Problem 7P

Problem 7P

A chronic alcoholic requires a much larger dose of ethanol as an antidote to methanol poisoning than does a nonalcoholic patient. Suggest a reason why a larger dose of the competitive inhibitor is required for an alcoholic.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 7P

An alcoholic has more alcohol dehydrogenase so more ethanol is needed to tie up this larger amount of enzyme. The patient is given intravenous infusions of dilute ethanol. The ADH enzyme is swamped by all the ethanol; allowing time for the kidneys to excrete most of the methanol before it can be oxidized to formic acid.
