Table 2 Biochemical data. Aspartate-aminotransferase (AST), alanine-aminotransferase (ALT), AST/ALT ratio, ammonia, albumin, thiostatin and α 1 acid glycoprotein (α 1-AGP) serum concentrations in control rats and in rats with portacaval shunt (PCS), 4 weeks after the operation.

From: Plasma redox status is impaired in the portacaval shunted rat – the risk of the reduced antioxidant ability

Group Control (n = 11) PCS (n = 11) p-value
AST (IU/L) 65.72 ± 11.19 134.50 ± 67.60 p = 0.004
ALT (IU/L) 29.36 ± 5.90 65.33 ± 27.27 p = 0.0001
AST/ALT 2.35 ± 0.08 2.38 ± 1.58 NS
Ammonia (μmol/L) 104.00 ± 48.05 274.00 ± 92.25 p = 0.0001
Albumin (g/dl) 2.89 ± 0.18 2.54 ± 0.08 p = 0.0001
