NT-proBNP and New Biomarkers in Patients With Dyspnea and/or Peripheral Edema (MANPRO)

This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants.

Michael Behnes, Universitätsmedizin Mannheim Identifier:
First received: August 31, 2005
Last updated: November 22, 2016
Last verified: November 2016

The objectives of this study are to:

  • Evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of NT-proBNP (N-terminal prohormone brain natriuretic peptide) and new biomarker measurements for the diagnosis of heart failure in patients with acute dyspnea and/or edema.
  • Determine the exact biomarker cut-off point(s) for the differentiation of healthy persons, patients with heart failure and patients with dyspnea of other origin.
  • Evaluate treatment costs in patients with dyspnea under special consideration of NT-proBNP measurement.
