Depression symptoms facilitated fibrinolytic dysregulation and future coronary artery disease risk in a black male cohort: the sympathetic activity and ambulatory blood pressure in Africans study
(Wolters Kluwer, 2017)
Background: Hypercoagulation is associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). Whether depression symptoms dysregulate inflammatory and hemostatic markers in an African cohort is not known; therefore, we assessed the ...
Longitudinal changes of cardiac troponin and inflammation reflect progressive myocyte stretch and likelihood for hypertension in a Black male cohort: the SABPA study
Inflammation was cross-sectionally associated with subclinical wall remodeling and hypertension. Whether longitudinal changes (∆) in inflammation, myocyte injury (troponin T), and stretch (N-terminal-pro-B-type natriuretic ...
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring and morning surge in blood pressure in adult black and white South Africans
We examined whether there were differences in the circadian variation in blood pressure and the morning surge in blood pressure between black and white Africans. Clinic and ambulatory blood pressure data obtained from the ...
