Influence of ethanol dose and pigmentation on the incorporation of ethyl glucuronide into rat hair.

Abstract

Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) is a minor and specific metabolite of ethanol. It is incorporated into growing hair, allowing a retrospective detection of alcohol consumption. However, the suitability of quantitative EtG measurements in hair to determine the quantity of alcohol consumed has not clearly been demonstrated yet. The purpose of this study was to… (More)
