Sažetak
Elevated serum angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) (EC 3.4.15.1) activity may be found in granulomatous inflammatory conditions such as sarcoidosis, mixed connective tissue disease, nephropathy associated with diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Low enzyme activity indicates good disease prognosis, while 2-fold increase indicates disease progression. Inappropriate sample handling and storage can be the source of substantial variability and cause significant changes of the laboratory results. In order to minimize errors arising from mishandling the samples during handling and storage, it is necessary to standardize sample handling procedures based on the best available evidence and ensure consistent compliance to these.
