Overview

Biomarkers — which may be enzymes, hormones, biologic substances, or other markers of cardiac stress and malfunction — appear to have growing clinical importance in heart failure.

This issue discusses the current and potential future role of biomarkers and includes articles that explore individual biomarkers in depth.
