Treatment targeted to achieve reduction in N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) improves outcomes in human congestive heart failure (CHF) patients.
This article was published in the following journal.

Myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD) is a cardiac condition commonly found in older dogs. The disease process can lead to heart failure (HF). In HF, an increase of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and ...
Elevated plasma concentration of retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4) has recently emerged as a potential new risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, including hypertension (HT) and coronary artery disea...
Dogs have been proposed as a translational model and used for studying aging, diabetes, and diabetes-related complications in humans. However, no studies have ever compared the glycation of plasma pro...
In vitro effect of chlorambucil on human glioma cell lines (SF767 and U87-MG), and human microvascular endothelial cell (HMVEC) and endothelial progenitor cells (ECFCs), in the context of plasma chlorambucil concentrations in tumor-bearing dogs.
The objective of this study was to investigate a possible mechanism of action of metronomic chlorambucil on glioma by studying the in vitro cytotoxicity and anti-angiogenic effects on glioma and endot...
OBJECTIVE To determine plasma concentrations of enrofloxacin and its active metabolite ciprofloxacin following single-dose SC administration to black-tailed prairie dogs (Cynomys ludovicianus). ANIMAL...
The purpose of this study is to determine the course of NT-proBNP plasma concentrations in the context of confounding parameters in postoperative/posttraumatic critically ill patients with...
For persons with impairments and certain illnesses the use of service dogs may have positive effect. The effects of using these dogs to assist in every day life need to be studied further....
The primary objective of the study is to establish the correlation between NT-proBNP measurements in fresh human whole blood samples and those in plasma samples from the same study subject...
A Prospective Study to Assess the Screening Value of N-terminal Pro-B-type Natriuretic Peptide (NT-proBNP) for the Identification of Patients That Benefit From Additional Cardiac Testing Prior to Vascular Surgery
The purpose of this study is to validate the screening potential of NT-proBNP for the identification of patients scheduled for vascular surgery who would benefit from additional pre-operat...
The aim of the study is to evaluate urine NT-proBNP levels and new Echocardiographic Findings in VLBW infants. The investigators hypothesize that high urine NT-proBNP concentrations are a...
Therapy with two or more separate preparations given for a combined effect.
Gout suppressants that act directly on the renal tubule to increase the excretion of uric acid, thus reducing its concentrations in plasma.
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
Removal of plasma and replacement with various fluids, e.g., fresh frozen plasma, plasma protein fractions (PPF), albumin preparations, dextran solutions, saline. Used in treatment of autoimmune diseases, immune complex diseases, diseases of excess plasma factors, and other conditions.
The ability of the kidney to excrete in the urine high concentrations of solutes from the blood plasma.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
