In the biochemical tests, aspartate amino transferase
(AST) (278 IU/L) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) (148 IU/L) were found to be increased, whereas serum electrolytes, bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, total protein, albumin, gamma glutamyl transpeptidase and renal function tests were found to be normal.
Alanine amino transferase (ALT) and aspartate amino transferase
(AST) were quantified in kinetic mode, while following the guidelines of the Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IFCC), in serum by means of commercial kits ALT / GPT Liquiform and AST / GOT Liquiform (Labtest, Minas Gerais, Brazil).

total protein, albumin, total cholesterol, Aspartate amino transferase
(AST) and Alanine amino transferase (ALT), calcium and phosphorus were estimated in serum using diagnostic kit and semiautomatic analyzer.
Similarly, a significant decrease (p<0.05, p<0.01 and p<0.001) in the hepatic enzyme markers, alkaline phosphatase (ALP) alanine amino transferase (ALT) and aspartate amino transferase
(AST), in treated rats with both moringa leaf and seed extracts were observed at doses; 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg by Olayemi et al.
Plasma total proteins (g/dL), creatinine (mg/dL), blood urea nitrogen (mg/dL), plasma glucose (mg/dL), triglycerides (mg/dL), albumin (g/dL), alanine amino transferase (ALT; IU/L), and aspartate amino transferase
(AST; IU/L) activities were analyzed using available kits supplied by Bio Merieux SA, F-69280 Marcy l'Etoile, France.
In this study, the rates of cirrhosis were calculated from National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) data by using two surrogate indicators, the aspartate amino transferase
to platelet ratio index (APRI) and the FIB-4 score.
Liver function tests were totally deranged with total bilirubin level being 9.6 mg% (direct bilirubin was 7.70 mg% and indirect bilirubin was 1.9 mg%), alanine amino transferase being 52 IU/L, aspartate amino transferase
being 1045 IU/L, and alkaline phosphatase being 203 IU/L.
laboratory findings were a leukocyte count of 14 200/mm 3, with 91% neutrophils, a hemoglobin level of 11.7g/dl, a platelet count 71000/[mm.sup.3], a glucose level of 110mg/dl, a blood urea nitrogen level of 24mg/dl, a creatinine level of 1.9mg/dl, an alanine amino transferase level of 250 U/l, an aspartate amino transferase
level of 46 U/l, a total bilirubin level of 1.2mg/dl.
Biochemical analysis in the serum of TAA-treated rats revealed a significant increase in the levels of tumor necrosis factor (TNF-a) and transforming growth factor (TGF-AY), as well as, the activities of aspartate amino transferase
(AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and gamma glutamyl transferase (GGT).
His initial laboratory values were as follows; haemoglobin: 10.7g/dl (normal: 14-18) white blood cells 3200/mm3 (normal:5000-11000) platelet:130.000/mm3 (normal: 130000-450000) prothrombin time 16.8 minutes aspartate amino transferase
(AST): 126 U/L (normal: 0-35) alanine amino transferase (ALT): 102 U/L (normal:0-45) albumin: 2.6 g/dl (normal: 3.5-5.2) globulin: 3.4g/dl (normal: 2.3-3.5) alpha- fetoprotein (AFP): 61 ng/ml (normal: 0-13) His hepatitis B surface antigen and delta hepatitis antibody were also positive.
The serum separated was used for assay of Alanine amino transferase (ALT), Aspartate amino transferase
(AST), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), albumin, triglycerides and serum bilirubin according to the instructions provided by the company.
