  • A long-term double blind trial of metronidazole in alcoholism is described. In the short term trial, up to four weeks, there was a trend to greater improvement in the metronidazole group, but this trend only reached statistically significant levels (p<0.025) at twelve month follow-up. Possible methods of action of the drug are discussed.
