This is in contrast to creatine kinase MB or myoglobin for which multiple measurements are required and whose values are affected by thrombolysis.
More than a half of the positive results or increased levels of 4 of 7 minimum required cardiac markers (cardiac troponin I, creatine kinase MB, myoglobin, C-reactive protein, soluble intracellular adhesion molecular protein-1, interleukin-1 beta, fatty acid binding protein) indicate the risk of development of cardiovascular accidents and the need for emergent medical care.
Hazards of running a marathon: Creatine kinase MB can be raised without myocardial infarction.
Key features of the TCPP included use of standard World Health Organization criteria and 8-hour total creatine kinase (CK) and creatine kinase MB (CK-MB) mass testing for up to 1 or 2 days at the physician's discretion.
Sensitive, rapid assay of subforms creatine kinase MB in plasma.
It detects changed levels of an enzyme (creatine kinase MB) produced by the heart.
Use of other cardiac markers in Italy was somewhat different from the CARMAGUE study: creatine kinase MB isoenzyme (CK-MB) mass was used by 20.2%; myoglobin by 9% (7% together with CK-MB mass); obsolete markers, such as aspartate transaminase, lactate dehydrogenase, CK-MB activity, and CK, by 8% of responders, mainly in local laboratories but with a substantial decrease compared to previous 40% in the 2005 survey (3).
Troponin is a more cardiac-specific marker than creatine kinase MB fraction, and once troponin levels become elevated they stay high for several days.
In addition, laboratories continue to offer creatine kinase MB activity, a test known to be methodologically inadequate, as well as aspartate transaminase and lactate dehydrogenase.
Carboxyhemoglobin level only significantly correlated with QT intervals (r=-0.288; p=0.019), troponin T (r=-0.297; p=0.007), and creatine kinase MB levels (r=0.262; p=0.020).
Creatine kinase MB was increased in the patients with AMI and not in the patients with unstable angina pectoris (Table 1).
