Serum enzymes of diagnostic importance were tested according to a predetermined schedule to determine if unexplained elevations occur in patients with end-stage renal failure when frank uremia is prevented by hemodialysis. Evaluations of the patients' clinical status at the time of each measurement were used to assess the significance of abnormal values. Eleven patients who had been maintained with two or three times weekly hemodialyses for 3 to 26 (mean, 16) months were studied. Each enzyme was measured 82 times. AU SGOT values were within normal limits. The other results are given in the table.
Analysis of the data was
