The Biochemical Profile in Chronic Alcoholics before and after Antabuse Treatment
AbstractAlcoholism represents one of the most serious world-wide socio economic and health problems. It is seen in all races and ethnic groups. It can be defined as a chronic progressive potentially fatal disease characterised by the continued use of alcohol. Alcohol causes diseases of central nervous system, liver, heart, gastro intestinal tract and psychiatric disorders. Repeated use of alcohol causes oesophagitis, gastritis, duodenitis, laryngeal cancer and other diseases of digestive tract and Wernicks and Korsakoffs syndrome. Chronic alcohol abuse is also a major cause for cirrhosis. Thus the present study is undertaken to assess the biochemical parameters, protein profile and electrolyte concentration of chronic alcoholics before and after the antabuse treatment.
