Biomarkers in Acute Heart Failure

Study:

Biomarkers in Acute Heart Failure: An International, Multi-Center Trial Evaluating the Prognostic and Diagnostic Utility of Biomarkers in Patients With Heart Failure Presenting With Shortness of Breath

Rationale:

n/a

Purpose:

Primary Objectives 1. Mid Region pro Adrenomedullin (MR-proADM) is superior to BNP for the prognosis of heart failure (HF) patients and adds incremental value in predicting outcomes for patients presenting to the Emergency Department (ED) with shortness of breath. 2. Mid Region pro A-Type Natriuretic Peptide (MR-proANP) is non-inferior to BNP for the diagnosis of HF in patients presenting to the ED with shortness of breath.
