Chronic defensiveness and neuroendocrine dysfunction reflect a novel cardiac troponin T cut point: the SABPA study
Background Sympatho-adrenal responses are activated as an innate defense coping (DefS) mechanism during emotional stress. Whether these sympatho-adrenal responses drive cardiac troponin T (cTnT) increases are unknown. ...
Depressive symptoms and sub-clinical atherosclerosis in Africans: role of metabolic syndrome, inflammation and sympathoadrenal function
Depressive symptoms have been consistently associated with sub-clinical atherosclerosis and future risk of coronary heart disease events. However, the pathways linking depression and coronary atherosclerosis are poorly ...
Procoagulant reactivity to laboratory acute mental stress in Africans and Caucasians, and its relation to depressive symptoms: the SABPA study
The risk of cardiovascular disease is dramatically increasing in Africans (black). The prothrombotic stress response contributes to atherothrombotic disease and is modulated by depressive symptoms. We examined coagulation ...
Chronic depression symptoms and salivary NOx are associated with retinal vascular dysregulation: the SABPA study
Background Depression has been associated with impaired nitric oxide (NO)-mediated vasodilation and vascular dysregulation (VD). Whether depression and NO levels will disturb retinal haemodynamics is not clear. Objectives ...
