Blood samples for measuring serum alanine aminotransferase test (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase test (AST) and alkaline phosphatase level test (ALP) along with liver samples for histopathological analysis were taken after 24 hours of last dose.
In one of the Harvard team's studies of measuring liver function markers with a blood sample, the investigators found that the test for one of the markers, alkaline phosphatase, worked as expected after a shelf life of 3 months at room temperature, whereas the aspartate aminotransferase test showed discoloration after storage under these conditions.
