Early experimental and clinical reports on glycogen phosphorylase BB (GPBB) kinetics following myocardial ischemic injury suggested that it could be a useful diagnostic marker for early detection of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). After more than two decades of investigation, there is now overwhelming body of evidence that do not support the use of GPBB measurement in diagnosis of acute AMI in patients presenting with acute chest pain. Currently, GPBB cannot be recommended as a diagnostic marker of AMI either as a stand-alone test or as an addition to (high-sensitive) troponin testing. It should be noted that these considerations apply to the early diagnosis of AMI, not to the prognostic stratification, which is also suggested but it warrants further investigation. The aim of this review is to summarize available evidence of GPBB measurement in early diagnosis of myocardial infarction.
