Term Description

This term refers to point of care (often CLIA waived) testing in a clinical or lab setting for the quantitative measurement of N-terminal-pro B-type Natriuretic Peptide (NT-proBNP) in whole blood. This term was created for, but not limited to, Mitsubishi Chemical Medience's PATHFAST® NTproBNP test kit for whole blood specimens. For NT-proBNP testing on serum or plasma, see LOINC 33762-6.

Part Description

LP31268-3   Natriuretic peptide.B prohormone N-Terminal
ProBNP is the 108 amino acid pro-hormone of BNP (Brain Naturetic Peptide) that is produced mainly in the left ventricle. The prohormone splits into two polypeptides- the biologically active but shorter BNP (77-108) and the longer N terminal (1-76) fragment called NT-proBNP. Commercial assays are available for NT-proBNP because of its usefulness in predicting cardiovascular risk. In one study, it was the single best predictor of survival among patients with the acute coronary syndrome. It also declines with successful treatment of left ventricular dysfunctionand heart failure and is used by some to track the success of such treatment. No commercial assays exist for proBNP (the whole peptide)- though the trade name for one companies NT-proBNP is "proBNP" -- a misnomer. We include proBNP as the a related name for NT-proBNP so that people who call it proBNP will find it in LOINC. Source: Regenstrief Help

Change Reason
The EIA method, which was always intended to cover more than just enzyme-linked immunoassay and whose display name for the long common name has always been Immunoassay, was renamed IA in order to eliminate ambiguity about whether the method has a broader meaning than just enzyme-linked immunoassay. Likewise, EIA.rapid was renamed IA.rapid. These changes were approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.
