Clinical studies have shown that a once-daily oral dose of REVOVIR not only reduces the amount of HBV DNA, but also normalises alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels in patients experiencing deterioration in liver function caused by chronic hepatitis B.
The drug has proven an effective inhibitor of virus replication and has indicated improvements in the increase of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and overall liver health.
A total of 36 patients were enrolled in the study, of which 31 (86%) had discontinued bosentan, 2 (6%) had discontinued sitaxsentan and 3 (8%) had discontinued both bosentan and sitaxsentan, sequentially, due to serum aminotransferase abnormalities.
Levels of C reactive protein, aminotransferases, blood glucose, creatinine, urea nitrogen, and electrolytes were within the normal range.

In post-marketing experience, elevations of liver aminotransferases (ALT, AST) have been reported with Letairis use.
Three weeks later, aminotransferases continued to rise, with an AST level of 103 U/L and an ALT level of 184 U/L.
The aminotransferases can often be increased by as much as 50 times the upper reference limit in acute viral, ischemic, and toxic hepatitis, whereas in alcoholic hepatitis the increases are generally <10-fold.
When an additional nine patients with chronic HCV infection and normal levels of aminotransferases were added to the study, a test for serum CK-18 fragments could detect fibrosis at stage 2 or higher with 100% sensitivity and 68% specificity at a cutoff value of 221.
Asymptomatic elevation of serum aminotransferases occurs in 25% of those treated.
Letairis can cause elevation of liver aminotransferases (ALT and AST) to at least three times the upper limit of normal (ULN).
Chronological development of elevated aminotransferases in a nonalcoholic population.
Compared with 758 IRAS subjects who did not develop type 2 diabetes, both of the aminotransferases were associated with a significantly elevated risk for the development of diabetes--with odds ratios of 1.
