Abstract C5b-9(m) is a specific and sensitive marker for myocardial cell necrosis. The diagnostic value of this marker would be considerably limited in forensic practice if its immuno-histochemical demonstration were hampered by putrefaction or autolysis. We could demonstrate C5b-9(m) immunohistochemically in necrotic myocardium due to infarction up to the 11th day of experimentally induced putrefaction and autolysis, when reliable demonstration of myocardial infarction with hematoxylin-eosin was no longer possible. Under the experimental conditions of this study, no false positive immunohistochemical staining occurred.
