Abstract [en]

Aspects of human metabolism of ethanol are reviewed with the main focus on the rate of ethanol clearance from blood in patients suffering from liver cirrhosis. Studies in humans and experimental animals do not support the notion of a slower rate of ethanol metabolism in patients with liver cirrhosis compared with those with normal liver function. The rate of ethanol disappearance from blood in healthy non-alcoholic subjects falls within the range 9-20 mg/dL/h and there is no compelling evidence to suggest that this should be much different in cirrhotic patients.
