Alcoholism recovery genetic marker identified
from Medical Daily
Acamprosate is a wonderful little drug capable of preventing relapse in some living with an alcohol dependency. The only trouble is acamprosate doesn't work on everyone, and doctors have no way of knowing who will benefit from this drug. Well, that is until now. A team of researchers believe they have found a genetic marker that will help them identify individuals who could benefit from acamprosate, a finding which could be the first step toward more effective pharmaceutical approaches to alcoholism.
