Subjective and Physiological Effects of Alcohol: Role of Genetic Variation and Adrenal Hormones.
Clinical Trial ( IRB ) #: 06-218S-2
Title: Subjective and Physiological Effects of Alcohol: Role of Genetic Variation and Adrenal Hormones.
Principal Investigator: Dr. Jonathan Covault
Description: Alcohol abuse and dependence remain important public health problems. Inherited (e.g. genetic) risk factors are thought to be important in the development of alcohol use problems. This is a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study that employs a human laboratory paradigm to study the moderating effect of genetic variations in several candidate genes and the role of alcohol induced neuroactive steroids on subjective and physiological effects of alcohol when consumed by light drinkers compared to heavy drinkers.
Classification:
  Addiction/Substance Abuse
  Inherited/Congenital/Genetic
Eligibility Criteria: 21 Years to 45 Years, Male who consumes alcohol at least 3 times a week.
