BACKGROUND Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) is a minor alcohol metabolite that accumulates in hair and is proposed as a stable marker for the detection of chronic and excessive alcohol consumption above a cut-off level of 30pg/mg hair. A correlation between drinking behavior and EtG hair concentrations is observed, but large variability exists. AIMS To investigate the correlation between alcohol consumption and hair EtG concentrations in alcohol dependent patients, and the effect of gender differences… CONTINUE READING
