Bioactive Adrenomedullin (bio-ADM)

  • Bioactive form of the vasodilatory hormone Adrenomedullin (ADM)
  • Excessive ADM is the major cause of circulatory shock
  • Biomarker for prediction, diagnosis and monitoring of shock
  • Unaffected by inflammation (normal in sepsis patients w/o risk of shock)
  • Biomarker for (de)congestion in acute heart failure (Read more…)
