High impact information on Liver Function Tests

  • In four of the five patients treated with 600 to 900 mg of ursodiol two to three times daily, results of liver-function tests returned to normal [7].
  • Normal findings of CSF examination (except for increased opening pressure), abnormal findings of liver function tests, and increased blood ammonia further supported the diagnosis [8].
  • Circulating carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) levels and their relation to liver function test values were studied in 29 jaundiced patients with benign extrahepatic biliary tract obstruction and inflammation [9].
  • RESULTS: Patients in the manufacturer-defined treatment groups did not differ significantly with respect to age, sex, type of leukemia, disease stage, calculated creatinine clearance, presence of abnormal liver function tests, or total dose received [10].
  • However, values of liver function tests were not increased, although serum albumin, serum alanine amino-transferase, and alkaline phosphatase were significantly decreased [11].
