Biomarker is identified in the 2013 ACC/AHA Guidelines for the Management of Heart Failure

Critical Diagnostics : 12 June, 2013  (Company News)
The American College of Cardiology Foundation/American Heart Association Task Force jointly released the organizations's expanded clinical practice guideline for the management of patients with heart failure and has identified Critical Diagnostics' biomarker ST2 "not only predictive of hospitalization and death in patients with HF [heart failure] but also additive to natriuretic peptide levels in [its] prognostic value."


The American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF) and the American Heart Association (AHA) have jointly produced guidelines in the area of cardiovascular disease since 1980. The guidelines are designed to assist clinicians in selecting the best management strategy for heart failure patients, and have been adopted by most US cardiologists and followed by many other countries in developing their practice guidelines.



"Having ST2 included in the 2013 ACC/AHA Guidelines is unprecedented," noted David Geliebter, Chief Executive Officer of Critical Diagnostics. "We only received FDA clearance in December of 2011. No cardiac biomarker that we know of has ever achieved this acceptance so quickly."
