The research roundup provides an overview of the past week’s research from Mayo Clinic Laboratories consultants, including featured abstracts and a complete list of published studies and reviews.
The Committee on the Clinical Application of Cardiac Biomarkers (C-CB) of the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry (IFCC) represents international groups from laboratory medicine, cardiology and emergency medicine involved in providing global educational guidance pertaining to the analytical and clinical applications of cardiac biomarkers. For that reason, most of the members are involved with national and international studies and trials pertaining to high sensitivity (hs) cardiac troponins I and T (cTnI and cTnT) (1-3). Although the recently published '2020 European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines for the management of acute coronary syndromes in patients presenting without persistent ST-segment elevation' present some topics very well, the current special report was developed to delineate our specific concerns regarding the ESB guidance for the use of hs-cardiac troponin (hs-cTn) (4).
