Fatty-acid-binding protein as a plasma marker for the estimation of myocardial infarct size in humans

British Heart Journal
J F GlatzG J van der Vusse


There are substantial amounts of cytoplasmic heart-type fatty-acid-binding protein (FABP) (15 kDa) in myocardial tissue. The rapid release of FABP into plasma during ischaemia indicates the possibility of using this protein as a biochemical marker for ischaemic myocardial injury. To study the completeness of the release of FABP from damaged tissue in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and the suitability of serial plasma FABP concentrations for estimation of myocardial infarct size. Immunochemically assayed FABP and enzymatically assayed creatine kinase isoenzyme MB (CK-MB) and alpha-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase (HBDH) were determined serially in plasma samples from 49 patients with AMI who had been treated with thrombolytic agents within six hours after the onset of AMI. Previously validated circulatory models and a value of 2.6 h-1 for the fractional clearance rate of FABP from plasma were used to calculate cumulative protein release into plasma. Release of FABP was completed earlier (24-36 h) after AMI than that of CK-MB (50-70 h) and that of HBDH (> 70 h). However, infarct size estimated from the cumulative release of the proteins and expressed as gram equivalents of healthy myocardium per litre of plasma yiel...Continue Reading

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, that can lead to muscular or electrical dysfunction of the heart. It is often an irreversible disease that is associated with a poor prognosis. There are different causes and classifications of cardiomyopathies. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.
