BACKGROUND The role of eNOS gene polymorphisms on plasma nitrite or nitrate (NOx) level, endothelial function, and blood pressure (BP) remains unclear. METHODS We estimated the relationship of eNOS polymorphisms (the T(-786)C in the 5'-flanking promoter region, T(-786)C; 27-bp repeat in intron 4, eNOS4; and Glu298Asp in exon 7, G894T) with plasma NOx(More)

Hypertension remains a major contributor to the global burden of disease. The measurement of blood pressure continues to have pitfalls related to both physiological aspects and acute variation. As the left ventricle (LV) remains one of the main target organs of hypertension, and echocardiographic measures of structure and function carry prognostic(More)
