A gender-specific blood-based gene expression score for assessing obstructive coronary artery disease in nondiabetic patients: results of the Personalized Risk Evaluation and Diagnosis in the Coronary Tree (PREDICT) trial.

BACKGROUND Currently available noninvasive tests to risk stratify patients for obstructive coronary disease result in many unnecessary cardiac catheterizations, especially in women. We sought to compare the diagnostic accuracy of presenting symptoms, noninvasive test results, and a gene expression score (GES) in identifying obstructive coronary artery… CONTINUE READING
