Early diagnosis is the cornerstone of cardiovascular diseases management. In this study the predictive value of N-Terminal Probrain Natriuretic Peptide(NT-proBNP), High-Sensitivity Cardiac Troponin T (hs-cTnT), Myeloperoxidase (MPO) and Pregnancy-Associated Plasma Protein A (PAPP-A) were investigated in Iranian Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) patients, Unstable Angina (UA) patients, Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) patients and normal subjects . The present study was performed on 35 AMI patients, 35 UA patients, 35 CAD patients and 53 healthy individuals. NT-proBNP, hs-cTnT, MPO and PAPP-A were quantitated by ELISA kits. The cardiovascular patients had significantly higher levels of NT-proBNP, hs-cTnT, MPO and PAPP-A (p<0.05) as compared with normal individuals. The obtained results indicated that the serum levels of NT-proBNP, hs-cTnT, MPO and PAPP-A significantly increased in cardiovascular patients and would be strongly predictive in these diseases.
