Large-scale profiling of blood proteins identifies new markers of heart damage

A new report published online in the American Heart Association journal Circulation describes the successful measurement of changes in blood proteins at a previously unattainable scale. The results revealed a large number of proteins that increased significantly soon after a heart attack—some that are well-known markers of myocardial damage but many that are completely new. This proof-of-principle study demonstrates that comprehensive protein profiling to diagnose and treat human health and disease is on the horizon.
