Natriuretic peptides (NP) are widely recognized as key regulators of blood pressure, water and salt homeostasis. In addition, they play a critical role in physiological cardiac growth and mediate a variety of biological effects including antiproliferative and anti-inflammatory effects in other organs and tissues. The cardiac release of NPs ANP and BNP represents an important compensatory mechanism during acute and chronic cardiac overload and during the pathogenesis of heart failure where their actions counteract the sustained activation of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone and other neurohormonal systems. Elevated circulating plasma NP levels correlate with the severity of heart failure and particularly BNP and the pro-peptide, NT-proBNP have been established as biomarkers for the diagnosis of heart failure as well as prognostic markers for cardiovascular risk. Despite activation of the NP system in heart failure it is inadequate to prevent progressive fluid and sodium retention and cardiac remodeling. Therapeutic approaches included administration of synthetic peptide analogs and the inhibition of NP-degrading enzyme neutral endopeptidase (NEP). Of all strategies only the combined NEP/ARB inhibition with sacubitril/valsartan had shown clinical success in reducing cardiovascular mortality and morbidity in patients with heart failure.
