Relationship Among Plasma Secretory Phospholipase [a.Sub.2], Oxidized Low Density Lipoprotein & Paraoxonase Activities in Hypertensive Subjects Treated with Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitors (Report)

Relationship Among Plasma Secretory Phospholipase [a.Sub.2], Oxidized Low Density Lipoprotein & Paraoxonase Activities in Hypertensive Subjects Treated with Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitors (Report)

Background & objectives: Secretory phospholipase [A.sub.2] (sPL[A.sub.2]) and oxidized low density lipoprotein (oxLDL) are considered as oxidative and inflammatory markers. The effects of oxLDL have been shown to be inhibited by paraoxonase (PON1). This study was undertaken to investigate the relationship between oxidative and inflammatory markers in hypertensive patients with or without antihypertensive drug treatment. […]

Evaluation of Left Ventricular Structures in Normotensive and Hypertensive Subjects by Two-Dimensional Echocardiography: Anthropometric Correlates in Hypertension (Original Work) (Clinical Report)

Evaluation of Left Ventricular Structures in Normotensive and Hypertensive Subjects by Two-Dimensional Echocardiography: Anthropometric Correlates in Hypertension (Original Work) (Clinical Report)

ABSTRACT: This study was conducted with the objective to establish a nomogram for some left ventricular structures and their alterations in hypertension. Correlations between left ventricular structures and anthropometric variables in hypertension were also established. A sample of 320 normotensive and 80 hypertensive subjects were studied. Echocardiograhic end diastolic diameter, posterior wall thickness and septal […]

Association Between Genetic Variations of Apo AI-CIII-AIV Cluster Gene and Hypertriglyceridemic Subjects (Molecular Pathology and Genetics)

Association Between Genetic Variations of Apo AI-CIII-AIV Cluster Gene and Hypertriglyceridemic Subjects (Molecular Pathology and Genetics)

Rather than single gene defect, impaired functions in two or more of the many genes that control lipid transport and metabolism have been suspected to cause inherited lipoprotein disorders or atherosclerosis. The apolipoprotein (apo) AI-CIII-AIV cluster gene is one of such groups. (5) The products of apo AI, CIII, and AIV genes, together with apo […]

Introduction Since its identification in 1981, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and the associated acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) remain a major health burden globally. Recent estimates indicate that over 35 million people are affected worldwide, with mortality counts of over 20 million [1]. About 70% of these deaths have occurred in sub-Saharan Africa [1], where […]
