Conditions dyspnea, peripheral edema
Phase phase 4
Sponsor Universitätsmedizin Mannheim
Start date June 2005
End date January 2016
Trial size 400 participants
Trial identifier NCT00143793, 80/05


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.
