Thiamin and alcohol use disorder: A national survey of practice.

[Thiamin and alcohol use disorder: A national survey of practice]. Therapie. 2019 Sep 09;: Authors: Collet L, Bisch M, Viennet S, Schwan R, Paille F Abstract OBJECTIVE: The survey aimed to estimate, in the presence of alcohol use disorder, the frequency of systematic prescription of thiamine, the factors associated with it, and those related to the administration (oral, intravenous, intramuscular) when Wernicke's encephalopathy is suspected. METHODS: A self-questionnaire available on Internet was sent by e-mail to doctors and nurses taking care patients with alcohol use disorder. RESULTS: In all, 565 professionals responded. The systematic prescription frequency of thiamine was 84.8 %, addiction care centers and medical-psychological centers prescribed it 5 times less than in psychiatric hospitals (OR=0.2 IC [0.1-0.5] P

An efficient surface engineering strategy is proposed to significantly promote the electric conductivity, Zn ion diffusion rate, and cycling stability of MoO3 cathode for Zn ‐ion batteries. With the synergetic effect of Al2O3 coating and phosphating process, a fiber ‐shaped Zn‐ion battery based on modified MoO3 cathode presents favorable flexibility, admirable capacity, and superior rate performance. AbstractAqueous Zn ‐ion batteries (ZIBs) have garnered the researchers' spotlight owing to its high safety, cost effectiveness, and high theoretical capacity of Zn anode. However, the availability of cathode materials ...

Publication date: Available online 19 February 2020Source: Pharmacology Biochemistry and BehaviorAuthor(s): Jeffrey W. Grimm, Frances SauterAbstractEnvironmental enrichment (EE) for rodents is generally defined as providing subjects with an environment enhanced with access to conspecifics, novel and tactile stimuli, and in many preparations, more space. EE exposure, in particular as an “intervention” in adult rodents, decreases food and drug seeking and taking. This review focuses on the reduction of sucrose seeking and taking in rats assessed in operant-based procedures. The operant-based model provides a mean...

Bahrami, Shahram RabbaniAbstractIn this research, the scaffolds from gum tragacanth (GT), poly (Ɛ-caprolactone) (PCL) and poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA), were fabricated by electrospinning method for use in the healing of diabetic ulcers. At first, three different compositions from PCL-GT-PVA with blend ratios of (2:1:0.5), (2:1:0.8) and (2:1:1.5) were fabricated and the formulation 2:1:0.8 was selected as proper one. Then, the effect of changing GT concentration on the morpho...

Authors: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Campanella V, Gallusi G, Di Taranto V, Cugini C, Nardi R, Mea A, Marzo G, Libonati A Abstract The aim of this study is to evaluate the micro hardness Vickers of a composite micro hybrid polymerized under constant pressure. Twelve experimental samples were made equally divided into two groups: an experimental group and a control. Enamel plus HRi (Micerium) microbiotic composite resin, UD3 colour, was inserted into a syringe heater (ENA HEAT Composite Heating Conditioner) so that the material could be brought to a temperature of 39°C. A defined amount of composite resin is taken from t...

In this study, we designed a randomized controlled trial (RCT) to test the feasibility and efficacy of the PPI in improving mental health status of PWUD attending methadone maintenance treatment (MMT). A total of 140 MMT users were randomly allocated into the intervention group (n = 70) which carried on the intervention (documenting “Three Good Things” every day for 2 weeks) and the control group (n = 70) which received booklets about mental health. Baseline, 2-week, 1-month, and 3-month follow-up interviews were conducted. Generalized estimating equations for repeated measureme...

This study demonstrates that machine-learning can efficiently predict some vitamin deficiencies in patients with active psychiatric symptoms, based on the largest cohort to date with intense psychiatric episode. The prediction method may expedite risk stratification and clinical decision-making regarding whether replacement therapy should be prescribed. Further research includes validating its external generalizability in other clinical situations and clarify whether interventions based on this method could improve patient care and cost-effectiveness.

AbstractPurposeBrain positron emission tomography using 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18FDG-PET) provides a metabolic assessment of brain function that is useful for differential diagnosis among several neurodegenerative diseases manifested by cognitive impairment (CI). The purpose of the study is to describe the pattern of 18FDG-PET abnormalities in patients with CI related to alcohol use disorder.MethodsPatients admitted to the addiction medicine department of a university hospital in Paris between January 2017 and October 2018 with a confirmed diagnosis of alcohol-related cognitive impairment (ARCI) or Wernicke encephalopathy...

Conclusion: Substitution of parenteral thiamine in individuals with suspected WE is a well-established treatment regimen. However, suggestions according to guidelines vary widely. Furthermore, hardly any evidence-based recommendations exist on a more general use of thiamine as a preventative intervention in individuals with AUD. Further research is of utmost importance to raise awareness for this potentially undervalued problem.Eur Addict Res 2019;25:103 –110
