OBJECTIVES Serum deoxyribonuclease I (DNase I) activity has recently been highlighted as a potential diagnostic marker for the early detection of an acute myocardial infarction (AMI). We evaluated whether the serum DNase I activity was associated with the parameters of the left ventricular (LV) remodeling after an AMI. METHODS We measured the serum DNase I activity in 45 patients with an AMI who were admitted to our hospital within approximately 4 h of the onset of their chest pain. We also… CONTINUE READING
