A set of reagents for determination of activity of aspartate aminotransferase for BS-300
In contrast, the incidence of high aminotransferase concentrations, as surrogate markers of NAFLD, was recently reported to be ~30 new incident cases per 1000 person-years in a cohort of Japanese healthy individuals (age 35 years) who were free of NAFLD at baseline (5).
When those in the highest aminotransferase quartile were compared with those in the lower three quartiles, the odds ratio for developing diabetes was 1.
Nine of 16 patients who had normal aminotransferase levels also had elevated levels of caspase-mediated CK-18 fragments.
Healthy volunteers were defined by analysis of various biochemical tests, including alanine aminotransferase (ALT) /AST, albumin, bilirubin, [gamma]-glutamyltransferase, alkaline phosphatase, and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), which were performed on a Hitachi 747 (Roche Diagnostics).
62 KA/unit for serum levels of malondialdehyde, reduced ascorbic acid, catalase, cholesterol, phospholipid, aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), and alkaline phosphatase (ALP), respectively.
3]/[micro]L), together with a moderate increase in liver enzymes (both aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase were more than twice the upper limit of normal values).
The following values were evaluated: WBC counts, RBC counts, PCV, hemoglobin, heterophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, prealbumin, albumin, [alpha]-globulin, [beta]-globulin, [gamma]-globulin, total protein, aspartate aminotransferase, alkaline phosphatase, lactate dehydrogenase, creatine kinase, calcium, phosphorus, iron, cholesterol, glucose, triglycerides, uric acid, urea, creatinine, total solids, bile acids, and butyrylcholinesterase.
Recent data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1988-1994) suggest that abnormal aminotransferase values are present in about 8% of the U.
They retrospectively compared 342 patients with elevated serum alanine aminotransferase or aspartate aminotransferase values who were prescribed a statin with 1,437 patients who were prescribed a statin but had normal liver enzyme levels and 2,245 patients who did not take any statins but had elevated liver enzymes.
However, the mean decrease in GGT was small, alanine aminotransferase was unchanged, and aspartate aminotransferase actually increased.
