OBJECTIVES We examined the analytical correlation N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP). DESIGN AND METHODS Electrochemiluminescence and fluorescence immunoassays were used to measure NT-proBNP and BNP levels, respectively. RESULTS The analytical correlation was satisfactory using the equation:(More)
We examined the analytical correlation between non-radioimmunometric plasma N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and evaluated whether NT-proBNP or BNP was superior in the emergency diagnosis of heart failure and whether this was influenced by age, gender, body mass index (BMI) and renal function.

Type B natriuretic peptide (BNP) versus n-terminal type B natriuretic propeptide in the diagnosis of cardiac failure in the elderly over 75 population The value of BNP is well established in the diagnosis of cardiac failure in cases of dyspnoea in the emergency room in young and, more and more, in elderly subjects. However, there are few studies comparing(More)
We examined the analytical correlation between non-radioimmunometric plasma N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and evaluated whether NT-proBNP or BNP was influenced by age, gender and/or body mass index (BMI).

BACKGROUND Only a few studies based on small cohorts have been carried out on iron status in anorexia nervosa (AN) patients. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of hepcidin in hyperferritinemia in AN adolescents. DESIGN Twenty-seven adolescents hospitalized for AN in the pediatric inpatient unit of Ambroise Paré Academic Hospital(More)
