PURPOSE: The objective of the study was to establish the difference in the exercise response profile of the enzymes lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), lactate dehydrogenase isoenzyme 1 (LDH-1), creatine kinase (CK), and creatine kinase polypeptide subunit MB (CK-MB) after a 12-wk cardiac rehabilitation exercise program. METHODS: Nineteen male nonblockade recent postmyocardial infarction patients (PMIP), aged 60.7 +/- 6.5 yr, performed a graded exercise test on a motorized treadmill until volitional cessation or reaching any of the American College of Sports Medicine criteria. After this, a 12-wk exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation program was adopted at a frequency of 3x wk-1. Each subject was then retested using the same protocol and intensity. Blood samples were collected by venipuncture from the antecubital vein into Vacutainer tubes preexercise, immediately, postexercise, and 24 h later. The blood samples were then centrifuged to obtain serum before being transported to the laboratory for enzymatic analysis by conventional methods. RESULTS: a) a 12-wk cardiac rehabilitation exercise program had no influence on the serum activities of enzymes at rest; b) the same exercise reduced the enzyme activity level after training; and c) LDH and CK values returned to normal faster after the program. CONCLUSIONS: These findings provide further evidence for the benefits of exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation and demonstrate that an exercise test provokes a temporary serum enzyme response, which does not reflect myocardial damage.
