(CNN) — Adults in the United States who binge drink are consuming even more alcohol per binging episode, according to a new study published Thursday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Researchers analyzed data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System over a six-year period and discovered that the annual number of binge drinks among adults who reported excessive drinking jumped on average from 472 in 2011 to 529 in 2017. That’s a 12% increase. In 2017, the number of binge drinks per year among adult binge drinkers ranged from 320 per year in Massachusetts to 1,219 in Wyoming. The nu...

Publication date: 10 February 2020Source: Neuroscience, Volume 427Author(s): Alessandro Ieraci, Daniel G. HerreraAbstractDrinking alcohol during pregnancy is particularly detrimental for the developing brain and may cause a broad spectrum of cognitive and behavioral impairments, collectively known as fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). While behavioral abnormalities and brain damage have been widely investigated in animal models of FASD, the sex differences in the vulnerability to perinatal ethanol exposure have received less consideration.

Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) has been developed as a drug therapy for smoking cessation and has been considered a safe alternative to smoking during pregnancy. However, the effects of long-term nicotine exposure via NRT on the fetus are still being debated. Here, we determined the effects of long-term maternal nicotine exposure in gestation and lactation on nicotine-related behavior and drug vulnerability in dams and offspring rats. To expose long-term nicotine, on gestation day 14, pregnant rats were implanted with osmotic minipumps releasing nicotine tartrate (6 mg/kg/day, subcutaneously, equivalent to 2&thi...
