CK-MB and CK-MM are examples of: Isoenzymes
When myocardial infarction occurs, the first enzyme to become elevated in the serum is: Troponin I then CK-MB
The most sensitive assay for the measurement of cardiac troponin T is: Chemiluminesence
The flipped pattern of LD isoenzymes that is indicative of an acute myocardial infarction is represented by: More LD1 than LD2
The finding of increased concentration of C-reactive protein in serum is an indication of: Inflammatory response
