  • Causa
    Due to information received from the field, the potential interference of sulfasalazine and sulfapyridine in the alanine amino-transferase (alt) tests was investigated. the interference through sulfasalazine and sulfapyridine was checked for all tests using nad(h) or nadp(h). this study was done with the following strongly elevated plasma concentrations which correspond to the clsi-guideline ep-7-a2:- 754 µmol/l sulfasalazine (300 mg/l)- 1.2 mmol/l sulfapyridine (299 mg/l)the interference depends on the pharmacokinetic and the clinical status of the patient (e.G. liver and kidney function, bowel resection etc.), which makes it impossible to provide exact information about serum drug concentration and half time.
