New method to spot a heart attack soon after it occurs

Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital, Charlestown, have developed a new method for early detection of a heart attack - metabolite profiling.

Washington, Sept 3 : Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital, Charlestown, have developed a new method for early detection of a Heart attack - metabolite profiling.

To test the method, Robert Gerszten and colleagues conducted a study, in which blood samples were collected before and after a number of patients with the heart condition hypertrophic cardiomyopathy were treated using a medical procedure that creates a small controlled heart attack.

The samples were analyzed using the new method.

Changes in a number of metabolites were observed only 10 minutes after the planned heart attack.

The researchers observed this same signature of changes in a second series of patients undergoing the same procedure and in a number of patients spontaneously having a heart attack.

According to the researchers, no other method can detect changes indicating a heart attack so soon after it has occurred, and hope that their approach can be used to improve early detection of a heart attack.
