For the clinical diagnosis of a myocardial infarction, which enzymes are measured ?

( A ) phosphtases, hexokinase
( B ) elastase, urease
( C ) creatine kinase, aspartate aminotransferase
( D ) serine protease, elastase

1 Answer

Ans: ( C ) creatine kinase, aspartate aminotransferase
Creatine kinase is found mainly in the heart. The level of creatine kinase increases within 3 -12 hours of onset of chest pain, reach peak values within 24 hours and returns to baseline after 48 - 72 hours. Aspartate amino transferase can be found in high levels during myocardial infarction. Hence they are cardiac markers.
