New Troponin T Test Predictive in Stable CAD

In patients with stable coronary artery disease, higher levels of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) independently predicted poorer outcomes, researchers found.
After adjustment for other risk predictors, including clinical risk factors, baseline cardiac structure and function, N-terminal portion of the pro-hormone of brain-type natriuretic peptide, and C-reactive protein levels, each doubling in hs-cTnT level was associated with a 37% higher rate of cardiovascular events (HR, 1.37 [95% CI, 1.14 to 1.65], P=0.001).
