Late cardiac complications in cancer survivors may develop from subclinical myocardial damage. Biochemical correlates of minimal myocardial changes can be analyzed using a commercially available rapid assay. Biomarkers are considered more sensitive markers of subclinical cardiotoxicity than conventional electrocardiographic and echocardiographic methods. The aim of this study was to determine the values of plasma N-terminal pro brain natriuretic peptide (NT-pro-BNP) and cardiac troponin T (cTnT… CONTINUE READING
