AIMS: We investigated whether myeloid-related protein 8/14 complex (MRP8/14) expressed by infiltrating monocytes and granulocytes may represent a mediator and early biomarker of acute coronary syndromes (ACS). METHODS AND RESULTS: Immunohistochemistry of coronary thrombi was done in 41 ACS patients. Subsequently, levels of MRP8/14 were assessed systemically in 75 patients with ACS and culprit lesions, with stable coronary artery disease (CAD), or with normal coronary arteries. In a subset of patients, MRP8/14 was measured systemically and at the site of coronary occlusion. Macrophages and granulocytes, but not platelets stained positive for MRP8/14 in 76% of 41 thrombi patients. In ACS, local MRP8/14 levels [22.0 (16.2-41.5) mg/L] were increased when compared with systemic levels [13.4 (8.1-14.7) mg/L, P = 0.03]. Systemic levels of MRP8/14 were markedly elevated [15.1 (12.1-21.8) mg/L, P = 0.001] in ACS when compared with stable CAD [4.6 (3.5-7.1) mg/L] or normals [4.8 (4.0-6.3) mg/L]. Using a cut-off level of 8 mg/L, MRP8/14 but not myoglobin or troponin, identified ACS presenting within 3 h from symptom onset. CONCLUSION: In ACS, MRP8/14 is markedly expressed at the site of coronary occlusion by invading phagocytes. The occurrence of elevated MRP8/14 in the systemic circulation prior to markers of myocardial necrosis makes it a prime candidate for the detection of unstable plaques and management of ACS.
