    Title:Alcohol Addiction: A Molecular Biology Perspective VOLUME: 22 ISSUE: 6 Author(s):Giampiero Ferraguti, Esterina Pascale and Marco Lucarelli Affiliation:Dipartimento di Biotecnologie Cellulari ed Ematologia, Sapienza Università di Roma, c/o Azienda Policlinico Umberto I, Edifi I Regina Elena , Roma, Italia. Molecular Basis of Addiction and Depression: INTRODUCTION TO DRUG ADDICTION: Like most psychiatric disorders, drug addiction is defined today solely on the basis of behavioral terms. For example, addiction can be defined as a loss of control over drug intake, or the compulsive seeking and taking of drugs despite adverse consequences.

    This textbook provides a fresh, comprehensive and accessible introduction to the rapidly expanding field of molecular pharmacology. Adopting a drug target-based, rather than the traditional organ/system based, approach this innovative guide reflects the current advances and research trend towards molecular based drug design, derived from a detailed understanding of chemical responses in the body. Drug addiction is a brain disease--that's the modern view and it is fully expressed in this up-to-date book. Among the many volumes on drugs written for lay readers, this one is unique in the breadth of its coverage and the depth of its science. The first part gives a clear scientific account of the nature of addiction, stressing neurobiology and addictive behavior and describing the "highs.

    This volume of Progress in Molecular Biology and Translational Science focuses on the molecular basis of drug ns contributions from leading authorities Informs and updates on all the latest developments in the field. Drug and alcohol abuse elicits significant biological changes in the brain that drive compulsive behavior and lead to addiction. Abrupt cessation leads to withdrawal, craving, and relapse. A complete understanding of the brain changes produced by abused substances is therefore necessary if we are to develop treatments for drug dependence.

It provides an intensive overview of the fundamentals, state-of-the-art advances, and major gaps in the cell and molecular biology of drug addiction within the broader context of neuroscience. Addiction .Addiction can be viewed as a form of drug-induced neural plasticity.

One of the best-established molecular mechanisms of addiction is upregulation of the cAMP second messenger pathway, which occurs in many neuronal cell types in response to chronic administration of opiates or other drugs of abuse. This upregulation and the resulting activation of the transcription factor CREB appear to.Since the previous edition, of this book, the impact of molecular biology on our understanding of the mechanisms of antimicrobial action and drug resistance has evolved significantly.

This is reflected in the book’s coverage with new material covering the remarkable recent developments in unraveling the complex molecular details of drug.
