1) Acute hepatitis A: elevated aminotransferase levels with peak value above 500 U/L and negative serology test results for hepatitis B and hepatitis C infections; (2) Recent acute hepatitis A: elevated aminotransferase levels with peak value below 500 U/L and either evolving S/CO (positive to borderline or negative) or resolving aminotransferase values (normal AST level); (3) Resolved acute hepatitis A: aminotransferase levels normal; (4) Indeterminate: elevated aminotransferase levels below 500 U/L; neither evolving S/CO nor resolution of abnormal aminotransferase values.
In this study, parameters including alanin aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), total protein, malondialdehyde and fasting blood sugar (FBS) measured.

It is "very important" to determine the frequency of "clinically significant elevations in aminotransferase levels after gene transfer," the investigators wrote, adding that this will require a larger number of participants treated at the high-dose level.
Plasma alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase activities were increased after TRI exposure in all mouse lines.
The values of serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST), activator protein-1 m-RNA, [alpha]-smooth muscle actin, transforming growth factor-[beta], 14-hydroxynonenal and 8-oxo20deoxyguanosine, all markers of oxidative stress, liver compromise and stellate cell activation were significantly lower in the treatment group than the non treatment group.

Methods: 17 patients with chronic hepatitis C and persistently elevated aminotransferase levels were treated for 12 weeks with 3200 mg standardized ALE per day.
Alaine aminotransferase is a signal of liver toxicity.
McGoon from the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, and colleagues examined the incidence of increased serum aminotransferase concentrations and the overall safety of ambrisentan in 36 patients who had previously discontinued other endothelin receptor antagonists because of increased serum aminotransferase concentrations.
By day 4 of hospitalization, the patient's level of creatine phosphokinase had elevated to 146 266 U/L, the level of aspartate aminotransferase was 3082 U/L, the level of alanine aminotransferase was 1144 U/L, and the level of lactate dehydrogenase was 4687 U/L.
