Hekmatimoghaddam SH, Sazmand A, Tajik J, Shirazi MR., Serum cardiac troponin I concentrations in the camel and buffalo, Online J Vet Res., 15(6): 514-519, 2011. Serum concentrations of troponin I in dromedary camels or water buffaloes have not been reported. Serum cardiac troponin I was measured in 84 Camelus dromedarius and 45 water buffaloes (Bubalus bubalis). Troponin I concentrations were 0.467±0.09 ng/mL (ranging from <0.2-3.8 ng/mL) in camels and 0.79 ± 0.119 ng/mL (ranging from <0.2-3 ng/mL) in buffaloes. There was no significant difference between sex or age in camel troponin and no correlation between age and troponin levels. Troponin levels were slightly different to those found in other species.
