2]) obtained from the relationship between troponin autoantibody titers and recovery inhibition suggested that the titers explained only -50% of the inhibition phenomenon, and some of the individuals in the "normal recovery" group also appeared to show detectable titers of inhibiting autoantibodies measured with the expressly developed assays [see Fig.
Other sources of negative interference cannot be completely excluded, because according to the coefficient of determination (R Z), only ~50% of the recovery inhibition can be explained by correlation with troponin autoantibody titers (Fig.
