cardiac marker

Cardiology An analyte measured in serum that reflects myocardial damage or acute cardiovascular disease–eg, acute MI Examples CK-MB, myoglobin, myosin light chains, troponin. See Cardiac enzymes, CK-MB, Troponin I.

(2005) revealed that isoprenaline injection induced significant increase in the activities of cardiac markers (ALT, AST, LDH and CK) in ISO-treated rats and that might be due to enhanced susceptibility of myocardial cell membrane to the ISO mediated peroxidative damage, resulting in increased release of these diagnostic marker enzymes into the systemic circulation.

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).
