Main results


NT-proSST concentrations were associated with an increased risk of incident CVD and all-cause mortality, after adjusting for traditional CVD risk factors and emerging biomarkers, in a population-based cohort of men and women without a history of CVD. These findings support a possible future predictive role of NT-proSST concentrations.
