Abstract

The effect of alcohol ingestion on the prognosis of chronic liver diseases was studied. Among 880 patients with chronic liver diseases the percentage of alcoholics was high, 33%, compared to 3.2% in the control group. The period of survival time is decreased by one-half in patients with regular alcohol ingestion. According to 'in vitro' investigations they report that in chronic active hepatitis the low E(t)-rosette forming cell number is further decreased after incubation with alcohol, and ethanol inhibits the immune-stimulating effects of levamisole on E(t)-rosette forming cells.
