Plenary 1: Ischemia Reperfusion

2.3 - Markers of cardiac injury

Presenter: Michael, Marber, , United Kingdom
Authors: Michael Marber


“The cardiac troponins have revolutionised the management of patients with myocardial infarction. However, in order to aid diagnosis the assays have become more and more sensitive. The current assays can reliably detect troponin in the serum of healthy individuals and are increasingly used in general risk stratification in both ambulatory and hospitalised patients. This presentation will focus on the development of the highly sensitive troponin assays and the resultant trade-off between sensitivity and specificity. The case will be made for new assays of acute myocardial injury and data presented for one such candidate, cardiac myosin-binding protein C.”
