• Patients with vascular disease and elevated serum NT-proBNP level had a lower cognition level, shorter survival time, lower renal function and a higher percentage of pathological brain imaging than patients with vascular disease. (lu.se)

  • Its natriuretic effect is affected by dopamine and dopamine receptor D1 activity in vivo Inhibits renin secretion, thereby inhibiting the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. (wikipedia.org)
  • 4 The likelihood ratio for a patient without a history of myocardial infarction, with negative results on chest radiography and electrocardiography, and with concentrations of brain natriuretic peptide below the cut off, individually and in combination, are shown in the table. (bmj.com)
  • For either peptide, the key target appears to be the ATP-gated P2X3 receptor that, widely expressed by trigeminal sensory neurons, generates fast, large excitation to release glutamate onto second-order brain neurons. (dovepress.com)
  • Brain lymphoma, sometimes called primary lymphoma of the brain, is cancer of an individual's white blood cells that starts in the brain, states MedlinePlus. (reference.com)
  • The net effect of these peptides is a decrease in blood pressure due to the decrease in systemic vascular resistance and, thus, afterload. (wikipedia.org)
