A carbohydrate-deficient transferrin test may have been useful to establish chronic alcohol abuse, but was not ordered.
Traditionally, this has involved measurement of liver function tests such as [gamma]-glutamyltransferase, but today measurement of an alcohol-induced change in serum transferrin glycosylation, known as carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT), (1) offers a more specific biomarker for heavy drinking (1).
(14) Therefore, the IFCC Working Group proposed percent carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (%CDT) as preferred method of reporting relative to total CDT.
Carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT) is the most specific marker to detect long-term high alcohol consumption.
Objective: Carbohydrate-Deficient Transferrin (CDT) is a biomarker, which is more specific and sensitive than the traditional markers for screening alcohol-use disorders and is approved by the U.S.
The most established serum biomarkers of alcohol-induced pathology are [gamma]-glutamyltransferase (GGT), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), and carbohydrate-deficient transferrin (CDT).
Carbohydrate-deficient transferrin is the only test approved by the FDA for the identification of heavy alcohol use.
Carbohydrate-deficient transferrin, known as "%CDT," is a blood test to detect heavy alcohol use (five or more drinks a day) over the past two weeks.
Superiority of carbohydrate-deficient transferrin to gamma-glutamyltransferase in detecting relapse in alcoholism.
Alcohol use is assessed with biologic markers for alcohol and carbohydrate-deficient transferrin and with self-reports.
If the ratio of carbohydrate-deficient transferrin to transferrin was 0.9 in the 97 patients who had a serum hyaluronate level above 35 [micro]g/L, only three patients with stage 2 fibrosis were misclassified.
