A new method is described for estimation of the prognosis of acute myocardial infarction progress due to temporary decrease in the isoenzymes, i.e. malic dehydrogenase (MDH), aspartate aminotransferase (ASAT), lactic dehydrogenase (LDH), and the decrease in the creatine kinase (CK). It is shown that the time of enzymatic activity is an essential factor. If 120 hours of decrease in enzymatic activity of MDH, LDH, and CK are exceeded, the prognosis of the myocardial infarction deteriorates dramatically.
