Hyperpulsatile pressure, systemic inflammation and cardiac stress are associated with cardiac wall remodeling in an African male cohort: the SABPA study
Inflammation may contribute to an increase in cardiac wall stress through pathways related to cardiac remodeling. Cardiac remodeling is characterized by myocyte hypertrophy, myocyte death and modifications of the extracellular ...
Depressive symptoms and sub-clinical atherosclerosis in Africans: role of metabolic syndrome, inflammation and sympathoadrenal function
Depressive symptoms have been consistently associated with sub-clinical atherosclerosis and future risk of coronary heart disease events. However, the pathways linking depression and coronary atherosclerosis are poorly ...
Low grade inflammation and ECG left ventricular hypertrophy in urban African males: the SABPA study
BACKGROUND: Hypertension and vascular hyperresponsiveness have been associated with structural wall abnormalities in black Africans. Whether low grade inflammation would have an additive effect is uncertain. Therefore, ...
Defensive coping and essential amino acid markers as possible predictors for structural vascular disease in an African and Caucasian male cohort: the SABPA study
Defensive coping (DefS), oxidative stress, inflammation, and related amino acids (phenylalanine [Phe] and tyrosine [Tyr]) have been implicated in cardiovascular disease. This study assessed whether inflammation, oxidative ...
