Abstract Partly desialylated transferrin was measured in the serum of subjects with chronic alcoholism, of patients with non-alcoholic-related steatohepatitis, diabetes, and other non-alcoholic liver diseases, and of healthy controls. In non-alcoholic patients and controls the maximum desialylated transferrin expressed in relation to total transferrin was 1·5%. This value was exceeded in 18 (90%) of the 20 alcoholics. By contrast, γ-glutamyl transferase was within the reference range in 9 of the alcoholics.
