BACKGROUND Biological markers like carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT), gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT), and mean corpuscular volume (MCV) are used widely to screen for alcoholism. Most research has focused on male alcoholics, and there are few studies on female patients. The results are inconsistent; in general, they show lower sensitivities for all markers for women. METHODS We compared the diagnostic value of CDT, GGT, and MCV in 126 alcohol-dependent patients (91 men, 35 women) who… CONTINUE READING
