* This is not a home test kit. You will need to visit a local lab for testing.

Use:

Support a diagnosis of congestive heart failure (CHF). B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP), also referred to as brain natriuretic peptide, is a member of a family of structurally similar peptide hormones that includes atrial natriuretic peptide.1 BNP is a 32-amino-acid peptide that contains a 17-amino-acid ring structure that is formed as the result of an internal disulfide bond.

BNP is predominantly secreted by the ventricles of the heart in response to increased pressure. BNP acts as a vasodilator and has diuretic and natriuretic properties. BNP suppresses both sympathetic tone and the renin-angiotensin system. These physiologic effects serve to reduce intraventricular pressure and improve the symptoms of congestive heart failure (CHF).

Recommended For:

Confirming diagnosis of congestive heart failure.
