Part Description

LP28609-3   Natriuretic peptide.B
Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is an active fragment (1-32) of ProBNP which is produced by myocardial cells. It increases in both right-sided and left-sided heart failure as well as in systolic and diastolic heart failure. Thus, it is used to diagnose and manage heart failure. When a patient is taking recombinant PBN (Natricor), BNP will reflect serum levels. NT-ProBNP, an inactive fragment (1-78) of ProBNP is used to assess the degree of failure. Both of these polypeptides have roughly the same predictive power. NT-ProBNP is commonly called ProBNP. Source: Regenstrief Institute
