News Coverage from the UK: Cardiac Troponin I Concentration May Predict Mortality

Cardiac troponin I (cTnI) concentration is associated with medium-term mortality in an unselected hospital population, according to a study published online Aug. 7 in Heart.

Jonathan Hinton, from the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom, and colleagues conducted a prospective observational study including 20,000 consecutive in-hospital and outpatient patients who had a blood test for any reason at a large teaching hospital and in whom a high-sensitivity cTnI assay was measured.
