Methods to quantify B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal-propeptide (NT-proBNP) in plasma or serum samples are well established. We assessed the analytical performance of the Dimension RxL NT-proBNP method (Dade-Behring). Evaluation of different sample types was carried out. Controls and heparin plasma pools were used to determine the detection(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiac multimarker strategy is recommended by the IFCC, ESC and the ACC for an early risk stratification in non-ST-segment elevation (NSTE) ECG patients with chest pain. A new approach, based on protein biochip array technology, performs simultaneously: cTnI, CK-MB, myoglobin, CAIII, GFBB and FABP using a single chip. METHODS We evaluated the(More)
The body-alarm reaction results from the activation of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, which can lead to physio-psychological phenomena such as an exclusion/occlusion of the sense of hearing. One hypothesis to explain this alteration consists in a hydromechanical dysfunction of the internal ear attributable to antidiuretic hormone. In this study, we(More)
