Aneta Aleksova, associate professor of Cardiovascular Diseases at UniTS, received the second research prize at the European Society of Cardiology's (ACVC-ESC) 'Acute Cardiovascular Care 2024' Congress, which brought together cardiologists from intensive care cardiology units in Athens.

The unpublished paper, entitled 'Increased amyloid-beta values predict mortality during long-term follow-up in patients with acute myocardial infarction, both STEMI and NSTEMI', was selected as one of the four best overall and presented at the Award session of the Congress, coming second place and earning the distinction of most scientifically original work.

The study on the predictive value of beta amyloid peptide on the mortality of patients with acute myocardial infarction was mostly carried out by the Molecular Cardiology Laboratory team (Dr. Alessandra Lucia Fluca and Dr. Milijana Janjusevic), coordinated by Prof. Aneta Aleksova herself, within the ASUGI Cardiology Complex Structure, directed by Prof. Gianfranco Sinagra.

The prestigious award is an acknowledgement of the research activity resulting from a national and international collaboration: in particular, the significant contribution of professors from the Department of Medical, Surgical and Health Sciences (DSM) of the University of Trieste - including Prof. Gianfranco Sinagra (Cardiovascular Apparatus Diseases), Prof. Stefano D'Errico (Legal Medicine) and Prof. Giulia Barbati (Medical Statistics) - and Prof. Antonio Paolo Beltrami of the University of Udine should be emphasised.

International cardiovascular experts, such as Prof. Maria Marketou from the University of Crete, Heraklion (Greece) and Dr. Donna Zwas from the Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem (Israel), are also to be thanked for their involvement in the study.

Aleksova received further recognition by placing three other research papers, presented as moderated posters, among the best 14 of the Congress, which was open to scientific contributions from all over the world.

Thanks to the awards received by the cardiologist and DSM lecturer, the University of Trieste was the only Italian university to be represented among the winners of the research prizes and the best moderated posters.
