BACKGROUND: Metabolic profiles have been shown to provide prognostic information in patients with heart failure (HF). Galectin-3 (Gal-3), indicating cardiac fibrosis, is a documented biomarker of prognosis in HF. It is unknown whether metabolic profiles provide prognostic value better than Gal-3. METHODS AND RESULTS: This study analyzed 212 hospitalized HF patients, measuring metabolic score (composed by butyrylcarnitine, dimethylarginine/arginine ratio, spermidine, and total essential amino acids) and Gal-3...

Sustained cardiac hypertrophy (CH) is related to a variety of physiological as well as pathological stimuli and eventually increases the risk of heart failure. HOTAIR has been identified as a competing endogenous RNA in multiple human biological processes. Whether lncRNA-HOTAIR is involved in the progress of CH and how it works still remain unknown. Herein, we found that HOTAIR was down-regulated, while miR-19 was up-regulated in both heart tissues from TAC-operated mice in vivo and cultural cardiomyocytes treated with Ang-II in vitro by real-time PCR...

Heart transplantation (HT) should normalize cardiac endocrine function but brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels remain elevated after HT, even in the absence of left ventricular haemodynamic disturbance or allograft rejection. Right ventricle (RV) abnormalities are common in HT recipients (HTx), as a result of engraftment process, tricuspid insufficiency and/or repeated inflammation due to iterative endomyocardial biopsies. RV function follow-up is vital for patient management since RV dysfunction is a recognized cause of in-hospital death and is responsible for a worse prognosis...

OBJECTIVE: Plasma concentrations of B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and troponin are often measured for diagnostic purposes when patients are admitted with heart failure, but their prognostic value when measured soon after admission is uncertain. We aimed to investigate the added prognostic value of admission measurements of BNP and troponins in patients with acute heart failure. METHODS AND RESULTS: Multivariable prognostic models for death or any worsening heart failure (WHF) or rehospitalization for WHF by 30 days, 30-day death or rehospitalization for WHF, and 90-day mortality were constructed using baseline data from the Value of Endothelin Receptor Inhibition with Tezosentan in Acute heart failure Studies (VERITAS) including BNP and troponin I...

Cardiac hypertrophy is an early hallmark during the clinical course of heart failure and regulated by various signalling pathways. Recently, we observed that mouse embryonic fibroblasts from CD38 knockout mice were significantly resistant to oxidative stress such as H2 O2 -induced injury and hypoxia/reoxygenation-induced injury. In addition, we also found that CD38 knockout mice protected heart from ischaemia reperfusion injury through activating SIRT1/FOXOs-mediated antioxidative stress pathway. However, the role of CD38 in cardiac hypertrophy is not explored...

BACKGROUND: Levels of plasma brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) have been shown to be elevated in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) especially in connection with cor pulmonale (CP) and the late stages of the disease. BNP is also raised in left sided heart failure which sometimes coincides with COPD. Whether BNP is elevated in subjects with mild-moderate stable COPD and normal left ventricular function is not clear. OBJECTIVE: To investigate BNP levels in subjects with mild-moderate COPD and normal left ventricular function...

OBJECTIVE: Plasma cancer antigen (CA)-125 is a tumour marker recently shown to be associated with systolic heart failure and new-onset atrial fibrillation (AF) after myocardial infarction. However, no reports have described the relationship between CA-125 and new-onset AF in healthy postmenopausal women. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the relationship between CA-125 and new-onset AF in postmenopausal women. METHODS: Between 2005 and 2015, 2086 women, including 1012 postmenopausal women, visited our hospital for annual health check-ups...

OBJECTIVE: Increased levels of neuro-hormonal biomarkers predict poor prognosis in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) complicated by left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD). The predictive value of repeated (one-month interval) brain natriuretic peptides (BNP) and big-endothelin 1 (BigET-1) measurements were investigated in patients with LVSD after AMI. METHODS: In a sub-study of the Eplerenone Post-Acute Myocardial Infarction Heart Failure Efficacy and Survival Study (EPHESUS trial), BNP and BigET-1 were measured at baseline and at 1month in 476 patients...

B-type natriuretic peptides are markers of myocardial wall stress. BNP or NT-proBNP are used for the differential diagnosis of acute dyspnoe where normal serum concentrations make a cardiac cause unlikely. New data show their importance for risk prediction in different stages of heart failure and in primary prevention. Natriuretic peptide guided therapy improves titration of heart failure medications. Compared to BNP, NT-proBNP is better suited during therapy with the new angiotensin-rezeptor-neprilysin-inhibitor Sacubitril/Valsartan...

The potential value of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) for contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) in patients with heart failure and mid-range ejection fraction (HFmrEF) is unclear. We investigated whether NT-proBNP is associated with CI-AKI and long-term mortality following elective cardiac catheterization in patients with HFmrEF.A total of 174 consecutive patients with HFmrEF undergoing elective coronary angiography or intervention were enrolled. The primary endpoint was the development of CI-AKI, defined as an absolute increase of ≥0...

BACKGROUND: The use of posttransplant cyclophosphamide (PT-Cy) has contributed significantly to the success of haploidentical hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). Furthermore, several studies have shown promising results in the human leukocyte antigen-matched setting. However, the use of high-dose cyclophosphamide has been associated with the development of cardiomyopathy. There is a paucity of data concerning posttransplant cardiac complications in patients undergoing PT-Cy-based HCT...

Blood-based biomarkers have been extensively studied in a range of cardiovascular diseases and have established utility in routine clinical care, most notably in the diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome (e.g., troponin) and the management of heart failure (e.g., brain-natriuretic peptide). The role of biomarkers is less well established in the management of valvular heart disease (VHD), in which the optimal timing of surgical intervention is often challenging. One promising biomarker that has been the subject of a number of recent VHD research studies is high sensitivity troponin (hs-cTn)...
