07/01/1986 - "Among the 61 nonalcoholic patients with liver disease, 11 had an increased mitochondrial aspartate aminotransferase/total aspartate aminotransferase ratio, specificity of which was 82%. "
02/01/1985 - "In patients with chronic liver diseases we found a greater increase in the activity of glutamate dehydrogenase than of mitochondrial aspartate aminotransferase and the correlation between the two mitochondrial enzymes was stronger. "

10/01/1990 - "These include: the requirement for improved enzymological screening, despite the introduction of a test for hepatitis C; the imbalance between the popularity of "unexplained chronic aminotransferase elevations" and efforts to solve the inherent problems; the inadequate attempts to use the metabolic changes in the hepatocytes to improve diagnosis, prognosis, and pathophysiological understanding of viral liver diseases; the remarkable investigations into the 2'-5'-oligoadenylate synthetase for better control of interferon therapy in chronic viral hepatitis; the use of enzymes as markers of etiology, particularly for the detection of alcohol induced liver diseases; the continuing preference for the aminotransferases in this scenario although the ratios of aspartate aminotransferase over alanine aminotransferase, or of mitochondrial aspartate aminotransferase over total aspartate aminotransferase activity, largely depend on the severity and intralobular localization of damage and the stage of the liver disease."
