0.01). Depression and trauma scores moderated the effect: associations with the utilization of post-detoxification treatment were found in participants with higher depression (OR = 5.84, 95% CI = 1.17–29.04) or trauma scores (OR = 10.17, 95% CI = 1.54–67.1).ConclusionsAn integrated intervention approach for dual diagnosis at the beginning of the treatment can increase motivation for continued AUD treatment. Especially affected dual diagnosis patients can benefit from this treatment.

  • Brief Intervention Among Mexican-Origin Young Adults in the Emergency
           Department at the USA–Mexico Border: Examining the Role of Patient’s
           Preferred Language of Intervention in Predicting Drinking Outcomes†
    • Authors: Oviedo Ramirez S; Alvarez M, Field C, et al.
      Pages: 728 - 734
      Abstract: AimsDetermine if the language in which brief intervention (BI) is delivered influences drinking outcomes among Mexican-origin young adults in the emergency department when controlling for ethnic matching.Short SummaryAim of study was to determine if a patient’s preferred language of intervention influences drinking outcomes among Mexican-origin young adults in the emergency department. Results indicate no significant differences in drinking outcomes among those who received BI in Spanish and BI in English.MethodsThis is a secondary data analysis on data from 310 patients randomized to receive a BI completed in Spanish (BI-S) or English (BI-E), with 3- and 12-month follow-up. Outcome measures of interest were drinking days per week, drinks per drinking day, maximum drinks in a day and negative consequences of drinking.ResultsThere were no significant differences in drinking outcomes among those who received BI in Spanish and BI in English.ConclusionsReduced drinking outcomes following BI among Mexican-origin young adults in the emergency department may not have been due to the language used to deliver intervention. Thus, our results provide evidence that language of intervention is not a crucial factor to achieve cultural congruence. In addition, our findings suggest that receiving the intervention is beneficial regardless of language, thus, facilitating real-world implementation.

  • The Dangerous Pattern of Concurrent Use of Alcohol and Cocaine Among
           Drunk-Drivers of Northeast Italy
    • Authors: Snenghi R; Pelletti G, Frigo A, et al.
      Pages: 735 - 741
      Abstract: AimTo estimate the prevalence of drug and polydrug use among drunk-drivers during the driving license regranting program, in order to assess the inclusion of toxicological tests on hair and urine samples in the systematic methodology in this category of subjects.Short summaryA total of 2160 drunk-drivers were tested for alcohol and drugs during driving license regranting. Thirty-one subjects showed alcohol use, 212 illicit drug use and, among these, 131 were polydrug users. Nineteen different patterns of drug and polydrug use were found. Cocaine was detected in 165 subjects.MethodsThe study was performed on 2160 drunk-drivers examined at Legal Medicine and Toxicology Unit of the University of Padova, in a 3-year-period (2014–2017). The positivity for one or more illicit drugs in hair or urine samples was confirmed by LC/MS and GC/MS methods. Chi-square test, Fischer’s exact test and Cochran–Armitage Trend test were used to study the correlation between general characteristics of the examined sample and the presence of drug/polydrug use.ResultsThirty-one subjects showed alcohol use, 212 illicit drug use and, among these, 131 were polydrug users. Nineteen different patterns of drug and polydrug use were found. Cocaine was detected in 165 subjects in whom 122 showed a concurrent use of alcohol and cocaine, identified through the detection of cocaethylene in hair samples. No significant association and/or trends between drug/polydrug use and the general characteristics of the sample were detected.ConclusionsThe results show that drug and polydrug use among drunk-drivers should be subjected to toxicological as well as alcohological monitoring, especially in the regranting procedure. The implementation of this procedure could improve the knowledge of dimensions of the issue, providing a powerful means for the reduction of phenomenon of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

  • Distilled Spirits Overconsumption as the Most Important Factor of
           Excessive Adult Male Mortality in Europe
    • Authors: Korotayev A; Khaltourina D, Meshcherina K, et al.
      Pages: 742 - 752
      Abstract: AimsTo explain comprehensively variations in adult male mortality rate in Europe, and in particular, high mortality in some East European countries with particular focus on specific patterns of alcohol consumption.Short summaryPer capita distilled spirits consumption is found to be the strongest determinant of the adult male mortality rate in Europe as soon as the unrecorded alcohol consumption is taken into account. It turns out to be much stronger than the other tested significant determinants such as per capita health expenditures, smoking prevalence, consumption of hard drugs and per capita consumption of vegetables and fruit.MethodsOrdinary least squares (OLS) multiple regression with adult male mortality rate as a dependent variable, and various indicators of alcohol and drug consumption as well as logarithm of gross domestic product (GDP) per capita, logarithm of total per capita health expenditures, latitude (climatic factors), per capita fruit and vegetable consumption, smoking prevalence as independent factors.ResultsPer capita distilled spirits consumption turns out to be the strongest determinant of the adult male mortality rate in Europe as soon as the unrecorded alcohol consumption is taken into account. It turns out to be much stronger than the other tested significant determinants of the adult male mortality rate such as per capita health expenditures, smoking prevalence, consumption of hard drugs and per capita consumption of vegetables and fruit. Still, higher per capita wine consumption has turned out to be a marginally significant determinant of the higher adult male mortality rate in some tests. Latitude, beer and soft drug consumption have turned out insignificant in this study.ConclusionsSpirits consumption is a major risk factor of adult male mortality, with significantly greater impact compared to beer and wine. Therefore, reduction in distilled spirits consumption in hard liquor drinking areas should be a major target in health policy.

  • Fathers’ Alcohol Consumption and Long-Term Risk for Mortality in
           Offspring
    • Authors: Landberg J; Danielsson A, Falkstedt D, et al.
      Pages: 753 - 759
      Abstract: AimThis study examined associations between fathers’ alcohol consumption and risk for total and cause-specific mortality in offspring.Short summaryWe examined the associations between fathers’ alcohol consumption and total and cause-specific mortality in adult offspring. Fathers’ alcohol consumption was associated with increased risk of alcohol-related mortality in offspring. The association appeared to be weaker for causes of death in which alcohol plays a smaller, or less direct, role.MethodsData on fathers’ alcohol consumption, and offspring’s risky use of alcohol, smoking, mental health and contact with police/childcare authorities were collected among 46,284 men (sons) aged 18–20 years, during conscription for compulsory military training in 1969/70. Data on offspring mortality were obtained from the National Cause of Death register, 1971–2008. The mortality outcomes included total mortality, alcohol-related causes of death and violent causes of death (categorized into suicides vs violent/external causes excluding suicides).ResultsCompared to sons whose fathers never used alcohol, the risk for total and alcohol-related mortality among sons increased with the father’s consumption level. The risk of violent death was significantly elevated among sons whose fathers drank alcohol occasionally or often, but the risk of suicide increased in the highest consumption category only. After adjustment for covariates, the results remained for alcohol-related mortality whereas they were significantly attenuated, or disappeared, for total mortality, violent death and suicide.ConclusionsFathers’ alcohol consumption is associated with increased risk of alcohol-related mortality in the offspring. Alcohol use among fathers also increases the offspring’s risk of later total mortality, suicide and violent death, but these associations appear to be mediated or confounded by factors related to parental drinking and/or adverse childhood psychosocial circumstances.
