Alcohol Dependence: Sequencing from Multiplex Families

Study ID Alternative Stable ID Type
phs001775 Case-Control

Study Description

Two multiplex for alcohol dependence family studies were initiated based on the gender of a pair of probands. Ascertainment of a pair of AD probands was used to increase the density of alcohol dependence within the family. Identification of male (Cognitive and Personality Factors in Relatives of Alcoholics Family Study) and female (Biological Risk Factors in Female Alcoholics Family Study) alcohol dependent probands was accomplished by identifying an alcohol dependent proband while in treatment in a substance abuse treatment facility in Pittsburgh and surrounding communities who provided contact information for a sibling whom he/she thought might be interested in participating. The studies had identical ascertainment requirements. DNA was banked for all willing participants.
