[Severity of Alcohol Dependence Questionnaire: Validity and Reliability of the Turkish Version]. Turk Psikiyatri Derg. 2018;29(3):202-208 Authors: Akyel B, Aldemir E, Altıntoprak AE Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study is to determine the validity and reliability of Turkish version of Severity of Alcohol Dependence Questionnaire (SADQ) developed by Tim Stockwell and colleagues in 1983 for the purpose of evaluating the severity of dependence in people with alcohol use disorder. METHOD: The present study was conducted with an adult sample of 200 participants with alcohol use disorder according to DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) who applied to Ege University Institute on Drug Abuse, Toxicology and Pharmaceutical Science. Regarding validity analysis, item-total score correlation coefficients and principal component analysis were calculated. The scale was compared with Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test (MAST). Reliability analysis was performed with internal consistency reliability and test-retest reliability. RESULTS: Considering the internal consistency reliability of scale, Cronbach's Alpha Reliability Coefficient was found to be α=0.914. Item and Total Score Correlation Coefficients of the scale items were found between 0.309 and 0.730 (p

This systematic review, following PRISMA guidelines, encompasses all human studies using eye tracking in participants presenting acute alcohol consumption. A literature search was conducted in PsycINFO, PubMed and Scopu...

Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy analysis indicated that CR and ATH were successfully immobilized into the film-forming substrate based on starch, polyvinyl alcohol (SPVA) and glycerol. The incorporation of different natural dyes had no significant effect on moisture content, water solubility, wa...

This study investigated the effects of pasture on nutritional characteristics and volatile components of sheep's milk, yoghurt and cheese produced in central Italy. During two grazing seasons (winter and spring) aliquots of fodder, yoghurt, fresh cheese and the corresponding ripened cheese were taken and analysed in relation to nutritional composition and volatile compounds. The grazing season influenced the chemical composition of the sheep's milk and dairy products, giving the cheese from the spring pasture a significantly higher dry matter content (61.26% vs 52.85%). Spring dairy products were also significantly higher ...

CONCLUSIONS: These results demonstrate that overall adherence to medication-assisted treatment for alcohol use disorder is low across all medications. When directly compared, disulfiram had significantly lower adherence than both oral and extended-release injectable naltrexone. PMID: 31603760 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: The final measurement model provided support for construct validity of a novel alcohol marketing recall construct assessing cumulative cross-channel marketing exposure. Adolescent recall of alcohol marketing across channels was significantly associated with underage drinking, while associated factors such as peer/parental drinking were accounted for.
