Se, Zn, Mg, Ca, K, cholesterol, and creatine kinase concentrations in men during the 12 days after an acute myocardial infarction

Clin Chem. 1987 Jan;33(1):21-3.

Abstract

We determined concentrations of selenium, zinc, magnesium, calcium, potassium, total and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and total creatine kinase (EC 2.7.3.2) in plasma (P) and (or) erythrocytes (E) of 32 men at the time of hospital admission for acute myocardial infarction and then on subsequent days 2, 3, 6, 10, and 12. During these 12 days, only P-selenium and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations remained unchanged. For the other variables, individual comparison of means indicated the dates of significant changes in concentration (p less than 0.05).
