peptide testing is an established tool in diagnosing, prognosticating, and guiding treatment of patients with HF.
The role of natriuretic
peptides in cardiovascular homeostasis is well established.
[4.] Suzukia, Yamazaki T, Yazaki Y The role of the natriuretic
peptides in the cardiovascular system.
peptide levels were similar in patients with normal diastolic function (n=16; NT-proBNP: median, 168 pmol/L; interquartile range, 118 to 289 pmol/L), an impaired relaxation pattern (n=24; NT-proBNP: median, 269 pmol/L; interquartile range, 164 to 778 pmol/L) or a pseudonormal pattern (n=5; NT-proBNP: median, 846 pmol/L; interquartile range, 398 to 2867 pmol/L).
Oxidative Stress and Nephroprotective Actions of Atrial Natriuretic
Increased intracranial pressure is considered to be caused by CSWS, leading to an increase in natriuretic
peptides in the cerebrospinal fluid.

Peptide, and Onset of Coronary Heart Disease and Mortality.
However, they do not show significant changes in natriuretic
peptides diagnostic and therapeutic use.
Seven single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genes within the natriuretic
peptide system were selected from those reported in genome-wide association studies to either affect circulating ANP/BNP concentrations (25) or blood pressure (26) (see Table 1 in the Data Supplement that accompanies the online version of this article at http://www.clinchem.org/content/vol64/issue2).
The amino-terminal propeptide of C-type natriuretic
peptide (NT-proCNP) has mainly been implicated as a paracrine/endocrine factor involved in regulation of endochondral growth (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14, 15).
[USA], August 26 ( ANI ): Recent research shows that elevated levels of natriuretic
peptides in adipose tissue protect against effects of high-fat diet.
