Tuma; (2) The formation and clearance of MAA adducts in ethanol-fed rats, by Simon Worrall; (3) Immune responses to MAA adducts may play a role in the development of alcoholic liver disease, by Lynell W. Klassen; (4) Unique biological responses to MAA-modified proteins that may play a role in the development and/or progression of alcoholic liver disease, by Geoffrey M.
