HF biomarkers can be broadly grouped into markers of inflammation (e.g., C-reactive protein, myeloperoxidase), markers of fibrosis and extracellular remodeling (e.g., procollagen, galectin-3, ST2), markers of mechanical strain (e.g., natriuretic peptides), markers of hemodynamic homeostasis (e.g., copeptin, adrenomedullin), and markers of cardiomyocyte injury (e.g., troponins) [6, 50].
Previous studies have also reported association between N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) levels and malnutrition assessed using the subjective global assessment and malnutrition-inflammation score [7, 8] and it was suggested that PEW might have a direct effect on the level of NT-proBNP by affecting ventricular remodeling in HD patients [7].
There are several methods for diagnosing HF, one of which is the use of biochemical markers such as natriuretic peptides.
(3) N Terminal-Pro-Brain Natriuretic Peptide (NT-proBNP) is neurohormones synthesized and secreted mainly by the ventricular myocardium.
Cenderitide is a dual receptor natriuretic peptide and recent positive results in Novartis' PARADIGM-HF trial have shown that the mechanism of action of their ARNI (angiotensin receptor neprilysin inhibitor) can raise the level of endogenous natriuretic peptides by preventing their enzymatic breakdown in chronic heart failure patients.
The physiological hydroelectrolytic balance and the redox steady state in the kidney are accomplished by an intricate interaction between signals from extrarenal and intrarenal sources and between antinatriuretic and natriuretic factors.
Objective: To detect the serum levels of D-dimer and N-terminal pro B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-pro BNP) in patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke (AIS), and to explore the risk factors of AIS.
The current study was planned to determine the effect of percutaneous transvenous mitral commissurotomy (PTMC) on brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels in mitral stenosis patients.
The relationships between cigarette smoking and LV structure and function were investigated using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, brain natriuretic peptide levels, and incident heart failure hospitalization.
