Exercise is associated with changes in circulating B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal-proBNP (NT-proBNP). However, the biological relevance of this phenomenon is poorly examined. We sought to assess determinants of absolute (?) and relative (?%) exercise-induced changes in BNP and NT-proBNP.; BNP (n = 418) and NT-proBNP (n = 478) at rest and peak exercise were measured in patients undergoing symptom-limited cycle ergometer tests. Multivariate logistic regression was performed to identify predictors of high ?BNP/?NT-proBNP and high ?BNP/?%NT-proBNP defined as their highest quartiles (Q4).; The median (interquartile range) ?BNP and ?NT-proBNP was 12 (0-28) pg/ml and 7 (2-21) pg/ml respectively, and ?%BNP and ?%NT-proBNP was 21 (0-46) % and 7 (3-12) % respectively. Higher BNP [odds ratio (OR) 3.92 per ln unit; p > 0.001] or NT-proBNP [OR 4.88 per ln unit; p>0.001] at rest was the strongest predictor of ?BNP in Q4 (? 28 pg/ml) or ?NT-proBNP in Q4 (? 21 pg/ml). In contrast, higher maximal work rate expressed as the percentage of the predicted value (OR 1.015 per %; p = 0.007) was the only independent predictor of ?%BNP in Q4 (? 46%), and lower resting heart rate (OR 0.97 per bpm; p = 0.001) and lower age (OR 0.95 per year; p = 0.001) were the only independent predictors of ?%NT-proBNP in Q4 (? 12%).; Higher ?BNP and ?NT-proBNP primarily reflected higher BNP and NT-proBNP plasma levels at rest. In contrast, higher ?%BNP and ?%NT-proBNP were associated with several prognostically favorable features, indicating that higher ?%BNP and ?%NT-proBNP may be markers of health rather than disease.
