BACKGROUND Pulse pressure (an indirect measure of arterial stiffness) is a robust predictor of cardiovascular events, but its pathophysiology remains poorly understood. To gain insight into the pathophysiology of arterial stiffness we conducted an exploratory investigation of the associations of 47 circulating biomarkers in etiologic pathways of arteriosclerosis with brachial artery pulse pressure. METHODS Participants included 1,193 African-Americans and 1,145 non-Hispanic whites belonging… CONTINUE READING
