Abstract: The geochemical hypothesis on endomyocardial fibrosis (EMF) links causation of the disease to increased levels of cerium in the heart. Since cardiac tissues are not easily accessible from patients, we explored whether cerium can be detected in the serum using neutron activation analysis (NAA). Cerium levels in serum of EMF patients were significantly elevated (p < 0.05) compared to controls.
