    • Abstract


      Chronic administration of ethanol in rats caused the reduction of serum cholesterol binding reserve. The very low density and high density lipoproteins, main serum cholesterol binding reserves, were slightly increased with corresponding increases in their lipid and protein components during initial stage of alcohol consumption. However, these capacities get deminished during reversal of hyperlipemia induced by prolonged action of ethanol. This situation may be an early indicator for the initiation of hepatic damage and a variety of secondary effects of ethanol.
