The chocolate had no effect on the biochemical or pathological alterations induced by ethanol. However, other investigators, using the same dietary regimen, have not used the chocolate flavoring and have not encountered any problems. Because ethanol is a dietary nutrient that displaces other nutrients as a source of calories, the nutrient variables must be rigorously controlled. The pair-feeding regimen used in the oral-ethanol feeding model allowed for isocaloric pair-feeding. Blood ethanol levels are monitored by daily measurement of 24-h urine ethanol content.
