The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of prolonged ethanol intake on the morphology and protein metabolism in the rat pancreatic acinar cells. Weight-matched triplets of Sprague-Dawley rats were fed Lieber-DeCarli diet containing 5% (wt/vol) concentration of ethanol, isocaloric amounts of Lieber-DeCarli diet, or rat chow ad libitum for 6, 12, and 18 mo. In the ethanol-fed group, histologic studies by light microscopy showed absence of protein plugs in the pancreatic ducts and… CONTINUE READING
