Antioxidant enzyme activity is associated with blood pressure and carotid intima media thickness in black men and women: the SABPA study
In the urbanized black population of South Africa, oxidative stress may play a crucial role in the development of hypertension. Since oxidative stress may result from impaired antioxidant capacity we aimed to investigate ...
Exploring the link between serum peroxides and angiogenesis in a bi-ethnic population from South Africa: the SAfrEIC study
Background: Reactive oxygen species (ROS) play a fundamental role in angiogenesis, and in turn, angiogenic growth factors also affect ROS. Angiogenesis and ROS are intricately involved in vascular deterioration. Since ...
Associations between reactive oxygen species, blood pressure and arterial stiffness in black South Africans: the SABPA study
(Springer Nature, 2012)
Many mechanisms, including oxidative stress, contribute to hypertension. This study investigated the possible associations between oxidative stress, blood pressure and arterial stiffness in black South Africans. Ambulatory ...
