Clinical Intervention in Alcohol Use Disorder

The relapsing nature of alcoholism is a major obstacle to successful treatment. About 60% of those entering treatment will relapse within one year. To improve treatment outcome, new interventions targeting the underlying brain biomarkers of relapse vulnerability hold significant promise in reducing this critical public health problem. Using resting functional ...

Clinical Medication Development for Bipolar Disorder and Alcohol Use Disorders

A 12-week, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled adaptive, Drop The Loser (DTL) design clinical trial of citicoline and pregnenolone will be conducted in 199 outpatients with bipolar I or II disorder or schizoaffective disorder (bipolar type) and current alcohol use disorder. Potential participants will be identified and an appointment will be ...

Testing Doxazosin to Treat Stress Mechanisms in Alcoholism

OBJECTIVES To translate the preclinical evidence from animal models to stress-induced relapse in humans via direct pharmacological antagonism of the noradrenergic system in abstinent alcoholics with doxazosin, an alpha1 noradrenergic receptor blocker. To screen the efficacy of doxazosin to target stress-related relapse mechanisms in abstinent alcoholics as a cost-effective first ...

Imaging GABAergic/Glutamatergic Drugs in Bipolar Alcoholics Alcoholics

Bipolar disorder (BD) is the Axis I psychiatric condition most strongly associated with substance use disorder (SUD); diagnostic co-occurrence is particularly high between BD and alcohol use disorder (AUD). Individuals with co-occurring SUD and BD (SUD+BD) have substantially worse clinical outcomes than those with either BD or SUD alone. Nonetheless, ...

Abuse Liability of Reduced Nicotine Content Cigarettes Within a Complex Tobacco Marketplace

Tobacco regulatory policies can have unanticipated consequences; therefore, methods that would permit prospective estimates of the effects of potential tobacco regulations are necessary for the development of tobacco regulatory science. The goal of this project is to experimentally assess how smokers purchase and consume reduced-nicotine cigarettes. In experiment 1, we ...

Phase N/A

Gut Hormones in Obesity Nicotine and Alcohol Dependence

Obesity, smoking and alcohol dependence are major health burdens to society. Relapse after alcohol and smoking abstinence is common despite the use of combined behavioural support and current limited available medications. In obesity, nonsurgical interventions have also been disappointing in achieving longterm weight loss. Therefore, there is a pressing need ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Cortical Dopamine Regulation on Drinking Craving and Cognitive Control

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitor tolcapone, relative to placebo, reduces alcohol drinking and alcohol cue-elicited brain activation and increases brain activation associated with cognitive control as a function of a participant's genotype at a polymorphism in the COMT gene.
