We evaluated a modified procedure for a commercially available myoglobin radioimmunoassay kit (Nuclear Medical Systems). Within-run and run-to-run precision was acceptable. Normal ranges were established and paralelism studies performed. Clinical usefulness was assessed in 100 consecutive patients admitted to our coronary-care facility. The determinations were done daily, along with creatine kinase and its isoenzymes, and lactate dehydrogenase and its isoenzymes. Fifty of the 100 patients ultimately were shown to have had acute myocardial infarction. Myoglobinemia was present in most of the patients with acute myocardial infarction, but information on its presence was less usefull clinically than was detection of creatine kinase isoenzyme MB.
