The aim of the present study was to evaluate the relationship between the angiotensin I converting enzyme (ACE) gene polymorphism and ambulatory blood pressure in young normotensive males with (n=45) and without (n=100) family history of hypertension. Twenty-four hour and daytime systolic blood pressure was significantly higher in subjects with a parental… CONTINUE READING
