: In recent years, there has been growing interest in the risk stratification for heart failure, and the use of multiple biomarkers to identify different pathophysiological processes associated with this condition. One such biomarker is soluble suppression of tumorigenicity-2 (sST2), which has shown some potential for integration into clinical practice. sST2 is produced by both cardiac fibroblasts and cardiomyocytes in response to myocardial stress. Other sources of sST2 are endothelial cells of the aorta and coronary arteries and immune cells such as T cells. Indeed, ST2 is also associated with inflammatory and immune processes. We aimed at reviewing the prognostic value of sST2 in both chronic and acute heart failure. In this setting, we also provide a flowchart about its potential use in clinical practice.

Abstract

: In recent years, there has been growing interest in the risk stratification for heart failure, and the use of multiple biomarkers to identify different pathophysiological processes associated with this condition. One such biomarker is soluble suppression of tumorigenicity-2 (sST2), which has shown some potential for integration into clinical practice. sST2 is produced by both cardiac fibroblasts and cardiomyocytes in response to myocardial stress. Other sources of sST2 are endothelial cells of the aorta and coronary arteries and immune cells such as T cells. Indeed, ST2 is also associated with inflammatory and immune processes. We aimed at reviewing the prognostic value of sST2 in both chronic and acute heart failure. In this setting, we also provide a flowchart about its potential use in clinical practice.
