A novel early detection biomarker for risk and severity of cardiac fibrosis
Market NeedCardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for the death of 17.1 million people. Currently patients are assessed for risk of heart disease by simple blood test for biomarkers such as cholesterol, troponin and brain natriuretic peptides. However, the predictive value of these biomarkers and hence the ...
