Study of raised alanine aminotransferase
in patients of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
The measurements of blood urea nitrogen (BUN), serum creatinine, alanine aminotransferase
(ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) were done using an automated routine chemistry analyser (Roche Cobas Integra 400 plus, Roche Diagnostics Limited, Switzerland) with commercial kits (Roche Cobas packs, Roche Diagnostics Limited, Switzerland) according to manufacturer's protocol.

Overall improvement was observed in subsequent alanine aminotransferase
levels (491 units per litre, IQR 356.5 TO 775 vs 151 units per litre, IQR 49.5 to 299.5).

Conclusion: Mean serum alanine aminotransferase
value in young healthy adults included in this study was 29.9 8 IU/L which is lower than normal reference provided at present which is 40 IU/l.
Plasma enzyme activities of alanine aminotransferase
and aspartate aminotransferase were determined using commercial kits (Zhongsheng Bio-Technology and Science Inc., Beijing, China) on a random access analyzer (Technicon RA 1000, Tarrytown, NY, USA).
As part of an ongoing, long-term study on the reproductive ecology and health status of imperial cormorants (Phalacrocorax atriceps), blood samples were collected to establish baseline values for hematologic parameters (hematocrit, red and white blood cell counts, leukocyte profile, heterophil:lymphocyte ratio, total solids) and serum chemis tries (glucose, uric acid, urea, total protein, triglycerides, cholesterol, albumin:globulin ratio, alkaline phosphatase, lactate dehydrogenase, creatine phosphokinase, aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase
, calcium, phosphorus).
It also reduced the levels of inflammatory biomarkers such as C-reactive protein (CRP) and markers of liver dysfunction such as alanine aminotransferase
and aspartate aminotransferase, suggesting reduction in the inflammation responses.
Results showed that in the licorice group there was a reduction in alanine aminotransferase
(ALT) from 64.09 to 51.27 IU/mL and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) decreased from 58.18 to 49.45 IU/mL (p <0.001).
On page 1653, in Box 2, the fourth bullet point should begin, "Baseline hepatic chemistry blood tests (at least alanine aminotransferase
[ALT]) for patients with specific conditions:"
Serum bio chemistry values were determined for glucose (294+-95.1), urea (17.9+-4.9 mg/dl), cholesterol (250.3+-57.2 mg/dl), creatinine (0.41+-0.2 mg/dl), lactate dehydrogenase (1069+-581), total protein (9.8+-0.7 mg/dl), alanine aminotransferase
(75.9+-64.3) and aspratate aminotransferase (297.2+-177) as indicator of bird health and can be used in the future as a reference values in hematology and serum biochemistry of blue rock pigeon.
