The study group on biomarkers was part of the Working Group on Acute Cardiac Care of the European Society of Cardiology(ESC) and was integrated into the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA) in August 2012.The study group has been restructured in April 2013.
Founded by Prof. Kristian Thygesen, and now chaired by Prof. Bertil Lindhal, this group of experts is focusing on the proper clinical application of cardiac biomarkers including troponins, natriuretic peptides, and inflammatory and thrombotic markers in acute cardiac care.

The event organised by Radiometer Medical Aps and supported by ACCA provided an opportunity to hear some of the most prominent names in the field of cardiac biomarker testing deliver an insight into the latest advances in this critical sector, and how they have been successful.
In addition, the study group will be engaged in several other educational activities during the next two years.
Supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Biomerieux
