Biomarker panel for Predicting Patient Response to Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy
Inventors have identified a specific and unique set of biomarkers that can be developed into a point of care (POC) diagnostic to predict those patients with a high probability of responding to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Biomarkers have been identified to support the clinical decision of whether CRT will be a meaningful course of trea...

Biomarkers for Detecting Diastolic Heart Failure
The inventors have developed a panel of biomarkers, including various matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and tissue inhibitor matrix metalloproteinases (TIMPs), which identifies patients with early-stage changes that are indicative of heart failure. These biomarkers can be detected and measured by performing a simple, point-of-care blood test and pro...

Predicting Left Ventricular Dilation following Myocardial Infarction by Protease and Protease Inhibitor Profiling
Technology: This invention relates to a method of predicting diastolic heart failure in a patient, by identifying, from their body fluid, a profile of MMPs and TIMPs that is associated with the development of left ventricular dilation (LVD). This biomarker panel can identify these patients shortly (1-5 days) after their infarct occurs.Overview:Worl...

Plasma Biomarkers for Predicting Recurrence of Atrial Fibrillation Following Cardioversion
The inventors have developed a panel of biomarkers, including various matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and tissue inhibitor matrix metalloproteinases (TIMPs), which can determine patients at risk for recurrent atrial fibrillation (AF). These biomarkers can pre-emptively detect treatment failure for cardioversion activities. These biomarkers can be ...

Assessing Left Ventricular Remodeling via Temporal Detection and Measurement of microRNA in Body Fluids
This invention provides a method of assessing cardiac disease including thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) and left ventricular (LV) remodeling by measuring the levels of 5 microRNAs (miRs) in a body fluid such as plasma or serum, or in cardiac and aortic tissue. miRs are small noncoding RNAs that recognize and bind to mRNA and inhibit protein translat...
