In a recent study, researchers observed the critical issue of accurately identifying acute myocardial infarction (MI), a major cause of global morbidity and mortality, for assessing pharmaceutical safety and efficacy in conditions like diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Previous real-world data (RWD) MI identification algorithms primarily relied on ICD-9/10 diagnosis codes from hospital records, leaving them susceptible to misclassification and coding errors.

To address this challenge, the researchers leveraged the Standardized Data Collection for Cardiovascular Trials Initiative (SCTI) and the US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) proposed objective criteria for defining MI in the clinical trial (CT) setting. Their primary objective was to develop and validate new algorithms capable of accurately identifying MI events using pooled CT data.

By adapting the clinical rules suggested by SCTI and FDA, these algorithms were designed to improve accuracy and reliability in identifying MI cases. The ultimate goal of this endeavor was to extend the use of these refined algorithms to RWD applications, allowing for more robust research and pragmatic clinical trials.

According to the researchers, if successful, the study would contribute significantly to improving the understanding and evaluation of MI events, thereby enhancing the assessment of pharmaceutical treatments in various therapeutic areas, including diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
