New Data Suggests Abbott's High Sensitive Troponin Test May Help Doctors More Accurately Diagnose Heart Attacks in Women

en, potentially reducing inequalities in the treatment and outcomes, and enabling everyone to receive the best care."

When completed in 2016, this study will include more than 25,000 patients across 10 centers in Scotland, making it one of the largest studies to evaluate the impact of high sensitive troponin tests on patient care. The study was funded by a special project grant from the British Heart Foundation with Abbott providing the ARCHITECT STAT hsTnI assay.

"While Abbott's high sensitive troponin test benefits both men and women with earlier detection of heart attacks, the potential to increase the diagnosis among women is especially important," said John Frels, PhD, divisional vice president, Diagnostics Research, Abbott. "This is the first time we have seen a test that can provide this kind of detailed information to doctors and has the potential to aid doctors with improving the odds of survival for women with heart attacks."

The ARCHITECT STAT hsTnI assay is commercially available in several countries in Europe, as well as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Brazil and runs on Abbott's fully automated ARCHITECT family of analyzers. The test is currently for research-use only in the United States.

Women and Cardiovascular Disease
The most common heart attack symptoms in women is some type of pain, pressure or discomfort in the chest.[5],[6] Out of the 16.5 million cardiovascular deaths that occur globally each year, half are among women. In fact, heart attacks and strokes are responsible for twice as many deaths in women as all cancers combined.[7] One study shows that women younger than 55 who had a heart attack were more likely to be misdiagnosed than men of the same age.[2]
