It is well documented that elevations of serum enzymes used as criteria in establishing the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) often show a pattern of AMI after physical exercise without other clinical signs of myocardial damage. Since a clinical condition resembling AMI sometimes appears after strenuous physical exercise, this study was designed to show if the new, almost heart-specific, isoenzyme creatine kinase MB (CK-MB) would solve the diagnostic problems. Ten well trained volunteers took part in a 26 km jogging race. None of them had any cardiovascular symptoms, but the 'old' cardiac enzymes rose in some of them above the discriminatory levels, whereas CK-MB was below these levels in all cases. It is concluded that CK-MB determination is a valuable diagnostic tool, also in patients who have recently exercised extensively.
