Based on our study with sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of aminotransferase platelet ratio index (APRI) of 78.3%, 32.7% and 60.7%, respectively and from data around the world, APRI, had low diagnostic precision in envisaging the occurrence of varices.
Evaluation of aminotransferase abnormality in dengue patients: a meta-analysis.
Ten years later, in 1999, now with the knowledge of hepatitis C virus in hand, Mathiesen et al (4) published the next study of asymptomatic patients with unexplained aminotransferase elevations.
Relative elevations of serum alanine and aspartate aminotransferase in muscular dystrophy.
(i) In the UD class, 185 patients (out of 193) had a single aminotransferase determination.
The elevation of CK and aminotransferase levels in dystrophinopathy is easy to understand due to the organ distribution of enzymes: ALT and AST are distributed mostly in the liver and muscles, while CK is distributed highly in the muscles [18-20, 39-41].
A0--before treatment; A1--after administration of 0.5 g IVMP; A2--after administration of 3.0 g IVMP; A3--after administration of 4.5 g IVMP; B0--before treatment; B1--after administration of 3.0 g IVMP; ALT--alanine aminotransferase (normal range: 7-56 U/L).
Aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase activities in plasma: Statistical distributions, individual variations, and reference values.
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.

The multivariable analysis also linked physical activity to an average 3.30-IU/L drop in alanine aminotransferase levels (95% CI, -5.57 to -1.04) and to a 4.9-IU/L decrease in aspartate aminotransferase levels (95% CI, -8.68 to -1.02).
Levels of 11 parameters were studied: albumin, aspartate aminotransferase, calcium, creatine kinase, globulin, glucose, phosphorus, potassium, total protein, sodium, and uric acid.
The trial included 80 men and women with elevations of the liver enzymes alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and ultrasonography diagnosed NAFLD who received 500 mg of green tea extract or a placebo for 90 days.
[3] This ratio was originally used to distinguish aminotransferase elevations of the inflammation type (De Ritis ratio <0.7) from the necrosis type (De Ritis ratio >0.7).
