Y LamboeufR Derache

Abstract

Alcohol- and aldehyde-dehydrogenasic activities have been measured in different tissues; these activities are modified after chronic alcoholic intoxication and/or withdrawal in digestive tract, spleen, kidney and lung. The results underline the possible relationship between extra-hepatic ethyl-oxidation and withdrawal syndrome.
