The main aim of this trial is to assess the long-term prognostic value of different types of Factor XIIa in an unselected, single center series of 871 chest pain patients admitted to the emergency unit, employing blood samples collected at admission.
The second purpose of this study is to assess the incremental prognostic value of B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hsCRP).
A third purpose of this study is to evaluate the prognostic impact of the Omega-3 Index which is a measure of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) relative to other fatty acids in the erythrocyte membrane.
