Background: Heart-type Fatty Acid Binding Protein (H-FABP) is cytoplasmial protein. It releases in 30 minutes after onset of ischemia and enhances transport of fatty acids from cardiomyocites.

Aim: to examinate the prognostic value of biochemical and clinical markers and their sum in relation to development of lethal result in six months after AMI. Methods and rezults. 189 patients with AMI were examined. They were divided in two groups:1 - NSTEMI n = 36 (9%); 2 - STEMI n = 153 (81%), male 138 (73%). H-FABP was defined in blood plasma with ELISA, it's concentration was measured using normal definitions till 1 ng/ml. During 6 months of follow-up 17 patients (9%) died. About 60 clinical biochemical markers were analyzed using sequental Wald-Genkin's procedure. Following factors in died patients and survivors had significant differences: H-FABP, class of heart failure (Killip), age, glucose level. The curves of sensitivity and specificity were made using method of ROC-analysis and the threshold values were chosen for each parameter. H-FABP had sufficient level of sensitivity 85.7%, but insufficient specificity (49,2%), and such markers as age, heart failure class (Killip) and glucose level had insufficience sensitivity (50,0%; 66,7%; 43,7%) according to prognosis of lethal case. Every parameter was graded in points in relation to the cut-off value and the scale for measurement of prognostic coefficient (PC) using Gubler's method was proposed. Positive value of PC is associated with lethal result in patients with AMI.

Conclusions: The mathematical model including the sum of markers - H-FABP level, age, glucose level, heart failure class (Killip) allows to prognose lethal result in patients with AMI with sensitivity 88% and specificity 78%.
