Lactate dehydrogenase isoenzymes in serum during unstable angina

, : Lactate dehydrogenase isoenzymes in serum during unstable angina. Clinical Chemistry 32(8): 1566-1567

Values for total lactate dehydrogenase (LD, EC activity in serum, LD isoenzymes 1 and 2, and the LD 1:2 ratio in 25 patients with unstable angina were compared with the same variables in 25 patients whose angina was stable 24, 48, and 72 h after admission. Mean total LD activity and mean LD-2 activity were found to be within the normal range, both in the unstable angina and stable angina groups of patients. In the unstable angina group the mean LD-1 was significantly higher (p less than 0.01) than in the stable angina group at each time studied. The mean LD 1:2 ratio was also significantly different (p less than 0.001) between the two groups of patients. In the unstable angina group of patients the ratio was increased (0.85, SD 0.09), as in patients with acute myocardial infarction, whereas in the stable angina group of patients the ratio was normal (0.60, SD 0.06). We conclude that a high LD 1:2 ratio, even in the presence of normal total LD activity, may indicate myocardial damage in some patients with unstable angina and could therefore help in the clinical and functional evaluation of patients with unstable angina.
