By M. J. Akhtar (auth.), J. S. Madden, Robin Walker, W. H. Kenyon (eds.)

It is for me, as President of the Merseyside Lancashire & Cheshire Council on Alcoholism, a sign privilege to write down a quick foreword to those complaints of the 3rd overseas convention on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. through the week specialists, from across the world, in all these disciplines that have a contribution to make to the answer of the issues of alcoholism and drug dependence, surveyed fresh advances in our wisdom of the aetiology, epidemiology, early popularity, administration, and the social and commercial implications of those dual scourges of the modern scene. The discussions have been so much invaluable and enlightening even if a large spectrum of conflicting perspectives and stories have been printed. The justification for including another quantity to the becoming literature during this box is two-fold; first, that these playing the convention can learn at rest and extensive the transactions of the convention; and secondly, that those that have been not able to wait may benefit from the latest perspectives of overseas specialists within the various features of 1 of the main present difficulties in global overall healthiness.

Another theory is that chronic pancreatitis in the alcoholic is a result of increased pancreatic secretion in association with increased tone of the sphincter of Oddi leading to pancreatic damage. Walton, Shapiro, Yeung and Woodward (1965) have shown that pancreatic duct pressure rises in dogs given ethanol but this, in the acute experiment, does not lead to pancreatitis. Alcoholic pancreatitis usually occurs after many years of alcoholism. The patients usually present with recurrent attacks of upper abdominal pain of increasing severity which may be associated with weight loss, steatorrhoea and carbohydrate intolerance.
