Utility of gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase and mean corpuscular volume in alcoholic liver disease



Utility of gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase and mean corpuscular volume in alcoholic liver disease



Southeast Asian Journal of Tropical Medicine and Public Health 36(4): 1007-1010



The present study was designed to establish the role of Gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (gamma-GT) and mean corpuscular volume (MCV) in alcoholic liver disease (ALD). Serum gamma-GT, total and direct bilirubin, albumin, total protein, AST, ALT and ALP were assayed by standard methods in a clinical chemistry autoanalyser. MCV, Hb, PCV and RBC were measured by an automated cell counter. Activity of gamma-GT and MCV levels were significantly higher in the patients with ALD compared to controls.
