Accuracy of b-GGT fraction for the diagnosis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Serum gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) activity is a sensitive but non-specific marker of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Recently, four GGT fractions (big-, medium-, small-, free-GGT) were described in humans. AIM We aimed to investigate whether a specific GGT fraction pattern is associated with NAFLD. METHODS Gamma… (More)
