Higher concentrations of alanine aminotransferase within the reference interval predict nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
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.
No patients receiving ambrisentan had aminotransferase elevations greater than three times ULN during this 12-week treatment period compared to three placebo patients who had IPAH.
Laboratory examination showed CRP 265 mg/L, CK 42,570 U/L, LDH 1,235 U/L, myoglobin >3,000 ng/mL, aspartate aminotransferase 368 U/L (<35), alanine aminotransferase 96 U/L (<45), [gamma]-glutamyl transpeptidase 182 U/L (<55), erythrocytes 3.
A serum aminotransferase level at the higher end of the "normal" range is associated independently with an increased risk of mortality from liver disease, according to an analysis of data from 142,055 men and women without known liver disease in a Korean insurance company database.
Aims and Objectives: We investigated the effects of OSAS and its treatment with short term nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy on serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) levels.
KEYWORDS: Alanine aminotransferase, Aspartate aminotransferase, Dengue, Hepatomegaly, Hyperbilirubinemia.
In one of our previous publications we have concluded that raised serum bilirubin, unconjugated bilirubin, aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) were predictors of mortality in patients with mushroom poisoning.
Values of serum alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, creatinine, total protein (TP), glucose, and bilirubin concentrations were measured on an identical automatic analyzer with standard assays.
Alanine aminotransferase at baseline and following paracetamol administration was noted, as well as dosage and duration of paracetamol, along with participants' demographic details.
Objective: To determine the reference range for serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels for young healthy individuals in our population and to find out effects of age and body mass index on alanine aminotransferase.
