Cardiovascular biomarkers and calculated risks - an association study

Markova Alexandra , Boyanov Mihail , Bakalov Deniz , Tsakova Adelina

The identification of type 2 diabetes patients at particularly high risk for cardiovascular events might be facilitated by the use of specific risk calculators or by measurements of serum biomarkers.Objectives: To correlate the levels of cardiovascular biomarkers – assymetric dymethylarginine (ADMA), endothelin 1 (ET-1), N-terminal brain natriuretic pro-peptide (NT-proBNP) and placental growth factor (PIGF-1), with calculated cardiovascular risks us...

Until recently primary aldosteronism /PA/ was thought to be rare, accounting for no more than 0.05–2% of the hypertensive patients. Studies published in the last decade demonstrate that primary hyperaldosteronism is a much more common cause of secondary hypertension than was previously thought, accounting for as many as 5% to 25% of hypertensives in some series. For the present, there are no data concerning the prevalence of PA in Bulgaria which determined the realization...
