First, the relationship between alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has not yet been clearly established, although increased liver enzymes are usually used as a surrogate marker of NAFLD.
Hepsera also provided sustained improvement in liver function through 144 weeks, as measured by blood levels of the liver enzyme alanine aminotransferase (ALT).
Results of the 18,000-patient Therapeutic Arthritis Research and Gastrointestinal Event Trial (TARGET) demonstrated that less than 1% of patients had elevations of the liver enzymes aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase greater than three times the upper limit of normal, "which is similar to levels observed with currently available NSAIDs," the company noted.
