Book Description :

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 115 Americans die each day from an opioid overdose, which averages one death every 12.5 minutes. Between 1999 and 2016, the number of drug overdoses catapulted by 300 percent, with injection drug use increasing by 93 percent between 2004 and 2014 and opioid-related hospital admissions increasing by 58 percent over the past decade. And an inexorable sequela of the opioid epidemic is the spread of infectious diseases. To address these infectious disease consequences of the opioid crisis, a public workshop titled Integrating Infectious Disease Considerations with Response to the Opioid Epidemic was convened on March 12 and 13, 2018, by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Participants discussed strategies to prevent and treat infections in people who inject drugs, especially ways to work efficiently though the existing public health and medical systems. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.

Book Description :

Opioid use and infectious diseases are intertwined epidemics. Despite the fact that the United States is more than two decades into the opioid crisis - the cause of tens of thousands of deaths every year on its own - the health system has not sufficiently addressed the morbidity and mortality of drug use coupled with infectious diseases. This is at least in part due to traditional models of substance use disorder care wherein substance use disorder treatment is delivered independently of other medical care, thereby inhibiting the delivery of comprehensive care. As a result, the United States is experiencing a drastic increase in infectious diseases that spread with drug use. Opportunities to Improve Opioid Use Disorder and Infectious Disease Services examines current efforts to integrate care and describes barriers, such as inadequate workforce and training; lack of data integration and sharing; and stigma among people who use drugs and have also been diagnosed with an infectious disease. The conclusions and recommendations of this report will help to promote patient-centered, integrated programs to address this dual epidemic.

Book Description :

The Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services asked the RAND Corporation to conduct an exploratory study examining the factors that affect the ability of Community Health Centers (CHCs) to reduce transmission of infectious diseases related to the opioid epidemic. The emphasis is on rural areas, which have suffered disproportionately from the opioid epidemic and lack resources to address the complex social and medical issues related to opioid use, opioid use disorder, and risk for infectious diseases. Discussions were held with staff from eight CHCs, selected from the 102 CHCs in counties that prior research has identified as being at high risk for opioid-use related transmission of infectious diseases. The content of these discussions was summarized to identify the major challenges that CHCs face in preventing and treating infectious diseases and the strategies that they employ to overcome these strategies.

Book Description :

Few contributions to the field concerning the current opioid crisis in the United States focus sufficient attention on the public health aspects of the epidemic and share examples that practitioners can use to prevent opioid use disorder and the broader issues of substance misuse and addiction. A great deal of prior published work has concentrated on health care and clinical perspectives related to the crisis, including developing prescribing guidelines, enhancing prescription drug monitoring programs, scaling up access to overdose reversal medication, and making medication-assisted treatment more widely available nationwide. This text adds to and complements this prior work by addressing the central tenets of the public health approach to the opioid crisis.

Book Description :

Introduction and Perspectives This volume is based on the proceedings of the 7th annual symposium on the topic Neuroimmune Circuits, Infectious Diseases and Drugs of Abuse, Bethesda, Maryland, Oc- ber 7–9, 1999. This symposium, as in the past, focused on newer knowledge concerning the relationship between the immune and nervous systems with regards to the effects of drugs of abuse and infections, including AIDS, caused by the immunodeficiency virus. Presentations discussed the brain-immune axis from the viewpoint of drugs of abuse rather than from the subject of the brain or immunity alone. The major aim of this series of conferences has been to clarify the consequences of immunomodulation induced by drugs of abuse in regards to susceptibility and pathogenesis of infectious diseases, both in man and in various animal model systems. The recreational use of drugs of abuse such as morphine, cocaine, and marijuana by large numbers of individuals in this country and around the world has continued to arouse serious concerns about the consequences of use of such drugs, especially on the normal physiological responses of an individual, including immune responses. Much of the recent data accumulated by investigators show that drugs of abuse, especially opioids and cannabinoids, markedly alter immune responses in human populations as well as in experimental animals, both in vivo and in vitro.

Book Description :

In recent years, the United States has experienced substantial reductions in new HIV infections. Since the introduction in late 2013 of a safe and effective direct-acting antiviral, almost 1 million Americans have been cured of hepatitis C. Today, the opioid epidemic threatens a reversal of hard-won gains against blood-borne infectious disease. Approximately 10,000 Americans died of HIV and 20,000 of hepaititis C in 2014. The future trajectory of HIV in the United States is uncertain, and hepatitis C cases, once declining, are on the rise. The vast majority of new hepatitis C infections in the United States are due to drug use.

Book Description :

The use of recreational drugs of abuse by large numbers of individuals in this country and abroad has aroused serious concerns about the consequences of this activity. For example, it is recognized that marijuana is currently widely used as a recreational drug in the United States as well as other countries. Similarly, abuse of cocaine, especially crack cocaine, is considered to be an epidemic. “The war on drugs” by the US Government was directly aimed at the illicit use of cocaine, marijuana, and opiates as well as other drugs of abuse. Furthermore, alcohol is also considered a major problem of abuse in this country as well as in many other countries. It is estimated there are at least 10 million alcoholics in the United States alone. A signi?cant portion of those hospitalized with infectious diseases are alcoholics. Similarly, there have been many reports of association between marijuana use and increased susceptibility to infection as well as a re- tion between use of opiates and infections. The relationship between drug abuse and increased incidence of various infections has stimulated increased investi- tion of whether and how such drugs affect immune function, especially imp- tant for resistance against infectious agents. During the last decades, a wide variety of studies have shown that drugs of abuse, including marijuana, cocaine, or opiates, as well as alcohol, alter both neurophysiological as well as pathological responses of individuals.

Book Description :

The opioid abuse epidemic in the United States calls for new and cost-effective policies to address the rise of morbidity and mortality associated with drug injection. This dissertation explores how, and the extent to which, mathematical modeling can inform policy interventions surrounding HIV for people who inject drugs (PWID). First, we develop a dynamic compartmental model empirically calibrated to the US HIV epidemic to assess the cost-effectiveness of HIV preexposure chemoprophylaxis (PrEP) for PWID. We identify the optimal delivery scenario for PrEP but nonetheless find that it is not likely to be cost-effective. Next, we consider PrEP within a context of other HIV interventions. We find that an optimal portfolio of opioid agonist therapy (OAT), needle syringe exchange programs, and test and treat programs can deliver greater health benefit for less cost than PrEP. Although PrEP averts more infection than OAT, OAT provides more value because of its immediate quality of life improvements for an individual with high competing mortality risks. Finally, to explore how structural modeling assumptions influence policy conclusions, we perform a case study of a potential HIV vaccination across a family of linked models. We find that aggregating individuals into compartments biases us towards intervention, an effect most pronounced when targeting to smaller populations. Parameter complexity, although it has little effect on network models in this context, can mitigate overestimation effects in compartmental models.
