Nanotechnology Could Help Predict Outcomes After Heart Failure

Abstract:
Because heart failure occurs most frequently in the elderly, researchers have attempted to develop models to further predict the risk of adverse cardiac events in this age group. While risk-prediction models have historically produced unreliable results, a new study from the Veteran Affairs San Diego Medical Center in California shows promise.

In this study, a more highly sensitive assay with nanotechnology allowed researchers to quantify troponin measurements in 99% of participants' serum samples.
