Abstract
The study was aimed at ascertaining the prevalence of diffuse liver lesions and associated factors in the general population of Novosibirsk, Western Siberia. A representative sample of 362 men and 870 women aged 25-64 years was investigated using ultrasound examination and blood tests for liver-derived enzymes (AST, ALT, GGT). Diffuse liver lesions (DLL) were detected in 42.8% of males and 18.7% of females. A significant association was found between DLL and elevated levels of liver enzymes. In conclusion, the prevalence of chronic liver disease is relatively frequent in the unselected urban population.

somatic dis- orders (arterial hypertension, silent ischemia, diffuse liver lesions, and noncalculous cholecystitis) were higher among atypical flushers compared to nonflushers (p < 0.05-0.01). The mechanism of the ob- served atypicai flushing response is unknown. We speculate on its hereditary nature

Abstract
The characteristics of alcohol-induced flushing response were studied in some Siberian Native populations (Chukchi, Eskimo, Jakuts, Udege, and Nanaian). Flushing peculiarities were estimated and the interrelationship with drinking patterns, the ethanol patch test (EPT), and somatic disorders were analyzed. Frequency of flushing response varied from 9.0% to 66.7%, and was more often apparent among females. Only the Nanaian demonstrated typical flushing, which did not allow them to consume high doses of alcohol. In the rest of the populations flushing was "atypical," i.e., appearing sometimes after high doses of alcohol but not interrupting alcohol drinking, and not associated with a positive EPT. Direct genotyping in DNA samples of Chukotka Natives did not reveal atypical allele aldehyde dehydrogenase (AIDH 2/2). Frequencies of alcohol problems, alcohol dependence symptoms, and somatic disorders (arterial hypertension, silent ischemia, diffuse liver lesions, and noncalculous cholecystitis) were higher among atypical flushers compared to nonflushers (p
