Recent studies have suggested that heart-type fatty acid-binding protein (H-FABP) may detect ongoing myocardial damage involved in the progression of acute coronary syndromes (ACS). This study was prospectively designed to examine whether the combination of H-FABP, a marker for ongoing myocardial damage, and ischemia-modified albumin (IMA), a marker for myocardial ischemia, would effectively diagnose patients with ACS. H-FABP values above 1.5 microg/l can be correctly measured via an ELISA and… CONTINUE READING
