Abstract
Statement of the Problem: N-terminal pro brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) levels are useful biomarkers for the diagnosis and prognosis of heart failure (HF) patients. However, the data on association of uric acid (UA) concentrations and NT-pro BNP are still lacking. Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: The relationships of UA, NT-proBNP, clearance of creatinine and NYHA function class and echocardiographic variables in primary care patients with HF were investigated. Results: 848 patients (402 men, 446 women) with the mean age of 70.1±7.5 SD were included in the study. NT-proBNP concentrations correlated with UA levels in both men and women after adjusting for age, body mass index (BMI) and glomerular filtration rate (r=0.096, p<0.0001; r=0.123 p<0.0001). UA concentrations rose with the severity of NYHA class and was significantly higher in patients with moderate and severe both systolic and diastolic dysfunction in a multivariate analysis. Conclusion & Significance: A positive correlation between the concentrations of UA and NT-pro BNP in patients with HF has been observed. UA levels were associated with the severity of the disease. It is suggested that the level of UA, analogically to NT-proBN may be another important biochemical biomarker of severity and prognosis among patients with HF.
