National Study Seeks Earlier Diagnosis of ATTR Cardiac Amyloidosis in Minorities


Researchers at Boston Medical Center (BMC) and Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM), in collaboration with Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC), are leading a national, multi-site study aimed to achieve earlier diagnosis of transthyretin cardiac amyloidosis (ATTR-CM). The National Institutes of Health has awarded a five-year, $7.2M grant to fund the Screening for Cardiac Amyloidosis with Nuclear Imaging in Minority Populations (SCAN-MP) trial.

Led by co-principal investigators Frederick L. Ruberg, MD at BMC/BUSM’s Amyloidosis Center of Excellence and Mathew S. Maurer, MD from CUIMC’s Cardiac Amyloidosis Program, the grant will enable the establishment of an important, community-based cohort of older minority patients with congestive heart failure. A total of 800 participants will be recruited from BMC/BUSM in Boston and the CUIMC, NYP-Allen and Harlem Hospitals in New York City.
