Abstract380 plasma samples were used with the purpose of evaluate the biochemical profile of some enzymes in healthy BH (Brasileiro de Hipismo) fillies. These samples were collected from 19 animals since birth until 24 months of age. The results showed that the mean values of ALP (alkaline phosphatase) and CK (creatine kinase) were higher between birth and 24 hours of life (FA-1995.50 UI/; CK-189.13UI/L), whereas for LD (lactate dehidrogenase) and GGT (gama glutamiltransferase) the highest values were, respectively, between 3 and 4 days (LD-479.11UI/L) and with 10 days of life (GGT-18.70UI/ L). AP, CK, LD and GGT showed a reduction of the mean values, respectively, until 6 months (FA-323.50UI/L), 20 days (CK-51UI/ L), 19 months (LD-214.00 UI/L) and 4 months (GGT-11.40UI/L) stabilizing with some oscillations. The activity of AST (aspartate aminotransferase) was minimal after birth (AST- 43.38UI/L) increased until the seventh day of life (AST-110.89UI/L) and next it diminished progressively with little oscillations until the end of the study. All enzymes evaluated were influenced by age, particularly in the initial period of life of the animals studied.
