The Committee on the Clinical Application of Cardiac Biomarkers (C-CB) of the IFCC represents international groups from laboratory medicine, cardiology and emergency medicine involved with providing global educational guidance pertaining to the analytical and clinical applications of cardiac biomarkers. Although the recently published "2020 European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines for the management of acute coronary syndromes in patients presenting without persistent ST-segment elevation" are extremely useful, our presentations will delineate specific concerns regarding the guidance for the use of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin. The concerns we will address are relevant to the international laboratory medicine community

Coronavirus disease 2019, abbreviated to COVID-19, is an emerging global pandemic caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). As the number of individuals infected with COVID-19 continues to rise globally and healthcare systems become increasingly stressed, it is clear that the clinical laboratory will play an essential role in this crisis, contributing to patient screening, diagnosis, monitoring/treatment, as well as epidemiologic recovery/surveillance. This guide aims to organize relevant available information on laboratory screening, testing protocols, diagnosis, and other general information on COVID-19 for laboratory professionals, including links to helpful resources and interim guidelines. It will be continually updated as new guidelines and literature become available.

Scam messages2020-12-10T16:26:16Z /ifcc-news/20-12-09-scam-messages/ IFCC Office The email messages (and websites) look official enough that they deceive many people into believing that they are legitimate. Believing that these emails are legitimate, unsuspecting people often respond to the email's requests for their credit card numbers, passwords, account information, or other personal information.

Never respond to requests for personal information via email. Legitimate organizations will never ask for passwords, credit card numbers, or other personal information in an email.  If you receive an email requesting this kind of information, DO NOT RESPOND, DO NOT REPLY, DO NOT CLICK ON LINKS OR IMAGES, and DO NOT OPEN ANY ATTACHMENTS with the message.  If you think the email is legitimate, contact the company through their official contacts to confirm. Updating your systems with good security software can help defend data, users, systems, and companies from a wide range of risks.

Remember that the IFCC never requests money or credit card numbers, passwords, account information, or other personal information.
