Torrey Pines, California (March 25, 2023)
The 17th Annual Biomarkers and Personalized Medicine in Cardiovascular Disease Symposium showcased the latest clinical data, guidelines and evidence related to the clinical application of novel biomarkers in cardiovascular conditions.
Topics covered state-of-the-art application of biomarkers in current standards in the prediction, diagnosis and management of cardiovascular diseases, highly sensitive troponin testing and the evolution of this novel biomarker in diagnosing and managing acute myocardial infarction and other cardiovascular conditions. The use of biomarkers was emphasized as key components of precision medicine in cardiovascular diseases.
The symposium expanded the definition of the biomarker beyond the conventional notion of a protein, or a specific analyte. References to Chat-GPT's definition of the biomarker were the highlight throughout the conference:
"A biomarker is a measurable characteristic or substance in an organism that indicates the presence of a disease, infection, or a particular physiological or pathological process. Biomarkers can be found in various body fluids, such as blood, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid, or in tissues, such as tumors or biopsied tissues.
Biomarkers can also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of a treatment or to predict the likelihood of disease development or recurrence. Examples of biomarkers include levels of specific proteins or enzymes, genetic mutations or variations, and imaging features such as the size and shape of a tumor."
Various evidence-based biomarker data were presented with references from peer reviewed literature that spanned across cardiovascular, endocrine, renal, pulmonary and related diseases. RCE presented its early findings from the normal range FDA study, at the case studies and poster exhibits. This work is accepted to the Biomarkers journal.
RCE, an AI based med tech works towards the early detection of heart attacks. We have re-imagined the way cardiac proteins are monitored in the blood using a non-invasive transdermal technique. The instant reporting of one such protein, cardiac Troponin empowers emergency medicine physicians and cardiologists in the early assessment and appropriate risk stratification of patients presenting with chest pain. We currently are conducting clinical studies and undertaking premarket efforts.
