General | Latest Info

Cardiac biomarkers are substances that are released into the blood when the heart is damaged or stress. Measurements of these biomarkers are used to help diagnose acute coronary syndrome and cardiac ischemia, conditions associated with insufficient blood flow to the heart. Tests for cardiac biomarkers can also be used to help determine a person's risk of having these conditions or to help monitor and manage someone with suspected ACS and cardiac ischemia. The root causes of both ACS and cardiac ischemia are usually the buildup of plaque in artery walls and hardening of arteries. This can result in severe narrowing of arteries leading to heart or sudden blockage of blood flow through these coronary arteries. Cardiac ischemia is caused when the supply of blood reaching heart tissue is not enough to meet the heart's needs. When not enough blood gets to the heart, it can cause pain in the chest, shortness of breath, sweating, and other symptoms. Typical angina occurs when coronary arteries have gradually narrow over time. Pain starts when a person is active, making the heart work harder, and is quickly relieved by rest or by drugs that increase blood flow to the heart, such as nitroglycerine. ACS is caused by rupture of plaque that results from atherosclerosis. Plaque rupture causes blood clot formation in coronary arteries, which results in a sudden decrease in the amount of blood and oxygen reaching the heart. A sudden decrease in the supply of blood to the heart can cause prolonged chest pain called unstable angina, often occurring at rest or not relieved by rest or nitroglycerine. When blood flow to the heart is blocked or significantly reduced for longer period of time, it can cause heart cells to die and is called acute myocardial infarction. This leads to death of the affected portion of heart muscle with permanent damage and scarring of the heart and sometimes can cause sudden death by causing irregular heart contractions. Unstable angina and AMI are together called acute coronary syndrome since they are both due to very acute decrease in blood flow to the heart. Symptoms of ACS and cardiac ischemia can vary greatly but frequently include chest pain, pressure, nausea, and / or shortness of breath. Though these symptoms are most often associated with heart attacks and angina, they may also be seen with Non-Heart-related conditions. It is important to distinguish heart attacks from angina, heart failure, or other conditions that may have similar signs and symptoms because treatments and monitoring requirements are different. Cardiac biomarker Tests are order to help detect the presence of ACS and cardiac ischemia and to evaluate their severity. Increases in one or more cardiac biomarkers in blood can identify people with ACS or cardiac ischemia, allowing rapid and accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment of their condition. For ACS, prompt medical intervention is crucial to prevent death and to minimize heart damage and future complications.

Introduction

According to the European Society of Cardiology, American College of Cardiology Foundation, American Heart Association, and World Health Federation Expert consensus document on the third universal definition of myocardial infarction, acute myocardial infarction can be diagnosed in several ways, one of which depends on cardiac enzymes. The pertinent definition is: detection of rise and / or fall of cardiac biomarker values with at least one value above 99 percentile upper reference limit and with at least one of the following: morbidity and mortality associated with acute myocardial infarction are well understood and discussed elsewhere. Give known morbidity and mortality associated with acute myocardial infarction and the importance of early diagnosis and management, above definition places a heavy burden on cardiac enzymes as their elevation alone, along with symptoms of ischemia, is enough to make diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction. The ideal cardiac enzyme or biomarker needs to be highly specific, highly sensitive, and easily detectable as early as possible in the disease process. Several biomarkers have been developed in the past and will be discussed in this article. Cardiac enzymes is a broad term encompassing several intracellular myocyte components that can be found in the serum and measured under certain circumstances such as myocardial ischemia, trauma, myocarditis. In proper clinical setting, elevation in level of enzymes present in the serum is key in diagnosis of myocardial infarction. While troponin is the most commonly used cardiac enzyme for diagnosis of myocardial infarction, others exist and may be helpful in some situations.

Methods

Troponin is a regulatory protein within muscle cells involved with interaction of actin and myosin contractile proteins. Troponin I and troponin T assays are available. Cardiac troponin I is found only in cardiac tissue while cardiac troponin T is expressed to a very small degree in skeletal muscle. Contemporary or sensitive cardiac troponin assays have been available for years. Highly sensitive troponin assays are newer and were first approved for clinical use in 2017. With highly sensitive assays, there is a detectable range of troponin that is considered normal, while this is not the case with older sensitive troponin assays where any elevation is often considered significant. Troponin assays are immunoassays and can give false positives with antibody cross-reactivity, although this is rare. Several troponin assays are available, and levels cannot be compared across assays. Older assays could detect troponin elevations within 3 to 4 hours of myocardial injury and peak at 24 hours. Newer highly sensitive assays detect troponin elevation sooner and vary by assay. Many recommendations based on older assays recommend repeat troponin measurement at 6 to 12 hours, but several strategies now exist with repeat measurement as soon as 2 hours. In most clinical settings, cardiac troponin is the cardiac enzyme of choice, and other enzymes should not be routinely used There are many reasons for this, but ultimately, troponin has been shown to be more specific and more sensitive to cardiac injury. Nearly all false-positive troponins are limited to situations where there is antibody cross-reactivity within testing assay, as troponin is not released from damage skeletal muscle. CK-MB is released from skeletal muscle, and this can lead to falsely positive elevation. Per gram of myocardial tissue, more troponin is present than CK-MB. Creatine kinase is a cytosolic protein involved in mitochondrial phosphate transport. CK exists in three different dimer configurations of two CK isoenzymes, M and B. Prior to the ubiquitous use of troponin, CK-MB was the mainstay cardiac enzyme for diagnosis of myocardial infarction. Creatine kinase is found in all muscle tissues and is nonspecific for myocyte injury; however, CK-MB is relatively specific for myocardial tissue. CK-MB can be found in the serum within 4 to 6 hours of onset of myocardial ischemia; however, it can take up to 12 hours in some patients. CK-MB levels return to baseline within 36 to 48 hours and, therefore, are sometimes still used to assess for reinfarction after intervention. Elevations in CK-MB must be interpreted with caution in situations where skeletal muscle injury or disease is also suspect, as CK-MB is release from damage skeletal muscle. Some institutions will report ratio of CK / MB to CK to ascertain whether elevations in CK-MB are increased to an extent greater than what would be expected with skeletal muscle injury alone; However, these ratios or indexes have not been demonstrated to improve sensitivity or specificity regarding diagnosis of myocardial ischemia. CK-MB levels alone are most helpful in situations where myocardial ischemia is suspect and skeletal muscle injury or disease is not suspect.

Results and discussion

To verify endogenous cross-reactivity of MICT, each cardiac marker probe was incubated with composite cardiac marker samples and applied into strip for testing. Figure Figure8 8 compares the T / C of three T lines. For analysis of the cTnI probe, T / C of T1 was significant, while T / C of T2 and T3 were nearly equal to background intensity, suggesting that cross-reactivity between cTnI probe and CKMB or Myo markers is negligible. This result also shows that non-specific binding of probe to capture antibody is essentially zero. The other two probes had similar results.


Introduction

Troponin is one of the regulatory proteins in muscle tissue. Heart muscle, or myocardium, contains a cardiac-specific type of troponin. In case of myocardial injury and cellular damage, cTn is released from the myocardium into blood. Specific monoclonal antibodies against cTn have enabled development of cTn-specific assays that can measure concentration of cTn in blood. Since first publications on cardiac troponin in 1970s, around 20. 000 scientific reports on this powerful biomarker of myocardial injury have been publish. Over time, cTn assays have improved their analytical performance and become designated laboratory biomarker for diagnosing myocardial injury and myocardial infarction. Finally, larger myocardial insult, more troponin is released into circulation. Consequently, quantitative cTn results also provide prognostic value in support of risk stratification and patient management.

HIGH-SENSITIVITY cTn VERSUS H-FABP

In High-risk Patients requiring AMI rule-out, addition of H-FABP To hs-cTnI at ED presentation, in the absence of new ischaemic changes on ECG may accelerate Diagnostic decision making by identifying up to 40 % of such Patients as Low-risk For AMI on basis of blood tests performed at presentation. When ECG, and H-FABP are combined with hs-cTnT, this multi-marker strategy rules out AMI in fewer patients. Rather than simply reporting sensitivity with 95 % confidence interval for particular combination of H-FABP and hs-cTn, we deliberately, and conservatively, use methodology to estimate optimum combination of thresholds at high sensitivity for AMI. This is important, because at such high sensitivities, even large studies, such as this, will have large confidence intervals which limit general application of results. Our multi-marker strategies utilizing derivation of optimal thresholds for H-FABP, hs-cTn and ECG ie. Thresholds that identify a maximum proportion of negative Patients whilst maintaining > 99 % sensitivity, allow the greatest proportion of Patients to be classified as low risk with acceptable sensitivity for AMI detection at presentation. Use of strategies using pre-specify cut points, including 99 percentile thresholds for either hs-cTn and 99 percentile or ROC-derive thresholds for H-FABP in combination with positive ECG, improved sensitivity for AMI in comparison to 99 percentile thresholds for hsTn and ECG alone, but do not achieve > 99 % sensitivity, consider acceptable target by majority of ED clinicians. Utilizing hs-cTnI LoD threshold in combination with positive ECG results in no false negatives for AMI, but less than 10 % of patients could be classified as low-risk. In contrast, hs-cTnT at LoD threshold in combination with positive ECG, classified 30 % of patients as Low-risk For AMI, which was only slightly less than utilizing the optimized rule-out strategy incorporating hs-cTnT, H-FABP and ECG. Subgroup analysis of our optimized biomarker strategies according to time from onset of symptoms show that classification of Low-risk Patients was not significantly greater in early presenters versus later presenters. A number of studies have evaluated the utility of at presentation AMI rule-out strategies incorporating sensitive or hs-cTn assays in Patients with suspected Cardiac chest pain, but report either unsatisfactory Diagnostic accuracies, or insufficient identification of Low-risk Patients suitable for early discharge. More recently, Shah and colleagues derived a threshold of 5 ng / L For hs-cTnI based on target 99. 5 % NPV in Cohort of Patients without Myocardial necrosis on presentation For outcome of type 1 MI or Cardiac death within 30 days. We choose to use sensitivity For AMI rather than NPV because it is not affected by disease prevalence. Shah et al. Observed sensitivity of 98. 9 % For primary outcome, and proportion of patients with negative test of 47. 5 % in their derivation Cohort.


Introduction

Nearly 30 % of patients admitted to the general intensive care unit have underlying cardiac diseases, and approximately one-half of these 30 % are admitted to the ICU with cardiac problems as the primary cause. The latter group is mainly comprised of patients with acute myocardial infarction, acute heart failure or cardiogenic shock. Pulmonary embolism, sepsis-related cardiac dysfunction and arrhythmias are also commonly found in the ICU. Diagnosis of cardiac problems can be a difficult task in the ICU, partly due to the nonspecificity of clinical signs and symptoms. Prompt treatment can reduce mortality and improve patient outcome, and therefore the value of rapidly identifying problems and assessment of condition cannot be understate. Although the introduction of intensive care echocardiography has made diagnoses easier, diagnoses based on echocardiography alone are not always sufficient and application requires ready availability of skilled operators. For example, while enlarge right ventricle denotes pressure or volume overloading, echocardiography sheds little light on etiology. Proper diagnosis requires incorporation of various clinical information including medical history, physical examination, electrocardiography, chest X-ray scans and, recently, biomarker levels. Biomarkers offer certain advantages over other diagnostic tools. First, biomarkers can help clinicians efficiently formulate differential diagnoses. Second, as biomarker levels often correlate with severity of disease, they can be used to guide therapy. Third, some biomarkers can provide prognostic values. The earliest type of cardiac biomarkers was cardiac enzymes, uses of which were restricted to diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction. Discovery of new cardiac biomarkers and increased sensitivity of assays have extended the boundary of applications, for example, to detection of other cardiac pathophysiological processes such as pump failure and right ventricular pressure overload secondary to pulmonary emboli. The present review summarizes findings of some cardiac biomarkers and examines their usefulness in the ICU.

CONCLUSIONS

Cardiac Troponin assays, which are widely available, differ substantially from each other. Almost all of these are enzyme-link immunosorbent assays in which there is a capture antibody that captures material as well as a tag antibody that labels IT. Most assays have monoclonal antibodies as capture antibodies, that are specific for cTn being measure, either cardiac Troponin I or cardiac Troponin T. In order to increase the amount of protein capture and label, more than two antibodies are used very often. Each assay is different depending on the antibodies that are being used. Moreover, detection methods and calibration also vary. Therefore, one cannot substitute the value of test from one assay for another. Separation of CK into isoenzymes can be accomplished by techniques like electrophoresis, column chromatography, or radioimmunoassay. Clinical laboratories often utilize electrophoresis on agarose gel or cellulose acetate in combination with band quantification by elution of electrophoretic bands, or by either fluorometric or spectrophotometric techniques. Electrophoretically, fraction CK-BB is most mobile, CK-MB is intermediate, and CK-MM is typically neutral. This helps in identification of cardiac-specific CK MB. While testing for myoglobin, it is important to distinguish IT from hemoglobin as well as to measure accurately. Most widely used definitive tests for differentiation and quantification of myoglobin from hemoglobin in biological fluids include simple immunochemical methods, which include immunodiffusion, hemagglutination inhibition, and immunoelectrophoresis, which are dependent upon the fact that specific antisera will react only with its homologous antigen.

4 Coronary Artery Disease.

Ischemic heart disease is caused by accumulation of fatty deposits lining the internal wall of coronary artery and so restricting blood flow to heart muscle. Early recognition of heart disease could save thousands of lives each year. When looking at heart diseases, seven classic symptoms can be recognize: dyspnea: is medical term for shortness of breath. Abrupt onset of dyspnea is often due to heart failure, whereas chronic shortness of breath is more likely to be a symptom of coronary artery disease or valvular heart disease. Palpitations: heart of average person beat about 500. 000 times per week and ordinarily, people are unaware of their heartbeat. Palpitation is awareness of one's heartbeat and is often quite disturbing when it appear. Palpitations occur as irregular or very rapid heartbeats, know as arrhythmias. Syncope: is simply loss of consciousness. The most common Cardiac cause of syncope is irregular heartbeat or arrhythmia. Oedema: is swelling or puffiness of tissue. Swelling is due to retention of water or lymph fluid in cells of tissue. It is a common sign of heart disease, indicating diminishing of pumping of right side of the heart. Cyanosis: is bluish discoloration of skin and mucous membranes. It is caused by too little oxygenated blood flow through surface tissues. Fatigue: Persons suffering from fatigue will start the day with a relatively normal energy level, then become increasingly tired through the day to the point of exhaustion. This is because heart muscle has become weakened and lost its ability to pump enough blood and oxygen for the body to function normally. Angina: is a primary symptom of coronary artery disease. It consists of chest pain caused by Myocardial ischemia, condition in which the amount of oxygen the heart muscle requires exceeds the amount it receive. One can differentiate between stable and unstable angina. Stable angina: appearance of chest pain after physical effort or stress. Unstable angina: frequency and severity of chest pain increases, and attacks may occur during rest or may be provoked by less effort than usual. The underlying cause of the decreasing supply of oxygenated blood is progressive narrowing of open channels of coronary arteries, due to arterioscleroses. Atherosclerosis is a condition in which scattered lesions, plaques or atheromas, appear on the inner wall of the coronary artery. Acute Myocardial infarction occurs in the myocardium when there is a marked decrease in oxygen supply to area of muscle causing a zone of dead or dying tissue. Sudden death results from sudden, abrupt loss of heart function. Over the past thirty years, ability to diagnose heart disease has improved dramatically, largely because of the development of new techniques: electrocardiography, exercise stress testing, radioisotope studies, echocardiography, and Cardiac catheterisation. Another important Diagnostic tool is determination of serum Cardiac markers.


Creatine Kinase

Creatine kinase is an enzyme composed of two subunits, M and / or B. Three different pairs of these units combine to give rise to three different isoenzymes, CK-BB, CK-MB and CK-MM. CKBB is a brain isoenzyme and is present in large quantity in the brain and many internal organs. CKMB is a heart specific isoenzyme and has been the gold standard method for diagnosis of AMI in many laboratories. It exists in large quantity in heart muscle, but is not totally cardiac specific and exists also in skeletal muscles and other tissues. About 15-40 % of total CK activity of heart muscle is due to CK-MB, rest is largely due to CK-MM isoenzyme. CK-MM is skeletal muscle isoenzyme. It has the highest distribution in skeletal muscles. Three isoenzymes are present in varying concentrations in smooth muscle of the colon, ileum, stomach, and urinary bladder. 15 reference range for CK is approximately 80-200 IU / L for men and 60-140 IU / L for women. This is the result of normal turnover of this enzyme in skeletal muscles, and it is influenced by factors like muscle mass and physical work.


Myoglobin

Myoglobin is one of the best available early markers of AMI Within 3 hours after symptom onset. The relationship between AMI and high myoglobin levels was first reported in 1975. 43 Myoglobin starts to increase in blood within 2 hours after symptom onset of AMI, peaks at 6-9 hours, and returns to normal within 24 hours. In a study by Bhayana in 1994, Myoglobin was found to be superior to CKMB mass and TnT for ruling out AMI within a period of 3-6 hours after symptom onset. 44 This early release feature of Myoglobin is attributed to its small size and localisation within cytosol of cell. Several investigators have confirmed a significant role for Myoglobin in early diagnosis of AMI, most promising role being in early exclusion of AMI in patients presenting within 6 hours after symptoms onset. 45 Within this period, overall diagnostic sensitivity and specificity range from 77-97 % and 90-97. 9 % respectively. Variation in sensitivity depends mostly on time of presentation after symptom onset and drops considerably with very early or late presentation to hospital. 11 consistently negative result Within this time interval has such high negative predictive value for ruling out AMI that confident decisions regarding Patient management can be based on it. However, positive results should be used with caution, as there are many situations that could give rise to Myoglobin elevation in the absence of AMI.


Cardiac Troponins

Troponin complex is found on thin filament of all types of striated muscle. Its function is to regulate calcium dependent contraction of muscles. There are three types of troponins: TnT, TnI and TnC. They are designated with letters that refer to the function of troponin protein; TnC bind calcium; TnI inhibits action of enzyme actomyosin adenosine triphosphatase; TnT bind to tropomyosin. 68 They are call isoforms and have pre-fix to indicate muscle type. They are in eg cTnT, sTnT, fTnT stand for Cardiac muscle, slow twitch skeletal muscle, and fast twitch skeletal muscle TnT respectively. Cardiac TnT has more tissue distribution and more free cytoplasmic concentration and is release as complex as other Cardiac troponin T-IC. Cardiac TnI is released more in binary form. 69 Each troponin protein within these muscles has different molecular weight, different amino acids, and amino acid sequence unique to that muscle type. Different isoforms of TnT and TnI share between 40-55 % of amino acid sequence homology.

8.2 Overview of Cardiac Markers

Creatine kinase MB Measurement is not totally specific for MI and there are various causes for elevated CK-MB concentrations other than AMI. 17 Cardiac pathologies like congestive Cardiac failure and arrhythmia lead to elevated CK-MB concentration. Severe Skeletal muscle damage eg acute muscle trauma, Skeletal muscle disorders like myositis, polymyositis, chronic inflammatory and degenerative muscle disorders can lead to CK-MB elevation. In these situations, CK-MB to CK ratio or Cardiac troponins can be used to differentiate Cardiac and Non-Cardiac pathologies. 30 Measurement of CK-MB is a widely accepted assay that is both sensitive and relatively specific for detection of AMI. However, CK-MB is not sufficiently sensitive in the first 6 hours after symptom onset for Early Diagnosis of AMI. 4 Creatine kinase MB isoforms are variants of CKMB isoenzyme, which result from post-synthetic modification of M subunit. They were discovered by weavers in 1972. 31 After ischaemic damage to the heart, CK-MB isoenzyme is released from damaged heart muscle into blood. This isoenzyme is converted into other forms by action of plasma enzyme carboxypeptidase N according to the following reaction: 32 In this reaction, CPN enzyme removes one lysine amino acid from M subunit of release CK-MB2 to produce CK-MB1. CK-MB2 and CKMB1 exist in equilibrium in the serums of normal healthy people. Therefore, measurement of total CK-MB at any point in time is equivalent to 50 % CK-MB2 and 50 % CK-MB1. Most assays that measure CK-MB use a relatively high upper limit of the reference range. Humans differ in their background level of CK-MB and some people may express normal concentrations as low as 1-2 IU / L. Therefore, in the event of myocardial injury, it will require a several-fold increase in marker before it exceeds the upper limit of the reference range. CK-MB, being a relatively large molecule, may take even longer to reach circulation and become important diagnostically. When myocardial injury occurs, there is sudden release and rise of tissue isoforms, ie CK-MB2 compared to plasma form CK-MB1, leading to a rise in ratio of CK-MB2 to CK-MB1. By using CK-MB isoforms effectively, each patient acts as his own control, and release of only a small amount of marker is required to raise the ratio much earlier to a significant level. The Requirement for Diagnosis of AMI is two-fold: 1 increase of CK-MB2 > 2. 6 IU / L and 2 increase of CK-MB2 to CK-MB1 ratio > 1. 7 Creatine kinase MB isoforms are reported to be released within 1 hour after symptom onset and peak at 4 hours. Evidence of AMI can be detected as early as 1-2 hours post-infarction, several hours before total CK-MB reaches Diagnostic level. 33 these release kinetics make CK-MB isoforms potential markers for Early Diagnosis of AMI. The Sensitivity and specificity of CK-MB2 to CKMB1 ratio for Diagnosis of AMI was reported to be 92 % and 95 % respectively within 6 hours of infarction.


Creatine Kinase

CK enzymes are widely distributed and there are various causes of elevated total CK in the absence of myocardial injury. 17 Haemolysis leads to release of adenylate kinase enzyme, which interferes with assay and causes false elevation of total CK activity. Various forms of skeletal muscle injury can lead to increased CK activity, including strenuous exercise, intramuscular injection, rhabdomyolysis, burns, and trauma. Chronic muscle diseases like polymyositis, dermatomyositis, and myopathy can all lead to increased concentrations of CK. Total CK activity is a very sensitive indicator of injury to skeletal muscles. Drugs like cocaine and alcohol can also raise CK concentrations to abnormal values, presumably due to associated myopathy that can occur with use of these drugs. Neurological conditions like myasthenia gravis also elevate total CK activity. Other miscellaneous conditions including pregnancy, hypothermia, and sepsis can increase total CK concentrations. 18 in many of these situations, activity of CK-MB is also increase, giving a ratio of CK-MB to CK that remains below the 6 % cut-off point required to differentiate between skeletal muscle injury and cardiac muscle injury. 19 Measurement of CK is a relatively cheap assay that is widely available. For this reason, total CK Measurement will probably continue to be used as a marker for myocardial injury especially in situations such as: 1 absence of cTnI, cTnT, and CK-MB assays; 2 patients with unequivocal ECG diagnosis of MI where Non-specific marker such as CK can be used to confirm diagnosis, monitor progress of patient in hospital and to gauge infarct size.

Creatine Kinase-MB

Creatine kinase MB isoforms are reported to be released within 1 hour after symptom onset and peak at 4 hours. Evidence of AMI can be detected as early as 1-2 hours post-infarction, several hours before total CK-MB reaches Diagnostic level. 33 these release kinetics make CK-MB isoforms potential markers for Early Diagnosis of AMI. The Sensitivity and specificity of CK-MB2 to CKMB1 ratio for Diagnosis of AMI was reported to be 92 % and 95 % respectively within 6 hours of infarction. 34 During this time interval, total CK-MB mass or activity would just be approaching the upper limit of the reference range. One study reported a sensitivity and specificity of 95. 7 % and 93. 9 % respectively with high positive predictive value and high negative predictive value within 6 hours of infarction. A total of 114 out of 118 Patients with AMI were identified using CK-MB isoforms within 6 hours. The sensitivity and specificity of conventional CK-MB during this time interval were 48 % and 94 % respectively. 35 Seventeen Patients WHO were discharged from emergency department fulfil criteria for Diagnosis of AMI using CK-MB isoforms. The test was also positive in patients with hypothyroidism and rhabdomyolysis. 35 these findings were also substantiated by other studies. 36 some investigators however, have questioned the value of CK-MB isoforms for Early Diagnosis of AMI. Study by Laurino et al. In 1996, showed no difference between CK-MB isoforms and conventional CK-MB isoenzyme at 6 hours after symptom onset. 37 Another study by Bhayana et al., Using comparison between CK-MB mass, CKMM3 to CK-MM1 ratio, and CK-MB2 to CK-MB1 ratio found no significant advantage of isoforms over CK-MB mass for Diagnosis of AMI within 6 hours.
