One of the pathogenetic mechanisms of development of acute myocardial infarction are immunologic changes of the humoral type. Indices of circulating immune complexes and A. M. G. immunoglobulins in acute myocardial infarction indicate the extension of involvement of the cardiac muscle, development of severe complications for the diagnosis and prognosis of acute myocardial infarction. An unfavourable sign is significant reduction of the level of circulating immune complexes and immunoglobulins in acute myocardial infarction.
