Cardiac troponin I and T are specific markers of myocardial injury that are widely used for
the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). In acute chest pain without ST-segment
elevation, they are used to differentiate unstable angina from non ST-segment elevation
myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). Recently, troponin assays with higher analytical
sensitivities became available to enable the detection of minor myocardial damage and
identify individuals at higher risk for ACS. As a result of its high tissue-specificity, cardiac
troponin T and I are cardio-specific, highly sensitive markers for myocardial damage. The aim
of this study was to evaluate the new higher sensitive troponin (T and I) in patients with stable
angina and acute chest pain without ST-segment elevation.
Methods: Sixty subjects (mean age : 65.5± 11 years), were included: 20 healthy controls, 20
patients with stable angina, 9 with unstable angina (troponin-) and 18 patients with NSTEMI
myocardial infarction (troponin+). The protocol was approved by the ethic committee of the
University of Liège (Belgium). High sensitive troponin T (hsTnT) determination was realized
on heparin plasma by electrochemiluminescence immunoassay on Modular E (Roche
Diagnostic). Troponin I II (TnI II) is a chemiluminescent microparticle immunoassay for the
quantitative determination of cardiac troponin-I in heparine plasma on the ARCHITECT i
System (Abbott Diagnostic). The lower detection limit of these assays was 0.005μg/L for
hsTnT and 0.01μg/L for TnI II.
Stastistical analysis was performed using t test. P value <0.05 was considered significant.
Results: HsTNT levels were 0.003(0.003, 0.004) [median baseline (1st, 3rd quartile)]ng/ml in
controls, 0.0075 (0.00475, 0.014) ng/ml in stable angina, 0.011(0.006, 0.012) ng/ml in
unstable angina and 0.3715 (0.1795, 1.00725) ng/ml in NSTEMI ACS. TnI II levels were 0
(0, 0.001) ng/ml in controls and in patients with stable angina, 0.07 (0.005, 0.014) ng/ml in
unstable angina and 1.4475 (0.0407, 2.656) ng/ml in NSTEMI.
HsTNT and TnI II levels were significantly increased in NSTEMI as compared to control
subjects, patients with stable and unstable angina. TnI II levels were also increased in unstable
angina as compared to controls.
Conclusion: In our population, TnI II was more sensitive than hsTNT to detect minor
myocardial damage in patients with unstable angina as compared to controls. Therefore,
future studies will have to determine whether TnI II might contribute to better risk
stratification and treatment strategy in this group of patients.
