Monitoring increased plasma unbound free fatty acid (FFAu) concentrations has been proposed as a biomarker for myocardial ischemia. In the current study, 30 acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients presenting in the emergency department, with chest pain within 12 h of onset, were clinically evaluated along with serial cardiac troponin I (cTnI) and FFAu(More)
Circulating total free fatty acid (FFA) levels are elevated early in myocardial infarction (MI) and have been associated with an increase in mortality. We investigated the association of serum unbound FFA (FFAu) levels with mortality in patients presenting with ST-segment elevation MI in the Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction II trial. The Thrombolysis(More)
The empirical findings of this study challenge the premise that stayers in a population, historical or otherwise, capture the changes over time that occurred in populations as a whole. Systematic differences between stayers and movers occur and result in differences in ages at vital events. This paper aims to show how two kinds of differences can be(More)
Optimal treatment of patients who present with chest pain is predicated on accurate identification of those patients with a cardiac etiology of their discomfort. Serial troponins and electrocardiograms are very sensitive for the detection of myocardial infarction but they are insensitive for the detection of ischemia. There are many analytes that are being(More)
