Abstract

Objective: Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a member of the neurotrophin family. The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between BDNF levels and prognostic markers in patients with heart failure (HF) and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), considering death or rehospitalization due to HF.
