[Practical value of LDH-X determination for the detection of sperm traces].


The examination of 38 stains collected in sexual offences provided spermatozoa-positive, LDH-X-negative results in 4 samples and spermatozoa-negative, LDH-X-positive results in 6 samples. The results suggest that besides the microscopic detection of spermatozoa the demonstration of LDH-X should be performed in medicolegal identification of seminal stains.
