In one of our earlier paper we have already concluded that raised serum bilirubin, unconjugated bilirubin, aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and prothrombin time were predictors of mortality in patients with mushroom poisoning.
Multiple linear regression analysis was used with serum bilirubin as an objective variable and age, sex, disease duration, medication history, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, TP, CRP, and ESR as explanatory variables, indicating that serum bilirubin was correlated with ESR (b = -0.

Results of this study indicated that the mean values of alkaline phosphatase (ALP), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), gammaglutamyltransferase (GGT), insulin, homeostasis model assessment-insulin resistance- index (HOMA-IR), total cholesterol (TC), low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-c) and triglycerides (TG) were significantly decreased in group (A), where the mean value of the quantitative insulin-sensitivity check index (QUICKI) and high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-c) were significantly increased, while there were no significant changes in group (B) Also; there was a significant difference between both groups at the end of the study , these findings agreed with many previous studies in this field.

However, one of the two patients treated with the high dose experienced a transient, asymptomatic increase in serum aspartate and alanine aminotransferase levels caused by AAV8-capsid-specific T cells in the peripheral blood, and the other patient in the high-dose group experienced a slight increase (though still below the upper limit of normal) in liver enzyme levels.
Many subjects with chronic Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) infection show persistently normal alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels (PNALT), (1-4) and thus formerly defined as 'healthy' or 'asymptomatic' HCV carriers.
