Let’s beat heart failure:

Heart failure (HF) is a very important public health problem in both developed and developing countries with a prevalence of about 1% of the population.

This year SensUs features NT-proBNP as its target molecule, which is a key biomarker for heart failure. But what is NT-proBNP and why is it important? And how does NT-proBNP relate to heart failure?
This page explains how the heart functions, what happens when it fails to function, and why NT-proBNP is a very useful molecule to measure with a small and rapid biosensor (text taken from www.SensUs.org).
