When treating AML with Gemtuzumab what levels of ALT and AST should we be more concerned with?
Common liver function tests usually involve the investigations of Transferases - usually either Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or Aspartate aminotransferase (AST).
These enzymes normally reside inside cells so raised levels usually represent hepatocellular (liver) damage. ALT is more specific to the liver, as AST is also found in cardiac and skeletal muscle and red blood cells.
Very high levels (>1000 IU/l) suggest drug induced hepatitis e.g. Gemtuzumab
