Serum albumin was 28 g/L (normal 33-48 g/L), serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase 54 U/L (normal 5-40 U/L), serum glutamic pyruvate transaminase 58 U/L (normal 5-40 U/L), and erythrocyte sedimentation rate 74 mm/h.
For example, there are no dates for the introduction of enzyme markers in serum that signal acute myocardial infarction [1954 for serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT), 1956 for lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) isoenzymes, 1965 for creatine kinase (CK) MB, and 1989 for troponins] and liver damage [1956 for serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT)].
