“Drinking less to prevent alcoholism”

Synopsis:
Alcohol is the most abused drug and alcohol abuse causes serious health, social, and economic problems. We have demonstrated that hosphodiesterase-4 (PDE4), an enzyme that is critical for controlling intracellular levels of the second messenger cyclic AMP (cAMP), plays an important role in regulating alcohol drinking and alcohol withdrawal-induced negative symptoms such as anxiety and depression. I will share the discovery of PDE4 as a target for treatment of alcoholism and the data for manipulating PDE4 in the brain to achieve therapeutic efcacy.
