ADMA Levels in End-Stage Renal Disease

Asymmetric dimethylarginine, ADMA, in plasma, is significantly elevated in patients with renal disease and associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. We found that whole blood (WB) possesses the metabolic pathways required for both the generation and elimination of ADMA and we have developed ex vivo methods to assess the WB ...

Rajavithi Health Promotion Project (Population Base Cohort)

Metabolic Syndrome (hypertension, diabetes mellitus, obesity, cerebrovascular-cardiovascular disease) In Community Survey was performed in central Bangkok. Prospective Cohort and intensive educated intervention (health promotion program in specific high risk groups) were performed. The aim of the study is to identify high risk patients who can develop serious complications from metabolic ...

Prevalence of Chronic KIdney Disease in Hypertensive Patients

This will be Cross sectional or prevalent study targeting diagnosed hypertensives aged 40 and above years, in middle to low socio-economic settings of Karachi. This proposed study will be nested in the existing Wellcome Trust funded study. The parent study is designed to determine the impact of a unique community ...

Diagnostic Properties of Aldosterone-Renin Ratio in Primary Aldosteronism Among Hypertensives.

Although primary aldosteronism (PA) was formerly seen as a rare cause of hypertension, this condition is now thought to be the commonest cause of secondary hypertension, with the prevalence ranging up to 10-15 % of all hypertensives. Identification of patients with PA allows for specific treatment, for instance unilateral adrenalectomy ...

Investigation of Genetic Risk of Metabolic Syndrome in Company Employee (NGK Study)

The metabolic syndrome is a highly prevalent disorder, which causes atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and is closely associated with insulin resistance. The alteration of the secretion of adipocytokines from accumulated visceral adipose tissue in the obese induces insulin resistance. The purpose of this study is to identify gene polymorphisms that confer ...

The Effect of Parathyroidectomy on Renal Function Endothelial Function and Blood Pressure

Secondary hyperparathyroidism (HPT) is a known complication of chronic renal failure. Elevated concentrations of parathyroid hormone (PTH) play a role not only in the pathogenesis of renal bone disease, but also in the development of cardiovascular risk factors such as disturbed lipid metabolism, glucose intolerance, and hypertension. HPT is also ...

Phase N/A

The Efficacy of Color-Doppler Ultrasonography to Assess the Renal Blood Flow With the Estimation of GFR

To validate color Doppler ultrasonography of renal arteries for the assessment of renal blood flow (RBF), we comparing left and right RBF estimates and their sum (total RBF) by echo-Doppler with data obtained by 99mTc-DTPA scintigraphy in 50 patients with hypertension and/or moderate renal failure, compared with 30 normal control ...

Phase N/A

Complications in Hypertension and Obesity

The study in aimed to investigate epidemiology of risk factors in Russian Federation its prognostic value aimed on acceptance of national specific definition of metabolic syndrome and guidelines for its management.

Phase N/A

PPARgamma Activation by Losartan in Hypertensive Patients: The Importance of Losartan-Metabolites

The losartan metabolite EXP3179 potently induces the activity of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPAR-γ) as a partial agonist in vitro. PPAR-γ is a nuclear hormone receptor and functions as a regulator of lipid- and glucose metabolism. PPAR-γ ligands improve insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance, and reduce cardiovascular morbidity and ...

Abuja Heart Study: Prospective Epidemiological Investigation of Cardiovascular Diseases

Sub-Saharan Africa continues to fight the battle of infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. But given all the international efforts geared to curing and containing these diseases, and with progress made in various countries, Sub-Saharan Africa is now heading into another type of epidemic, cardiovascular disease (CVD). Predicted ...
