For the BARI 2D Study Group: Troponin and Cardiac Events in Stable Ischemic CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE and Diabetes Cardiac troponin concentration is the preferred marker of myocardial necrosis.1 Elevated concentrations of cardiac troponin possess a strong association with a detrimental prognosis in patients with severe coronary syndromes and are used to recognize patients who are likely to benefit from an early on invasive management strategy.2-4 High-sensitivity assays that permit the measurement of suprisingly low cardiac troponin amounts in patients with steady heart disease are now designed for clinical and study use.
Identification of Somatic Genomic Alterations Sequencing was performed on DNA from breast-tumor specimens and matched regular tissue specimens, by using 1 or both of two strategies: tagged-amplicon deep sequencing22 for PIK3CA and TP53 or paired-end whole-genome sequencing . Tagged-amplicon deep sequencing was carried out by means of the Fluidigm Access Array and sequencing on the Illumina GAIIx or HiSeq instruments. Paired-end sequencing was done with the use of the Illumina HiSeq2000 instrument. Applicant mutations and structural variants were confirmed and validated to be somatic by using Sanger sequencing.
