Develop ment and multicenter evaluation of the N Latex CDT direct immunonephelometric assay for serum carbohydrate-deficient transferrin
, gamma-glutamyltransferase, and macrocytic volume as biomarkers of alcohol problems in women.
and chronic alcohol ingestion in subjects with transferrin CD-variants.
Insufficient standardization of a direct carbohydrate-deficient transferrin
Should we use carbohydrate-deficient transferrin
instead of [gamma]-glutamyltransferase for detecting problem drinkers?
Toward standardization of carbohydrate-deficient transferrin
(CDT) measurements; I, Analyte definition and proposal of a candidate reference method.
To quantify serum carbohydrate-deficient transferrin
, we used the commercial %CDT TIA set, which principally measures asialo-, monosialo-, and disialoTf instead of the absolute CDT values (U/L) obtained from a CDTect test.

and [gamma]-glutamyl transferase levels during disulfiram therapy.
(CDT) measured by capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE), particularly asialo-transferrin (TO, is purported to better differentiate between excessive and moderate drinkers than does CDT measured by turbidimetric immunoassay (TIA) (1, 2).
