|Treatments||ethanol, placebo, diphenhydramine, caffeine|
|Sponsor||University of Chicago|
|Collaborator||National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA)|
|Start date||March 2004|
|End date||July 2017|
|Trial size||400 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00961792, 12119a, 5R01AA013746|
This study attempts to elucidate the factors that contribute to escalation and maintenance of excessive ethanol drinking in young adults by:
1. Examining subjective and objective response differences to alcohol and other common substances in a sample of young, adult social drinkers with varying consumption patterns.
2. Determining whether response to alcohol and other substances is predictive of future consumption patterns through longitudinal follow-up interviews.
3. Examining the relationship between responses to alcohol and other substances at baseline and re-examination testing to evaluate if consumption patterns moderate this relationship.
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
|Masking||double blind (subject, investigator)|
