Old diagnostic friends revisited. An evaluation of cardiac enzymes.

Abstract

I n 1954, LaDue et al' first noted rises in serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT) enzyme levels following myocardial infarction. This important observation led to the evaluation of this and other serum enzyme systems as specific and sensitive mdi-cators of myocardial infarction.
