Endothelial nitric oxide synthase haplotypes are related to blood pressure elevation, but not to resistance to antihypertensive drug therapy
(Lippincott Williams & WilkinsPhiladelphiaEUA, 2006)
Modulation of (Na,K)-ATPase activity by membrane fatty acid composition: Therapeutic implications in human hypertension
Oxidative stress (OS) plays a key role in the pathophysiology of essential hypertension and is associated with changes in the cell membrane fatty acid composition and fluidity. As (Na,K)-ATPase is modulated by the surrounding ...
Relationship between oxidative stress and essential hypertension
This study investigated the association of blood pressure with blood oxidative stress-related parameters in normotensive and hypertensive subjects. A cross-sectional design was applied to 31 hypertensive patients and 35 ...
Relationship between (Na + K)-ATPase activity, lipid peroxidation and fatty acid profile in erythrocytes of hypertensive and normotensive subjects
Oxidative stress may play a role in the pathogenic mechanism of essential hypertension. Lipid peroxidation can alter the cellular structure of membrane-bound enzymes by changing the membrane phospholipids fatty acids ...
High-intensity interval training and hypertension: Maximizing the benefits of exercise?
Essential arterial hypertension is the most common risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Regular exercise is a well-established intervention for the prevention and treatment of hypertension. Continuous ...
Left Ventricular Diastolic Function in Essential Hypertensive Patients: Influence of Age and Left Ventricular Geometry
(Sociedade Brasileira de Cardiologia - SBC, 2002-05-01)
PURPOSE - To evaluate diastolic dysfunction (DD) in essential hypertension and the influence of age and cardiac geometry on this parameter. METHODS - Four hundred sixty essential hypertensive patients (HT) underwent Doppler ...
Prevalence of Insulin Resistance and Related Risk Factors for Cardiovascular Disease in Patients With Essential Hypertension
(NATURE PUBLISHING GROUP, 2009)
BACKGROUND There is evidence that the subgroup of patients with essential hypertension who are also insulin resistant is at increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). We are unaware of the frequency of insulin resistance ...
