creatin phosphokinase ( ref. to the non-cardiac fraction of the enzyme)


Explanation:
With the correct English name of the enzyme you may wish to search medical articles for the details. The creatin phosphokinase test is also called CPK. In the URL below you will find reference to several articles of Dr. Ramanathan, such as:
Vallejo M, Ramanathan S, Ward S, Mandel G. Postpartum creatin phosphokinase and its musclebrain isoenzyme elevation and transient Q-wave in a patient with idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis. Int J Ob Anesth, 1999; 8:131-134.

Explanation:
The complete translation should look as follows:

Tem sido registados aumentos dos niveis da creatina fosfoqinase
(atribuidos a fraccao nao cardiaca da enzima)
=

The cases of increase of the creatine phosphokinase (which are attributed to a non-cardiac fraction of the enzyme) were registered (were reported).

It might be a part of instruction to remedy, or a part of article where they explain some lateral effects of the treatment (therapy).
