    Abstract

    We studied the prevalence of hepatitis B virus markers (HBV) in 170 patients with chronic liver disease and increased alcohol intake and in 120 normal subjects, sex and age matched. Markers of past HBV infection were significantly higher in the patients while no significant difference was found according to the markers of active viral replication. From these data alcohol seems to represent a risk factor for HBV infection: vaccination against HBV is therefore useful in alcoholic patients.
