Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research

Weakness is a common clinical symptom reported in individuals with chronic alcohol use disorder. However, it remains unclear whether low strength in these individuals is directly related to excessive ethanol intake, other deleterious factors (lifestyle, environment, genetics, etc.), or a combination of both. Therefore, we examined whether (and how) ethanol reduces the muscle’s force-producing capacity using a controlled in vivo preclinical mouse model of excessive ethanol intake.
