“Creatine kinase isoform changes following Ecstasy overdose”. 
Anaesth Intensive Care. 1997 Apr;25(2):156-9.
The recreational use of stimulant drugs such as amphetamines has become popular at 'rave parties' or 'acid house parties'. There have been several reports of Ecstasy or MDMA (3,4 methylene-dioxymethamphetamine) misuse in the medical literature with complications and even fatalities. We report a patient with Ecstasy overdose, who survived despite severe multiple organ failure and hospitalization for 80 days. The total serum creatine kinase (CK) levels observed were much higher than any case reported so far and the relevance of serumn kreatine kinase isoenzyme and its isoforms are described.
