Carbohydrate-deficient transferrin for detection and monitoring of sustained heavy drinking. What have we learned? Where do we go from here?

Abstract

Carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT) has been widely investigated as a biological marker of heavy alcohol consumption. In general, it has been found to be at least as sensitive and probably more specific than gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT). Because the two analytes are not highly correlated, their use in parallel enhances the sensitivity of detection… (More)
