levels were significantly lower in haemodialysed CKD patients than pre-dialysed CKD patients (p= 0.00) and normal healthy controls (p= 0.00).
However, the rise in transaminase level remains in mild to moderate range and only 3-11% of patients may develop severe hepatitis.2 A previous study3 done in Pakistan, demonstrated that 15% of dengue patients developed severe hepatitis (alanine aminotransferase
[ALT] >300 units per litre [U/L]), and was associated with longer hospital stay, increased mortality and other complications.
In a study conducted in America, to establish the variability in the upper limit of normal (ULN) for alanine aminotransferase
(ALT) across different laboratories, it was found that there is wide variability in ALT ULN across different laboratories11.
In chicks, the lowering of blood aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase
activities was found to be specific for vitamin [B.sub.6] deprivation when the deficiencies of vitamin [B.sub.6], riboflavin, pantothenic acid, thiamine, niacin, and biotin were tested (Cheney et al., 1965) and similar results were also observed by Yen et al.
Quantitative analysis of plasma biochemical parameters total protein, creatinine, glucose, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), urea, cholesterol, alanine aminotransferase
(ALAT), and aspartate aminotransferase (ASAT) was done by using Photolab 1400.
Many subjects with chronic Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) infection show persistently normal alanine aminotransferase
(ALT) levels (PNALT), (1-4) and thus formerly defined as 'healthy' or 'asymptomatic' HCV carriers.
Among the patients with abnormal alanine aminotransferase
levels at baseline, more of those treated with entecavir achieved normal levels at 48 weeks, compared with those treated with adefovir (63% vs.
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.
Primary outcome parameter was the rate of alanine aminotransferase
(ALT) normalisation after 12 weeks.
Viramune (nevirapine) may raise levels of alanine aminotransferase
. A healthy alanine aminotransferase
level is 10 to 40 U/L.
About a quarter of both groups had elevated alanine aminotransferase
(ALT) levels at baseline.
ORLANDO -- Consider a diagnosis other than nonalcoholic fatty liver disease when an obese child or adolescent presents with elevated levels of the liver enzyme alanine aminotransferase
ORLANDO -- Consider a diagnosis other than nonalcoholic fatty fiver disease when an obese child or adolescent presents with elevated levels of the fiver enzyme alanine aminotransferase
, a retrospective study suggests.
First was the blood test which would measure levels of two enzymes - alanine aminotransferase
(ALT) and gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) - which the liver produces when it is not working properly.
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.
