Treatment of heart failure guided by plasma aminoterminal brain natriuretic peptide (N-BNP) concentrations
BACKGROUND There is currently no objective practical guide to intensity of drug treatment for individuals with heart failure. We hypothesised that pharmacotherapy guided by plasma concentrations ofExpand

Early intervention with erythropoietin does not affect the outcome of acute kidney injury (the EARLYARF trial).
We performed a double-blind placebo-controlled trial to study whether early treatment with erythropoietin could prevent the development of acute kidney injury in patients in two general intensiveExpand
