Serum cardiac troponin T (cTnT) concentrations are frequently increased in chronic dialysis patients as measured by the first-generation ELISA immunoassay, as is creatine kinase (CK) MB mass in the absence of acute ischemic heart disease. We designed this study to compare four serum markers of myocardial injury [CK-MB mass, first-generation ELISA cTnT, second-generation Enzymun cTnT, and cardiac troponin I (cTnI)] in dialysis patients without acute ischemic heart disease. We also evaluated… CONTINUE READING
