Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are one of the the primary causes of morbidity and mortality worlwide. Therefore, more accurate Blood cardiac biomarkers (CB) are needed for a correct handling of patients, at the diagnostic and prognostic level. CVDs are a myriad of diseases with different molecular mechanisms, so it is important to have CBs specific for each pathology.
Biomarkers are a significant tool to better identify high-risk individuals, to diagnose disease conditions promptly and accurately, and to efficiently prognose and treat patients with disease. Circulating biomarkers, such as miRNAs, have been used in other fields (e.g. Oncology), but their use in clinical practice for CVD patients is still scarce.
