Examples

  • Because transient elevations of serum transaminase levels have been observed during the course of succimer therapy, serum transaminases should be monitored prior to the initiation of therapy and at least weekly during therapy, particularly in patients with a history of liver disease.

    Succimer

  • AST (aspartate transaminase)/SGOT (serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase) - measures the amount of this enzyme, which the liver (along with other organs) produces and stores.

    Laboratory tests for liver transplant patients

  • Alanine transaminase ALT: Reflects liver function in conjunction with other tests.

    You Staying Young

  • Alanine transaminase ALT: Reflects liver function in conjunction with other tests.

    You Staying Young

  • Alanine transaminase ALT: Reflects liver function in conjunction with other tests.

    You Staying Young

  • ALT (alanine transaminase)/SGPT (serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase) - measures the amount of this enzyme, which the liver produces and stores.

    Laboratory tests for liver transplant patients

  • Liver function tests, or LFTs these include alanine transaminase [ALT] and aspartate transaminase [AST], prothrombin time, albumin, bilirubin, and alkaline phosphatase

    DR. SANJIV CHOPRA’S LIVER BOOK

  • Your physician will be able to tell if you have acute hepatitis if the level of liver enzymes—alanine transaminase (ALT) and aspartate transaminase (AST)—are strikingly elevated in your blood.

    DR. SANJIV CHOPRA’S LIVER BOOK

  • Moreover, the levels of two liver enzymes called alanine transaminase (ALT) and aspartate transaminase (AST) were markedly elevated; these enzyme levels tend to soar with various types of liver disorders, including viral infections and liver damage caused by a number of drugs.

    DR. SANJIV CHOPRA’S LIVER BOOK

  • Two important liver enzymes are called alanine transaminase (ALT; also called serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase, or SGPT) and aspartate transaminase (AST; also called serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase, or SGOT).
