Different NT-proBNP circulating levels for different types of cardiac amyloidosis.

Abstract

AIM Several studies suggest that the N-terminal fragment of pro-brain natriuretic peptide levels are quite different in wild-type transthyretin (TTR)-related amyloidosis (ATTRwt) and mutated TTR-related amyloidosis (ATTRm) compared with immunoglobulin light-chain cardiac amyloidosis. Our aim was to test this hypothesis in a cohort of patients with different… (More)
