Serum isoforms of creatine kinase MM isoenzyme in acute myocardial infarction.

Using the electrophoretic method, the changes in the catalytic activities of three CK-MM isoforms in multiple sequential serum samples of 12 patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) were monitored for 3 days after the onset of chest pain. In post-AMI period, MM3 reached a peak (518.6 U/L) first, on the average 14.0 hours after AMI, followed by MM2… CONTINUE READING
