The advent of molecular biology and recombinant DNA technology has profoundly changed contemporary medicine. These new scientific tools have made it possible to identify and understand pathological mechanisms at cellular, subcellular and molecular levels which has added previously unimaginable novel dimensions to the diagnosis, therapy and prevention of a rapidly increasing number of diseases of the liver and biliary system. The title of this book - Acute and Chronic Liver Diseases: Molecular Biology and Clinics - expresses this epochal progress in hepatology. A series of acute or chronic diseases of the liver has been chosen whose modern clinical management most eloquently reflects the impact of the new scientific insight gained from molecular biology. The book, the proceedings of the 87th Falk Symposium (X International Congress of Liver Diseases: Part II of the Basel Liver Week 1995) held in Basel, Switzerland, October 19-21, 1995, first presents an overview of the molecular pathology of the chosen disease, followed by discussions of the clinical inference which this new scientific information entails for diagnosis, management and therapy. This approach is expected to ease the readers' endeavour to connect basic to clinical science and to facilitate appreciation of the enormous progress but also the inherent limitations and arising questions which modern molecular biology has brought to clinical medicine.

The last few years have seen major advances in our understanding of the molecular and genetic events associated with alcohol abuse. The advent of recombinant DNA technology has allowed the structure of the genes and proteins of alcohol metabolism to be identified, and this work has formed the basis for genetic studies of factors that influence drinking behavior and alcoholism. This book provides an introduction for the non-specialist reader to recent developments concerning the molecular pathology of alcohol-related disease. It gives substance to the view that alcoholism is an organic disorder that stems from the specific interaction of alcohol and its metabolites with cellular components. Particular attention is paid to the molecular biology of the enzymes of alcohol metabolism.
