An immunoluminometric assay for cardiotrophin-1: a newly identified cytokine is present in normal human plasma and is increased in heart failure.


Cardiotrophin-1, a member of the interleukin-6 related cytokine family which acts via the glycoprotein 130 signalling pathway, may be involved in the process of ventricular remodelling. Its presence in human plasma has never been reported. We have devised a non-radioactive immunoluminometric sensitive and specific assay for CT-1 based on a competitive… (More)
