Abstract

Myocardial infarction (MI) is a term used to
describe a heart attack that occurs when blood flow to the
heart muscle reduced, and plaque builds up in the lining of the
coronary arteries, resulting in insufficient oxygen supply. The
study was conducted on a number of participants, including
100 cases and 70 controls, who were matched for gender and
age. The blood indicators in question were examined using
standard laboratory techniques and equipment. The study
aimed to study the relationship between inflammatory
cytokines, lipid profiles, and transaminase enzyme in patients
48 hours after myocardial infarction. The results indicated
that there are differences between cases and controls for
inflammatory cytokines (IL-8, IL-12, and IFN-Αα). Moreover,
total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and highdensity lipoprotein (HDL) were decreased in cases in
comparison with controls, while triglyceride (TG) was high in
patients after MI. However, patients' aspartate transaminase
(AST) levels were meaningfully higher than in controls
