Thirty-six adult male Wistar rats (4 months-old) weighing an average of 460 g were randomized into four groups (9 rats per group), as follows: Test group A (low)--rats were fed an ethanol-containing liquid diet with ethanol representing 22% of total caloric value; Control group A--rats were fed a pair-fed control diet (ethanol replaced by isocaloric amounts of carbohydrate); Test group B (high)--rats were fed an ethanol-containing liquid diet with ethanol representing 36% of total caloric value; and Control group B--rats were fed a pair-fed control diet (ethanol replaced by isocaloric amounts of carbohydrate).
