Background Moderate alcohol consumption is associated with reduced risk for coronary heart disease. This may due, in part to increased fibrinolysis. Monocytes synthesize fibrinolytic proteins, tissue plasminogen activator (t‐PA), urokinase plasminogen activator (u‐PA), and their receptors. These...
Background Rats with streptozotocin (STZ)‐induced diabetes exhibit alterations in cardiac function, ventricular remodeling, and changes in cell signaling, which includes protein kinase C (PKC) isoforms. Moderate consumption of ethanol has a beneficial effect on cardiovascular outcomes in the...
Background Alcohol consumption is associated with high levels of high‐density lipoproteins (HDLs). Moreover, changes in the fatty acid patterns of red blood cell phospholipids and plasma lipids have been observed in drinkers. The objectives of this study were to characterize the composition of...
Background The septo‐hippocampal cholinergic pathway has been implicated in epileptogenesis, and genetic factors influence the response to cholinergic agents, but limited data are available on cholinergic involvement in alcohol withdrawal severity. Thus, the relationship between cholinergic...
Background Disturbances in sleep patterns are a complicating factor in recovery from alcoholism. The effects of acute and chronic alcohol treatments on sleep in rats were determined.
Background Autonomic and behavioral arousals often accompany reinforcement. Additionally, contextual cues associated with alcohol consumption elicit increases in heart rate in alcoholics. This study examined changes in heart rate (HR) and motor activity before and during limited‐access to...
Background Genetic and environmental factors, such as stress, are important for the initiation and maintenance of heavy drinking, whereas β‐endorphin may be important in controlling alcohol consumption. These studies investigated the response of pituitary β‐endorphin to stress and the effect of...
Background Calcium channel blockers prevent the development of tolerance to ethanol and prevent seizures and other signs of ethanol withdrawal. Calcium channels may also mediate the development of tolerance to the antinociceptive effects of ethanol.
Background The association between antisocial behavior and alcohol problems is well established, but the role that psychopathic traits and other factors such as drinking patterns and motives and family history play in this relationship has not been subjected to much empirical scrutiny.
Background Alcoholics have impaired cortisol response to stress, indicating dysregulation in the extrahypothalamic systems responsible for activating cortisol secretion in response to stressor exposure. There is a growing literature indicating a relationship between...
