New Data for Abbott's Investigational High Sensitive Troponin Test Shows It May Help Doctors Predict Heart Attack Risk
Date:7/30/2013

is considered the preferred biomarker used to identify suspected heart attacks, because it can detect injury to the heart.1 Abbott's ARCHITECT STAT hsTnI assay can measure very low levels of the protein, which allows doctors to evaluate whether or not patients are having a heart attack within two to four hours after presentation.2 This faster evaluation could allow doctors to reduce the time to diagnosis and treatment by several hours when compared to standard troponin tests.

"This study adds to the clinical evidence confirming the advantages of Abbott's high sensitive troponin test to provide more insight to clinicians about which patients are at greater risk for a future heart attack as compared to contemporary tests," said John Frels, PhD, divisional vice president, Diagnostics Research, Abbott. "This is important information for patient care because it may help doctors focus on the patients at greater risk for appropriate management."

The abstract for this study was selected as the first annual recipient of the Biomarkers of Acute Cardiac Disease Division Outstanding Abstract Award. The committee awarded a grant for outstanding abstract to one of the key authors of the study, Dr. Petr Jarolim (Brigham and Women's Hospital).

The ARCHITECT STAT hsTnI assay is commercially available in Europe and runs on Abbott's fully-automated ARCHITECT family of analyzers.
