BACKGROUND: Apoptosis causes myocardiocyte loss during and after myocardial infarction. Therapeutic approaches designed to arrest apoptosis would be a significant new development in the recovery of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). In order to examine apoptotic markers in the circulation, serum levels of p53 and cytochrome c were assessed in patients with AMI. METHODS: Blood samples were taken on admission (before initiation of therapy) and on the 3rd and 7th days of hospitalization. Serum levels of p53 and cytochrome c were measured by enzyme-linked immunassay. RESULTS: The serum level of p53 was higher in AMI patients on admission compared to the control group. A time-dependent decrease was observed in the serum level of p53, but there was no significant change in the serum level of cytochrome c during therapy. CONCLUSIONS: p53, but not cytochrome c, appears to have potential as a biomarker for reporting on apoptosis following myocardial infarction.
