SGPT and serum creatinine levels in extract treated diabetic rats were similar to that of diabetic control rats.
The administration of C[Cl.sub.4] to the animals resulted in a marked increase in total bilirubin, serum SGOT, SGPT and ALP levels in control group indicating liver injury caused by C[Cl.sub.4].
Biochemical Observations: Collected blood was used for Estimation of serum SGPT, SGOT, & ALKP on a semiautomatic RA-50 analyzer using the diagnostic reagent kit by DiaSys International.
The tests performed in this study (11) are serum total bilirubin, direct bilirubin and indirect bilirubin levels using the diazo method of Pearlman and Zee, serum total protein using Biurett reagent, serum albumin using bromo coresol green (BCG) method, serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase (SGPT) was analyzed using autozyme glutamate pyruvate transaminase and serum glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (SGOT) was analyzed using autozyme glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase.
Table 11: Comparison of Serum Cholinesterase versus Conventional Liver Function Tests in Liver Disease (LD) and Non-Liver Disease (NLD) Biological Reference Parameter Interval Cholinesterase (IU/L) 4659-14448 IU/L Total Bilirubin (mg/dl) Up to 1.1 mg/dl Direct Bilirubin (mg/dl) Up to 0.3 mg/dl Indirect Bilirubin Up to 0.8 mg/dl (mg/dl) SGPT (IU/L) Up to 40 IU/L SGOT (IU/L) Up to 38 IU/L ALP (IU/L) 98-279 IU/L Total Protein (g/dl) 6.6-8.3 g/dl Albumin (g/dl) 3.5-5 g/dl Group-1 (LD Patients) n=75 Parameter Mini.
There was a preferential elevation of SGOT compared with SGPT similar to study by Vaibhav Shukla, but no such difference was seen in study by Srivenu Itha et al.
of 0.62 and albumin was 3.75 with SD 0.32 and Serum Bilirubin level was 3.86 with SD 5.22, Mean SGOT was 111.27 with SD 147.98, and Mean SGPT was 70.20 with SD 99.84.
The above table shows relation between raised SGPT and hepatomegaly.
