Galectin-3 is an active biomarker found in inflammatory and fibrotic processes, and is a marker of mortality. ST2 is released by stressed cardiac myocytes and also predicts mortality in heart failure and myocardial infarction. Copeptin is a stable arginine vasopressin precursor associated with increased risk of heart failure. It may also be useful to exclude acute myocardial infarction.
