to a proinflammatory response that, when sustained, adversely affects cardiac structure and function. The increased spillover into the circulation of these molecules makes them potentially useful as biomarkers that can be used to assess risk and to provide important insights into the mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of HF. Cytokines activate target cells by interacting with specific receptors that are anchored to the cell surface. The ectodermal portion of these receptors can be cleaved from the cell (...) Biomarkers in conjunction with the clinical and physical assessment can provide greater diagnostic accuracy than the physical assessment alone. The natriuretic peptides are the best-established and best-evaluated markers to help in the proper diagnosis and exclusion of HF. Numerous studies have addressed this issue, and 2 large meta-analyses have summarized the available data. , These data convincingly demonstrate that natriuretic peptide levels improve diagnostic performance in several settings
