β2- and β3-Adrenoceptor Polymorphisms Relate to Subsequent Weight Gain and Blood Pressure Elevation in Obese Normotensive Individuals

High blood pressure (BP) is a major determinant of cardiovascular events in obesity. The β2- and β3-adrenoceptor polymorphisms are associated with obesity and hypertension. In the present study, we examine the relationships of β2- and β3-adrenoceptor polymorphisms with further weight gain–induced BP elevation in obese subjects. Changes in BP, body weight… CONTINUE READING
