Abstract
The potential role of serum carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT) m easurement in the assessment of 'High Risk Offenders (HROs)' applicati ons for licence reinstatement in Great Britain was examined. Serum CDT determination would have provided useful confirmation of licence deci sions in 70% of HROs assessed, would have resulted in a change in the licence decision in 8%, and most likely would have confounded the lice nce decisions made in the remaining 22%. Estimation of serum CDT could provide useful information to assist in decisions regarding licence r einstatement in selected HROs.
