"It's a progressive, fatal disease that we're still working very hard to figure out how to treat," says Dr. Kirkwood F. Adams Jr., a heart specialist at the University of North Carolina.
"If you have a biochemical marker that you could measure that will give you some indication of the heart function, it would be a lot less expensive" than such current physiological tests as echocardiography, he says.BNP can also be read in a physician's office, he adds: "That's very promising."
Adams is chairman of the guidelines committee of the Heart Failure Society of America, which will be releasing its updated recommendations in September.
He says the group plans to incorporate something about BNP testing in the new version, though precisely what isn't yet firm."We're still considering the best role for it," he says.
