Abstract: 222 patients with chronic alcoholism (the second step of the disease) at the state of abstination and in the period of alcohol consumption were studied. In the course of treatment the patients received about 0.5 g of teturam per day within 4 months. In blood serum of the patients content of ethanol, malonic dialdehyde and activity of ethanol-oxidizing system (EOS) were estimated. In practically healthy persons, consuming no ethanol, no activity of EOS was noted as a rule. But in the patients with chronic alcoholism activity of EOS was 100-fold increased with simultaneous elevation in ethanol and malonic dialdehyde content in blood serum. After treatment with teturam content of ethanol, malonic dialdehyde and, especially, activity of the EOS were decreased in blood of the patients. After the treatment during 4 months activity of EOS was still distinctly higher in the patients than in healthy persons.
