IGF-1 and NT-proBNP in a black and white population: the SABPA study
Background Black populations exhibit lower concentrations of the cardioprotective peptide, insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), and are more prone to develop hypertensive heart disease than whites. We therefore determined ...
The relationship of nitric oxide synthesis capacity, oxidative stress, and albumin-to-creatinine ratio in black and white men: the SABPA study
Inadequate substrate availability and increased nitric oxide synthase inhibitor levels attenuate nitric oxide (NO) synthesis, whereas increased vascular oxidative stress may lead to inactivation of NO. We compared markers ...
