Author information

A number of routine laboratory markers provide objective information about alcohol use and abuse. The usefulness of these markers is discussed. 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 other markers is likely to enhance the detection of alcohol abuse or heavy consumption.
