CK-MB ELISA is for the direct quantitative determination of CK-MB by enzyme immunoassay in human Serum.
CK-MB is an 84,000 molecular weight enzyme that represents a significant fraction of the creatine kinase present in myocardial tissue. CK-MB is also present in a variety of other tissues, albeit at much lower levels. The
appearance of CK-MB in serum, in the absence of major muscle trauma, may be indicative of cardiac damage and thus, myocardial infarction. Furthermore, the temporal pattern of CK-MB release following an infarction
is important. Thus, a CK-MB value which shows no significant change overtime is not confirmatory of myocardial infarction. Assessment of CK-MB has been reported to be useful in determining the efficacy of reperfusion
after acute coronary thrombosis.
