Improved determination of prostatic acid phosphatase (sodium thymolphthalein monophosphate substrate).
We have modified a previously described method for determining acid phosphatase, with thymolphthalein monophosphate as substrate, to increase its sensitivity. We assessed effects of serum onExpand

Transferability studies for the AACC reference method and the IFCC method for measurement of alkaline phosphatase activity.
We present the results of measurements of alkaline phosphatase activity from interlaboratory transferability studies conducted by 12 laboratories in five countries. The variability, as demonstratedExpand

Patterns of enzyme activity following myocardial infarction and ischemia.
Biochemical patterns in serum reflect (a) necrotic, and (b) reparative processes in tissues. Elevations of serum creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase, and aspartate aminotransferase are widely usedExpand
