BACKGROUND Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and its receptor (RAGE) were known to play a pivotal role in the development of cardiovascular complications of diabetes. We investigated the association between circulating endogenous secretory RAGE (esRAGE) levels, inflammatory markers and arterial stiffness measured using brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV). METHODS The study subjects were composed of 76 type 2 diabetic patients and 78 age- and sex-matched non-diabetic subjects… CONTINUE READING
