In chronic alcoholics, while they consume ethanol, an increase in the oxidative hepatic metabolism is produced by means of an increment of microsomal enzymes induced by ethanol. In our study we have appraised this hepatic metabolism during the period of acute ethilic abstinence. This study has been performed in 20 chronic alcoholics without clinical symptoms, after five days free of ethanol drinks. The assessment of oxidative hepatic metabolism was realized by means of the measuring of corporal… CONTINUE READING
