Example text

These phenotypes and genes are the subject of this chapter. This survey of progress up to the end of 1999 will cover four areas. Two relate phenotype to risk, and two relate genotype to the intermediate phenotypes and thence to dependence risk: (1) alcohol sensitivity and dependence risk; (2) alcohol metabolism and dependence risk; (3) genetic polymorphisms in alcohol sensitivity genes, and their effects on dependence risk; and (4) genetic polymorphisms in alcohol metabolism genes, and their effects on dependence risk.

This covers the subjects’ experiences when they first began to use alcohol, during their period of heaviest alcohol use, and currently. The questionnaire results have been compared retrospectively with data collected at the time of alcohol testing (15 years previously) in 94 of the men in the FHP/FHN studies, Genes for Metabolism and Sensitivity 37 and with alcohol dependence diagnosis in 551 subjects interviewed as part of the COGA study (26). There were highly significant associations between SRE scores and subjective ‘‘high’’ results after alcohol, and between SRE scores and alcohol dependence diagnosis, but the sensitivity and specificity of SRE in predicting response or dependence for any individual were only moderate.
