To find a clinical assay for histiocytosis X (HX) diagnosis, measurements were made of both activity and isoenzyme distribution of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH; EC 1.1.1.27) from the blood cells of 6 acute phase and 9 remission patients. A significant increase in the LDH activity measured in the monocytes and lymphocytes isolated from the blood of the acute… CONTINUE READING
