Direct bilirubin is a measure of the amount of conjugated bilirubin, and is determined directly.
Before and after the treatment period of one week, complete blood count, prothrombin time, activated prothromboplastin time, serum alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, gamma glutamyl transpeptidase, total and direct bilirubin levels were measured.
The liver, despite the effects of alcohol and tumors, was still able to produce glucuronic acid, since the direct bilirubin was also increased as well as the urinary urobilinogen (shown on Table 1).
In addition, samples being collected for direct bilirubin analysis should be "promptly cooled to 4[degrees]C" and minimally kept at room temperature to prevent their degradation from artificially inflating the unconjugated bilirubin concentration.
9]/l; mean cell volume 82 fl; peripheral smear showed anisocytosis, target cells and schistocytes; lactate dehydrogenase 612 U/l; alanine transaminase 446 U/l; aspartate transaminase 191 U/l; total bilirubin 34 mmol/l; direct bilirubin 12 mmol/l; total protein 46 g/l; albumin 20 g/dl; international normalised ratio 2.
It would be helpful if a separate section were included for the evaluation of patients with elevated LFTs at baseline," the firms comments state In particular, Wyeth requested that that section "emphasize the need to differentiate the presence of direct bilirubin elevations from indirect bilirubin elevations, by obtaining both total and direct bilirubin levels.
6) This was further supported by case reports from Grollman and Odell (7) and Hobolth and Devantier, (8) demonstrating that measurable amounts of indirect as well as direct bilirubin could be extracted by PD when the dialyzing fluid contained albumin (4 g/dL to 5 g/dL).
