Creatine Kinase MB (CKMB)
Creatine Kinase MB (CKMB) is a dimeric enzyme and an important mycocardial marker primarily found in the muscle tissue of the heart.

It is clinically used to confirm acute myocardial infarction (AMI) or any other diagnosis of myocardial injury in patients. CKMB levels increase when a patient has had any myocardial damage. According to the Mayo Clinic, CKMB levels can be detected within 3-8 hours of the onset of chest pain and peaks within 12-24 hours. An acceptable CKMB value for a male is ≤737ng/mL The acceptable value for a female is ≤413 ng/mL. CKMB is tested alongside Troponin T and sometimes with a Myoglobin for an overall view of cardiac status.
