Patient characteristics and S100A1 immunostaining results in 10 human heart samples of group 3
Case Sex Age (years) Duration of symptoms Postmortem interval (h) Coronary atherosclerosis (% of narrowing) loss of S100A1
1 M 59 1 h 36 IV ++
2 M 22 ? 19 IV +
3 M 55 30 min 24 IV ±
4 M 62 45 min 24 III +
5 M 68 2 h 30 IV ++
6 M 58 2.5 h 10 III ++
7 F 64 1 h 48 IV +
8 M 35 1 h 72 IV +
9 M 44 3 h 42 III ++
10 M 48 30 min 24 IV ±

Grade of coronary atherosclerosis: Grade I: 0–25% of narrowing; Grade II: 25–50%; Grade III: 50–75%; Grade IV: >75%.

Loss of staining is scaled as: massive loss (++); patchy loss (+); loss in a few disseminated cells (±).
