Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Alcohol is a commonly used and abused drug. Epidemiological studies have identified alcohol consumption as a modifiable factor that influences, positively and negatively, several diseases. These include cardiovascular disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. Often there appears to be a differential effect of different drinking patterns, with frequent moderate consumption of alcohol being salutary and binge drinking or chronic abuse being deleterious to ones health. A better understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms mediating the effects of alcohol consumption is beginning to emerge, as well as a clearer picture as to whether these effects are due to the direct actions of alcohol (i.e., ethanol) itself, or caused in part by it’s metabolites, e.g., acetaldehyde, or by incidental components present in the alcoholic beverage (e.g., polyphenols in red wine). This special issue will include original research articles as well as review articles addressing various aspects of the impact of alcohol on disease progression.
