Abstract

To determine whether plasma levels of homocyst(e)ine are affected by the acute phase response, we studied 10 subjects serially after acute myocardial infarction. Our data indicate that measurement of homocyst(e)ine in patients with myocardial infarction should ideally be deferred for 7 days if spuriously low levels are to be averted.
