GENETIC EPIDEMIOLOGY OF SUBSTANCE USE DISORDERS: PA-02-112

Statistics from Altmetric.com

Purpose: NIDA seeks to stimulate genetic epidemiologic studies of substance use disorders (SUDs, drug abuse, and dependence). Previous studies using twin, adoption, and family approaches indicate that genetic factors substantially influence the risk for SUDs. Building on these findings, new studies are needed to refine SUD phenotypes for future molecular genetic studies, clarify gene-environment interactions for fine-tuning preventive interventions with high-risk populations, refine nosology and thus improve treatment matching, and expand findings to understudied populations. …
