The MaxDiscovery[TM] Aspartate Transaminase (AST) kit permits quantitative visible determination of AST in a convenient format.
Alanine transaminase (ALT), aspartate transaminase (AST) (Reitman and Frankel, 1957), alkaline phosphatase (ALP) (King, 1965a), 5' nucleotidase (5'ND) (Luly et al.
Serum alkaline phosphatase (ALP), aspartate transaminase (APT) and alanine transaminase (ALT) activities of rabbits administered sertraline, clozapine, amitriptyline, imipramine or saline for 28 days are presented in Table 7.
The differential diagnosis for serum alanine transaminase and serum aspartate transaminase levels in the thousands includes a very short list of drugs, exposure to hepatotoxins such as carbon tetrachloride, and viral hepatitis.
3 mg/dL; alkaline phosphatase, 440 units/L; aspartate transaminase, 686 units/L; and alanine transaminase, 589 units/L.
The most common adverse events were infusion reactions, increased aspartate transaminase (AST), increased alanine aminotransferase (ALT), neutropenia, thrombocytopenia, fever, chills, and peripheral neuropathy.
9%), thrombocytopenia (27,000 cells/mm3), elevated levels of liver enzymes (alanine transaminase 347 IU/L, aspartate transaminase 139 IU/L), creatinine (1.
The following battery of 21 tests was performed on a Hitachi 747 Analyzer (Boehringer Mannheim, Mannheim, Germany), which required 250 [micro]L of plasma: alkaline phosphatase, alanine transaminase, aspartate transaminase, creatine phosphokinase, lactate dehydrogenase, total bilirubin, albumin, total protein, globulin, cholesterol, glucose, calcium, phosphorus, total carbon dioxide, sodium, potassium, chloride, urea nitrogen, creatinine, gamma glutamic transaminase, and uric acid.
The levels of blood urea nitrogen (BUN), serum creatinine, thyroid-stimulating hormone, aspartate transaminase, alanine transaminase, alkaline phosphatase, creatine kinase (CK), amylase, and bilirubin along with the leukocyte count were normal.
The immunological response of the 4 hospitalised cases, measured during the acute episode (Table II), showed raised levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), aspartate transaminase (AST) and alanine transminase (ALT).
Blood samples of 5 ml were drawn after 8-12 h overnight fasting for the measurement of lipid profile [total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, low density lipoprotein (LDL) and triglycerides (TG)], liver function tests [Alanin transaminase (ALT), aspartate transaminase (AST) and Gama-glutamyl trasferase (GGT)], and fasting plasma glucose levels.
