Abstract
A number of routine laboratory markers provide objective information a bout alcohol use and abuse. The usefulness of these markers is discuss ed. One such marker recently developed is serum carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT), which has a greater overall marker potential than other existing tests. The use of CDT in combination with some of the o ther markers is likely to enhance the detection of alcohol abuse or he avy consumption.
