Alcohol Policy Information System (APIS)

Update of December 2011:  APIS announces its latest update of State-by-State alcohol policies. This update reports on 21 substantive changes in State alcohol policy statutes and regulations that occurred though January 1, 2011. Highlights include changes regarding underage drinking, alcohol and pregnancy, alcohol and motor vehicles, retail sales of alcohol, health care services and financing, and more.  For complete information go to:  http://www.alcoholpolicy.niaaa.nih.gov/.

NIAAA web site now provides access to the Alcohol Policy Information System (APIS) based on the earlier work of Alex Wagenaar at University of Minnesota. It's purpose is to encourage research on alcohol policies in the US. The Alcohol Policy Information System (APIS) provides user-searchable access to authoritative, detailed, and comparable information on alcohol-related policies in the United States, at both State and Federal levels. Designed primarily as a tool for researchers, APIS is intended to encourage and facilitate research on the effects and effectiveness of alcohol-related policies. The alcohol-related policies covered by APIS include: Alcoholic beverage control , Taxation and pricing , Advertising, marketing, and mass media, Transportation, crime, and public safety, Health care services and financing education, Public services, functions, and programs, Employment and workplace. These areas of alcohol-related policy are described further in the Alcohol Policy Classification System. APIS provides information on alcohol-related policies in several formats and at several levels of detail: 1) Detailed Information on Selected Alcohol Policy Topics - This section of the APIS Web site provides the following information on each policy topic: a brief narrative description; a list of definitions (if necessary); a summary of relevant Federal law (if any); tables comparing policies on that topic across jurisdictions (as of a particular date and/or over a period of time specified by the user); a brief explanation of variables used in creating these tables; notes explaining the limitations of the information provided; charts and maps; relevant statutory and regulatory text; and references to selected Federal publications. All tables may be downloaded in a format suitable for many spreadsheet and statistical programs. 2) Archive of Alcohol-Related Bills and Regulations - This section of the APIS Web site provides the following information on every alcohol-related bill and regulation enacted or adopted in the United States (at both State and Federal levels), beginning January 1, 2002: a brief narrative summary of the bill or regulation; the full text of that bill or regulation; and the full text of statutory or regulatory code(s) as amended by that bill or regulation. All enacted bills and adopted regulations are assigned to one or more alcohol-related policy areas (using the Alcohol Policy Classification System developed for APIS). Site users may search for bills and/or regulations by jurisdiction, year, alcohol policy area(s), and other dimensions. APIS has been developed by The CDM Group, Inc., under contract to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (Contract No. N01AA12009). Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation and UrbanPlanet, LLC, are major subcontractors. APIS has built on and benefited from work initiated by the University of Minnesota's Alcohol Epidemiology Program, under the direction of Prof. Alexander C. Wagenaar, with funding from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Additional features will be added to the APIS Web site over time. Suggestions from researchers and others are welcome, as is information on any problems that site users may encounter while using the APIS Web site.

Brown University Library

The Chester H. Kirk Collection on Alcoholism and Alcoholics Anonymous and Related Collections on Alcohol and Addiction Studies
http://library.brown.edu/collections/kirk/  (Kirk Collection).
http://library.brown.edu/collections/kirk/related.php  (Related Collections/Archives added to the Kirk Collection).
This unique historical collection was founded in 1995 by a contribution from Chester H. Kirk, and envisioned by David C. Lewis (Center Director) and Vartan Gregorian (University President).  The initial 15,000 items had been amassed by bookseller and author Charles Bishop.
Chronologically, the collection ranged from a leaf from the 1493 Nuremberg Chronicle depicting a drunken Noah to late 20th century studies. The formats were equally diverse: in addition to printed books and pamphlets, there were periodicals, newspapers, dealers' catalogues, posters, audiovisual materials, photographs, 18th century engravings, and 19th and 20th century sheet music. American in emphasis, the collection provided rich resources for the study of the temperance and prohibitions movements of the 19th and 20th centuries, hospital-based treatment of addictive behavior, and the 20th century evolution of self-help programs under the leadership of Alcoholics Anonymous.
A digital project to create online access to Anti-Saloon League pamphlets is underway.  The Harris Collections of American Poetry and Plays has been incorporated, and contains thousands of temperance plays, temperance verse, and temperance songsters.  Similarly, collections in the history of American medicine provided Brown with a core research collection in the causes and treatment of alcoholism and drug addiction.  Over the years, Brown has continued to add important private archives to the Kirk Collection:  These include The Robert Holbrook Smith Collection (Dr. Bob Archives), the Rutgers-Anti-Saloon League Collection of Temperance and Addiction Studies Periodicals, the Marty Mann NCADD Archives,  the Ernest Kurtz Library of Alcoholics Anonymous Alcoholism Literature, and the Clarence Snyder A.A. Collection.  Special funds ensure that purchases of current literature remain up to date.

Gene Database: NeuroSNP Project (Washington University in St. Louis)

Database Created to Supplement Commercial Microarray Coverage of Addiction-Related Genes. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS), which scan the entire genome to find genetic variations (called SNPs) that are associated with particular diseases, have revolutionized the way scientists search for genetic causes of diseases, including drug and alcohol addiction. Most SNP research uses commercial microarrays, called ‘gene chips,' which contain thousands of small pieces of DNA that recognize and bind to specific sequences of DNA in an experimental sample. Although a single gene chip can contain tens of thousands of small pieces of DNA, no chip can cover the entire human genome, and commercial chips tend to provide better coverage of some genomic regions than others. To test how well commercial microarrays include genes suspected to play a role in drug and alcohol addiction, researchers funded by NIDA first assembled a list of 910 genes known or suspected to be associated with addiction and found that commercial microarrays did not completely cover the possible SNPs found in these genes; for some genes, this lack of coverage was substantial. For example, a gene called CDH13, whose products activate a number of addiction-related signaling pathways in the brain, has 2,414 SNPs that are common in the African sample of the International HapMap project. However, only 50 percent of these SNPs were found on one of the commercial microarrays sampled. To supplement this incomplete coverage by commercial microarrays, the researchers developed a publicly available database for addiction researchers containing SNPs for the 910-gene set. All SNPs in the database are tagged with a prioritization score, which is intended as a measure of biological relevance to addiction. "Addiction researchers should find [the new database] to be a valuable tool, both in the design and interpretation stages of a GWAS," conclude the authors.
