Abstract

The liver function tests are basic tools in the assessment of liver disease, they supply information about severity, progression of the illness and help to discriminate among treatment options. They are divided into two sections: biochemical test of liver function per se and serum markers of hepatobiliary disease. Although there are no new tests, liver transplant programs have stimulated development of metabolic capacity measurements to estimate liver function. At present the liver function tests, still are the best method to assess patients with liver diseases.
