Objective: To detect the serum levels of D-dimer and N-terminal pro B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-pro BNP) in patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke (AIS), and to explore the risk factors of AIS.
The current study was planned to determine the effect of percutaneous transvenous mitral commissurotomy (PTMC) on brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels in mitral stenosis patients.
[USA], August 26 ( ANI ): Recent research shows that elevated levels of natriuretic peptides in adipose tissue protect against effects of high-fat diet.
Weight gain and obesity have been associated with increased expression of natriuretic peptide receptors-C, in adipose tissue and increased degradation of natriuretic peptides [37].

The concentrations of natriuretic peptides are elevated in patients on dialysis.
Plasma brain natriuretic peptide levels indicate the distance from decompensated heart failure.
Several experimental data show that hypoxia is an independent factor that regulates the synthesis and release of natriuretic peptides. It has been reported by Chun et al.
Traditionally, three different groups of biomarkers have been identified: (1) laboratory tests, such as natriuretic peptides (NPs) and troponins are defined as "laboratory or molecular biomarkers," (2) those related to signal, imaging, and functional tests are defined as "functional biomarkers" and (3) those related to genetic polymorphisms and other genomic tests are defined as "genetic biomarkers." In this sense, an integrate approach appears mandatory to establish early diagnosis and to optimize the outcome.
