Masked hypertension and its associated cardiovascular risk in young individuals: the African-PREDICT study
(Springer Nature, 2016)
Hypertension prevalence is increasing globally, yet little is known about the occurrence of masked hypertension (MHT) in young, sub-Saharan African adults, and how it relates to elevated cardiovascular risk. The African-PREDICT ...
Inflammation as possible mediator for the relationship between lung and artirial function
Introduction Reduced lung function is associated with a risk for the development of cardiovascular disease. This association may be due to chronic inflammation which is often present in those with reduced lung ...
A health profile associated with excessive alcohol use independently predicts aortic stiffness over 10 years in black South Africans
(Wolters Kluwer, 2017)
Objective: Black populations exhibit higher arterial stiffness than whites and suffer a disproportionate burden of cardiovascular disease. It is therefore important to identify modifiable health behaviours predicting large ...
Large artery stiffness is associated with salt intake in young healthy black but not white adults: the African-PREDICT study + Correction to article
Purpose There is global consensus on the benefits of reducing excessive salt intake. Indeed, lower salt intake associates with reduced arterial stiffness, a well-established predictor of cardiovascular risk, in older ...
Early vascular aging in the HIV infected: is arterial stiffness assessment the ideal tool?
(Taylor & Francis, 2017)
Pulse pressure amplification and its relationship with age in young, apparently healthy black and white adults: the African-PREDICT study
Background Pulse pressure amplification (PPA), i.e. the amplification from central arteries to the periphery, is inversely related to arterial stiffness, organ damage and mortality. It is known that arterial stiffness is ...
Ethnic differences regarding arterial stiffness of 6‐8‐year-old black and white boys
(Wolters Kluwer, 2017)
Objectives: Vascular deterioration is suggested to occur earlier in black than white populations, thereby increasing their risk for developing hypertension. To establish whether this is the case, we compared different ...
Central systolic pressure and a nonessential amino acid metabolomics profile: the African prospective study on the early detection and identification of cardiovascular disease and hypertension
(Wolters Kluwer, 2019)
Objectives: Early-life exposures to cardiovascular risk factors may manifest as early vascular ageing, a phenomenon to which black populations are more prone. The metabolome provides insight into the current state and ...
