Activity of alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) was estimated using highly sensitive spectrophotometric procedure with p-nitrose dimethylaniline as a substrate in blood serum of control healthy persons without a history of alcohol abuse and of the patients with chronic alcoholism. The ADH activity in the control group was about 0.55 +/- 0.04 microM/min/L and in the patients it was 2.5-5-fold higher. A direct correlation was found between the ADH activity and duration of alcohol abuse. In the patients with alcohol abstention syndrome the activity of ADH was 4.2-fold higher as compared with controls. During the remission, from 2 months up to 5 years, the enzymatic activity decreased, but was still distinctly higher than the control values.
