China Food and Drug Administration Clears Critical Diagnostics's Presage ST2 Assay for Clinical Use

Critical Diagnostics announced that the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) has cleared the Presage ST2 Assay for clinical use. This follows news that ST2 has been included in the coveted Chinese Heart Failure Guidelines. In a rigorous multivariate analysis involving over 1,500 Chinese heart failure patients, those with the high levels of ST2 were at over 5 times the risk for all-cause death or cardiac transplantation within 30 days, in comparison to patients with the lowest ST2 levels. Moreover, ST2 levels were significantly elevated among patients with adverse events across all time periods examined over a 3-year follow up period. ST2 is a soluble protein expressed by the heart in response to disease or injury. It is reflective of ventricular remodeling and cardiac fibrosis associated with heart failure. ST2 is not adversely affected by confounding factors such as age, body mass index and impaired renal function. Unlike many other cardiac biomarkers, ST2 levels change quickly in response to changes in the patient’s condition—thus helping physicians make informed decisions on an appropriate course of action to take and, if needed, to quickly adjust care.
