Answer

In the future, a combination of levels of troponin (a biomarker of myocardial necrosis), N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) (an indicator of elevated left ventricular end-diastolic pressure and wall stress), and C-reactive protein (CRP) (an estimate of extent of systemic inflammation) may prove useful for predicting the outcome of patients with ACS.
