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 ...

Phase N/A

High Blood Pressure Strategy (HBPS)

Approximately 5,000 patients will participate in the study at 11 family practice sites throughout Ontario. Each of the 11 clinic sites will be randomised to either intervention or delayed intervention 9 months later. The intervention is a systems change involving interprofessional education and management tools to bring together physicians, nurses ...

Phase N/A

The Therapeutic Effect of Bromocriptin in Patients With Primary Aldosteronism

Primary aldosteronism (PA), a common curable disease of hypertension, is characterized by inappropriate production of aldosterone, which is at least partially autonomous of the renin-angiotensin system. A recent clinical study reported that patients with PA experience a higher sate of a higher rate of cardiovascular events than those with essential ...


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

Acupuncture and Laser Acupoint Treatment on Hypertension

The specific aims of the study are to test the effectiveness of acupuncture and laser acupoint on hypertension. The hypothesis is: the stimulation of a pattern of acupoints with acupuncture and laser will result in significant reductions in blood pressure. The points that are going to be used for the ...


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

Antihypertensive Effect of Simvastatin in Hypertensive Patients

This is a randomized double blind parallel clinical trial where hypertensive patients with controlled or uncontrolled blood pressure and without evidence of target-organ damage will be selected. Subjects will receive Simvastatin 40 mg once daily or placebo and a baseline and eight weeks ABPM will performed. The main outcome will ...


Aliskiren and Muscle Sympathetic Nerve Activity

Cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality are frequently occurring problems in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Apart from the so called traditional risk factors, also risk factors more or less specific to CKD contribute in the pathogenesis of these problems. There is strong evidence that the sympathetic hyperactivity, which often characterizes ...


The Effect of Acupuncture on Blood Pressure and Heart Rate Variability (HRV)

Outcome measurements include blood pressure and heart rate variability.


Coreg CR Blood Vessel Stiffness and Blood Vessel Function

The following techniques will be used: Endothelial function will be measured non-invasively by flow-mediated changes in pulsatile blood volume in the finger-tips. Vascular compliance (stiffness) will be assessed by tonometry of the radial pulse wave ("augmentation index") and diastolic puse wave analysis. Plasma nitrate/nitrite levels mirror NO production and will ...
