Serum C-reactive protein level and prehypertension in two Asian populations

InvestigacionesPor: C Sabanayagam, A Shankar, J Lee, T Y Wong y E S Tai.  Journal of Human Hypertension (2013) 27, 231–236.

Few previous studies in Western populations have reported an association between C-reactive protein (CRP) and prehypertension. However, no previous study has examined this association in Asians. We examined individuals who were free of hypertension from two independent population-based studies in Singapore: the Singapore Prospective Study Programme (SP2, n=2843 Chinese, Malay and Indians aged greater than or equal to24 years) and the Singapore Malay Eye Study (SiMES, n=957 Malays, aged 40–80 years). Prehypertension was defined as systolic blood pressure (BP) 120–139 mm Hg or diastolic BP 80–89 mm Hg. CRP was analyzed as categories (<1, 1–3, >3mgl). [Actualizado: 20 de marzo de 2013].
