1. Which one of the listed substances has the following characteristic serum changes following a myocardial infarction: levels begin to increase 4 to 6 h after the onset of chest pain, reach maximal serum concentration in about 12 to 24 h, and remain elevated for about 7 to 10 days?
a. AST (SGOT)
c. LDH (with isotype LDH1 greater than LDH2)
d. Troponin I
2. Which of the following scan will selectively label the infracted area if the patient has MI?
c. Technetium-99 PYP
d. MUGA scan
3. The presence of lipoprotein(a) elevated is also seen. The possible reason for Lp (a) being a risk factor is related to the fact that lipoprotein(a) has kringle regions, which are regions that have structural homology with
a. Cardiolipin, and this homology increases the formation of clots on cardiac valves
b. Plasminogen, and this homology decreases the ability to clear thrombi
c. Lipoprotein lipase, and this homology decreases the ability to metabolize chylomicrons
d. Fibrinogen, and this homology increases the formation of fibrin thrombi

1. Troponin I
