Effect of antihypertensive drugs on cardiac enzymes in hypertension with myocardial infarction in NIDDM

  • M. M. Kamble
  • S. M. Vaidya


Enzymology is a diagnostic indicator for myocardial infarction and diabetes in hypertension patients. Therefore the selection of methods for measurement of cardiac enzyme, Aspartate transaminase (AST), Creatine kinase(CK), and isoenzyme of creatine kinase (MB form), determine the effectiveness of antihypertension drug would provide the physician with diagnostic and prognostic clinical evidence.

Key words

Aspartate transaminase (AST) Creatine kinase (CK) Isoenzyme of creatine kinase (MBform) Myocardial infarction (MI) Non insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM)
