Chronic distress and acute vascular stress responses associated with ambulatory blood pressure in low-testosterone African men: the SABPA Study
(Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
It is known that low testosterone (T) and high cortisol levels are associated with hypertension as well as with chronic stress, linking stress with elevated blood pressure (BP). However, the association between acute ...
8-Oxo-7,8-dihydro-2’-deoxyguanosine, reactive oxygen species and ambulatory blood pressure in African and Caucasian men: the SABPA study
(Taylor & Francis, 2014)
Various studies indicate a relationship between increased oxidative stress and hypertension, resulting in increased DNA damage and consequent excretion of 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2’-deoxyguanosine (8-oxodG). The aim of this study ...
Urinary albumin excretion from spot urine samples predict all-cause and stroke mortality in Africans
(Oxford University Press, 2014)
BACKGROUND: Increased urinary albumin excretion reflects general vascular damage and predicts adverse cardiovascular and renal outcomes. Albuminuria can be determined from easily collected spot urine samples, especially ...
Compromised bioavailable IGF-1 of black men relates favourably to ambulatory blood pressure: the SABPA study
Objectives Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) has potent endothelial-protective, anti-platelet and anti-thrombotic activities, and also exerts mitogenic and proliferatory actions on vascular smooth muscle cells. Conflicting ...
