Prognostic role of soluble suppression of tumorigenicity-2 on cardiovascular mortality in outpatients with heart failure

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Soluble suppression of tumorigenicity-2 (sST2), a member of the interleukin 1 receptor family, is increased in mechanical stress conditions and is produced by cardiomyocytes and cardiac fibroblasts. Elevated sST2 level is associated with the prognosis of acute coronary syndrome, pulmonary arterial hypertension, and acute and chronic heart failure… (More)
