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].

Hypertension and C-reactive protein

InvestigacionesPor: Fadi G Hage.  Hypertension Research (2012) 35, 969–971.

The recently released World Health Statistics report revealed that one in every 3–4 adults aged greater than or equal to25 worldwide has hypertension.1 According to this report, hypertension is singlehandedly responsible for 13% of all global deaths, 51% of stroke deaths, and 45% of coronary heart disease deaths. Hypertension therefore remains a major public health concern that is associated with substantial healthcare costs. The majority of hypertension (with the exception of secondary hypertension) has no direct identifiable cause. (publicado: 28-10-2012)
