Abstract

N-Terminal proB-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) is expected as a cardiac biomarker. However, it is unknown that the diagnostic accuracy of a point-of-care NT-proBNP ELISA kit in cats with heart diseases. In this study, we examined the diagnostic accuracy of the NT-proBNP test kit in cats with...
