Both blood pressure (BP) non-dipping and nighttime hypertension have been associated with accelerated target-organ damage (TOD). However, increased nighttime BP in subjects with a dipping circadian BP profile has never been reported or associated with TOD. Here, we investigated the relationships of nighttime BP with indices of vascular and kidney damage in(More)

Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 is unique among retroviruses in that infectivity requires specific incorporation into virions of the cellular protein cyclophilin A through interactions with the Gag polyprotein. Here we show that monoclonal antibody B11 1.4, which recognizes a cyclophilin-binding epitope on cyclosporine, detects denatured or native human(More)
Subendocardial viability ratio (SEVR), calculated through pulse wave analysis, is an index of myocardial oxygen supply and demand. Our aim was to evaluate the relationship between coronary flow reserve (CFR) and SEVR in 36 consecutive untreated hypertensives (aged 57.9 years, 12 males, all Caucasian) with indications of myocardial ischaemia and normal(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies using speckle tracking-derived strain for quantification of right ventricular (RV) function in pulmonary hypertension (PHT) have focused on the magnitude of global and regional peak longitudinal systolic strains (PLSS) and systolic strain-related indices of dyssynchrony. The aim of our study was to investigate the pattern of RV(More)
INTRODUCTION Kidney flow assessment and its haemodynamic surrogates, namely resistive index and renal flow reserve, may improve our understanding of the natural history of kidney dysfunction. METHODS We reviewed the literature on the common and differential effects of traditional risk factors such as essential hypertension, diabetes mellitus,(More)
