Chemical compound and disease context of Alcohol Withdrawal Seizures


Biological context of Alcohol Withdrawal Seizures

  • Genotypes of the Cys23Ser polymorphism were assessed in 454 subjects of German descent, comprising: 1) 93 severely affected alcohol-dependent males with a history of alcohol withdrawal seizure or delirium, 2) 119 patients affected by an idiopathic generalized epilepsy, and 3) 242 controls [13].

Anatomical context of Alcohol Withdrawal Seizures

  • These mouse disorders include audiogenic seizures, the epilepsy (El) mutation, spontaneous seizures, the tottering/learner syndrome, cerebellar abnormalities, myelin disorders, and alcohol withdrawal seizures [14].
