blood enzyme tests

Measurement of the presence and quantities of ENZYMES released from cells damaged by disease processes. Enzymes are released especially from the liver, in HEPATITIS and other disorders, from the heart muscle damaged by MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in a heart attack. The more extensive the area of damage, the higher will be the levels of these enzymes in the blood.
