The possible generalization to diazepam of the dampened response to ethanol in sons of alcoholic fathers was evaluated in 62 sons of alcoholics (family history positive [FHP] subjects) and 62 family history negative (FHN) controls (124 men). Following challenges with placebo, .12 and .2 mg/kg of diazepam in three separate sessions, evaluation of subjective feelings and increases in body sway revealed no decreased reaction for FHPs. (J.
