1974). It is likely that a similar mechanism increases susceptibility in these patients to the hepatotoxic actions of a variety of compounds in the environment, including many commonly used drugs such as ioniazid and acetaminophen (Sato et al. 1981), and possibly carcinogens. These aspects are discussed in detail by Sato, Hasumura, and Seitz in other chapters. Enhanced microsomal degradation of endogenous substrates such as steroid hormones was also observed after chronic ethanol consumption; its impact on the endocrine status of the alcoholic is described by Van Thiel in this volume.
