|(T;T)||among alcoholics, likely to be heavier drinkers|
A study of 275 patients seeking treatment for alcoholism concluded that Caucasians of with the rs1042173(T;T) genotype consumed an average of 11.17 drinks per drinking day, compared with an average of 8.58 for carriers of a rs1042173(G) allele (p = 0.0034). While this held true for both men and women, this association was not seen in Hispanics. [PMID 19032574]
