PMID:  5411451     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Serial measurements in alcoholic subjects showed a profound fall of serum iron for three days after withdrawal of alcohol and a reversion of abnormal accumulation of erythroblastic haemosiderin to normal. These findings suggest an interference in normal haem synthesis, most probably by a direct effect.
