OBJECTIVE To assess the existence of an altered circulating pattern of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) in hypertension. DESIGN The 24 h variation in plasma CGRP was measured and compared in 10 patients affected by uncomplicated essential hypertension and in nine age- and sex-matched healthy volunteers. The diurnal variations in blood pressure, atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), plasma renin activity (PRA), plasma aldosterone and plasma cortisol were also assessed. METHODS Recumbency… CONTINUE READING
