Several studies have evaluated the effect of food on alcohol pharmacokinetics; however, most studies have used oral alcohol administration, which cannot separate the influence of food on absorption from its influence on alcohol elimination. Alcohol clamping uses intravenous alcohol and provides a direct measure of the alcohol elimination rate (AER). Two studies, using alcohol clamping at 50 mg%, were conducted to investigate the effect of food and food composition on AER (g/h) in healthymenand… Expand
Absorption and Peak Blood Alcohol Concentration After Drinking Beer, Wine, or Spirits
TLDR
Findings indicate that BAC is higher after drinking vodka/tonic than beer or wine after fasting, and men drinking on an empty stomach should know BAC will vary depending on beverage type and the rate and amount of EtOH. Expand
Effect of dissolved oxygen in alcoholic beverages and drinking water on alcohol elimination in humans.
TLDR
It is postulate that highly oxygenated water augments the effect of oxygen in the alcoholic beverage in alcohol elimination and therefore, it is necessary to investigate the supportive effect of ingesting additional oxygenatedWater after heavy drinking of normal alcoholic beverages. Expand
A pilot study of alcohol exposure and pharmacokinetics in women with or without children with fetal alcohol syndrome.
TLDR
This study did not show any difference in alcohol pharmacokinetics in free-choice drinking by non-pregnant women, who either have given or have never given birth to FAS children, however, mothers of FASChildren tend to consume more alcohol per session. Expand
Pharmacodynamic effects of intravenous alcohol on hepatic and gonadal hormones: influence of age and sex.
TLDR
Alcohol induced a complex pattern of hormonal responses that varied between younger and older men and women, and some of the observed sex-based differences may help improve understanding of the greater susceptibility to alcohol-related hepatic damage seen in women. Expand
Elimination Rate and Pharmacokinetics of Alcohol in Korean Healthy Male Adults
ObjectivesZZThe objective of this study is to identify alcohol pharmacokinetics and to investi- gate the correlations between various factors for alcohol metabolism of healthy Korean males.Expand
Lactational state modifies alcohol pharmacokinetics in women.
TLDR
The systemic availability of alcohol was diminished during lactation, however, the reducedavailability of alcohol in lactating women did not result in corresponding changes in the subjective effects of alcohol. Expand
Alcohol pharmacokinetics and risk-taking behaviour following exercise-induced dehydration
TLDR
The findings suggest that dehydration or other physiological changes associated with exercise may have an ability to influence the subjective effects of alcohol and increase the likelihood of risk-taking behaviours such as drink-driving. Expand
Fasting-induced increase in plasma ghrelin is blunted by intravenous alcohol administration: A within-subject placebo-controlled study
TLDR
The present findings suggest that, despite bypassing the stomach, alcohol still attenuated circulating ghrelin levels, i.e. the fasting-induced increase in circulating gh Relin was blunted by IV alcohol administration. Expand
Alanine-fortified tomatoes relieve the acute alcohol-induced adverse effects in healthy men: a randomized cross-over study
TLDR
This study demonstrates that the simultaneous ingestion of AFT under the consumption of excess alcohol and a micronutrient-fortified meal relieved the acute alcohol-induced adverse effects in male volunteers, consistent with the effectiveness observed in rats. Expand
Research advances in ethanol metabolism.
TLDR
This review summarizes recent developments in the investigation of the following influences on alcohol elimination rate: gender, body composition and lean body mass, liver volume, food and food composition, ethnicity, and genetic polymorphisms in alcohol metabolizing enzymes as well as in the promoter regions of the genes for these enzymes.

The effect of food on alcohol absorption and elimination patterns.
TLDR
The same nine subjects were given near bolus doses of alcohol on two occasions separated by one week and instructed to consume the alcohol as rapidly as possible, finding the average elimination rate of ethanol was found to be significantly lower after meal. Expand
Effect of high-fat, high-protein, and high-carbohydrate meals on the pharmacokinetics of a small dose of ethanol.
TLDR
Drinking ethanol after eating a meal, regardless of the nutritional composition, decreases the systemic availability of ethanol. Expand
Influence of several factors on blood alcohol concentrations after drinking alcohol.
TLDR
The influence of several factors on the blood alcohol course after drinking diluted ethanol was studied in young, healthy volunteers under strictly standardized conditions, with results indicating that sex, dose and concentration of the alcohol, physical exercise immediately after drinking, meal consumption before drinking and energy content and composition of the meal had an attenuating effect.

TLDR
This chapter discusses the effects of food and body composition on the levels of blood alcohol, and the use of ‘area under the curve’ measurements to estimate oral bioavailability under conditions in which this method is not applicable. Expand
Clamping breath alcohol concentration reduces experimental variance: application to the study of acute tolerance to alcohol and alcohol elimination rate.
TLDR
The pilot study demonstrated the ability to prescribe experimental parameters of the brain's exposure to alcohol while preserving experimental flexibility in studies of acute tolerance to alcohol and AER. Expand
A physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) model for alcohol facilitates rapid BrAC clamping.
TLDR
The quick-clamping method enables, for the first time, the examination of the early-phase neuroadaptive responses to alcohol in human subjects, and provides a much earlier RST. Expand
Gender differences in alcohol metabolism: relationship to liver volume and effect of adjusting for body mass.
TLDR
Women have greater clearance of ethanol per unit lean body mass, confirming previous oral alcohol administration studies, and explaining the equivalent alcohol elimination rates seen when men and women are compared on the basis of liver size. Expand
Differing effects of carbohydrate, fat and protein on the rate of ethanol metabolism.
TLDR
The rate of metabolism of ethanol in humans has been assessed by intravenous infusion of ethanol/saline under feedback control to maintain a constant blood alcohol concentration and changes in ethanol metabolic rate were found. Expand
Effect of food on hepatic blood flow: Implications in the “food effect” phenomenon
TLDR
Computer simulations suggest that simple changes in QH alone cannot account for the increase in apparent oral bioavailability when propranolol is taken with food. Expand
Food effects on absorption and metabolism of alcohol.
The concomitant ingestion of various foods with alcohol resulted in a decreased area under the blood alcohol concentration curve, a lower peak concentration and an increased time to reach peak.Expand
