Panel blood test beats gold standard BNP in heart failure
Combined testing with mass spectrometry-based multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) assays for nine known proteins and 16 novel biomarkers was better than measurement of BNP alone in the study of 400 samples from patients with and without heart failure. The full biomarker panel correctly predicted heart failure in blinded patient samples, with an accuracy of approximately 82%, reported Dr. Claire Tonry from Queen's University Belfast and colleagues.
