When blood parameter changes were reviewed between the groups, preoperatively and postoperatively, no significant difference was found statistically regarding levels of urea or creatinine; AST (aspartate aminotransferase); ALT (alanine aminotransferase); or glomerular filtration rates (GFR) (p> 0.05) (Table-IV).
We confirmed 2 SFTSV infections in Hue in 2017 by amplifying the partial S segment of the viral RNA in stored serum from patients with thrombocytopenia; elevated levels of serum hepatic enzymes, including aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase; and gastrointestinal symptoms, such as vomiting.
Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) and platelet levels were measured under the supervision of an experienced pathologist.
The present study is the first of its kind in Libya and it was undertaken to estimate the changes in serum alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase and alkaline phosphatase levels in both pre-dialysis and haemodialysis chronic kidney disease patients in comparison to normal healthy control, and to find out the association between hepatic enzyme changes and eGFR, body weight loss, duration of disease and duration of haemodialysis in CKD patients.

Values of serum alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, creatinine, total protein (TP), glucose, and bilirubin concentrations were measured on an identical automatic analyzer with standard assays.
Hepatitis B recommendations were also updated, with the CDC now advising: "Adults with chronic liver disease, including, but not limited to, hepatitis C virus infection, cirrhosis, fatty liver disease, alcoholic liver disease, autoimmune hepatitis, and an alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or aspartate aminotransferase (AST) level greater than twice the upper limit of normal, should receive a HepB series."
Several noninvasive methods such as aspartate aminotransferase (AST)/alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ratio (AAR), aspartate aminotransferase-to-platelet ratio index (APRI) [6], and fibrosis indexbased on the four factors (FIB-4) [7] have been used to assess disease severity.
