A team of six researchers determined the concentration of platelet 5-HT (5-hydroxytryptamine) and the activity of platelet MAO (monoamine oxidase) in drug-free alcoholics in hospital for the withdrawal syndrome, and compared the levels to sex-matched healthy controls. They conclude that the biological markers can be used to determine baseline characteristics of alcoholics and to predict suicide risk efficacy in treatment, therapeutic response to medication, and alcohol consumption.
