D-dimer relates positively with increased blood pressure in black South Africans: the SABPA study
Introduction Hypertension is highly prevalent in black South Africans in which morbidity and mortality from stroke are on the increase. Elevated blood pressure and haemostatic markers can induce changes in blood rheology ...
Associations of suPAR with lifestyle and cardiometabolic risk factors
Background: Soluble urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR), a novel indicator of low-grade inflammation, is associated with cardiovascular disease and mortality in the general population, while an unhealthy ...
Mortality and morbidity in relation to changes in albuminuria, glucose status and systolic blood pressure: an analysis of the ONTARGET and TRANSCEND studies
(Springer Verlag (Germany), 2014)
Aims/hypothesis Urinary albumin excretion is a strong predictor of cardiovascular disease. It is uncertain whether improvement from microalbuminuria or deterioration from normoalbuminuria over time in patients with differing ...
Cardiovascular risk stratification and blood pressure variability on ambulatory and home blood pressure measurement
(Current Medicine Group, 2014)
Abstract Variability is a phenomenon attributed to most biological processes and is a particular feature of blood pressure (BP) that concerns many physicians regarding the clinical meaning and the impact on their clinical ...
Blood pressure variability in risk stratification: What does it add?
1. In this minireview we address the predictive value of blood pressure variability, over and beyond level of pressure, in randomly selected population samples. All reviewed studies had sufficient power, long follow-up ...
End-organ damage in urbanized Africans with low plasma renin levels: the SABPA study
(Taylor & Francis, 2014)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether active renin concentration is associated with markers of end-organ damage in urbanized Africans. This study forms part of the Sympathetic Activity and Ambulatory Blood ...
