Addiction to medications what are the risks and who is vulnerable? by Nora D Volkow ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
(CIT): NIH Clinical Center's 2004 Medicine for the Public lecture series. Most people who take prescription medications take them responsibly, but the non-medical use of these drugs can be dangerous. Non-medical use of certain prescription drugs can lead to abuse and dependence, characterized by compulsive drug-seeking and use. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, an estimated 6.2 million people used prescription medications non-medically in 2002. The National Institute on Drug Abuse's annual Monitoring the Future survey found a staggeringly high increase in reported rates of non-medical use of two pain medications among 12th graders. One-in-ten high school seniors took Vicodin(r) last year, making it the second-most commonly reported illicit drug used by high school seniors, after marijuana
Transplant of cultured neuron-like differentiated chromaffin cells in a parkinson's disease patient. A preliminary report by Rene Drucker Colin ( )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Background. Treatment of Parkinson's Disease (PD) has been attempted by others by transplanting either the patient's own adrenal medullary tissue or fetal substantia nigra into caudate or putamen areas. However, the difficulties inherent in using the patient's own adrenal gland, or the difficulty in obtaining human fetal tissue, has generated the need to find alternative methods. Methods. We report here of an alternative to both procedures by using as transplant metrial cultured human adrenal chromaffin cells differentiated into neuron-like cells by extremely low frequency magnetic fields (ELF MF). Results. The results of this study show that human differentiated chromaffin cells can be grafted into the caudate nucleus of a PD patient, generating substantial clinical improvement, as measured by the unified Rating Scale for PD, which correlated with glucose metabolism and D2 DA receptor increases as seen in a PET scan, while allowing a 70 percent de crease in L-Dopa medication. Discussion. This is the first preliminary report showing that transplants of cultured differentiates neuron-like cells can be successfully used to treat a PD patient(AU)

Neurochemical mechanisms underlying responses to psychostimulants ( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This study employed positron emission tomography (PET) to investigate biochemical and metabolic characteristics of the brain of individuals which could put them at risk for drug addiction. It takes advantage of the normal variability between individuals in response to psychoactive drugs to investigate relation between mental state, brain neurochemistry and metabolism and the behavioral response to drugs. We discuss its use to assess if there is an association between mental state and dompaminergic reactivity in response to the psychostimulant drug methylphenidate (MP). Changes in synaptic dopamine induced by MP were evaluated with PET and [11C]raclopride, a Dâ‚‚ receptor radioligand that is sensitive to endogenous dopamine. Methylpphenidate significantly decreased striatal [11C]raclopride binding. The study showed a correlation between the magnitude of the dopamine-induced changes by methylphenidate, and the mental state of the subjects. Subjects reporting high levels of anxiety and restlessness at baseline had larger changes in MP-induced dopamine changes than those that did not. Further investigations on the relation between an individual's response to a drug and his/her mental state and personality as well as his neurochemical brain composition may enable to understand better differences in drug addiction vulnerability
Rasgos de personalidad de estudiantes de medicina. Nuevas posibilidades del MMPI by Nora D Volkow ( )
1 edition published in 1982 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Se aplico el MMPI-168, version abreviada del original, a un grupo de estudiantes de medicina de posgrado, aspirantes a iniciar sus residencias hospitalarias.

Los resultados muestraque en lo general, los estudiantes posgrado tienen una mejor salud mental psicometrica que los de pregrado. El analisis de cumulos mostro la existencia de subgrupos dentro de los aspirantes con caracteristicas muy diferentes. La mayoria de los aspirantes aceptados se encontraron en los cumulos de bajo puntaje, lo cual muestra una consistencia importante entre los criterios evaluativos que se usaron para su seleccion y los datos psicometricos aqui descritos
