Intended Use

Human brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is a hormone that is mainly secreted by the cardiac ventricles. BNP has both diuretic and vasodilator effects, inhibits the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and acts as antagonists of various vasoconstrictors, BNP has been reported to protect the myocardium during heart failure and improve heart disease conditions. Because BNP production increases with elevation of the cardiac workload, it can be used as an index for diagnosing and evaluating the severity of cardiac failure.
