This table represents the relevant relationships of reviewers with industry and other entities that were disclosed at the time of peer review. These relationships were reviewed and updated in conjunction with all meetings and/or conference calls of the writing committee during the document development process. The table does not necessarily reflect relationships with industry at the time of publication. A person is deemed to have a significant interest in a business if the interest represents ownership of 5% or more of the voting stock or share of the business entity, or ownership of $10 000 or more of the fair market value of the business entity; or if funds received by the person from the business entity exceed 5% of the person's gross income for the previous year. A relationship is considered to be modest if it is less than significant under the preceding definition. Relationships in this table are modest unless otherwise noted.

ACCF indicates American College of Cardiology Foundation; AHA, American Heart Association; and DSMB, data safety monitoring board.

  • Indicates significant relationship.
