The samples were then analyzed to determine serum alanine transaminase (ALT), aspartate transaminase (AST) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) with the help of an automated biochemical auto-analyzer (HITACHI-917).
Assessment of liver cell injury is done by the estimation of serum aspartate transaminase or AST (formerly glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase or SGOT) and serum alanine transaminase or ALT (formerly glutamic pyruvic transaminase or SGPT).
