BACKGROUND Risk factors for atherosclerosis such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, obesity and dyslipidemia affect endothelial function and stimulate adhesion molecules expression. The aim of the study was to examine endothelial activation in type 2 diabetes and hypertension as indicated by adhesion molecule levels and further to investigate whether the coexistence of the above conditions has a different effect. METHODS Serum levels of soluble E-selectin, ICAM-1 and VCAM-1 were measured in 17… CONTINUE READING
