Using a group of nearly 23,000 individuals in four community-based longitudinal cohorts, the authors studied those who developed heart failure (HF) with either preserved (633) or reduced (841) ejection fraction (EF).  HF with reduced EF was more strongly associated with natriuretic peptide, troponin, and C-reactive protein than was HF with preserved EF.
