Prognostic Role of Molecular Forms of B-Type Natriuretic Peptide in Acute Heart Failure.


BACKGROUND B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) molecular forms 5-32, 4-32, and 3-32 are known to be present in the circulation of heart failure (HF) patients. This study investigated the prognostic role of circulating BNP molecular forms on risk prediction for patients with acute HF. METHODS BNP molecular forms were measured in plasma using an immunocapture… (More)
