    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    Risks of drug abuse in a global context. Symposium. Berlin (DEU), 1992/09/15.

    Some epidemiological, morphological and toxicological aspects from a continuous prospective study of drug-related fatalities in Hamburg are described.

    The lethal risk for intravenous drug addicts (IVDA) has increased (1990: n=136 drug-related fatalities in Hamburg; 1991: n=184).

    Infectious diseases are common.

    From the epidemiological point of view the HIV-1 prevalence is decreasing; hepatitis C turned out to be a serious medical problem for IVDA.

    The fatal course of the addiction is mostly caused by heroin overdosage (sometimes in combination with ethylalcohol, benzodiazepines and barbiturates); about 40% of the fatalities were alcoholized (20% with a blood alcohol concentration of more than 1%).
