Liver damage through prolonged intake of high amounts of alcohol is a serious problem that affects many members of the population. The aim of this study was to investigate changes in the glycosylation of haptoglobin (Hp) resulting from alcoholic liver diseases. The monosaccharide composition was measured in Hp isolated from 48 healthy individuals, 15 alcohol abusers (AA); 25 patients with alcoholic liver disease, including those with alcoholic cirrhosis (ALD/AC), and 17 other patients with… CONTINUE READING
