NCI Drug Dictionary


white wine 
An alcoholic beverage made from fermented white grapes with potential orexigenic activity. Although not well understood, the mechanism for white wine's potential orexigenic activity may be due, in part, to its alcohol content and may involve alterations in neurotransmitter and hormone activities related to appetite regulation. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
